Yellow Shopping cart and a Dude up on that Bridge

Walking around Peterborough the other day I came across this poor drowned shopping cart. I don’t know why someone would do that. Shopping carts by nature are not “Bad”. I mean they hold stuff for us in a protected little metal cage while we navigate the many dangers of our favourite stores. They carry the goods out to our cars come rain or shine. I even saw a kid riding inside one the other day with her legs squished sideways due to the big flower-pot that was also there. I wonder what this shopping cart did to deserve such an untimely demise.

Maybe, someday, there will be a way to rescue and resurrect this poor yellow shopping cart.

And what the heck? There is a dude on that bridge.

Purple and Green

Spring sure has sprung around here. When the Purple Iris show up, tucked away behind the foliage at the end of our driveway, I know it has officially arrived. These guys are spectacular. So…well…flowery. I mean, they have a delicate yet powerful quality to them that makes them special.  This image was taken with my Fuji XT-1 and the 56mm f1.2. That lens totally rocks. I love the bokeh it produces and the narrow depth of field is a lot of fun to play with. Just in case you have never heard of “bokeh” before, it means…the visual quality of the out-of-focus area of a photographic image.
