*Don't forget the profits from the sale of these calendars are going to support a mental h
#FrameItFriday (week 45, season 3) This past week we've been extremely fortunate to escape for one final visit to our beloved #StudioNorth. Parting is such sweet sorrow but on to discovering new sunrise and sunset views. Time for another family to enjoy this sacred place. If you live in southern Ontario, this past week and for the next few days we will be blessed with warmer temps and lots of sunshine. I've managed to explore some back roads that I'd not been down, hike alo
#FrameItFriday (week 32, season 3) Sometimes the camera gear sits and rests. With the exception of it joining me on a bike ride and some real estate photography, my gear had some time off. Most of this week was spent assisting my husband with some long overdue projects. You never truly complete the "to do" list now do you? Something breaks from wear and tear or you decide you want to upgrade. On that note, the same goes for me. No, I'm not broken and although I'm sure parts o
#FrameItFriday (week 30 season 3) I'm working on my green thumb. This year I have attempted to grow radishes, spinach, arugula, cilantro, etc. In between roaming around taking photos for people and backroading for shots. The camera is winning out over the garden tools by a landslide. A hundred bucks says that all 100 tomatoes we've grown will all ripen the week we're up at #StudioNorth. ANYHOW, after a bite into the skinniest radish I've ever seen (it even had a trunk in the
#FrameItFriday (week 28, season 3) Holy my moly, may I just say to Mother Nature, "the banana bread has baked, time to turn the oven off!" As much as I enjoy being outdoors, this past week has not exactly screamed "get out and take photos". Asides from the few house photos my trusty camera has remained indoors languishing in it's bag in my air conditionied office/kitchen. Don't roll your eyes and sigh too deeply gentlemen but I'm sure you ladies out there will understand this
#FrameItFriday (week 26 season 3) Every summer when I'm lakeside I source out a volunteer to participate in my annual "cannonball" shot. I was lucky and found this lovely family on the final day of their camping adventure. It was a scorching hot day and there they were, shoreside at their campsite reluctant to leave for home on such a fine day. We discussed dragonfly nymphs, leeches, wildlife we'd all seen, my camera (when I brought it out). Their boys were already jumping an
#FrameItFriday (week 19, season 3) For once in a long time I have my #ChickPicotheDay shots all organized and teed up for the next few days. Much like this blog, it's usually "the morning of" that I stream through my shots and select the day's image. Most other things in my life are a bit more organized, planned and executed in a timely fashion then there's "I don't ever want to do it" or "I'm to tired to do that right now" over on my procrastination "to do" list. Do you have
#FrameItFriday (week 10, season 3) Today's tip, don't wait for that perfect time of day when it comes to places such as this one. The photo on the left was taken in December 2019 and the photo on the right was taken just last week (February 2020). Although they've been taken from slightly different angles you can see how much the structure's roof has dropped. I hope it makes it through winter. I won't be able to get back up that way until November of this year, fingers crosse
#FrameItFriday (week 6, season 3) Heyyyyyy.....guess who passed her man cold on to her husband? Yup...this gal! Poor guy has been home all week sneezing, coughing, sniffling...he's promised to return the favour to me one day (I can't wait! Actually, I can). I've been laying low as well, still got the entrails of a cough. I did get out for a few explores in my car but have been keeping away from the gen pop as to not spread my germy joy. Cabin fever is rampant around here. Spe
#FrameItFriday (week 42, season 2) How about that Thanksgiving eh? Too much food but always, always, always wonderful to spend time with the family. Here I am again, another week, another story......opportunity knocked last minute and I found myself on the road to our beloved #StudioNorth this past Monday. I just had to make sure I was home by early Wednesday afternoon for work. I went solo in spite of trying to convince a few of my friends to call in sick and join me lol. Ev
#FrameItFriday (week 34, season 2) Wait, what? The kids go back to school in just over a week! How did that happen? Summer flew by, we've still got those exciting end of summer events such as the CNE-Canada National Exhibition the Paris Agricultural Society, Home of the Paris Fair begins, Community Charity Airshowis in like 5 days! Anybody going to any of them or all of them? I'm not sure which one I'll hit up but they're all fun times. All exciting for me to photograph but i
#FrameItFriday (week 32, season 2) Well, we did it, we finally got away to our place of solitude #StudioNorth. In spite of the fact that #StellaCat pooped twice, barfed multiple times and drooled like a baby all before we made it out of our neighbourhood! Poor thing but it sure was a quiet 4 hour drive. Now before you have a pity party for the cat she's more than made up for her rocky start and is currently bugging us to build her a catio at home. She's fine and rated her exp
#FrameItFriday (week 31, season 2) This past week was a blur, my brain is cluttered like a hoarder's house. Ask my husband, he'd agree and also lovingly say "honey if you had a single intelligent thought inside your head it would die of loneliness". I don't mind, it's true except for the fact that I could still edit photos and take photos. That's it, nothing more, but thank god at least I could still do that. You know what all that means?

