How to survive Disneyland during Christmas with park pictures galore

read

Nearly every day, my boy still brings up Disneyland. If it’s not about Disneyland, it’s about Disneyworld, which he has never yet visited.  And in my eyes, that means our Disneyland over Christmas trip was a massive success! Funny how all you think about is how tired you are when there, but once home looking at your pictures, you wish the […]

Shutter priority where cats are concerned

read

Every so often, my furry friends stay still long enough to capture on film. But that isn’t generally the case. They still love to happily dart from one side of the house to the other. So I was practising with shutter priority on the camera on this day. I’ll admit I’m not very good at […]

Shutters – a cheater photography background

read

Did you notice I used some old shutters in this toolbox post? If you remember, I picked up the motherload of shutters from my neighbours. I put some shutters to work in my workshop by hiding some drywall holes. (great excuse for a cool wall treatment I say) As for the rest… They make a most excellent […]

CN Tower, Wicked, Graffiti Alley in Toronto. Wow.

read

I’ve always wanted to visit New York. So when I most recently spent some time in Toronto, it was incredibly tempting to hop on a plane after Blogpodium and fly on over there. Know what? New York IS on my bucket list, bar none. But Toronto offered me all the NYC perks without the added […]

Walking and talking up and down the hill

read

The weather has been cooperating in our area lately, and that means one thing. It’s time to go walking. I’ve played with the idea of joining a gym. But so far, I haven’t pulled the trigger yet. So for the time being, I’m just going to throw on my runners and head for the nearest […]

Why I love my Nikon D800… and other camera gear

read

Under the gun with a bathroom renovation deadline, I was staying up late and pulling out all the stops to gitter done, leaving ONE day to shoot, edit and build my reveal post. One day.  Come 2pm, that was it. I hammered shut the last paint can lid, grabbed the tripod and camera before the […]

Fall walking up Majuba hill. Stress free.

read

It’s full throttle fall in the west coast of BC. The grapevines against my shed out back were spectacular as was the recent fall retreat I took photos of.  Fall is just flat out amazing!  I just wish I could say I felt the same. Every now and then, I fall into a rut of […]

 Part 8 – Let’s Meetup at Lucketts! is HERE. Let’s say there was this cool old house that you could decorate any way you wish, using all the things you love. Wouldn’t that be like a dream come true? That’s exactly what visiting Lucketts’ Design House is like.  For those not in the know, I […]

Unplugging and retreating

read

This past weekend, I had an opportunity for unplugging and retreating with about 25 wonderful gals from my church. I really didn’t know what to expect. This was pretty much out of my element and comfort zone. But I quickly found out the 24 others felt pretty much the same way, which made for a […]
