People sure make different choices when it comes to vacations. Budget, family circumstances and personal interests shape holiday plans. Our family vacations tend to one extreme or the other - we go big or stay home! This spring vacation, we opted to unwind with a nine-day nature break in Canmore, featuring daily photo walks. Our vacation pics reflect the tussle between winter and spring that takes place at this time of year in this part of the world.
As far back as I can remember, I've loved numbers. The number four, in particular, has a lot of character: - Four is the only cardinal numeral in the English language that has the same number of letters as its number value. - The fourth finger (ring finger) of a human hand automatically bends when the little finger bends (trying is believing). - In Tetris, a game named for the Greek word for four, every shape in the game is formed of four square blocks. Herein are five photographic interpretations of four.
This month I saw a tiny vole under a wild rose bush and a couple of coyotes in the distance, but the wildlife I managed to photograph included a red squirrel and some Mallard ducks.
