Realms of Blue

That one time I took pictures in Heaton Park on Boxing Day and they came out blue.

Yes, it’s the same day as the photo in this post.

It was something new for me, as I don’t go to Heaton Park in winter and I definitely don’t go anywhere during Christmas time. I was glorious!

Do you ever get pleasure from experiencing something so tiny or so trivial for the first time?

Animals

More Ducks!

Because you can’t ever have too many duck pictures on your blog.

These images show a mother duck with her four ducklings, following her into the water. This is the same Heaton Park pond that featured in my previous duck post.

I can’t believe how lucky I was, having had an opportunity to take these photos. And it just proves that no matter how many times I go to Heaton Park, there is always something new to discover!

Miscellaneous

Don’t Feed The Horses

The sign is in Heaton Park.

don't feed the horses1

Do not feed the horses. They are on a special diet.

Please note, I’m not making fun of this sign–I completely understand the horses should not be fed by the park’s visitors. In fact, it annoys me when I see people feeding animals in places where there are big bold signs instructing NOT to feed the animals. Like, you think that doesn’t apply to you? Ugh…

So, the sign. It just made me smile, that’s all. I’ve noticed I’ve gathered a few pictures of different signs, it seems they are one of the things I like to photograph, both with my camera and the smartphone. The blog is helping me discover myself and I love it! Here’s the tag.

How about you? Is there an object you like to take pictures of that is not the obvious landscape/nature/portrait thing? Tell me in the comments and share your work!
