Day trip

The weather went from snow to summer this weekend and we jumped at the chance to soak up a little sunshine and took a day trip to a neighbouring, lovely little town. There is much history in this place (as much as you can get in a relatively young country like Canada) so I took advantage of the opportunity and got some shots of the crumbly buildings before they erode back into the earth. 

The mill was undoubtedly my favourite. 

  
    
    
    

 
 

Something new for 2016

I have always loved art, and I’ve always tried to express myself creatively. I was a music major through most of school and enjoy writing, playing, listening to, creating, singing, and sharing music in every day life.

I also quite enjoyed visual arts.  Sadly, I was not blessed with any talent in creating beauty in that way but then,  one day I, discovered that I could create art through my camera. When I see something that stops my breath for a moment and I find myself lost in its beauty, it’s really cool that I can capture ensure that through a lens and a bunch of pixels on a screen. 

I do a lot of work with my photos, sometimes adding things, sometimes editing, but most of the photos that I like to post I do so unedited because I feel as if I’m compromising the natural beauty of the shot when I alter it. That said, there is still a lot of fun to be had an art to be created through digital editing. I thought I’d share a few of those with you guys here today.  :)

   
    
   
All of these photos were taken by me but have been digitally altered and items added for artistic purposes. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy 2016!

I thought I’d ring in the new year by posting some of my favourite shots from 2015.

My wish to you is that 2016 brings more love, happiness, joy and peace to your lives than you have ever known.  xx
