SHS Photo Challenge 25

Spring is really starting to wake things up around here and stirring the old notion of spring cleaning as well as the desire to be outside more often.  Even though the weather was quite gray and wet this week it was so much warmer and I have traded in my winter coat for a spring jacket.
I started my hip and knee recovery class at the pool this week and yesterday was able to walk up and down a whole flight of stairs alternating steps just like all you normal people.  Woohoo,  healing is happening, be it ever so gradual.  So thankful to be almost pain free.  Time to get to the big reveal, so here we go . . .

1.  Clouds
 This archived shot could actually work for three of these prompt . . . clouds, sun flare, angle shot.  Taken at my beloved Surrey Lake Park last August.  The weather was just not cooperating for a great cloud shot this week.

2.  Sun Flare
 We had one sunny day so I got my sun flare, but not clouds . . . which is generally a good thing (except when you have a clouds prompt).

3. Seven
 Okay, this was taken 2 weeks ago . . . seven beaming crocus.  They were begging for an appearance in the hunt and I could not deny them.

4. High Angle 
 Went shopping with my girls this week (with camera, of course) and snapped this high angle shot at Metropolis at Metrotown Mall in Burnaby.

5. Low Angle
As these were just about eye level, I interpret that as a low angle.  
Beauty found down the lane . . . amidst garbage cans and recycle bins, litter and signs urging 'slow down, children at play'.

I should make my own sign  . . . "Slow down, photographers at play" . . . you could come play too.  
Linking up with my wonderful playmates at Ashley's Rambling & Photos.

  13. Dear Andrea Dawn,

    I think it's funny that you and I interpreted high and low angle completely the opposite of one another. I love your Surrey Lake Park pics so much!

  15. Hi Andrea - #1 Clouds is my favourite. Unusual angle shot of the grass - great cloud detail with lots of interest - and just a hint of sun. I really enjoy your photography...keeps providing fresh inspiration to get out the camera again.
