What Goes Up, Must Come Down...

I have decided to discontinue this blog. Taking pictures of Regina really gave me a new insight into my city and I loved the experience.

Thank you for everyone who stopped by and left comments. It was great to hear from you all and made me quite happy.

If you get a chance, take a look at the following Regina photo blog. It displays some great pictures and the photographer has a great eye. Enjoy!

One Big Happy Goose Family

Walking through the park you get to see all the baby geese. Some are still quite small and new; others are getting quite big and used to people. Any size, they are really cute - all yellow and fluffy.

Sorry for the lack of posting lately, I have lost my mojo. I am hoping to get my motivation back full time. Cheers!
