For Life - Did you know that morning doves mate for life, and return to the same spot year after year to nest? I caught an intimate moment between these two. Old married couple or young love? Both.

Crime Scene - The mess under Josh's bed looks like a crime scene. A Lego riot, with some minifigs horrifically dismantled.
Symmetry - Last week's Picture Inspiration prompt was about balance and symmetry. Capturing balance in a photograph was tough for me. I don't see the world this way. My eye tends to be drawn to asymmetrical compositions. I did eventually get this picture of The Kids running shoes, but I don't know if it screams balance or symmetry. Maybe I will identify better with next weeks prompt.
Tilt - A busy day getting ready for a weekend camping trip left me frazzled and my nerves frayed. I only shot one picture - this one of the fence. I was uninspired by it so I played around with the editing. Tilting the fence added interest. After, I googled tilt - from wikipedia :
Tilt is a poker term for a state of mental or emotional confusion or frustration in which a player adopts a less than optimal strategy, usually resulting in the player becoming over-aggressive.
Yup, that was about how my day was going.
Learning to Fly - This cute little guy was tossed from the nest, landing right beside our campsite. Mama bird watched as he hopped around a little and then made his first tentative flight to a low branch. Way to go buddy.
Back to Reality - We arrived home from camping to find our front window broken. Good thing that my trip left me relaxed, refueled and able to breathe through life's little hiccups.
Uncertain - The Graduate statue stands outside the high school where two of my kids will be going in the fall. I went there to meet with staff about my son's resource support. I have my fingers crossed for a successful September, knowing that, even with all the preparations and plans put in place, it remains uncertain.
TaDa! - Nothing feels better than a project completed. I finished my shower gift with days to spare. The hard part will be giving it away.
A Day Without Colour - A collage of images from my morning photo walk, all captured in black and white.
