Before I show you my photos for this week I just wanted to share one of the first pictures I ever took. This is from around 1981. As you can see, even in the beginning I had difficulty finding interesting subject matter and I continue to struggle with lighting and angles.
The camera I used is long gone now. It was a little plastic point and shoot and it didn’t have a built in automatic flash. It used one of these ghastly disposable external flash bars.
It really makes me appreciate how far we’ve come with modern technology in photography.
And now this week’s photos:
I said wasn’t going to, but I did go outside last weekend. If it hadn’t been for the ridiculously low temperature, Sunday would have been a beautiful day.
Even Maya’s fur coat can’t keep her warm in this weather.
On Tuesday, I drove down to the lake on my lunch break to check out the water fowl action. Not much was happening. Most of the ducks were sleeping.
As much as I’m looking forward to the end result, right now this project is a constant reminder about how much I loathe the Canadian winter. It’s always so dark and cold. When there is sunshine it always seems to be accompanied by a bitter wind chill. The balmy days are wet and gloomy. This brown and grey palette is getting old. I long for green grass and blue skies.
Since I took a picture of Maya earlier in the week, I thought I’d take one of Gwendolyn. I don’t want them to think I’m playing favourites. I love her neatly tucked paws here.
Earlier this week I mentioned my foray into quilting. Here’s a little sneak peak at the project.
Our basement renovation is in full swing right now. Old walls are gone and new ones are going back up. Here’s the light switch to for the laundry room right now.
