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 27]…again

As I lie here bedridden for the last couple of days with a very painful back problem, I find my mind wandering. You see, TV really just doesn’t cut it for me. I don’t have the personality that can just sit down in front of a TV screen for hours on end and keep my mind on topic. I’d rather be doing something….

I love the way it looks like a painting. I also love that I’m able to do this with my camera because I…

Lilac & Tett House ICM

Today was the perfect day to get creative! Spending some time outside this morning creating photographs that incorporate the Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) and Double Exposure techniques really got my creative juices flowing! I absolutely love the contrast of the purple lilacs against the white…

Dash on the Daybed

Dash is our tuxedo cat who looks to me like batman (I’m Batman!). He’s got this great face where the black in his fur comes down only part way on his face and it looks like he’s wearing a mask. That coupled with his brilliantly-coloured yellow eyes makes for a real looker. He has this spot…
