My 100 & Me [Week 35]

It’s hard to believe that winter was ever here – with the warmest temperatures we’ve had yet this year enveloping us this weekend. The snow has all but melted, the ground is thawing, and the days are certainly getting longer, filled with all the sunlight we’ve missed…and needed.

My 100 & Me [Week 34]

Nothing to see here. Just some thawing grounds, dripping eavestroughs and melting snowbanks. It’s the first day of plus whatever temperatures and it actually feels like we are coming out of winter for warmer months. No one wants to jinx it here but wouldn’t it be nice if we actually saw an early spring?

My 100 & Me [Week 33]

I recently re-read “The Democratic Forest” by William Eggleston, a photo book that is highly regarded for it’s disconnected images that somehow still tell a story. Eggleston is highly renowned for his colour photography work, in a time when the “masters” were still shooting black and white.

My 100 & Me [Week 32]

Days are starting to really blur together. “What day was that again?” That’s certainly a question I keep asking myself, and others around me because it’s really tough to know for certain. We already can’t go anywhere, but with the deep cold weather setting in last month, it’s easy to feel like we are living in a bad…

My 100 & Me [Week 30]

I’m taking a little walk down memory lane, when life was a little simpler, when work was able to be accomplished outside of my house without the fear of catching, getting sick or spreading a deadly virus. These images were taken in early 2020 when I was still able to travel for my work.

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…

My 100 & Me [Week 04]

Keeping up with a weekly photography challenge is HARD! When you work in front of a computer for most of the day, you’d think it would be easy to get out for a bit a couple of times a week. Right now, that has been the most difficult part of this challenge, the getting out part. There are just so many things going on…

My 100 & Me [Week 02]

Continuing my weekly project “My 100 & Me,” this week was just some more exploration indoors. It’s amazing when you start to look for interesting light and shadows, how they will pop up for you. My goal is to hopefully take a bit more time when I am out and about to shoot some interesting scenes…
