in Photo of the Day

It’s weekends like this that make me glad I’m not shooting on film anymore – I’d have filled up dozens of rolls of film with all the shots I took this week!

The week started off with my sweet parents-in-law paying a brief but sunny visit. Normally, the highlight of my Easter weekend photos is the colouring of eggs, but there were so many other things to photograph these pictures didn’t even make it to the blog! Anyway, here’s our Easter fun on Flickr if you’d like to see them. And here’s my favourite shot of that day:


I know, it’s a repeat from last week. And so is this one! But they’re cute enough to repeat, right? This cute duo came out for porch portraits with their adorable little brother last weekend. What a fun family!

Every week on my way to my French class, I walk past these flags near the National Arts Centre. I’ve tried to take a picture of them a few times, but I could never make the composition work for me. This week, I walked by on the Canal side for a change of pace, and the low perspective was just the trick!

Flags of Canada

(Can you match all 13 flags with their province/territory? And bonus question – why are they in this order? :) )

We found this beauty on a recent campfire outing with Simon’s Beaverscout troupe. Isn’t it gorgeous, in a vintage-abandoned sort of way?

And last but not least, Willie in high key.


Don’t tell him, but I’ve grown quite fond of the silly orange beast.
