Cee’s fun foto challenge: Found in nature

This week’s theme in Cee’s fun foto challenge is what is found in nature. My absolute favorite since I spend a ton of time photographing exactly that, The possibilities of what one can capture are absolutely limitless. 


I found this little scoundrel back during the summer at Stanley park lookout point when I was just enjoying a cup of coffee, Here I was just minding my own business and looking into my camera to see what I captured when this bandit showed up. Didn’t do much more than just sit there with his friends, I’m saving the photo of those others for a future post  :) 


Another subject that I like to take pictures of, Is photos like these. It’s at a waterfall in Hope, BC. I had to walk up the stream in my sandals and believe me! Within a few short minutes I could barely feel my toes cause it was so dang cold. But! It was soooo worth it!

Some of you might know this. But, I am a huge fan of raindrops. After every heavy rainfall I have a love for running outside with both my Samsung S3 and my Sony point and shoot to take as many photos as possible, Some. I edit, others like this one I just vignetted. These leaves spoke to me the moment I saw them and I knew that I had to capture it. 

I hope you enjoyed these, I could go on forever lol! But, To be honest I’ve been a little nervous about sharing them. A few months ago, I had at least 5 people crop my photos and claimed their own, In some cases even my poems were stolen. I’ve sent them (They know they are) prepared legal notices to cease and desist or else face the wrath of both myself and the courts. Because, I plan to publish these plus many more in an Ebook sometime this year. Thank you for viewing and listening to my rant (lol) everyone! ^.^/ Registered & Protected  5OFJ-Y5TE-S392-QYJC

Daily prompt: Mirror Mirror

photo (11)

A still bog reflecting back at the trees as though reminding it where it stands

Today’s daily prompt asks ” Look in the mirror. Does the person you see match the person you feel like on the inside? How much stock do you put in appearances?

One has to wonder, Does everyone really reveal on the surface of what they feel on the inside? we live in a world where everything we say or do will either be judged, even when we simply speak what’s on our mind. 

But! I won’t avoid the question, I do show on the surface what I feel on the inside. It is who I am so why hide it right? Registered & Protected  5OFJ-Y5TE-S392-QYJC

Daily Prompt: All It’s Cracked Up to Be

Today’s daily prompt asks ” Tell us about a time when everything actually turned out exactly as you’d hoped

photo (9)

This brings me back to the day I took my daughter out for her first actual hangout with a friend she’d known since grade three to Playland. Our local amusement park, It is rather expensive. But it was worth it in my opinion to see my daughter and her friend glow in joy, They had a great time together.

Yet, at the same time it was a reminder. That she was growing up fast and soon won’t be needing me to take her places, I figured I’d make the best of it by not only joining in the fun but also taking them to their favorite dinner too. Kind of a toast, to friendship and growing up. It was great, to talk to them together and understand what it is they want to become when they grew up, when they asked me what I wanted. I told them I wanted to be a professional photographer and take photos as far as the corners of the earth, they giggled and said I was silly.

It was adorable, After dinner I figured I’d take them for a little afternoon stroll since the air was crisp and fresh even for a hot summer afternoon. So, off we went with the promise of nice cold ice cream at the end of it. Then, the most amazing thing happened. The clouds begun to break and gave way for this glorious photograph you see up top, The girls were awestruck and I told them “See what happens when you stay true to your dreams? they become real. Just look at how beautiful it is and i’m taking a picture of it with my phone” when we each had our ice cream cones walking back to my daughter’s friend’s place, They were open to listening to places I planned to go first, It’s a day I’ll never forget. :) Registered & Protected  5OFJ-Y5TE-S392-QYJC
