For the past two years I’ve participated in Cardinal Guzman’s monthly photo challenge, The Changing Seasons. I’ve enjoyed the exercise each month of reflecting on the photos I’d taken and giving the month a theme … that’s just my thing. I’m always looking for a theme.
Well, I’m back again for another year of Changing Seasons and I hope you’ll enjoy my 2017 monthly journey … or better yet, join the photo challenge too.
So what can I say about January?
In summary, my month has been great. Toronto’s weather has been all over the place from white-outs to balmy spring weather, but my mood is light because my injured shoulder has finally healed and I’ve hit the ground running with enthusiasm.
Outdoors has often been snow-covered and/or icy, but that hasn’t kept me inside for long (click on any photo to enlarge).
The seemingly endless days of grey don’t usually drag me down, but to counter-balance, I’ve been attracted to anything with colour that contrast against the moody skies and dirty snow … like all the great murals I found on the buildings in Midland, Ontario.
With the Christmas season of bright decorations behind us, any structure that shows a splash of colour seems to stand out at this time of year.
On cold and blustery days (and we had a few!), it’s been about hunkering down for some comfort at home. Lots of cuddle time with my furry one and tinkering with new recipes in the kitchen.
As we approach the end of the month, I’m in the process of packing for a few days of warm, sunny weather in Florida and the company of my lovely sister … both a very rare treat for me in the dead of winter. I’m looking forward to this radical change of season – even if it’s only for a few days.
