Canada Day

We spent Canada Day celebrating with friends. This here is Drew enjoying his first sparkler.

Day of Birth

Tomorrow is my birthday. They don't seem to mean much to me anymore, not like they use to. One day older, not necessarily wiser, a bit more wrinkled and only sure of the fact that year after year it will continue. Can't stop a birthday can you.

Today was my "me" day. I got my hair done, took myself out to lunch and then to the movies. I used to think that going to the movies by yourself was such a lonely, sad thing to do but then I moved to a town where I had no friends and realized that you will do almost anything to survive. 

It was afterwards that I began to struggle. Chris was out with the baby and wouldn't be home for a while, what would I do? I wasn't used to having so much time to myself. I was excited about it at first but as the day wore on, I became anxious. I had my camera and tried taking pictures of the storm clouds but nothing seemed right. I went for a drive in the country but ended up on the same roads I always do. I tried to write the children's story that's been rattling around in my head for over a year but was too scared to put pen to paper.

So here I sit wondering what to do with myself. Wondering when my family will be home. Sometimes we should be careful what we wish for.

Scarborough Bluffs

The group and I went out again a few Friday's ago to capture a beautiful day at the Scarborough Bluffs. I truly enjoyed myself, having never been before but was disappointed in my shots. The day was quite bright and didn't allow for much contrast on the rock walls so we'll have to go back at Sunrise to see if we can change the results.

Slow Shutter

Last Wednesday night we spent a few hours in Toronto shooting the cityscape and CN Tower. I was more interested in experimenting with slow shutter speeds rather than getting a great photo (because I have little experience) and here are the results.

My favorite is the Bathurst Street Bridge shot with the various light streaks. I think I want to explore this a bit more.
