#FriFotos: Earth Day

20 Apr

To be honest, I didn’t think I’d have enough material for this week’s Fri Fotos. I don’t work for a recognizable pro-environment company. I’m not one of those gung-ho enivronmental evangelists nor do I need to laud it over people’s heads. But I do what I can with what I’m aware of. (If that makes any grammatical sense whatsoever.)  My dad taught me to turn off the lights and he always used to chastise me about it and saving energy in that simple sense became a habit. Now when I see other people leave the lights on at unnecessary times, I get annoyed and always turn off the light. I recycle. I’m a good citizen. I won the environmental challenge in Grade 8. They even gave me a pretty certificate. Does this count?

But seriously, how in the h-e-to-double-hockey-sticks can I be a better traveler in that sense? Right now I don’t have the time to do a voluntourism type of vacation or take a few months to save the children in Africa. Sorry, not trying to sound sarcastic here but I would love to hear your tips. Here are a few photos I came up with.

#FriFotos: Colourful/Colorful

30 Mar

Kids, it's not photoshopped! I could NOT get over the colour of the gorgeous ocean while taking the ferry from Athens to Mykonos. It's like this all over the Greek Isles and I highly recommend going!

Whoo Hoo! I’m co-hosting Fri Fotos today! It’s always fun to share my photos and see others interpretation of a theme. Plus, I love that this community–going strong for over a year–always gets so excited and creative each week for each theme. This one is no exception. It’s colourful (yes, there were many jokes about the Canadian spelling of this word) and it’s spring so hoping this will inspire some summer getaways or at least different vantage points. Here’s my take: Continue reading

#FriFotos: DOORS …and Door Puns!

28 Oct

Channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw on the fictional character's doorstep in New York City.

Since I’m co-hosting the #FriFotos Doors theme this week, I gave everyone a challenge to come up with door puns and you guys opened up the gates! (Cue symbols).

Here are a few Door Puns overheard on the #FriFotos Twitter feed today:
