Spring Show – Need Help

I plan on entering some of these in the upcoming Spring Show with the Photo Club I am belong to. I want to come up with some catchy names for the photos. I feel catchy names also are a tool for people to be drawn to the picture. Are you able to help me out? Just make a comment below this post with your idea(s) for a name

For My Mother on Mother’s Day

This weekend is Mother’s Day in North America. It is a time to say thank you to all mother’s that we know, but especially the one who gave birth to you or raised you. My mother was a mother for 13 years before I came along. I am the youngest  of 5 girls in my family and after me finally came a brother. With my mom having so much experience being a mother before I came along you would think she would know how to handle everything. No! I was a different kind of challenge. No one could have prepared my mother for what laid ahead of her when I arrived into this world on that Halloween day.

Spring is Here!

Ahhh, the smell of sweet grass growing.  The beginning of colourful flowers emerging from the earth and filling their sweet nectar throughout the air.

The sap starting to move through the tree trunks and in turn the blossoms starting to form and open on the fruit trees, spreading more smells in the fresh air.

Crocuses

The birds have returned and have started building their nests. Robins are up early in the morning looking for big juicy worms that the dew drenched grass has tried to hide. The robins in turned thank us by serenading us with their melodic songs. No wonder this is my favorite time of the year.

Spring is Here!Robin

Holy Cow Is It 2013 Already???

At this time of the year people usually reflect on the year before. Things that should have been done and things that did happen. Is there a reason to have regrets?  Maybe that is what drives us to make change. At this time I would hate to break the tradition so I do want to reflect on this last year but I am not reflecting on the items I regret.( Don’t we all regret something?) Rather, I want to show you what I consider to be my best photos of 2012. I feel my photography has improved this past  year. I look forward to what 2013 will bring as well as what I will be able to achieve.

This photo won me first place in the Scott Kelby Photowalk 2012 in the city of Saskatoon, SK. I have been wanting to go on the Worldwide Photowalk for a few years and 2012 was the year I was able to join. Can’t wait until Fall of 2013 to join in again! This photo also won  ‘Best of the Show’ in our local Photo Club Continue reading
