Yay . . . it is show and tell time. Once again I am dipping into the archives for all but one of my shots. I have been home from the hospital for 6 days now and have had my ups and downs but am definitely improving. Big thank you's to all who have kept me in prayer. I am really looking forward to the time I can get around a little easier with my camera and get those awesome fresh shots. My around the home shot is new from yesterday and is certainly a stretch but I had to fit it in somewhere.
To get the lowdown on the rules, hop on over to Ashley Sisk's Ramblings & Photos . . .
This week's clues were:
(1) Mostly one colour, (2) Around the Home, (3) Reflection, (4) Writing and (5) Water
1. Mostly One Colour
This shot was taken summer of 2010 at Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg, Ontario. The site is home to an authentic 1860's historical village along the Saint Lawrence River. These are bags of flour stacked in the flour mill.
2. Around the HomeThis Great Blue Heron is something I would not normally see "around the home", but as I was standing at the kitchen sink yesterday, I looked up and there, perched on my neighbour's roof barely 10 feet from my window, was this magnificent creature. He appears to be missing his right leg and I was greatly encouraged by his visit. If he can get along with only one leg, I can wait patiently for my healing to come.
Duck in shallow water at Surrey Lake Park, one of my favourite hang outs.
This is a photo of an airmail letter sent from Holland by my grandfather, Lawrence Hawkenson to my grandmother Blanche and her kids. The date . . . 25 September 1944. He was a sapper with the 9th Canadian Field Squadron, WW2.
I love this sunset silhouette of three girls in the water's edge at Crescent Beach.
Thanks for letting me play along even though I can't get many fresh shots right now. It is such a pleasure to connect with you all this way. Now to link up and check out the other submissions.
