I take pictures randomly to post on the blog and Instagram and look at scenes with an eye for a possible photo op...
When I look around I see so many things worthy of recording, so many things of beauty.
I am aware that when I am behind the camera lens that I might not be totally "present" in any given situation.
So I am careful not to let this habit prevent me from fully engaging in the "moment."
Having said that...
I have many images on my camera roll.
An early morning visitor.
If you look closely you can see two grey haired gals in this photo and we are both wearing glasses!

Mosaic tiled pool at The Vancouver Art Gallery...such a lovely shade of cobalt blue.
We did a lot of walking on our recent visit to Vancouver.
One of the most picturesque walks was False Creek to The Olympic Village and around the Science Centre and over The Granville Street Bridge and back to False Creek.

you can see the reflection of the ocean and skyline if you look closely.
Gigantic Jelly Beans perhaps?
Bird sculptures at The Olympic Village
This young child was having a wonderful time sliding down the bird's' tail feathers.
The utilitarian manhole covers were intricately detailed...
they are really quite beautiful.
All this walking gave us an appetite.
We lined up early for the first seating of dinner at the iconic Vij's.
Vikram Vij's Indian Fusion restaurant is located in the South Granville neighbourhood.
It is very popular and is always packed with eager diners.
The food is amazing!
It was a lovely evening and you can see the line up along the sidewalk.
Rangoli is next to Vij's and serves up the same delicious Indian fusion cuisine and they offer take away if you don't want to stand in line.
I did not take any pictures of the food as it was too dark.
The flowers in the ladies washroom were artfully arranged.
The next morning we met our friends for a tasty brunch at Abigail's Party in Kits.
We arrived early and put our name on the list for a table.
This spot is popular and there was a line up...
I opted for the Californian...
Dungeness crab cakes topped with avocado with poached eggs on top.
They were yummy...
we had a great holiday in Vancouver and although there was a lot of walking there was even more eating!
I hopped on the scale this morning and this is how I felt!
It's time to start counting my points again!
I went on a 10K walk this morning and ate a salad for dinner.
Another instalment in The Ugly Truth series is in the works...
Hope your week is off to a great start...
Be Well and Be Kind.
