Did ya miss me? ;) And I don't even have a good reason for not posting. No big problems with kids plumbing or the house's so I certainly can't complain. We actually went to a friend's farm where we harvested Jerusalem Artichokes. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun. We also got to see some really cute piglets as well as some adorable puppies. There was a cute little chocolate brown one that just melted my heart. The kids had a grand time running around and playing on hay bales and checking out all the livestock. And now I have a 50 pound bag of those artichokes. Apparently they're a lot like potatoes so we'll have to see what I can come up with in the kitchen.
I took the kiddos down to the waterfront on Friday to do a little impromptu photo shoot. I love photography and had taken a wee break for a bit. A friend of mine had invited me to do a photo blog where you post a picture a day, but I quickly got burnt out and ended up abandoning things and re-evaluating why I enjoy taking pictures. While I've had my go at some professional type gigs, I don't feel that thats what I want to do with my photograpy, much better suited to someone with more time and more skills. What I enjoy is just spotting images that I find interesting or at least feel that I could make interesting. I especially love nature and trying to capture it with my little camera. Its fun and something I can do with my family and even include them in it. Hence the little photoshoot. It was late afternoon so I was pretty sure of some good lighting. I chose the waterfront because there's an old train turntable that is a really unique space. Plus the kids LOVE it there and could spend an entire day there I'm sure!
So here are some shots that I liked:
