Up, Up And Away

by The Fifth Dimension.

Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
We could float among the stars together, you and I
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
The world’s a nicer place in my beautiful balloon
It wears a nicer face in my beautiful balloon
We can sing a song and sail along the silver sky
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
Suspended under a twilight canopy
We’ll search the clouds for a star to guide us
If by some chance you find yourself loving me
We’ll find a cloud to hide us
We’ll keep the moon beside us
Love is waiting there in my beautiful balloon
Way up in the air in my beautiful balloon
If you’ll hold my hand we’ll chase your dream across the sky
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
Balloon…
Up, up, and away…..

WPC: Horizon

Over the Glenmore Reservoir

Camera phones these days are better than the most expensive of the first digitals, and while they may lose something in zoom control and resolution, they can still produce a pretty nice result. 

Like this, for example. I like the convective emotions in these rolling autumn clouds over the horizon at the Glenmore Reservoir, at Calgary, Alberta. 

The camera phone gives you work which is kind of like a cheap paint job on your car. If you don’t look too closely, you can be quite pleased with how it turns out. Or, as a friend of mine likes to say, “nice from afar, but far from nice.” Or, maybe it’s just that my lens is dirty.

Anyway, when you don’t have the ‘good’ camera with you but an opportunity presents itself, you can still haul out the little Plan B, and get that moment under contract.

Have a great day.

Resolution

Too long. Yes, I know – it’s been too long since my last entry. Truth be known, though, it’s not entirely my fault. You see, over the summer months the phone returns to simple telephone use while the DSLR gets pressed into service. In the winter, when the idea of hauling the big hulker around becomes distasteful, the phone gets warmed up again. After all, thirty below is no time for finicky little lens manoeuvres: ‘thirty below is snap-and-go’.

Forgiveness is Divine

Like this little autumn sunset (minus the thirty below). 

I took this last week while I was walking the pooch. While he was, er, taking care of his duties, I took this picture.

So now, in the guise of a resolution of sorts, I promise to get the iPhotography thing out of the doldrums and back into the ethereal reaches of the – well, I promise to get it started again. 

Frankly, the word ‘winter’ scares the bejeebers out of me.
