Sibbald’s Point

No photography for, like, 6 months. Am having to relearn the very basics all over again – urghh!

These shots are from a day trip to Sibbald’s Point, out on Lake Simcoe, and a random pic of my dog. We did African drumming with Phil, Wendy, and Eric from Shaw Percussion.

Coptic Church

It was a challenge positioning myself in the snow. Frankly speaking, I don’t know how photographers do it.

Trying to Find a Groove

Nothing in particular about these photos, except one is from my current personal development course (Managing Conflict). And there’s my dog, of course. She always crosses her paws, very lady-like.  🙂

Click on the photo below to enlarge it. It’s a jigsaw puzzle of self-understanding around personal pain from the past and how it impacts one’s life today.

The Season’s-a-changin’

Been awhile since my last post. Like many Canadians, I have SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), so I get extremely depressed and just want to hibernate when the colder weather starts setting in. And I really don’t know how to take interesting landscape photos when all the leaves have fallen and the surroundings start looking bare and stark. You may not see much from me until next spring!

Collingwood Bygone Days

I recently visited a museum called Bygone Days Heritage Village in Collingwood (www.bygonedays.ca). It was pretty neat, with many of the items, buildings, and farming equipment dating back to the 1850’s. But I also felt pretty ‘dated’ myself, when I recognized things that were from my own childhood days.  😐