#FrameItFriday (week 18, season 2) So this is the SECOND time I've had to write this because I forgot to save a draft and lost the entire blog (waaa-waaa). In a nutshell this is what I have to say: 1)Moose get ticks that hang around until spring and bug the crap out of the moose. They aren't of the Lyme disease carrying type but they make the moose so itchy it licks and bites them off instead of eating...so they look starved and have mange but it's not mange. 2) the ice is n
#FrameItFriday (week 17, season 2) How'd your week go? Are you ready for the weekend?
I know I am AND I'm ready to go hang out in the woods. The zoo was fun and the animals were exciting to see but I think I want to see some in their natural surroundings. Unfortunately, due to lack of sponsorship I won't be going on an African Safari any time soon but I will be heading up to #StudioNorth in a few days time and that is just what the doctor ordered! No I'm not sick, but my hus
#FrameItFriday (week 5, season 3) In case you hadn't heard or felt it already, it's flipping COLD where I live. Not the kind of weather where you throw on a sweater and all is good. We're talking Arctic grade clothing, headgear and boots. If you plan on staying out for longer than 20 seconds. So, grumbling about it really doesn't do much good, it's Canada, it's winter, suck it up. I suck it up by hibernating the past couple of days which has forced me to do stuff that I have
#FrameItFriday (week 4, season 3) Let's just jump right into it this week shall we? It's about the run of feathered friends I've been posting all week long. As you may or may not recall I was skipping school last Friday for target practice. Now you know I wasn't going all Full Metal Jacket but just headed somewhere to where I could try and practice with Dixie (my "new to me" Canon 1Dx). About 40 mins down the road from me is this wonderful place called the Canadian Raptor Con
#FrameItFriday (week 51, season 2)
#ChickPicotheDay #MyFav12of2018 Tick-tock down to the wire....I've just realized Christmas Eve is Monday....I thought I had an extra day next week but I don't....oh well, the world won't end, that's for sure. This week I have to start out with a HUGE, HUGE shout-out to Posterjack, I'm proud to say is a CANADIAN company out of Mississauga. Remember the Porch Pirates stole my order off my porch? Well, ya that SUCKED but after a bit of investig
#FrameItFriday (week 49, season 2) We're up at #StudioNorth this week, including the cat (who drooled the whole way up and only barfed once). She's been napping 23 hours a day since she arrived. Not me, I am in my glory! So many backroads, so little time. I know I've said it many times before but we're so lucky here in Ontario, it's gorgeous. I have been a good girl (pretty close to Christmas and you know, Santa is watching)Some of my fall roads are now blocked with huge snow
#FrameItFriday (week 48, season 2) Hey y'all how was your week? Was it chock full of excitement? I couldn't tell you what I did to save my life this week, it's all a blur. I do know one thing I prefer the dollar store batteries over the more expensive Duracell's. Ask my mouse....it's sputtering away right this very moment on it's last breath with a AA deluxe in it. First world problem, I know. Why I just wrote about it just now? I've no clue or perhaps it's just filler for th
