Queen Anne's Lace
Queen Anne’s Lace, growing along all of the walking trails in St. John’s these days. (Newfoundland) The fuzziness around the perimeter of this shot is achieved by using other flowers up close to the lens as a natural softening filter. The beauty of this technique is that the filter always matches the surroundings!

Tuesdays are marvelous days. They don’t have the shock value of Mondays, nor do they have the pressure to get everything done that comes with a Friday. I rather enjoy Tuesdays and expected that this would be a fairly workaday and mundane sort of day.

Apparently not.

Two things happened. Well, more than two things, really.

1. I had a lovely run along trails without a watch or any sort of a schedule. It was lovely to run and just pay attention to how I was feeling, which turned out to be surprisingly good. Since my recent battle with bronchitis, exertion has made me feel like an asthmatic in a dust storm. Today, I felt absolutely normal and that’s a real delight.

2. I saw several duck families while running. And one very unconcerned and active rat. (I like rats, when they’re not bothering anyone)

3. As I was leaving the gym and making my way downtown, I happened upon an older woman who did a face plant into the pavement. Helped her home and made a new friend in the bargain.

Finally, but most deliciously……

4. A brown box arrived in the mail today from Kelowna. It was very light-weight. It didn’t rattle.

Intrigued? I sure was!! More on this in the next entry!
