This week in pictures: Suddenly springtime summer!

4 May 2013 Photo of the Day

So, how ’bout that weather, eh? We had seven months of winter, two transitional weeks of spring and BOOM! Summer in May. And I am totally fine with that. I don’t know whether it is the warmer temperatures or long hours of sunshine or just the fact that I’ve finally shaken the ennui that’s been […]

This week in pictures: (Almost) an entire week of puppy

26 March 2013 Photo of the Day

You can hardly blame me. (Almost) an entire week of puppy pictures? For one thing, she’s already grown since we got her, and I’m glad I’ll have more than the two or three photos I have of Katie’s entire first year. Also, cute puppy is the low-hanging fruit of the daily photo world. Finally, the […]

This week in pictures: March Break and the arrival of Bella

17 March 2013 Photo of the Day

If you’ve got a great new camera, it only makes sense to find something cute to take pictures of, right? And since I utterly lack adorable and patient photo subjects (not really), you can understand why I rushed out and got us a puppy, right? Cuz this week was all about two things: March Break […]

A fun project for an excellent cause

14 January 2013 Life in Ottawa

I am so excited about this! Last week, I read on Harry Nowell’s blog that he is putting together a celebrity photo contest in support of the Ottawa Food Bank. The celebrities won’t be IN the photos, however; they’ll be TAKING the photos, on the theme of “Why I love Ottawa/Gatineau.” The photos will be […]

A Capital Walk

18 May 2012 Ottawa's hidden treasures

This post is a part of my ongoing series about “Ottawa’s Hidden Treasures.” I love this one because you have no doubt walked or at least seen a part of this route dozens of times before – but have you ever taken the time to walk the entire loop from the Alexandra Bridge to the […]

This week in pictures – spectacular spring

12 May 2012 Photo of the Day

It’s been one of those weeks when I look at the pictures from earlier in week and think, “No way, that wasn’t this week. Surely that has to have been longer ago than just a few days!” It’s been so crazy that I have two full blog posts to write about photographic fun, one about […]

This week in pictures: drippy and dreamy

6 May 2012 Photo of the Day

Spring is a photographer’s dream. Everywhere there is colour, contrast, interesting shapes – and it is SO welcome after months of winter’s monochromatic greys and dirty whites. Even the dandelions are beautiful! I like this one of the orange tulips in my garden because I think the orange pops against the green and I like […]

This week in pictures: early mornings, proud Canadians, and Lucas’s ode to cows

28 April 2012 Photo of the Day

I seem to be feeling inspired early in the day this week. The majority of this week’s pictures were taken within the first hour or so, some before I’ve even had my first coffee. Early bird gets the photo? It seems like ages ago now, but it was only Monday that we woke up to […]

This week in pictures: In which Mother Nature reminds us that it is still in fact winter

3 March 2012 Photo of the Day

Nice weather this week, eh? Nice if you’re a skier, not so much if you’re pining for green grass and tulips. Sorry, you can totally blame me. I started BBQing last weekend, and I think the Universe wanted to remind me that it’s not quite spring yet. The good news is, the weather has been […]

Project 365: A wet week with a sunny ending

22 May 2011 Photo of the Day

I am on a picture-taking tear these days, so much so that I keep filling up the hard drive on our laptop and have to regularly pull the pictures off the computer and store them in a separate hard drive. And life has been so busy, while I’m finding the time to take the pictures, […]
