Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

It’s Friday people!!!!!! I hope you’re all done your work for today and are ready to enjoy the weekend, and even if you have to work on the weekend, I hope all goes well! I love weekends, regardless of whether I have to work or not. There’s something about the word ‘weekend’ that makes it sound relaxing. Today also brings another Weekly Photo Challenge. I have 2 photos to share, showing a different perspective of street life. 

This photo was taken in Toronto on a calm day, showcasing a view of the CN Tower (it may look small, but it’s huge). I snapped the photo during a weekday, which is why the streets don’t look as busy as they usually are. You learn to appreciate the city more when you have it this way. 

ImageHere’s a photo taken during the Winter Olympics in Vancouver 2010. I wanted to show this, because this is what life was like during the Olympics. It was hectic, but it was fun. There was a huge diversity of people from all over the world, everyday during the event. I miss it, it was a celebration everyday throughout the entire city and where they held the winter games. I’m glad I was part of it all!

I hope you enjoyed these photos. Take care and live happily! You’re breathing today and that’s a gift 🙂

Random Photo of the Day #5…with a Story Starter!

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. I’m stuck indoors, because we have a freezing rain warning (Ontario is still stuck in Winter). So, it’s time for another random photo!

I starter a new blog posts series today, so if you want to check it out, here it is: Through the eyes of my childhood

This photo was taken in Vancouver, BC, in 2010. It was the year of the Winter Olympics and I was living there then. Honestly, it was such a great time for the city! Lots of events, lots of athletes, and of course the Olympic cauldron. I witnessed the Olympic torch being carried throughout the city, met Walter Gretzky (hockey fans know who he is), and ice skater Patrick Chan (who won silver at Sochi). Overall, it was good times!

Story Starter: The incandescent fire was felt through their hands, as they sat by fire not only for warmth, but to light their damaged hearts…

Of course! The world sort of rules me today (freezing rain)!
