Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Candid

…thanks to Ann-Christine for hosting this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge

Candid shots are the ones where your subject is unaware that they’re being photographed. There are photographers who specialize in street photography where they almost exclusively take candid shots.IMG-2798

It’s a Jungle Out There

….amazing how much a garden can grow and go wild in the space of a few weeks

Now that our daughter and son-in-law are living at the camp up at Sparrow Lake they have to rely on family and friends to mind the garden in Hamilton while they’re away. I brought Gaelan home for the weekend and we were amazed at how much the garden had grown despite the efforts of well meaning family members.

In all fairness to everyone involved I have noticed, even here at home, how quickly the weeds can go from 0 to 5 feet in a matter of days.
