Picture Sundays

Haven’t had the chance to get out and take fresh pictures yet. Let's just say the weather hasn't been in my favor lately. Today I’m coming at you with a selection from the archives. You’ll notice a common theme — work — in this edition.

Canadian volunteers help in rebuilding Liberty Avenue in Orange Walk Town, circa May 2007Canadian volunteers help in rebuilding Liberty Avenue in Orange Walk Town.

This shot (above) was used for a project I was working on a few weeks ago where Canadian volunteers were working with the town council to rebuild a boulevard in town.

The preceeding were taken in the library at Sacred Heart College and at ITVET Orange Walk, respectively. The library shot is my favorite of the set. Yelitza was calm and well poised which always makes for great composition.

My gramps, My gramps, "Maidy", chilling under garage.

This is my gramps. I call him Winnie the Pooh or Old Seed. You can call him Mr. Leiva. The old man was a veteran alcoholic in his days until one day when he mysteriously quit and started a trucking company. Now, he's in his seventies and not doing well. He went under the knife last night which explains why we’ve been wearing sad faces all week long. It’s almost time (sigh).

And some people claim work can't be fun. Most of the people in the pics look like they're having fun.

I hate that time. My grandparents are getting there too. They're starting to forget things, and they've been staying in their homes more often. I'm going to miss them like crazy. I guess the best we can do is visit them whenever possible.

Great pictures!

@T.T.: Sometimes, when I feel happy...and he's sleeping. Hahaha.

Re the dogs: today's perfect to end their miserable lives (my neighbors aren't at home) but it's still undecided.
