Photography and Walking ~ Mar 18th to 24th

Have been really enjoying walking ... I just wish that the weather was a little more cooperative.  It has been rather cold and wet over the last week or so.  Today, the sun has finally come out and I do hope it stays.

I am only going to post one image that I like the best from the week of walking!!  I haven't been taking my camera everyday partly because of the weather and partly because some of the days I have been taking the same  route.


All the images from my walks are located at the follow link:  Out for a Walk Album

Photography and Walking - March 11 to 17

Well, wasn't overly successfully this week for walking ... got to busy, which I know is very much poor excuse.  So I am hoping this week will be better.

I tried this week to find some color in a very brown landscape of Calgary.  It is hard to find things at this time of year that I find pretty and colorful ... we are just at the end of winter and the first signs of spring, so over the next few weeks, there will be more color.


So, yes color, Right!!?? Many of the playgrounds are still empty but they do have alot of color.


These trees are still pretty even during the winter months.  But I have noticed in the last few days they have dropped the old berries, so there is some life in there!!!

Photo Walk - March 4th to the 10th

Well, so far I have made it out everyday with the exception of one day for a walk. Some are long walks and others are a little shorter, but I have enjoyed them all. I have taken my camera with me very day, and have capture a few interesting images, nothing to fantastic but have enjoyed shooting and reacquainting myself with my camera. March 4: I decided this day I would try and capture shadows, It was a bright sunny day with fresh snow.



March 5, 2012 ~ Today was a snow day, Calgary was to get a rather big snow storm.  So I went out during the calm before the storm.

March 6, 2012 ~ I decided to take a day off partly because of all the snow, which I spent most of my time shoveling!!


March 7, 2012 ~ Found these weeds along the way and just loved the shadows on the fences behind the weeds.  


March 8, 2012 ~ Found this tag along the way and thought it really was neat looking on the rust of the light pole.


March 9, 2012 ~ Downtown at Olympic Plaza.  


March 10, 2012 ~ A quick walk just before sun set and captured the sun and the clouds through the trees.


March 11, 2012 ~ There was some great storm clouds rolling through the Calgary Area on Sunday.  

Well, that was my walking week and I think it was a great success.  Now just to keep it up and I will be happy!!

Walking and Photography

Week of February 26 to March 3:

I have decided to try and go for a walk everyday, partly to build up my muscles before going to Scotland this year as well as to get some very much needed exercise.  I find that over the winter months, I tend not to do to much, hypernate like many other Canadians.

However, I really have a hard time getting off my butt and going ... no modivation to do so.  So I decided that I would take my camera with me and do a little photography to make the walk a little more fun and to get some camera time which has been lacking quite a bit lately.

So I have decided that every Sunday I will post photos from each days' walk.  Now, I only started yesterday so I will only post one photo from last week and next Sunday, I will post a full weeks photos.

I have also created a photo gallery of the images that I have taken which can be found at the following link:  Walk 2012 - Photo Album


I wasn`t the only one out for a walk on Saturday.  The little one just loved to jump in as many puddles as she could find!!

Crock Pot Lasanga

Well, this was my Leap Day adventure and it turned out excellent!! Ok, on the weekend, I came across a recipe for Crockpot Lasanga on a food blog. I thought it was an interesting idea and decided to give it a try, I wasn't to sure about it but I figured if all else fail I could always phone for pizza.
It was very good, and extremely easy to. I did the very basic recipe but I am sure it would nothing to doctor it up with more tomatoes, mushrooms etc. I did use an extra can of diced flavored tomatoes and more cheese!
