Bowring Park Again

I went back to the park again today to take more pictures of the waterfalls and river (they turned out pretty well the same as yesterday's pictures). While I was taking pictures of the falls there were 2 young boys very interested in what I was doing. They were looking over my shoulder when I had the camera on the tripod. I showed them the pictures on the back screen and they were pretty impressed, I got a "Cool" and a thumbs up. Then they decided to climb around the waterfalls so of course I took a picture.

Bowring Park

I went to the park today with my tripod and ND8 filter to capture the flowing went pretty well. The top picture is the Waterford River and the waterfall runs into a very small pool/pond.

Blue Jay

A Blue Jay on my deck in the rain getting peanuts I threw out for him. There were 2 out there, last fall I'd sometimes get 7 at a time.

Lots of Crocuses

This little mound (I think it's called the peace mound) in Bannerman Park is full of crocuses every spring. There are dark and light purple, white, striped white & purple crocuses there and teeny tiny yellow ones.

Saw this cute barn/shed whe we were out for a drive in Topsail this afternoon. For some reason I like old red sheds. This looks old but kept up.

Red and Green

A rainy, cold day today, no chance of taking pictures outside. So instead here's a picture of some red and green healthy food.

Yes, it's snowing. It'll probably all melt tomorrow.

Rennie's River

Rennie's River in the middle of the city, heavy with rain and spring run off.

My Easter Lily is in full bloom now with 11 flowers in blossom. I'm finding it hard to get a good shot of all of the blossoms together though.

The Fog

I went to Signal Hill this morning. It was sunny up there but the city was covered in fog, making it pretty neat looking. The first picture shows the harbour covered in fog, the 2nd is the office building Joe works in.

Foggy Night

Quidi Vidi Village in the fog. I've never taken a picture on a foggy night before. A clear night, yes, but not a foggy one. This is a 2 second exposure.

Sail "art" on the harbour front, it's fairly new, less than a year old. We walked down Water Street and back up the harbour front this afternoon, it was sunny and about 9ÂșC, the wind was chilly.

Yellow Flowers

Flowers I bought at the grocery store for Easter.

Wednesday, April 12, 2006


I went out in search of crocuses today and it's still a little early for them. The first picture was taken in Bannerman Park, there were only a few crocuses up. They are very tiny, too, smaller than a quarter. The 2nd picture was taken in Bowring Park, as you can see they're not even open yet.

Taken at The Rooms (provincial art gallery/museum) this morning.

Not the most exciting picture, but 4 days ago my planter box was covered in snow. Now the snow is melting (although there is still a ton on the front lawn) and the tulips and daffodils are sprouting.

Or a float, or a bumper. I once posted a picture of one of these on the internet and was corrected, someone said it wasn't a buoy. I call them all buoys. And how do you pronounce it? I say "boy", others say "bu-ee". Perhaps "boy" is a Newfoundland pronunciation.

What Do Daffodils Do?

Yesterday I bought a bunch of daffodils like I do every spring from the Canadian Cancer Society. They're blooming and beautiful, and make me think of the song that the little girl used to sing on the TV commercials:

What do daffodils do?
They laugh at winter and spring right through
If they can turn rainy skies sunny, I can try too
That's what, that's what daffodils do

A feather on a dictionary. I adjusted the colour to sepia.

I took a picture looking down into a wine glass filled with blue water. It was boring so I used the kaleidoscope filter in PSP to make this.
