energy


all kinds of crazy
grab-it-while-you-can
energy
was flying around in the skies above
and in the skies of my mind ....

tulips

potted tulips - 
the simplest and most wonderful splash of spring colour inside, 
when there isn't much colour outside!

riding it out . . .

hovering between nothingness and eternity . . . a seagull rides out another wintry storm . . .

pavement art (2)

i used to be a real admirer of victor vasarely's art . . . . on my way home i noticed these little frost heaves were somehow magically free of the ice and snow that fell all day long . . .
they reminded me of victor's work . . .

pavement art

the recent ice storm created some really lovely scenes that looked almost as if they were graphite pencil renderings . . . .

brave signs

even as it snowed this morning, these brave signs of the coming good poked their green heads above ground for a look-see . . .

looking down my street

a glorious afternoon . . . way high above there's a cobalt blue sky . . .

shift

i love the detail, the sensuality of winter. 
but i am also loving the sudden shift into warmer weather . . .

seeing out the ice

"His feathers glowed brilliant white now,
and his wings were smooth and perfect as sheets of polished silver."

the fingers of spring

are reaching back very early this year to draw us all forward and out of the winter grey-scale . . .

the last of the ice

well maybe . . . if you love old glass then this is your most lucky time as the ice that is left is so much like glorious ripply wavy old glass . . . .

i have no doubt

i have no doubt that the beauties of winter are leaving us . . .

i came across this conglomeration of ice chunks at a curve in the river . . .




and as i worked around it, i noticed this beautiful little solitaire of ice parked on top . . . chance? coincidence?



nope. i think not . . . .

crossing the bridge in late winter

the view from the pedestrian bridge . . . looking down into the chilly march waters of the otonabee river . . .

along the wires

i love when the late sun catches the overhead wires ever so slightly and makes them shine . . .

mostly grey scale

walking in this morning . . . mostly grey-scale, but the local star was doing its very very best to bust through or burn off the cloud cover . . .
