“Sometimes I feel like a fire hydrant looking at a pack of dogs” ~ Bill Clinton

Well that about sums up 2011 for me so far. Not to be a big ‘ol crybaby, especially with the state of our world today, but in my tiny corner, 2011 has so far brought me a new job (which I really enjoy), many late nights at said new job, through the roof stress levels, and a multitude of ailments (hhmm, could there be a link?)

Not sure what that should all equate to, but throw in the timely demise of my computer and the personal loss of someone dear to me, and the result has been a crippling inabilty to pick up a camera. Throw in an extra dash of rising stress over watching all my photography gear gather dust, and we (well me) are now faced with wanting to just walk away from anything photo related, including Flickr…..Yes, gasp(!), you heard me…..no more Flickr!!!

That being said, I refuse to give in to any kind of depression and with the arrival of Spring, it’s time to get myself out of bed, fire up my brand new swank computer, take some more vitamins (and maybe a few shots of Red Bull), and get out there and start shooting again.

To give myself a good kick in the butt, I’ve decided to post some shots from last year that I never got around to uploading, starting with this one. Am I the only one who has never seen a PINK fire hydrant? For my fellow Montrealers out there, this one was in LaSalle. Why pink? I couldn’t find anything on Google….but if any of you out there know, I would be thrilled if you would share!

Feeling good to be back….kind of!
