Steele Road

Image
May 26, 2018. Despite threats of rain I went out biking and was rewarded with a beautiful ride. This is taken off Steele Road, on the way back from Avonmore. Listened to Lights 'Skin and Earth' a few times while cycling. Got back, bought dirt and ports for the tomatoes and geraniums, and cut some lilacs to make the house smell nice. Played a few hours of Cities:Skylines after fixing a persistent GPU driver problem that was crashing all Steam games. https://flic.kr/p/HVAxZz

Double Decker

May 22, 2018. Ordinary day in the office, no meetings, just some proposal reviewing and paper revisioning. I took the car to the dealership for servicing after work, and took this photo of St. Laurant Bvld. The flag is the Franco-Ontario flag. The bus is a double decker. And the building is a pretty good restaurant. https://flic.kr/p/24GkDEd

Trillium

May 13, 2018. Busy day. Went out for a bike ride to Chrysler (37.6 km) where I found a cluster of trilliums, including this one. Then in the afternoon-evening it was into the city to prepare to be a judge for the Canada Wide Science Fir at Carleton. https://flic.kr/p/24qQQ6S

Pont Abbé Deguire Bridge

Another bike ride today and this time I made it it St. Albert and back - 25 km. This is a look up an unnamed creek that crosses Guerin road. This is a little off the road looking up the creek. https://flic.kr/p/HeGR5e

Ready to Roll

April 29, 2018. I heard the weather here was nice while I was gone, but to me April is still cold and grey. This is the neighbour's back deck - they have kids who are clearly ready for summer. So am I. tired of waiting. https://flic.kr/p/JxkZ3f

My Luggage

Image
April 28, 2018. Flying home from Colombia. This is the transfer to Ottawa, and I had the unusual experience of being able to see my own luggage being loaded onto the plane (and enough time so I could set up to take the photo exactly when it is being placed on the conveyor belt. Arrived home late morning after the red-eye and slept the rest of the day. https://flic.kr/p/H1XayD
