Day 310

Emily - These are actually the green feathers on my lamp in my room. With a little black and white effect and some boosting of the colour it looks kind of aery. Really like this one.

Jeanine - "Freedom"

I have at least a couple of friends who like quotes.  A couple of them have blogs - you know who you are.  I even have a friend who free hand painted a favourite quote on her wall.  This Stephen R. Covey quote is for them (and all of the rest of you that have a thing for quotes like I do)...

"While we are free to choose our actions, we are not free to choose the consequences of our actions."

 I thought this quote worked so well with this shot of the Walkerton Jail that will be closed soon.  I was in court there today with a client who faces a period of custody.  The jail is next door to the courthouse.  I was struck by the contrast between the yellow ribbon welcoming home those who risk death to fight for our freedoms and the yellow stone walls and silver barbed wire holding back those who chose to gamble theirs away.
