Weekly Photo Challenge: Work of Art

It’s Friday (technically Saturday where I live) and it’s time for another Photo Challenge. Art is everywhere and if you use your imagination, you can discover different worlds. Here’s my take on Work of Art! Enjoy and have an amazing weekend!!! :D. Remember to spread the love ❤

Nature is art, and it provides inspiration to your imagination. This place made me feel like anything could happen. You know, like me finding the ring of power and defeating Sauron.

Ellie’s Photography

I hope everyone is doing awesome today! We had rain here in Ontario but no thunderstorm, so I didn’t almost get hit by lightning like yesterday o_O. To celebrate my survival, here are some more photos from Vancouver (feeling homesick)! Enjoy 🙂

I almost got struck by lightning.

Mother Nature strikes again – pun intended – and I was almost electrocuted by her. Because Ontario winter wasn’t enough to diminish any hopes of emotional attachment towards this province, Mother Nature decided to set a spark close to me and almost set me on fire. Sure, I’m exaggerating, but I did feel a shock and saw a spark coming out of my umbrella. I wasn’t walking with it, I was just standing outside my workplace ready to walk to my ride. Luckily, nothing worse happened. I like watching thunderstorms when I’m inside, but it’s a whole different experience when I’m in the middle of it.

Ah well, I shall not let this get to me. I’ll tell this story to my grandchildren someday, while we sit near the fireplace roasting marshmallows. Nature can still be beautiful, and this IS a lovely province. It’s just Mother Nature has some grudge against it. What have you done before I moved here, Ontario? Here’s a picture of how great nature can be:

Random Photo of the Day #15 – Encounter with a squirrel

I haven’t snapped photos of squirrels in a long time. In fact, I forgot that I ever took any – that is until I found these photos. Squirrels are very fast, unless they freeze in fear when you approach them. Today, I saw a squirrel munching on some goodies next to a fence. I tried to pass it without it noticing, but of course that didn’t work. It stared at me for a second and I thought it was going to jump on me. I stood still and it tried to run under the fence, but it wouldn’t find an entry point, so it tried to run to the opposite side of the street, but then a car drove by, so it tried to go back under the fence, but failed again. It froze for a second on the sidewalk and then as soon as the car was gone, it ran to the opposite side.

It is true, a lot of animals are more afraid of you than you are of them. Poor thing probably thought I was going to step on it. I just stood and watched as the cuteness unfolded. 

Here are some pictures of a squirrel from a long time ago!

More flower centrepieces

This Spring/Summer I’m going to spend time doing old hobbies of mine; flower arrangements and painting. I’ll probably start with painting, but we’ll see! My life is hectic enough, and I don’t want to overwhelm myself with too many hobbies going on the same time :p. Here are more pictures of more centrepieces I’ve done :).

Random Photo(s) of the Day #15 – Mr. Seagull

I haven’t done my random photo of the day in a while! I’ve been concentrating on the A to Z challenge, but now that it’s over, I’m bringing these posts back :). Today’s photos featured Mr. Seagull. The only time I like seagulls is when they’re photogenic and stay away from my food. In the first picture, you can see the shadow of a crow. Enjoy!

More of my flower arrangements

Hi everyone! I hope today was a good day :). I talked about one of my hobbies in another post, and I wanted to share more photos with you! These are centrepieces I made for events. Usually, I’ll make bigger flower arrangements for occasions like Mother’s Day, Birthdays, etc. Enjoy :).

I walked home with a rabbit last night

Okay that sounds weird, but it’s sort of true. Half way home, I encountered a rabbit that was hopping on the grass. It hopped/walked with me for about a block, before it made its way to a nearby backyard. I didn’t want to take a picture, because I didn’t want to scare it, but it was a fun encounter. It looked average size, which I’m a bit surprised considering the trash in Ontario seems to be good enough to make the wild life grow twice their size. Then again, it probably means not a lot of food is being wasted. I have yet to see a raccoon, and when I do, I hope it’s not a rabid one. 

I’d like to know why animals like to follow me. Perhaps it’s because I have the same schedule as a wild animal? Or am I turning into Snow White? I’m going to guess the former, because my singing sounds like demons pitchforking a thousand lost souls at once. Every time I see an animal outside, I want to adopt it, but I resist the urge due to the fact it’d be unfair to steal their freedom. If you see a rabbit, raccoon, fox, don’t be afraid (unless they’re charging towards you) and admire the beauty nature has to offer. Whenever I see raccoons outside at night, they don’t really care about what I’m doing, which means they want to get to their home safely just like you do. 

Just something to think about for today. Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, so we must take this moment to appreciate everything around us, because if it weren’t for our mums (and dads) we wouldn’t be here at all. I’m adding-on a bottle of Advil for my mum for all the headaches I have given her (well, I wasn’t bad, but you know, I still gave her headaches at times). 

PS: I love to look at this photo. It takes me on an imaginary parallel universe 🙂
