To the Carnival!

A little while back, I took myself out on a small date to the carnival that had just stopped in town. It had been a number of years since I last went and thought it would be fun to dress up, play a few games and ride the ferris wheel. Going to the fair was my most favourite thing to do as a child. I have special memories of my father coming home from work and telling me that he found a fair we could go to! All the colours, the lights and the adrenaline rush of the rides was so exciting and totally thrilling.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to re-kindle these childhood memories that night, as the fair doesn't quite have its full effect when you go alone. Despite, I still won a prize! A stuffed piggy at the water gun game, which I NEVER ever won at when I was little. So that was nice :) Hopefully the fair will be back soon and I'll win one of the those penguins or dinosaurs, they were so cute!!

It's actually been over a month since I last posted?? Time has been moving a bit too quickly for my taste. We're already May and spring has yet to be quite fully felt despite summer having made a surprise pop-up appearance mid-end March. I can't say I'm entirely looking forward to the heat waves and blaring sun that are to come in the next 2-3 months, but I am ready to leave this cold and uncomfortable weather behind.

And in light of the weather transitioning, the visual landscape has been temporarily graced with pink blossoms. Every year I miss the chance at shooting these lovely flower bushes because of their awkward placing in the middle of a boulevard in between bus stops from where I am to where I'm going near where I live. And so I would often forget and then be reminded as the bus drives pass them and then inevitably forget again until I'm reminded yet again, it's a terrible cycle. This year however I made a point to get off the bus a couple stops early and risked looking silly to drivers going to and fro. It was so worth it, despite the cold wind that froze my trigger-happy fingers!
