Le Semnoz, France, taken on March 21, 2013
In March 2013, during a training school session, my colleagues and I went on an excursion to Le Semnoz, where we went snowshoeing in team. At one point I was taking a group photo for one of the teams, and everything was fine until…someone tripped. Or someone pushed someone else?! Whatever it was, surely chaos ensued and the initial fall of one person triggered an entire chain reaction that resulted in half the team falling onto the ground into deep snow. As a bystander I found it rather hilarious to watch everyone try (or not!) to get back on their feet while still not sure what had happened. It might as well have been a huge snow fight that I’d love to have joined!

[Reposted because of image error in previous post.] Street performers often are able to transform themselves into art itself and their creativity is endless. In Madrid, Spain, I saw two men who seemed to be able to transmogrify themselves into life-size figurines made of clay. Could have fooled me! (Side note: I had always thought the word “transmogrification” was used only in Harry Potter, but apparently…not. Thanks, WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge 😉 )

Summer is short and precious in Scotland, but I feel like this summer had been way nicer and warmer than last year’s. At least the sun didn’t hesitate to shine, and surprisingly we got quite a few rainless days!

Tim Hortons is as representative of the Canadian culture and spirit as is hockey. Every neighbourhood has its own local Tim Hortons stores and growing up in Toronto, we were never too far from one of them – very convenient when you’re doing your morning coffee run or if you’re craving a midnight donut!

Nature exhibits H2O in various wonderful and artistic forms that inspire and touch me. Among them are waterfalls, clouds, icicles, and dewdrops! Morning dew, especially, can sometimes be a delicate work of art – the beauty is unfathomable!
