Black and White

My 100 & Me [Week 07]

Spring has sprung! I repeat: SPRING HAS SPRUNG! It feels like we have been waiting FOREVER to see fresh flowers blooming, new buds on the trees and WARMER weather! For those in the area, you know when you have to turn the furnace on or start a fire in June, it’s been an abnormally cold Spring.

My 100 & Me [Week 05]

This week was all about black and white images…from just one session. Seriously, anyone who has tried to do a photo “challenge” consistently will know that it’s really tough to stay consistent. Building something like this into your routine takes time, and effort, and the knowledge to be…

Foley Mountain Before the Storm

Standing on Foley Mountain watching a storm approach Westport was a sight to be seen. The heavy rain clouds I saw approach Bedford Mills earlier in the afternoon led me to believe there was a system of storms coming towards the area.

Teen Angst

How is it possible that my nine year old son has the expressions and angst that can only truly be seen through the teen years? Was I this “angst-y” when I was that age? My parents probably thought so but if you ask them now, they’d say I was the perfect kid. I don’t know if I believe that! I’ll…

Antique & Classic Boat Show

It’s no secret that I love to be out on the water. If it was another lifetime, I’d probably live on a houseboat in a warmer climate somewhere. I’ve always felt there was something so calming and restful about being on a boat. Plus, who doesn’t love to drive them? So when the Manotick Classic…

Chaffey’s Lock Craft Market

One of the first local events that we were able to enjoy this past summer was the Chaffey’s Lock and area Heritage Society Craft Market. It was held on the front lawns of the beautiful Opinicon Dining & Resort. This was our first time attending both the craft market and seeing the Opinicon. What a treat…
