Brrr! I don’t recall being this cold in a long time! Winter is finally here, though it’s sunny still. I love how where we live, the seasons start slowly. Often it will be a full month into summer, autumn, winter or spring before the weather really sets in. What that means for today, is that…

Light is so incredibly important in photography. Not just any light, mind you. Not harsh, bright sunshine, not blue shadow, either.

In pursuit of the dream, I borrowed my parent’s film camera, and much to their chagrin, took…

It was time to celebrate … My sister-in-law had just completed the very last exam of many in the long years of training to become a medical doctor, now general practitioner. Typically, she was acting like it was ‘no big deal’ but we knew better, so we gathered round to help her celebrate. Lunch with the family, and then…
