A post that is close to my heart – I’ve updated it for accuracy and added more photos of precious dance memories.
I love taking photos with delicate traceries of lines that invite you to look deep into a particular scene and find something new every time. Read more
Last week, my husband and I travelled to Canmore, Alberta, and experienced some real winter weather. As a result, I thought I could write a helpful blog post with tips on safe winter driving.
But, who’s kidding who… I don’t actually drive. So instead, I’ll share some (mostly) helpful tips on how to be an awesome passenger when you’re on a road trip during the winter. Read more
When I think of growth, I think of change – how it broadens our perspective and expands our horizons.
New Year’s Day brought us the first supermoon of 2018, a phenomenon where the moon happens to be full just as it’s orbiting closest to Earth. In July 2014 I photographed a supermoon from the deck of a BC Ferry.
First I watched the sunset. Read more
This past weekend had some of the most beautiful autumn weather I’ve ever seen in Victoria. The sky was cloudless and blue, the air was warm (17 degrees Celsius!) and the trees continued to show vibrant colours everywhere. Read more
When I was looking through my husband’s photo album last week, I noticed he had photos of Georgian Bay in Ontario. “Georgian Bay?” I thought. “Where have I heard that before?” Read more
This year, as we marked the 150th anniversary of Confederation in Canada, I realized that I haven’t seen a lot of our vast country. So I spent some time looking at my husband’s photo albums from the ’90s, when he went on road trips throughout Alberta and then all the way to Ontario.
The photos were taken with a film camera and have a beautiful soft muted quality I had forgotten about. My husband remembers spending a lot of time setting up these shots because film was expensive, plus developing the pictures afterwards cost a pretty penny.
Knowing that, each photo seems like a precious jewel that my husband found along the way.
I hope you enjoy these creative glimpses of beauty in Canada.
As the summer winds down, I thought I’d share some photos from a previous summer stroll my husband and I took through another one of Victoria’s treasures – Beacon Hill Park.
Imagine a cool evening with the setting sunlight playing through the trees. You step onto a trail from Dallas Road or Cook Street and wind your way through to the centre of the park. Sit back and enjoy a few views of this beautiful place. Read more
If you’ve read my blog before, you’ll know that I like to talk about Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. As one of my good friends said, “You can’t not write about a place named Moose Jaw.” 🙂 The older I get, the more I appreciate this city on the prairie and my family’s history there. Read more
