Eastern Autumn Leaves - Charlottetown, PEI - October 2013

We don't have bright red leaves like this in Western Canada, so I really impressed me how rich the colors were.

2016 ~ February 18th ~ Grass

No green grass here in Calgary in February unless you paint it green. However, this little patch of sunlight has made the tan grass glow quite nicely.

2016 ~ February 16th ~ Flowers

Its the middle of February and sometimes it can be very dreary ... no sun, no color, and everything is brown.  So it is the best time to buy yourself some pretty bright flowers!!

2016 ~ February 15th ~ Soft

Playing with my macro lens to see what I could create.  Flowers are such great subjects ... they don't argue!!

Inglewood Bird Sanctuary

Well, Everyone had the same idea today.  The weather has been just beautiful here and why waste it hiding in the house.

The pond is still frozen over so not much for water birds around ... you could hear them but couldn't spot them.  However, the chickadees were out and about and quite happy to follow you around.  I had one actually land on my hand but unfortunately I wasn't ready with my camera.  However, my Mommy was lucky and quite thrilled!!!

She didnt want to move just incase she scared him and wouldn't come back for a second try!! So that is why she isn't looking at the camera!

Missed Photography Subjects - January

I started working on a list of subjects while I am out shooting.  A way to keep me going and sometimes you need some ideas to get the juices flowing.  But sometimes,  you don't always get them accomplished.  So I thought I would keep the ones I didn't get done and post them, with the idea that maybe sometime through out the year I will run across something that will work with the subject.

2016 ~ February 11th ~ Out and About

I love the idea of out and about ... you can shoot just about anything :)  This is along the riverwalk near East Village.  It is a great walk and there is some great things to see.

2016 ~ February 1st ~ Vintage

Well, I hate a hard time trying to decide what I wanted to use for vintage ... good grief, how vintage do I want to go.  But while out and about one day for a drive, come across an antique shop and was able to find a few little things.

Everyone want a red bike when I was a kid!!!
