Somewhere in California: Loyola Professional Building. Yes, I know ithe snapshot is grainy, but the late afternoon colours on the particular building epitomizes the Great Age of Retro.

San Francisco: More architectural detail and colour. It was overcast when we tried to do the 51-Mile Drive from a microscopic tourist map. Me with seven layers of bifocals had the glasses off to read the map, on to find, read and relate the street signs; my husband patiently navigating the steep hills and the haphazard layout. The camera was literally in one hand, out the window, and our son probably the only person in the car who actuallys saw anything. But then again, he might have been focussed on that GameBoy toy. Nonetheless, as our weather greys towards winter, it's great to enjoy that beautiful city again.

Learn to skate! While watching one of my older students perform at our local arena, I was delighted to discover some of my "littles" on the ice (who already skate better than I do!). After shouting "Watch ME! Watch ME!", they clamoured for immortilazation - so here you are, warm, buttery, pink and blue.

California: Mojave Desert. This must be the 'tumbleweed' of cowboy music.

California: Mojave Desert. We went through a patch that looked burnt from the freeway. On stopping, it turned out to be a little left-over lava.

Toronto's "Little India" festival: Shop windows are quickly becoming a favourite subject. I hope this one gives an idea of the richness of colour and texture found in almost every other shop.

Toronto's "Little India" festival: Mehdi. Poor guy was being pestered by bees as the honey is mixed with the henna hadn't dried yet. And I thought he was trying to swat me.
