So pretty and summery 🙂
Thanks! My timing was right, as I passed over the bridge while the kayakers were on their lunch break. I thought the formation was just waiting to be captured.
It’s 99% in the timing, this taking photos malarkey…
Agreed – and Nancy’s was perfect! 🙂
I got lucky!
It was one of a handful of truly nice days in Toronto this summer. It’s been unseasonably cool and wet.
Gosh…same thing in Italy! TONS of rain! And kind of chilly?!?! Ha, ha, ha…for a Texas gal…there have been days that felt kinda Christmasy
The past 11 days in the 100+ degree Vegas heat were a nice reprieve from Toronto’s early spring-like weather. 🙂
well….even though this summer has felt almost like Texas winter…I have to say I do not miss 100 degree weather much. Ummm….I sweat super easy….and during the summer in Texas, I just walk around constantly wet…..niiiiicccceeee feeling….especially in my work clothes…..visiting clients drenched in sweat….I was a lovely sight! But Italian hubby TOTALLY misses the heat.
The only 100 degree heat I enjoy is dry desert heat. Humidity sucks. And normally Toronto takes on that Florida/Texas humidity vibe in July and August (this summer notwithstanding).
Love the colours.
Thanks very much!
I love it! Crayola Kayaks!
They remind me of crayons, too, Rob!
It’s one of those moments that inspires, or requires you to stop and capture it. It really is a nice photo!
Thanks. I took one wider shot, with a lot more lake and foliage in the background for perspective of how high up I was, but then zoomed in for this one. Decided just to post the one, but in retrospect, it may have been cool to share both.
Makes me want to hop into a kayak and paddle away.
The kayak students, who were on a lunch break, might have taken exception if I borrowed one. 🙂
I was just telling my kids that I do not want summer to end and that I’m feeling that August panic that it’s almost over. I’m just going to stare at this picture all day as a reminder that summer is alive and well!! 🏊⭐️
Denial is a strategy I can absolutely get behind, Maria!
That made me want to go for a lollipop. I don’t know why.
Rob suggested crayons. Both make sense to me!
Hey, here’s an idea: if you’re ever open to having readers submit photos that you then build stories around, I am totally in! I have a handful of weird and wonderful ransoms in my arsenal.
I totally would, but I’ve tried that before, and it never works for me. Visual triggers never get me writing. I get my best ideas in really weird ways, they just come popping along and bam.
Oh to live in your head!
Great shot! Makes me wish that was how I was spending my day!
Me too. Instead I’m at the airport awaiting a flight to Newark. Less than 24 hours after I got home from Vegas. :/)
You just got home! That’s not right!! How long are you in NY?
Just til Fri morning. Executive offsite meeting all day tomorrow. And actually staying in NJ – near the venue – so I don’t even get to buzz around Manhattan tonight, which would have provided plenty of upside (and a Broadway show, in all likelihood). Oh well… perfect excuse to head back next month. 🙂
Silver lining! 🙂
I’m grasping. Sleep deprivation. 🙂
Toronto? Looks tropical?
Toronto – same area I’ve been posting the other 3 wordless wed shots, Carol. Main diff is that I shot this one at midday and the others at dusk / sunset. 🙂
They look like tiny toys! Matchbox kayaks.
And it makes me totally want one. Life size, not one for the bathtub.
My mom has a three person kayak which is no fun because you basically have to take along the two kids you were quite desperate to escape from for an hour. It’s a big, yellow unwieldy thing. We call it the grandma banana.
Grandma’s banana fits two too many!
We keep threatening to buys kayaks but never end up doing it. This photo may be what finally pushes me to pull the trigger and make the purchase. People look so peaceful in them as they glide by me on the lake.
Such pretty colors, Nancy! I wanted to take a similar shot of lakeside canoes yesterday but couldn’t get a high enough angle to capture things just right. Really, I just didn’t want to leave the dock and climb more stairs. 😉 Now I can look at your beautiful photo instead.
