The Season’s-a-changin’

Been awhile since my last post – like many Canadians, I have SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). Don’t know how to take interesting landscape photos when the surroundings start looking bare and stark. You may not see much from me until … Continue reading

Collingwood Bygone Days

Visited a museum called Bygone Days Heritage Village in Collingwood (www.bygonedays.ca). Pretty neat, with many things dating back to the 1850’s. But I felt pretty ‘dated’ myself, when I recognized things that were from my own childhood days.                … Continue reading

Crazy for Classic Cars

I’m kinda ‘old school’ when it comes to cars — love the curves on classic models! My first and only car was a 1975 Volkswagen Beetle. It was bright lemon yellow with black trim. Unfortunately, the only picture I have … Continue reading

To All the Flowers I’ve Loved Before…

A familiar theme: flowers. Can you blame me? So naturally captivating! I’m worried I’m going to run out of subjects soon. Not because there aren’t great things out there to photograph, but with my social anxiety, it’s not always easy … Continue reading

Expressive Clouds and Sunsets
