Snow urchin…. Well it looks like a snow-covered sea urchin I think. Actually it is a snow-covered prickly pair, Opuntia hybrid ‘Nikolaj’ in my winter hardy cactus garden.

Does this speak to the obesity issue in North America or to 21st century family stability issues? On the other hand, how about the spelling – US spelling of ‘center’ but sign is for a Canadian Community Centre.

Graffiti leads the eye to the hole in the wall. The brick layer and tar paper has been ripped out of the corner of this brightly painted house.

Seedhead pinwheel. A couple of simple photoshop manipulations and poor photo of a seed head becomes a colourful pinwheel. I applied the distort / twirl tool and then increased the saturation significantly.

Ottawa River in the late fall. Champlain Bridge is in the distance. It is December 1 and feeling quite cool so this could be considered winter except that we have no snow yet

The Ottawa River races under the Champlain Bridge. No snow on the ground yet. It is late this year. But it sure feels like winter.

It was still pretty early and overcast and thus quite dark out plus I added my polarizer to darken the scene even more and reduce light by about two more f stops (I don’t own a ND filter). The shutter was open 2 seconds at f22.
