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.

Camp One Iron Ring

Abstract, Camp One Iron Ring, Iron Ring, U of T, University of Toronto

An image of the Camp One Iron Ring office at the University of Toronto which is the office that manages the replacement of lost rings. The office had an old feel to it and since it brought back so many memories I decided to go with the sepia look. If you’d like to know more about the iron (more…)

Another collage from our day touring the micro breweries of North County San Diego. This is a brand new brewery (Offbeat Brewing Company)that had just opened up a few weeks before our visit; at the time they were only offering four kinds of beer! Considering how new the place is, I offered to give my images to one of the owners so if they ever use it its with my consent 🙂 (for those that are aware of my story with the Marriot)

Walls

“There are four kinds of people in the world, Ms. Harper. Those who build walls. Those who protect walls. Those who breach walls. And those who tear down walls. Much of life is discovering who you are. When you find out, you also realize there are places you can no longer go, things you can no longer do, words you can no longer say.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

Airport, black & white, monochrome, Symmetry, movator, moving walkway, Toronto Pearson Airport

This week’s photo challenge is about something that is Big; larger than life. Here is the biggest terminal (Terminal 1) in the biggest airport in Canada (Toronto’s Pearson International). This is just a portion of the US side of the terminal, there is an international side of the terminal and the reason for this is because you clear US customs in most Canadian Airports. Technically this picture was taken in an area that is under US law which makes arriving at your destination a much more convenient process; since you’ve already gone through the hassle of clearing customs you just pick up your luggage and go.

**** Update: After a week of playing hard ball with me, in less than 24 hrs of posting this post it was finally removed. I don’t how but maybe social media does work 🙂

Yesterday’s post was about what makes me happy but today’s post is about something that is making me angry! I’m definitely feeling like a small man knocking on the bully’s door and he is refusing to acknowledge me… you’ll notice that I’m adding a little blurb under my images because of this incident. Here is what is going on, sometime last week I wanted to try the google search by images feature by using one of my own (more…)


Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy

Airport, Collage, Flying, Plane, Weekly Photo Challenge

For this week’s photo challenge, the theme is happy and one of things that really makes me happy is travelling. In last week’s entry, I mentioned that life experiences is what I seek and for me there is no better life experience than travelling and seeing what this beautiful planet has to offer. The destination is not as important, there is something about getting on a plane and landing in a whole different city and potentially culture in a few hours; its a very humbling experience, it puts the things that real matter in life in perspective, and that just makes me happy… 🙂
