My Flowers

June 25, 2013

My flowers were beautiful this year, never last long enough for me but that is just the way it is.

This is evening light, back lite which I love because you get see so much more detail and just make things pop!!

Looking forward to printing these to see how they look and will be making cards out of these for the fall and Christmas markets.

A Visitor

June 21, 2013

When the rain finally stopped and the sun broke through, I was outside as fast as possible!!  And I heard a noise, well a birdie noise anyway!!

Look who showed up!!  Every once in a while there is the odd Northern Flicker that flies through.  I have only ever seen him in the winter time checking out this bird feeders.

I didn't get the greatest of shots but wanted to share anyway!!

What are you Looking At!!!

Go Away!!  

Hehehe :)

City Gardens

June 18, 2013

Was downtown rather early this day in hopes of missing the rain fall that was coming.  Well, only half successful and half soaked!!

But sometimes, the wet weather really brings out the colors of flowers and I think today was one of them.  However, the rain is not a great thing for a camera and I would suggest that you have some kind of cover up for your camera, which I don't have.  If I find something I will share it with all of you!!

All taken in and around Olympic Plaza!!

Before the Flood!!

June 11, 2013

I had a chance to go down to Pearce Estate Park about 10 days before the flood here in Calgary.  This park has not been opened yet, hoping maybe will be able to head down there in the fall.

It was a beautiful day and walk all the way from Park to about 10th street, I think!! :) And it was a perfect day!!

Ducks were quite happy and very busy!!

There were some great reflections that day as well.

The robins were quite busy as well.  I watched this little guy pop all around looking for buys and digging for worms.  He was quite entertaining!!

Love Love Love These Things!!   They are just weird and I like them!!!

Out for a Stroll Down Stephen Ave

June 5, 2013

One of my favourite spots to shoot is along Stephen Ave, there is so many things to see and shoot.  Especially during the spring, summer and fall seasons because there is so much activity and things going.

Shopping is great but shooting the merchandise!!!

The store displays are interesting also!!

The city always does a wonderful job with there gardens and flowers around the city.  I just love tulips even though they were rather late this year it was still great to see them.

The color of these tulips just blow my mind!!!

Out to do an Errand and Took my Camera!!

June 1, 2013

Had to do some errands this day and decided that I really needed to take my camera with me.  I was helping to get rid of garbage, yeah I know so exciting!!  However, the spot that we went had some great stuff to shoot and have wanted to do some shooting in this yard for ages.  And I just so can't wait to go back again with more time, never have enough time when there are so many things to look at and explore.

To gain access to this back yard, you had to go through a shop.  It was very dark but was able to get a couple of good shots off.  ISO was high however, gave me a chance to see how high I can push it with out loosing quantity.

Later on that day, we took my aunt out for supper and in here yard in Mckenzie Town I found this little guy hanging out!!
