Not Talking to You

Not Talking to You

This is a photograph I took of a tiger who was most certainly ignoring me and saying “Not Talking to You.” He is still glorious even if he is not paying attention to me. I like the white marks on the back of his ears. I have added filters for special effect.

Blue Hue Mountains

These are beautifully and individually sculpted mountains. Each mountain is different from the next. There are various hues of blue ranging from the mountains to the sky. I hope you like it too. 

This photograph was taken in the Banff-Jasper National Parks in Alberta, Canada.

Moses

This is a photograph I took of a statue of Moses in the winter time at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It was made by Leo Mol. I like the way the snow has highlighted the figure. 

Leonid Molodozhanyn or Leo Mol, as he was known, was a Ukrainian-Canadian sculptor, stained-glass artist and painter. 

According to the Assiniboine Park website, “Mol created his sculptures using the Lost Wax method. In this process, clay is modeled on a rebar and wood structure then covered in liquid rubber to form a mold. Plaster is layered over the mold, creating a cast. The cast and mold are separated from the model and melted beeswax is pressed into the rubber mold. A cement mixture is then poured inside the wax layer. After the cement hardens the molds are removed, leaving a wax model with a solid cement core.”

Green Cactus

Green Cactus – Photograph by Mary Mikawoz

Green Cactus

This is a photograph I took in the Arizona dessert around Mesa. These cacti are found pretty much everywhere as the land is very dry. 

According to Wikipedia, “Cactus stems are often ribbed or fluted, which allows them to expand and contract easily for quick water absorption after rain, followed by long drought periods. Like other succulent plants, most cacti employ a special mechanism called “crassulacean acid metabolism” (CAM) as part of photosynthesis.”

Wilderness

Wilderness

This is a photograph I took in and around the National Parks in Banff and Jasper, Alberta. It takes in the breadth and beauty of the wilderness. The lake is pristine clear blue and the mountains are limited in the amount of snow they have on them. There is a reflection of the mountains in the water below. Finally, ]bushes up front frame the picture well and bring you into the image as if you were there.

Pink Parrot

Pink Parrot

This is a photograph of a pink parrot that I took at the Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia. I like the way she looks. I hope you do too.

I added some purple to the backdrop for special effects and a sense of cohesion with the hue levels.

Crooked

Crooked

I took this photograph because I find interest in this crooked window as it reminds me of that old English rhyme. 

“There was a crooked man, and he went a crooked mile, 
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile; 
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse, 
And they all liv’d together in a little crooked house.”

Royal Newfoundland Regiment

Mikawoz Royal Newfoundland Regiment

Royal Newfoundland Regiment

On this day, Dominion Day or Canada Day, July 1, 1916, the Royal Newfoundland Regiment faced the German army at Beaumont-Hamel on the first day of the Battle of Somme, inflicting 90 percent casualties.

According to Wikipedia, there were a number of memorials erected by the Newfoundland government after the war. “ Four were erected in France at Beaumont-Hamel, Gueudecourt, Masnières, and Monchy-le-Preux and the fifth is Courtri/Kortrijk in Belgium.” A sixth monument stands in Bowring Park in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

The memorials are all centrally identical featuring the emblem of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment being the caribou standing atop of Newfoundland granite appearing to roar in the direction of the enemy. This photograph was taken at Beaumont-Hamel in France. We walked around the paths.

Bee Flower

Mikawoz Bee Flower

Bee Flower

I look this image of the bee in the flowers in Freeport, Bahamas. What I like about this photograph that I took is the fact that the flower is in various stages of development just like people from baby to youngling to adult. I find the spiky nature particularly appearing which I guess would be like the teenage years.

Water Lilies in Colour

Water Lilies in Colour

I took the photograph of the water lilies in Freeport, Bahamas. I then decided to give it some colour and give it some darker features using filters and effects. The result is like a painting which I hope you like as much as I do.
