Here is my entry for this week’s Word Press Photo Challenge: Near and Far. I decided to look at this challenge from the perspective of ‘near’, and the picture of me in an outdoor pool in Toronto, Ontario in January a few years ago was taken very near to me. The pool is actually half inside a hotel and half outside, and guests can alternate back and forth between the two spaces. It was amazing to be outside in the heated pool in the middle of winter and have snowflakes falling around me as I swam. Inside and outside–near and far–very fitting for this photo challenge, I think.
