365 ~ Day 82 ~ Halloween is Coming!!



Went out to do a little shooting today and ended up in front of Twigs!!  Love this Store and their display that they have out.  They have some really neat stuff!!


September 30th ~ Something Transparent

Ahhh … something Transparent … Water!!  Oh somethings coming up with something is so very hard. But it is a great way to challenge yourself and look at the world around you.  The more you look the more you can open your mind and come up with something different ideas.

365 ~ Day 80 ~ Water Grasses

I wasn’t able to get out and do any shooting the last couple of days.  Readjusting to working life after being off for some time.  Decided that I would share an image from my trip to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan last August.


September 28th ~ Something Pink

Snap Dragons!!  Love Snap Dragons!!  They are just little character looking to be loved!

Went out to the Saskatoon Berry Farm, just outside of Calgary.  Cool place, didnt haven’t a lot of time to explore but did find a few things along the way!!


September 27th ~ Close up

Close up of a Rush color moss on a rock.  Thought it looked really rather cool!! How different the world is when you give it a good look!!

September 26 ~ Texture

Textures can be fun but it is hard to find a good definition of what a texture is.  

The characteristic physical structure given to a material, an object,etc., by the size, shape, arrangement, and proportions of its parts:  soil of a sandy texture; a cake with a heavy texture.


365 ~ Day 78 ~ Awesome Colors!!

Wow!!  Really fallen in love with the fall colors this year!!

365 ~ Day 77 ~ The Moon!

Its Almost Full!!  Will be doing a few shots over the moon over the weekend.  Suppose to be full moon Sunday night!  And it is suppose to be big!!!  


September 25th ~ From a Distance

Zoo Bridge is very much in the distance.  It won’t be there for much longer from what I understand.  Sad but its time I think has come … especially if it may become dangerous to use.  I love the colors that are slowly coming along the river!!  Will head down again next week to see how things are changing.

365 ~ Day 76 ~ Traffic

Just playing a little tonight!!  Was having a hard time coming up with ideas and then I think I haven’t done light trials in a while!!  


Can you See the Bus!! 


September 24th ~ Bokah

Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light”.  I love playing with bokeh but down always get the results that I like.  However, I do like what I was able to create … its not overwhelming just simple and I think adds to the image.

September 22nd ~ Out of Focus

I don’t usually post out of focus images but this one I really do like.  It just pulls me in, it is soft and bright!!

365 ~ Day 71 ~ Leaves & Patterns

I love photographing the fallen leaves and to make them interesting with some patterns or texture behind them!!


September 19th ~ Something You Love

Yes, this is what I love and I miss it when I don’t have the opportunity to head out and Capturing the World Around Me!!

365 ~ Day 70 ~ Sunflower Setup

Needed to play a little and come up with the sunflowers again.  I set up a backdrop for the sunflowers which I picked up at the dollar store … I should never go to the dollar store by myself!! I have way to much fun hahah :)


September 18th ~ Vertical Lines

There are a few “Vertical Lines” in this imagine.  I count at least 8 if not 9!!

365 ~ Day 69 ~ Brilliant Colors

Went for a walk along the river today to see how the colors are coming for fall.  Some spots are quite brilliant and others are things haven’t quite started to change yet!!


September 17th ~ Trees



Trees haven’t started changing yet, but I don’t think it will be to long now.  Love the love of this tree at Olympic Plaza.  Never noticed it before … has a very interesting shape to it.  A lot of character!!

365 ~ Day 68 ~ End of The Day

Didn’t a chance to get out and do any shooting today but the sunset couldn’t be resisted!!


September 16th ~ Long Exposure

Long exposure or slow shutter speed … Can be fun, if the wind cooperates with you!!  


Freeman Patterson teaches the style of Impressionism and I have a couple of his books and I just love his work.

365 ~ Day 67 ~ Horse ?

Found this wandering through TD Square. Now to be honest I have no idea what the store was, I was just totally intrigued with the sculpture.


September 15th ~ Flower


Ohh Sunflowers!!  I went out for a bit today to do a little shooting and came across the Sunflowers at the Fort Calgary Community Garden.  They always do such a nice job … a lot of hard work goes into this garden every year.

365 ~ Day 60 ~ Life is in the Details

Took me all day to come up with this!!  Forget that sometimes you don’t have to go far from home to find something pretty.  My sunflower that I just about picked as a weed this summer is still growing.  I love sunflowers!!


September 8th ~ From a High Angle

Well, this one took me forever!!  I couldn’t come up with an idea to save my soul!!  And today, (September 15th!! LoL) I was in TD Square downtown where there are several layers to this mall and went to the top layer and low and behold I found my “High Angle” Photo!!!

September 7th ~ Low Angle

Low angles are so much fun!!  You can do so many things!! Here is my first attempt at something at a low angle.  Will be fun to see what else I can come up with.


365 ~ Day 59 ~ My Little Friend

Well, My Little Friend … It has been fun but it is time for us to go our separate ways.  Until next time!!  Fingers crossed ... ages and ages from Now!!!


365 ~ Day 58 ~ Rather Dreary Huh!!

Well, even though I spent the weekend in the Hospital, I decided that I was still going to try and keep up with my 365 Project.  Not the easiest thing to do, and wasn’t sure what I would find find photos. But it got me off my butt and doing some walking which is really.

As I was off wandering some, mostly going for coffee!! LoL  I come across this scene.  Thought the clouds were rather dramatic.
