I spent yesterday taking photos of things which appealed to me, to share with the aday.org project, Picture Today Inspire Tomorrow.
Some photos were very personal - the apartment where I live and the cats; some were of the neighbourhood, and nearby park where I live; and some were of buildings downtown.
In the evening I went down to the waters edge of our small man-made lake (within a block's distance from my home), to take photos of the sunset, and discovered that if I walked further than I had in the past, that it is night home to birds - there were robins in groups, singing in several trees, and blackbirds sitting on reeds. And of course ducks and geese were swimming, and flying in pairs overhead.
It was so calming to me, to hear the sounds of the birds settling in and I will be sure to make this a part of my evening walks from now on. We are fortunate in this city to have a large area given over to natural marsh for birds.
Today, aday.org, posted some very interesting, touching photos that have started being uploaded. The response has been so overwhelming from all over the world, that they are requesting we delay uploading for a few days. (We have until May 22).
If you click on the link below, you will be able to view the first photos.
They are amazing!
Tomorrow I'll share here, a few of the photos I took, and plan to upload as part of the project.
