Day 257, 258

This week has been Spring Break for my kids and we have had some fun building bird houses with some bling.....relaxing and enjoying each other company.....we watched the new movie "Tangled" and I think it is my new favourite....the weather has co-operated a bit......it is not so bitter cold out.....yes...come on Spring.......

Unfortunately we have had a very very sick dog who required a vet visit this week and special food...let just hope she gets better soon.....

This is our other dog....he was the only one feeling up to a photo session....lol


I am off to class tonight the second last one....have a great day.....

Day 252, 253,

Lighting Class.....I am enjoying the lighting class that I am taking....it is hard to take away a photographers flash and say light an object....

Hard Lighting.......with reflective material.....side lighting

Soft Lighting...45 degree front lighting.....reflective material...

Tranmissive Material.....
One of the hardest things to light is glass but we managed to master it...with a little help....thanks to our instructor.....

This is another idea from another class that I took this past year...simplicity....shoot where you are....I have been spending many hours at the computer....coffee is keeping me going...lol....my desk looks like it is in need a good clean and some organization...but it organized for me thus far....lol.....the ideas have been a flowing.....

Check out the coffee stain on the calendar....lol





Today I am off to purchase another computer for our household.....wish me luck....

See you soon....xoxo Shiv

Scavenger Hunt Sunday + Day 247 & 248

Scavenger Hunt Sunday....it is interpreting words through pictures....use your imagination...let the ideas flow.....

Here are the words for this week......Camera Phone, Camera, Shoes, Chair and Imperfection

I have just recently switched phones from a Blackberry to the New Android Phone,  HTC Desire...still not 100 percent sure if I like it or if I will switch back to a blackberry....not loving the whole touch screen...I like having a keyboard....lol....this is a picture of a recent purchase of mine...an orchid, which was on sale otherwise I would have never bought it......this is a big thing for me...I do not have the greenest thumb for indoor plants....and they are suppose to be really delicate flowers...I am hoping I can keep it alive....

Day 242 - Mini Melt Away

Even though I am a little behind on the 365 Day Challenge....I am taking full responsibility for not  taking photos for those days....I could cheat but that defeats the whole purpose of the challenge....it has been way harder than I have ever imagined but I have also learned a lot along the way....I am determined to finish this challenge even it is not exactly one year to the day....I will still have 365 pictures....

I have met friends along the way who share the same interest who have inspired me......Thank-you....

I have taken many courses in the past year which have been fantastic...I start yet another course tomorrow and am super excited.......to more learning and inspiration around every corner!!

Here are my shot for today........a little indulgence...mini meltaways.....the tiny little mint that melts in your mouth.....


Warm Thoughts

Brrrr it is cold here....tonight with the wind chill it is reported to be -4o outside......hope this will warm you up....

Crossing my Fingers....we are all on the mend + Day 239

Between the normal routine of life...lets add in two sick children, a 7 hour stint at the hospital...one teenager...a husband who is working nights and a minor cold for myself...just not feeling 100 percent, no real other symptoms...maybe lack of real rest....and technically difficulties...me and technology just don't seem to be gettin along...what does that equal

= no time to do anything, behind on the 365 day challenge, no bloggin, no scavenger hunt or other blog entries :(.....here's to a better week...fingers crossed!!!! :)

Everyone seems to be on the mend!

These pictures were taken with my phone.....just figured out how to e-mail them to myself......lol...new phones...see I told you technology and I are not friends....
