Familia

Familia

This photograph is in honour of our family and specifically for my husband’s birthday today. He has always been the head of the herd just like the bison, being in charge and taking leadership as a privilege whether it has been him serving as Lieutenant Colonel of the Fort Garry Horse Regiment twice or being a Manager in Information Technology or co-leading our family. Here is an article explaining more – https://mikawoz.wordpress.com/2012/04/13/fort-garry-horse-lieutenant-colonel-david-atwell-leader-of-the-pack/ 

I grew up in a very tight knit family and I hope we have instilled the same kind of belief systems and values in our son. I thank my husband, David Elliott Atwell, for being a caring and loving soul. Thank you for being my partner in life this time around.  

Familia is the Spanish form of “Family” and it is the choices you make to love and care for certain people who cross paths in your life. This photograph is a representation of Dave, myself and our son.

Wild West

Wild West

Here is an image of free range buffalo or bison in the Wild West of Canada. They are roaming freely across the grassy foothills of the mountains. It is part of the Bison Paddock Road in Waterton Lakes National Park. I like the way the scenery is composed by nature.

My Two Bears

My Two Bears

These really aren’t my two bears but I think they are adorable and cute even though they are dangerous and wild. I took the photograph near Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada.

According to Wikipedia, “The brown bear (Ursus arctos) is a bear species found across Eurasia and North America. In North America, the populations of brown bears are called grizzly bears. It is one of the largest living terrestrial members of the order Carnivora, rivalled in size only by its closest relative, the polar bear (Ursus maritimus), which is much less variable in size and slightly bigger on average.”

These are two beautiful brown cows in the pasture. I took this photo in the Interlake Area of Manitoba where there is very good land for agriculture around Teulon, Arborg and Riverton.

How Now Brown Cow

How Now Brown Cow

How Now Brown CowI like this little brown calf out in the farmyard. I have made it a black and white image except for the brown cow.

The title is from the following explanation from Wikipedia, “This phrase used to be used in elocution teaching to demonstrate rounded vowel sounds.”

Prayers for Australia

Prayers For Australia

I created this image as I was thinking of the fires raging in Australia. My heart went out to them as people, domestic animals, wildlife and nature was burnt to a crisp. I hoped and prayed for rain to ease their fight and plight.

According to the Smithsonian Online Magazine, “Australia’s massive bushfires, which were contained in mid-February and declared over in early March, left eucalypt forests scorched and the ground, too dry to absorb the following rainfall. But now, the burnt trees are beginning to show signs of recovery as small, leafy branches sprout from their sides.”

Double Big Horn Sheep

I really like the way the two Big Horn Sheep are pretty much camouflaged with the brown background. They are stoic even as they sit eloquently on the ground. This was taken at Bearizona Wildlife Park near Flagstaff Arizona where you drive through the Ponderosa Forest.

Wild Horses

Wild Horses

These are wild horses in the deserts of Arizona near Mesa. They are absolutely beautiful amongst the natural vegetation of the area. I like the way two of them are resting while one is standing tall and proud.

Don’t Talk to Me

Mikawoz Don't Talk to Me

Don’t Talk To Me

Sometimes animals just don’t pose or want to be photographed so it is as if this little guy is saying “Don’t Talk to Me.”

I like the composition and also the continuation of browns and beiges.

Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek

Hide And Seek

Yes, these pink flamingos are playing “hide and seek.” It is nice to see that animals and birds play games just like humans. Ok, I am kidding. It does look like one could be counting with the help of the duck and the others are hiding. Seriously though, they are amazing how they can crank their necks like that. Plus, did you know they process their foods in their mouths upside-down? Interesting! Love their rose colouring against the dark background.
