Just figured I should try to keep getting some of my pictures posted, even though they do not necessarily fill a specific timeframe or theme.
Sometimes, photographs are just photos...
So to begin, a giant inflatable duck on the river!
|The hell? Indeed.|
|An adorable little lime green jumping spider. With the advent of spring, the arachnids are in bloom|
|Saw this t-shirt in a shop. I'm not familiar with a town like this in California...must be Charming, Canada.|
|Grooving to the puffy clouds and blue skies.|
|Colourful goofing with the gang at school. I took Ryan's hat and started pretending I was badass.|
|And yet Erin appears to be the tough one.|
|The blur in the bottom right is me. I was perched on the edge of a rollerchair, which shot out from under me at the precise moment the photo was snapped.|
|Ryan and I exchanged chapeaus and yet were absurdly colourful|
This last photo is an entry into a genre with which I am currently obsessed. There is a photo competition in this program, and we may all contribute photos to the pool. I asked Jemma from the International Programs Office what the categories were, and she started mentioning "funny, nature, students in science,..." I then asked, "Is there a category for depressingly lonely urban photographs? I have taken loads of those." The look of deep concern she shot me...she truly is a lovely woman upon whom I should not inflict my flippant bleakness.
Any-ole-who, I have stopped on my occasional late-night walks to attempt to hold the camera still long enough to capture the quiet, lonesome urban and suburban streets. I find them very pleasing. There is a beauty to them, even though there is sometimes a sadness to them. To be honest, they are not indicative of some festering depression in me. Much like the music of the Smiths, there is a gentle melancholy to them that is more uplifting than depressing.
|The darkness of Gordon Road late at night.|
I'll try to post more of them, as well as uplifting daytime images, soon.
