About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

Monochrome Weekly


On Saturday, we took advantage of the balmy, sunny weather and took a stroll down along the river in Deas Park. Here's one of the shots I took that I turned it into black and white. Be sure to click on the photo to enlarge it.

Keep an eye out for ABC Wednesday this week when I will be posting a colour slide show of our visit to the park.

MM is hosted by Aileni and you can contribute and/or see other contributions here.

I think it must be Fall.

Somehow the use of monochrome here enhanced the feeling of sadness that one often gets in the autumn.

I like that so much in monochrome.

It has a charm of its own in monochrome.

B&w sometimes is better than colored ones! Lovely!

Deas Park? Now that's somewhere I've never visited.

Maybe next time ....!

DAVID!!! Oh my gosh, thanks for popping by and sorry I missed you. Deas Park is near the Massey (formerly Deas) Tunnel that takes you to the Victoria ferries. I was there trying to recapture a shot I got a couple of years ago of rowers on the tributary of the Fraser River when it was a gorgeous, sunny day and the tress were resplendent in their fall glory, reflecting in the water. But...no luck - no rowers and I was a bit too late for the colours. COME BACK ANYTIME!

The fallen leaves on the ground is looking good in monochrome :)

I had to enlarge this so I could see all of the detail. Fabulous.
