I loved the way the entire background of this photo just disappeared and made the red bouys on the boat pop out. It caught the corner of my eye as I was driving to Bonavista. I issued the common cry on our Newfoundland adventure: "Whoa! Photo Opp!!!"

After I did up this photo, I noticed how much it actually did look like a heart. That wasn't intentional. It was chosen for the intensity of the colour and the fact that even snails and seaweed can be be attractive.

Now here's a lesson that we should all take to heart. How often do we think that we're not actually accomplishing much unless we're running around like fools. It would suit a turtle photo with 'GOING' instead of 'Growing'.

This was taken on one of those nights that you can barely take your eyes off the sky. We were driving home from Gander, doing the best we could to not keep pulling over every two minutes. It was certainly a memorable and remarkable journey.

Yes, I know - it is a fairly obvious quote for a photo of two bees - not all that imaginative. But at least I resisted the incredible urge to write 'Two Bee or not Two Bee'. By the way - does anyone actually ever answer this question?

This is an evening that will stand out in my memory. The clouds were lit by the midnight moon for hours on end. Reds and deep greens were dispersed amongst the soft billows, making them even more surreal and magical.

I think that sea urchins are particularly magical gifts from the sea. Underneath those ugly prickles is the most intricate, beautiful design. They would appear to be so delicate and fragile but they withstand the winds & weather and a thousand pecks from the gulls.
That seems to be the cry of the latter part of our lives. The first part tends to be rushing and bustling around, gathering and accumulating. The next part is when we come to realize that simplification is quite often the answer.

I thought that it might be handy if you were launching yourself on a wave, to have a buoy. This collection that I found hanging on the side of a building in Newfoundland, looked like a bunch of party balloons to me. Buoy, life's one big party.

I suppose there is some truth to that. Interesting study on the perception of authority and professionalism with the trend toward the casual workplace dress code. I do agree that one takes someone in business clothes a lot more serious than Bermuda shorts and sandals.

Thomas Edison was all about 'opportunity'. While he was working here in Stratford, Ontario at 19, he invented an automatic telegraph system so he could send a signal each hour while he slept. Ingenious, even though he lost (or almost lost, depending on the source) that particular job.

The most memorable stay that I have ever had in a hotel was here, in Casa Santo Domingo in Antigua, Guatemala. Built within the ruins of a Monastery from the 1500's, it is like staying in a museum. The 17th century art, hydrangea as big as your head, parrots and pool were beautiful, but it was the thousands of candles lit each night that made it pure magic.
