Taking A Picture of Someone Taking A Picture....

I enjoyed this! I think I'll be doing this a bit more.....taking a picture of someone - (that someone probably being my daughter - since she's always taking pictures) - taking a picture!

These were taken in Eganville, Ontario at the beginning of August.

I snapped this one of my daugher - with my Canon EOS T1i...

And this is what she was taking a picture of - her favourite thing - herself - using "her" Pentax K200D...

Me shooting her....

Shooting this...

Birthday Blanket

I received a blanket - made from a picture of my kids - for a birthday gift about three years ago.

There wasn't really a good spot upstairs to hang it - because it's HUGE!

Today we finally hung it up - in the basement. Lots of (ugly) wall space down there - and it's not so (ugly) any more with this on it!

Of course they had to ham it up for this picture....picking their noses!

Lauren And Some Postcards...

While cleaning up and re-arranging our basement over the weekend, Lauren stumbled upon some old - and I mean really old - postcards.

She was taken with them for some reason.


Such a fun app for your iPhone!

I haven't abandoned you Canon. I promise.

Some Instagram Pictures From The Beach....

Ah...not too many days left to enjoy the beach. It's already getting much cooler at night! Summer - so short.


I find this sign very amusing...

A pretty rainbow...

I Haven't Watched The News For One Whole Week!

One week ago today I stopped watching the news.

I do see the odd story in my Facebook and Twitter feeds....maybe I should unfriend and unfollow those people!

My Daughter Takes GREAT Pictures...

Like this one.

So beautiful. She has the eye.

She's using my old DSLR - A Pentax K200D.
Love that camera.

P.S. She's 12.
P.P.S Six days news free.

Two Days - Still No News!

Besides seeing a few updates from my Facebook and Twitter feeds, I still have no idea of what's going on in this crazy world.

But I did see the following:

One story about a woman in London...who refused to give up her hair salon to the THUGS who have gone crazy....GOOD FOR HER!!

And one story about a company in Ottawa, who is closing shop - laying off 200 employees. Well, 18 of them played the lotto and won Wednesday's 6/49 - SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS!! Awesome!

Don't know who died today.
Don't know who was murdered today.
Don't know about the companies closing down today.
Don't know if the stock market is up or down today.
Don't know about the double-dip recession that may or may not happen today.

....etc., etc., etc.


Wednesday, August 10, 2011 Ginger. Ginger.

She's my outdoor cat during the spring/summer/fall...
then she turns into my indoor cat during winter.

Tonight though, she wants to sleep inside so she found her way
onto my pillow and posed pretty for the iPhone!


And here is one of my favourites - well, I think almost everything I post will be my favourite...

This one was taken while visiting my cousin who is visiting out of Province.

They rented a cute little cabin and when I saw this dock....I thought...perfect iphone picture opportunity coming right up!

I Quit Watching The News.....

And I quit going to news's been almost 24 hours. Woohoo! I posted a little rant on my Facebook about it last night. Just so tired of hearing about doom and was actually making me depressed.

I know I won't be able to hide from it all...but for now, I like what I'm doing.

I bought Porta De Rossie's book today "Unbearable Lightness" - and off I go to start reading it.
