The weather man is warning Calgary of sever winter weather ahead, and I am dreaming of some of the warmer places we could be. Sunrise is one of the lovely quite times on the cruise ship. The sunrise isn’t always this colourful, and they are often over quickly.
Maybe I will brave the weather and see what photos I can get of Calgary today…..
Erin and Ken were married a little more than 4 years ago, and just over a month ago they were blessed with a beautiful baby girl. I have been lucky enough to be there to share these, and many other special moments, with them.
I have been spending a little time this week going through the inventory of old photos, something I call it treasure hunting. Today I declare myself rich with treasures, memories and friends.
Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky, We fell them down and turn them into paper, That we may record our emptiness.
I have been spending a lot of time doing both family and business portraits over the last year, and enjoyed every minute. Luckily I have also had time to spend getting out of the studio/home and thinking about landscapes. I love the trees as they blow in the wind, the tall pine trees had been covered by the wet snow, long white streaks against a dark background.
I have been exploring and experimenting with long exposures, motion and blur, and love the feeling of the image, white streaks representative of the growth, reaching for the sky, enhanced by the snow stuck to the side of the tree. Freeman Patterson has always been one of my favourite photographers, and this photo is reminiscent (at least for me) of his work.
I met Donia last weekend, just a little over three weeks old and sound asleep we are reminded how precious these little bundles are. Another little pumpkin in the pumpkin patch. I doubt that her parents will tell her that she was found in the cabbage patch or that the stork delivered her!
Donia is gorgeous, and a wonderful reason for owning a camera. Her mother, Erin had maternity photos taken about three weeks ago, and it was a great joy to met Donia in person. I am looking forward to watching her grow up.
