angels who go before us…

UBC TOTEM POLE 10

I visited one of my favourite places today–the UBC Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver, BC. It is an absolutely spectacular museum full of First Nations treasures that tell the history of our province well before the white settlers arrived. A united church minister once described people who die as the “angels who go before us”, and I think it’s a beautiful way to remember loved ones. It also struck me as the perfect title for this post.

murderous citrus…

Blood Orange

If you knew just how grey and wet the Pacific Northwest is today, you would know exactly why I’m eating blood oranges. That’s right. I feel kinda homicidal and kinda in need of some serious Vitamin C!!!! We have a rainfall warning in effect, and it seems to be sadly accurate…for once. #@$!%!@#@#^$%&(!!!!

Namaste darlings

say cheese…

When your teenaged daughter says, “Okay. You can you take a picture of me,” you choke on your coffee, leap to your feet and run upstairs to get your camera bag…STAT!!!!!!! Please tell me that this wasn’t some freak of nature due to a head injury. Hopefully it’s a breakthrough that will last and I’ll be able to keep shooting her photos.

Over Christmas, I managed to make some time to fool around with my new prime 50mm f1.4 lens. I’m finally getting used to the manual focusing, which is good ’cause I’ll have to make due with it until I can afford a much better camera body.

What a great way to start off the 2015! I was interviewed for a wonderful blog called Coffee With A Canine, which profiles really interesting people who love coffee and their furry companions. I struggled to get decent photos of my dogs, because they’re lawless and camera shy (hmmm…come to think of it, so are the humans in my house). Pop by the interview and get all the juicy details about my exotic life.
