joy in the little moments…

 

Butterfly Beach, Santa Barbara, California

Butterfly Beach, Santa Barbara, California

I love being 51 years old. I know it sounds crazy, but I’m convinced I’m getting younger. At this point in my life, I really focus on experiencing true joy. I’m definitely not sweating the small stuff any more, and the beautiful little moments in life mean so much to me. This sounds so “new age”, but I can’t help it. I’m a believer in shifting my paradigm and finding joy everywhere I look 🙂

Hello friends…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, but I’m back at it. This shot was taken during our family’s vacation in Santa Barbara at the beginning of September (2015). Such an amazing area, with potential shots every direction I looked in. The light in California is gorgeous for photography, and I was in heaven. I think it’s where I want to be forever 😉

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.

Project 365 Photos: #32

I’m really inspired by colour. If I had a favourite colour, it would be aqua. Add robots to the mix, and I go crazy. When it comes to photographing, I’m instantly drawn to colours, like a crow that spots a fry from a mile away! The shoppers in the Whistler Lush store must have thought I was nuts shooting pictures of these adorable bath bombs–crazy tourist!!! Here’s a shout-out to the Lush girls, who helped me out with my photos! I’ve got a great one of Inka that I’ll profile tomorrow.

SKI SILVERSTAR

Sunny Silverstar

I love skiing. I love the smell of the trees in the snow; the sound of the snow crunching under my feet; the sound of skis and snowboards cutting across the snow; and, esepcially the smell of burgers and onions grilling during the lunch hour. The rest of my family feels the same way, so we drove up the winding road out of Vernon to reach the top of Silverstar mountain this morning. We didn’t ski today, but we will tomorrow–wooohoooo!!

Vancouver’s Chinatown Bound…

I played hooky from all my responsibilities on Friday and headed to Vancouver’s vibrant Chinatown district with my good pal, Sarah, of Diary of a House Elf. What an absolute pleasure it is to sling my camera over my neck and start snapping shots–I really don’t do it enough. Chinatown is full of visual–and nasal–stimulation!!! It’s a gritty area with extreme poverty bumped up against extraordinary beauty. The people are so friendly and curious, and Sarah observed the irony that the bustling streets are more of a “neighbourhood” than our quiet suburban village.

The lighting was really perfect for taking outdoor shots…Vancouver grey! It was also a perfect opportunity put my new telephoto lens to the test.
