This week in pictures: families and farms and other creatures

I went to my Flickr account to pull up the photos from this week and blinked in surprise at the photos I took last weekend. Wait, that was only seven days ago? Surely to god this has been the longest week in history? Sure seems that way!

Last Saturday I had the immense pleasure of meeting this adorable trio of siblings when they came to the house for the last set of porch portraits before we tear apart the porch (whimper) to replace the poop pipe. Are they not the cutest kids ever? I’ve got a handful more shots from this fun session that I can’t wait to share, but this sneak peek will have to do for now.

PS don’t you love my wagon? It’s my new favourite prop!

This one is from our Roots and Shoots farm adventure on the weekend.

Speaking of farms – cows are funny!


This one is also a repeat from an earlier post this week. How cute is this? We found him like this – he had crawled under the blankets and tucked himself in.

I wish the “no trespassing” sign was just a little bit more clear in this one — it was funny how he stood there for quite a long moment, watching me snap this one with my iPhone. A friend on Flickr noted it would be even funnier if he were posed beside a “No hunting” sign.

I took this one at about 10:00 in the morning on Thursday when it was stupidly hot downtown. I think the picture, even though it’s an Instagram snap, captures the stinkin’ hot stillness of the morning. (I also like this view of the Canal, which I have never photographed before. Goes to show you that sometimes when you’re composing a good shot, you should turn around and look the other way in case there’s an equally good or better shot behind you!)

More than half of these photographs were taken with my iPhone, which is indicative of the kind of “snap one on the run” kind of week it has been. And now that the summer solstice is behind us, these sunsets will be creeping earlier and earlier into the day again.

This is the first weekend in a month that I don’t have a portrait session scheduled — gee, I’m going to have to work hard to find something to photograph this weekend. I think I can manage, though! 🙂
