I loved the faded red paint against the weathered grey wood...and yes, I did redden it up a little in phototshop because I really wanted to bring out the texture of those boards.
For more great shots of red visit Ruby Tuesday hosted by Marytheteach right here :

which later tonight,
curled in a tight
(right hook, left hook,)
punch out my lights,
stroke a sweet melody
(oh baby, my heart's on fire)
from these taut strings.
Your tender voice
(so dark the night, baby hold me tight),
erodes my soul.
(softly my soul slips into yours)
than any blow
(dark night delight)

When I played with the photo in Photoshop it was interesting to see how the deer's fur blended with the colour of the dry grass.

This past weekend we had some more blue sky days.

Every Tuesday there are beautiful photo's...with some cheerful red in them. Some have a lot of red...some have a very little. In my picture you get to play 'spot the red'...because it's a very little! I took this picture on a deserted West Coast beach last summer and I don't think I even noticed the little red lady at the time!

I didn't know they had a meaning so I asked around. Here's the answers I got:-
They're selling drugs somewhere near here.
It's gang territory.
Someone lost their virginity.
..or my favourite...
Someone didn't like their sneakers!
There's some interesting information (and photo's) on these websites
And here's some more shoes drying out in the weekend's sunshine outside our neighbours house.

Two shots this week, one taken outside in my local park where a group of birch trees cast their shadows on the snow.
And one taken inside at my local mall.
This patch of light made for some very effective shadows and people don't seem to mind you pointing your camera at their feet. This woman, busy texting, didn't notice me at all.

Alberta specializes in big blue skies and yesterday's was a buster.

Spring is here!
Thursday, April 9, 2009
Before winter is finally vanquished, I thought I would just post a couple of pictures taken back in January when it really was cold.
.It was -40c and a week or so after Christmas the day I went for a meal at with friends at a great little cafe in a small town just outside the city. We stopped many times on the drive out to take pictures. The colours were dramatic but it was hard to hold the camera in those temperatures. When we finally made it to our destination we were ready to warm up with steaming bowls of soup. These horses didn't seem to mind the cold but I hope someone gave them some warm mash for their supper.

Walking around the neighbourhood I began to notice chairs and benches...all of them obviously waiting for the sun. Waiting for the spring warmth to release them from their winter sleep, waiting for the snow to melt, and their wood to warm so that they become once again inviting places for folk to sit and contemplate life for a while.
Here's a few photos of those benches as they start to stir after their long winter hibernation.
