Daily Prompt: Snapshot Stories

It’s time for another Daily Prompt.

This is me when I was 4 years old. I remember it was a short trip to a park for a picnic with my Preschool, and I went on the swings with my classmates. I look like I’m a plotting something in the picture, but I think I was just caught by surprise :p. Later on, I tried to go up the tallest slide, but I fell and landed on the gravel (ouch!). I, of course cried, but I kept going :p. I just went to another tall slide and my mom took a picture of me with a look of terror. When I was little, I had a fear of slides, but for some weird reason I still tried to go on them. I blame it on both of my parents; my dad hates heights, my mom loves adrenaline.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Split-second story in Toronto and Niagara Falls

It’s time for another Photo Challenge! Here are some photos for your enjoyment:

 DSC02274

Rogers Centre is home to the Toronto Blue Jays. Basically, the team you want to use as a diversion, when people start talking to you about the Maple Leafs. But, I’m a Canucks fan forever :p! Ontario hasn’t changed my loyalty.

This photo shows you just how tall the CN Tower is.

This photo was taken in Niagara Falls. The photo is a bit blurry, but it gives a sort of fairytale feel to it 🙂

Everyone who goes in one of these rides have a story; a wedding, birthday, spontaneous family outing. I love horses 😀

I was in my friend’s car and we took her two dogs to the dog park. I snapped this photo on the way. Dogs just love to stick their heads out the window. They get amused by the most simple things in life 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist

*sings* Come on baby, let’s do the twist, take my little hand and go like this. Now that we have broken the ice by singing to Chubby Checker, we can now move on to this week’s photo challenge. The Daily Post wants to know, “What does ‘twist’ means to you?”

Nature is a perfect twist maker. I love hearts and I often tend to find these shapes around nature

Sometimes, your hands and arms don’t cooperate when you’re trying to take a picture, but if you look at the bright side, the results can create a mysterious feeling! The second photo below is a combination of two photos. The background is very much the original and the people were taken from another photo (of the same set of pictures) where two people turned out looking like shadows/ghosts :p.

Random Photo(s) of the Day #16 – Inside a water bottle

I was feeling curious, so I took photos of the inside of my water bottle full of water and ice! It’s amazing how something so simple can be transformed into a different world. My friend thought it was an ocean wave!

This is inside a church. I love this mural!

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.

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!

Villain – A to Z Challenge

A to Z challenge letter: V

Villain

I tried to be one in high school, but did it work? Nope, it was a complete failure (I thought dyeing my hair purple made me evil). I don’t think I’d ever become a villain, and if I ever become one, I’d turn out to be a confused one. In all honesty, I’m one of those people who think they could use dark powers for the good of mankind. Could that be possible? Let’s think about a moment in our lives where we could have turned to the dark side. For me, I did have a chance to make fun of others, and for a second I wanted to, because they had done it to me before. I wanted to make fun of those who teased me. I thought I could use their evil power to turn it against them. But, revenge is an evil power of its own. You can’t obtain an evil power and use it to do good. Evil powers are a repeated cycle that wraps your mind and body in darkness. It feeds on its host until one cannot find a way back. So, would I suck as a villain? At first, yes, but there would a point of no return, and my goodness would fade until I recognize myself no more. So, I’ll just stay on the good side, being a villain seems like too many worries.
