Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

Picture of Thank you Jar, Thank you, Merci, Abstract Photo

There is so much to be thankful in this life but I wanted this post to be about you, the reader. From the second that I took this image (5 months ago), I’ve had this post in mind and I was waiting for the right opportunity that finally presented itself🙂 I just wanted to say thank you for following my posts for the past year or so, it really has been an amazing experience for me and I hope you have enjoyed my almost daily posts. With that being said, all good things must come to an end… I’ve decided to move on to a self-hosted blog (http://www.2riversphotos.com) that I will transfer all this content to. I’m not sure if my contacts got transfered over there as there is no mention of it but I hope that you’ll come and follow me. I’m still working on a few things and hope to make the switch over the weekend, you’ll definitely know.

Regardless if you decide to follow me or not on my new website… this is the right time for me to say THANK YOU / MERCI🙂 Its been an absolute blast.

Field Level

Field Level access at the Rogers Center to a Blue Jays game. This was Blue Jays vs the Oakland Athletics which they went on to lose the game; I’m not a baseball expert but apparently the Jays are making some major moves in the off-season.

Scripps Pier

Yesterday’s post was about Pacific Beach’s Pier and today’s post is just a few miles further north, Scripps Pier in La Jolla. This pier unlike the others in San Diego, is not open to the public but is mostly used for research by UCSD; to be more specific its part of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP).

My entry for this week’s photo challenge is the entrance of the Mechanical Engineering building at the University of toronto. I just wonder how many generations have walked through these doors with renewed hopes of a brighter future ahead. It seems like it was yesterday that we walked out of these same doors into the real world… there has been 12 classes since us!
