First the collage:
I walked outside and said, "I need a butterfly!" and what fluttered by and landed on the mock orange but this tattered one. It looked a little worse for wear, bless, and I can't determine what kind it is. Does anyone know?
I took numerous photos of bicycles, however this is the one I chose because I thought the balloon was a cheerful touch:
I also took a few photos of red doors, and chose this one because it was labelled as such ;)
I chose the cat under the blossom tree as my cartoon character. He has a glazed eye look about him, but who wouldn't after experiencing this crazy spring weather!
For the emergency vehicle, I had a photo of an ambulance and this Sheriff van. It's not often I see a sheriff van so it moved into the spot.
I had numerous choices for vintage as well, and decided on this old truck parked beside a dilapidated barn taken on a drive through some back country roads.
I had a patch of forget-me-nots picked out for the 'something blue' category, but have changed it to a Vancouver Canucks flag. The Vancouver Canucks hockey team is in the Stanley Cup playoffs, with the first game against the Boston Bruins tonight. Needless to say, Canuck fever fills the air, with many vehicles festooned with flags, and people of all ages wearing Canuck jerseys! Go Canucks!
I had photos of street lamps during the day, some shining at night, and then spotted a utility worker up on a ladder, and thought he added some interest to the street light shot.
The photo I chose for the 'texture' category was the embedded cutlery and dishes in a wall of a straw bale farmhouse on the house and garden tour one of my sons and I enjoyed on Mother's Day.
Tracey Horovaten and Shayne Barker’s gorgeous farmhouse is truly unique; hand-built by a master woodworker; the imaginative creator of multi-dimensional, fanciful collages/murals.
The Aquarius Place street sign is the only choice I found for the Zodiac category, and that was spotted by my son!
The building I chose was a water tower, which could be, if one used imagination, a castle tower ;)
Last, but definitely not
