Rest in Pieces

People in our surrounding area are really getting into Halloween this year. Some of the displays are quite elaborate but also dark, energy-sucking things, which makes me think how we live in a culture of death.

But then again, the same neighborhood really gets into Christmas displays. So maybe it’s just a seasonal thing. It is Halloween, after all!

This display struck my fancy. At least the ghoul is grinning!

This is an Easter lily given to us as a gift. Cropping it posed a special challenge. Usually I like to stick to the original pic’s proportions but in this case there was too much distracting background, so I went freehand. Not sure if I got it right or not… 🙂

Lifelines

I’m trying to walk 30 minutes every evening this Spring. I have a chronic ear sensitivity that necessitates keeping my head covered outdoors at night, until things warm up more. If I don’t it hurts like hell. So the outline of my neck and head is a bit blockish from a hoodie with jacket hood.

Here’s a sunset shot taken last Sunday. Lake Ontario near Cobourg ON. It’s handheld zoomed 48x, and my camera only has 12x optical. So there was some blur. I used Photoshop’s “skake reduction” (a new one for me) filter to fix it up. Pretty impressed with the results.
