A Photo a Week Challenge – Water

…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo a Week Challenge

Water…..where do I begin?  I live next to a huge body of water, Lake Ontario and I spend much of my summer at the cottage next to Georgian Bay. I literally have thousands of photos of water. Here is one of my more recent ones.fullsizeoutput_6fc9

A Photo a Week Challenge – The Devil is in the Details

…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo A Week Challenge

At the beginning of the summer I went to the ROM and took in a show called Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion. This wonderful designer creates fashion that is a form of art that is closely related to her and her body. Her garments combine the often friction-filled world of technology and nature. She pushes the limits of haute couture.

Word of the Day Challenge – Patterns

….the word for Word of the Day Challenge is patterns

Patterns are everywhere. Some are man-made and others occur naturally in nature.
