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.

I is for IMAGES

I couldn't think of much to celebrate this week's letter I for ABC Wednesday. Finally, I decided to show you four of my favourite images that are indicative of the seasons here. I hope you like the ones I've chosen.

one of our many gorgeous fuschias
grandson's toy truck in Autumn
sunset at Deas Park in Winter

Fuschia's! I adore them. They are such a delicate flower. Lovely shot of its dangle in the wind.

I is for images.

I'll bet your grandson gets hours of enjoyment out of that little toy truck. It's the simple things that make us happy when we're young!

Amy said...

Leslie, I don't think you could have selected any that are more descriptive of the seasons. The colors in that fuchsia are awesome.

What an Imagination to think of the four seasons represented in picture form. Very creative.

Carver said...

These are all great images from the different seasons. I love the winter one because the lighting is so spectacular. They are all beautiful but that's my favorite.

Beverley Baird said...

Take care!

Lovely images, Leslie. You're right about the seasons there. Just a little bit of snow, not a lot. Makes me homesick.

Oh, that fuchsia is extraordinary! I love fuchsias and have forgotten how much I miss them until I saw this one. They don't do well here in NM.
Beautiful shot.

(I like the sound of certain words and "indicative" is one of them.) I enjoyed all of your images, but especially the sunset! It hit my funny bone that you included that image of your grandson's truck. Love of him and life. Great choices.

Shrinky said...

They are all gorgeous, but that first shot is absolutely breath-taking!

Liz said...

Gorgeous sunset!
