New Photo Project

Spring must be just around the corner - I believe this because I feel that I'm finally emerging from my photo-funk!

One thing to get me going is my latest photography project:


Starting with A (surprise!).

One photo per letter.

The image may represent anything - an object, an emotion, a concept, a colour, etc.

There's no set time-line but I'm hoping to post at least one photograph per week.

I'm open to suggestions! If you have any brilliant ideas for the upcoming letter, please let me know!

If you'd like to follow along, be sure to "like" my photography Facebook page - don't forget to click on the wheel-thingy, too, and add the page to your interest list so that my posts have more chance of actually being posted to your feed!

If nothing else, this project should keep me out of trouble for the rest of the year!

More New Cats!

Spring (which means multiple litters of kittens!) is just around the corner, and three new adult cats arrived at the shelter this week. It is a never-ending cycle ...

Will the battle against pet overpopulation and human indifference ever be won?!

The rest of the photos may be viewed here.

It was good to get out and use my camera again - haven't don't much with it this winter. Also fun to start working with my new toy, Photoshop CS6!

BC Regional Pond Hockey Championships

Meanwhile, in Canada ...

No, Your Eyes Are Not Deceiving You!

For me, it has been a really long winter. For the first time since we moved to Canada in late 1994, I have felt absolutely NO desire to be out there in the cold - whether its skiing, cross country, snow shoeing, walking - nothing is tempting me out there! Hence the big gaps between blog posts!

Today, though, the sun's out (not a common occurrence during winter, down here in the valley). Its still cold, mind you, with a start close to -10C, but once the valley fog burned off, it almost felt pleasant.

The Trucks Behind Him Are Parked ON The Lake Ice

So after a hearty breakfast, I rugged up and forced myself to go down to Kinsmen Beach in Invermere, where the BC Eastern Regional Pond Hockey Championship, a three-day event between scores of four-person teams, is reaching the pointy end of the tournament. I didn't stay long, or take a great number of photos, but I think something of the Truly Canadian nature of this event shows in the images.

A couple of my fav's are on this page, the rest may be viewed on my website.
