An Author in the Family…

An Author in the Family…

My cousin John is a firefighter in the Ottawa area, and he’s recently written a novel entitled “The Spark”.

I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy, I LOVE to read many different genres- and although a suspense novel might leave me on the edge of my seat and possibly cause a sleepless night because I can’t put it down- I think I’ll really enjoy this read.


She’s So Sandi…

She’s So Sandi…

I love my photography page… but thought I wanted a place where I could be a little more random…so I started a personal blog right next door.  It’s not far away, so C’mon over- please bring a coffee, and we’ll put our feet up and laugh. (or if it ‘s after dinner you can bring wine. I like wine.)

Christmas Cheer- Gananoque Photographer

Today’s moment of Christmas cheer is brought to you by Kinslee. She was NOT into smiling for the camera, but I think that unplanned moments often turn out best.

My boys and their cousins – Gananoque family photographer

My oldest son is rarely EVER agreeable to being photographed. It’s not so much that he’s camera shy, as camera hostile…. but, because he loves his grandparents, he agreed to appear on camera- also partially due to peer pressure from his cousins. (and MAYBE some begging from his mommy….) He’s the one in the striped shirt.

My opinion is biased, but these are two pretty nice looking young men!

Insects, Bugs, Arachnids and Various Flying Things… (aka- I’m not scared of creepy-crawlies)

So many other bloggers inspire me…. I LOVE looking at other peoples pictures, wondering how they got that light, or that angle, what lens they used, and then sometimes trying something new myself.  In this case, I went back through my archives to find some of my favourite bug pictures, inspired by fellow photog blogger Mike Powell – especially by his amazing pictures of the scary creepy creature on his lavendar plant.  Mine are not NEARLY as technically perfect- some of them were just spontaneous- “quick get that picture”, others were planned….and in the interest of time, I pulled a few from my personal facebook albums- which are in low resolution.  (who knows which hard drive I’ve got some of them on!!!)  Next time I’m feeling like a photo adventure, I might just go in search of BUGS in a more serious fashion.

Also, feel free to correct me on my insect names.  I know my “dragonfly” actually has a different name thanks to thePalGuy and his blog featuring educated commentary on the various creatures he finds during his photowalks. (my commentary is usually limited to ‘this bug is PRETTY’)

So hard to capture a bee in flight… not my technical best, but fun trying!

if you only knew how long I waited for this bee to land….

pretty butterfly on a thistle

so nice of him to sit on the thistle so I get the pretty purple and orange together!

the elusive dragonfly

I could have stayed to watch this guy for hours… (I did stay for a long time though!)

I don’t know why everyone is so afraid of spiders, they are marvellous, beautiful creatures.

this was taken in near darkness with just my on-camera flash… not the best photo- but spiders don’t always wait for you to get all your lighting equipment out!

This guy fell for me- literally- I was walking along and he fell out of a tree onto my shoulder. He’s handsome- but not the most subtle little pick up artist!

....for more on why fluorescent is SO VERY WRONG

really… I warn you all … (especially you yellow cyclists from my most recent post) …it’s a slippery slope… you bring a little bit of fluorescent back, and next thing you know some poor little 13 year old girl will end up looking like THIS!!! Really, spare her the pain, learn from my poor choices…. stop the fluorescent before it takes over!
