This week I have two pictures for the theme! Neither of them were taken specifically for the challenge, but they both embody the theme of windows. Both looking out into the snowy world outside (one with a pretty girl looking back in though).
Ginger looking back in the window shortly after being let outside. She’s not cut out for our snowy weather. Like me, she’s more of a summer girl.
This one was taken just before New Years on a trip some friends and I took to Tremblant. We stayed in lodge near the north side of the hill and not in the actual village. It was so beautiful there and very quiet. I also managed to fake my French enough that I almost sounded like a native. Almost.
A new day begins above the clouds as I travelled from DC to Ottawa, one very early winter morning.
I hope wherever you are isn’t as cold as here!
I for one, will be hiding under a blanket on the couch watching Christmas movies and drinking tea (going to try out new ones I got this morning!).
One little boy playing behind the counter of his parents’ pizza place in South Korea. I took this one hot evening in the summer, looking to put off making food by getting some take out. I loved going by this place, since the owners’ two kids would generally be out and around playing. The little girl was a few years older than him, and was kind of a bully to him. Since she was in school, she normally ran around the neighbourhood with her friends causing mayhem.
After spending two days hibernating from the cold, I finally left my house the other day to go for some brunch and coffee with a friend who is visiting from out of town in the market. We’re pretty predictable people and went to everyone’s favorite diner in the market and settled in for some delicious greasy breakfast foods at the reasonable hour of noon. Keep in mind, this was on a Wednesday, where most people do real people stuff. After we stuffed our faces with a very late breakfast, my friend had to leave as he had other commitments to get to, leaving me alone to wander about around downtown.
I walked around the mall for a bit, but I wasn’t interested in the Christmas lineups, and half the mall seems to be under construction anyways, so I left in search of snowier options. It was a beautiful day, it snowed off and and throughout the day, and it was the first day that it wasn’t terribly freezing.
The Ottawa River
Museum of History (formerly Civilization)
Coat of Arms Unicorn
I never noticed this guy before, he must be there to represent the classiness of Ottawa. Alright, checked the internet, apparently he comes from the UK Coat of Arms and represents Scotland.
Christmas lights on Parliament Hill
This one’s probably my favorite photo. I must have looked a little odd when I was trying to take it, since I was standing in a foot or so of snow in the fieldy part of the Hill. It’s been pretty snowy since then, with another ‘snow shower’ happening now, and I think another snow storm later this weekend.
