I spy… something red.

I had so much fun during my last I Spy photo excursion that I did it again. This time, instead of fixating on circles, I had eyes only for the colour red.

I spent about an hour and a half downtown today, and almost no one looked at me strangely for snapping photos of fire hydrants and discarded take-out containers.

As before, giving myself a theme (and a time limit) to capture a series of photos allowed me to practice observation and composition but also encouraged me to avoid overthinking. Sometimes I just need to get out of my own way.

Bonus… this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is Collage. Perfect! Here it is:

Tiny things.


Ah, glitter. The gift that keeps on giving.

If you dare to open a container of glitter (or, heaven forbid, the container gets knocked over by your sweet but careless children), no amount of sweeping, wiping, vacuuming, or hyperventilating will make it disappear. It will show up later, glimmering cheerfully, in household and human cracks you didn’t even know existed.

Oh, but it sparkles.
