Rainbow Flower

Brotherly Love

A few weeks ago I took a picture of a red hibiscus flower on the short walk from the driveway to our front door. I always do that – take pictures of something that strikes my eye. Usually a brilliant color or subtle design attracts my attention. That day, I had an additional unexpected pleasure: lens flare. Most of the time, lens flare (the bouncing around of light within the camera lens, creating auras on the focal plane) is annoying. This time, it also added an essential element of design to the composition.

Watercolor experiment:

My wife, Joy loves rainbows. I tried to capture the essence of this photo in watercolor.

Sausage, Kale and Bean Soup

The Pink Rose Bakery

Let’s talk about soup. It’s been a while since we talked about soup. Mainly because it hasn’t really been soup weather.

Soup is always comforting at this time of year and also it involves only one pot.

This soup is a winter staple in my family. Not only is it packed with flavour but it also fills your belly. And it’s warming and cozy in a ‘wrapped in a flannel blanket’ way. Who doesn’t want to be wrapped in a flannel blanket?

Maybe comparing soup to a flannel blanket isn’t such a good thing . . .

The Reality Is …

The Book Wars

… I cheated on this month’s theme a little. I mean, I do intend on talking about some of the things that constitute contemporary realistic fiction, but I’ve decided to do so by using a selection of comics and graphic novels. Why graphic novels and comics, you ask? Well, here, let Bryan Lee O’Malley (the creator of Scott Pilgrim) take it away:

Okay, fine, he comes off a little full of himself there, but hey, this was a from a reading and which storyteller doesn’t love the medium they have dedicated themselves to? The point, though, is that I really agree with him.

People have put all kinds of restrictions on what comics can be- whether they are talking about what kinds of genres can be explored in comics, or who the comics are for, or how sophisticated they can be, or even how seriously they can be taken- but…
