Theme #139: Sea Side

During the winter of ’05 my brother and I heard reports of hundreds of giant Humboldt squid washing upon the shores of California. We decided to investigate the tidepools of Laguna Beach. We never found the squids.

Weekly Theme Contest

I participate in a Flickr group called Weekly Theme Contest. Each week, there is a theme and the members compete for votes. I’ve never gotten more than one or two votes, but it’s fun to participate anyways. Here are all of my entries along with the theme category listed below.

Parc de la Tête d’Or

Last week Nicole and I went on a date to Parc de la Tête d’Or (Golden Head Park). The lake held a beautiful azure glow that was difficult to catch on film. This park is one of my favorite things about Lyon.

Snowing Near Lyon

This year has been disappointing in the sense that it hasn’t snowed very much in Lyon. It has been a very mild winter with a lot of rain. I don’t think there has been a single day where I have seen snow stick to the ground in the city center. However, there was one week where it snowed in two different suburbs where I work: Mions and La Tour de Savagny.
