FAMILY - taken by my step grand-daughter when they visited Toronto last month. We're gazing down from the 46th floor of our condo looking west. 


GRASS - day camp down at Harbourfront



SILLY - a condo billboard downtown, no, I didn't photoshop the 'stashe.


1/2 (HALF) - my cup is half full, my new birthday mug from my GF.

  2. What a beautiful photo, and the sky is lovely! It's funny -- when I read "bows" I thought of hair bows. So many ways to interpret poetry! What fun!

  3. That silly billboard made me laugh. I also love your take on bow. I didn't stop to think about how many different types of bow there are!

  4. Thank you for listing all the definitions of b-o-w. I didn't think about a hair accessory and was feeling a little left out....or like a plain old idiot! Love your b-o-w! Very pretty picture!

  5. Wonderful set. What a view from way up there. That sign is pretty "silly" looking. So was the little girl in the "grass" shot with her tongue sticking out.
    Awesome photo for Bow - Glad you went with that definition.
