PHOTO OF THE WEEK #47 - "Reflections"

Wow!  Time is just passing me by.  There are so many things keeping me busy I can't keep up with myself! 

For the 'May 2-4' long weekend (aka Victoria Day long weekend), we went on our usual camping trip.  Not far from home, but still good to get the trailer out :).  And WOW!  What a fantastic weekend.  Usually you hope for 10 degrees celcius on the long weekend.  I can't believe how hot it was this year.  I'm not even sure the temperature went DOWN to 10 degrees at night!

Of course, camping always means fun photo opportunities for me.  Since getting my Palm Pre last Fall (which has the camera on it), I was able to take a lot of fun pictures of Ben.  If we're friends or family, you would have seen a bunch of them that I sent to my personal Facebook page over the weekend.  Ben knows that if I use my camera phone to take pictures, we can send them right away to Facebook, so now he'll sometimes tell me which camera I should bring on our walks, etc. :)

He helped me pick the Photo of the Week from last week.  He said this was his favourite (even over pictures of him fishing with Daddy) because he liked the reflections.


Thanks for looking, and I hope everyone has a great weekend!! :)

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #46 - "Simple Beauty"

I love our yard. There are so many beautiful things to see and photograph. When we moved here almost 4 years ago, it's what inspired me to push ahead with my photography aspirations.

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #45: "I'm going to check out that pylon"

My husband says I have too many pictures of Ben in my 'Photo of the Week', but he is who I spend most of my time with when at home. ;)

I love the curiosity of his little 6 year old self. Town workers left a hole, covered by a Pylon, at the very edge of our front yard. So he, of course, needed to check it out. Oh how I wish my 300mm Zoom lens was a 500mm Zoom! I wasn't able to sneak in as close as I'd have liked to. Any closer and he realized I was there taking his picture. (Not that I enjoy sneaking up on my kid and taking his picture or anything like that......of course not!) ;)

Thanks for looking! :)

So I went to the kitchen to get a drink, looked out the window to the backyard and saw something so beautiful! I ran to get my camera before it was too late....

Even in the minute it took me to grab the camera, change the lens and slip on hubby's shoes that were at the back door, the scene had changed slightly. I should have grabbed my tripod as well, but it wasn't handy and I was worried that the sun would change too much if I tried to find it.

The photographs unfortunately don't do reality justice, but I still wanted to share.

The sunlight hitting the drops of water on the trees and mist at sunset were quite a sight to see.

Thanks for looking :)
