Reflection and Moving Forward...

I finished my 365 Day Project the other day...

Reflection:

Although it was not 365 Days perfectly in a row...I can proudly say that I never cheated and continued on the journey finishing a few weeks late...I am proud of myself for this accomplishment...

I grew in confidence above most and learned a few other things along the way.....

Simplicity can be beautiful....see through the eyes of a lense...see the world at a different perspective....an escape......passion at it finest.....

I have met a ton of people through my work and can honestly say I love what I do....

I have also decided to continue on this journey by doing the 52 week project....a little lesser of a challenge...take a picture a week for 52 weeks...or add your favourite picture of the week.....to see what else I can learn and to grow as a photographer.....

Please join me......

I have met a ton of people in the blog world that have generous hearts, tips.............Although I don't get a chance as often as I would like to look through there work and comment.......my children have kept me busy and so have the many clients that I have met along the way.....

I am looking forward to this next adventure and wish everyone a fantastic summer..as I am off on holidays starting tomorrow.....

Stay Tuned...Pictures to be posted when I return.....

We took a trip on the Edmonton Queen....spent the day in the sunshine after a beautiful ceremony with some Celtic traditions....hand fasting....each person being united placed a ribbon over the hands of the couple....there were 7 ribbons to represent each child... they are then tied around the bride & groom's wrists together loosely to indicate that each of them are bound (happily!) by the promise of true love.....had a fantastic dinner and enjoyed a imtimate evening together...I wish Kari and Steve all the happiness in the World and am honoured to have been able to share in your special day with you.....

Day 354, 355, 356, 357, 358, 359 & Macro Friday

Ahhh the unispired...it has been raining here for over a week straight....but alas the sun is a shining...

I have been busy trying to entertain my children so I dont have to listen to them say the famous "I'm Bored"....I am sure we all said this as kids but I truly don't remember....we have done everything from play every game in the house, grocery shop, wash and clean-out car, read, watch a movie, play make-believe with stuffies, crafts, etc....been a busy week.....We are all longing to play outside.....

We made homemade Thai Food and this is the way my kids eat there noodles...they told me "Mom there is no reason to cut them, this works just fine." lol



We tried again with Miss Isla to see if we could get some sleeping pictures of her and "NO WAY" was she having any part of sleep....lol...I received some New Product from Frog and Penguin...and am hoping to get more opportunities to use her stuff....


Our one dog crack me up sometimes I truly think he thinks he is human......lol



While playing around with the camera yesterday..my son wanted to take a picture of me...and this is what he got...I think I may have a natural on my hands....I don't genereally care for to many pictures of myself but this one I like and I am super proud of him....


This is how much it has rained over the past week, we now have some fungus friends in our yard.



I have always wanted to take pictures of dragonflies but the opportunity never seems to arise, upon having my morning coffee, I noticed this mass on the fence and jumped into action as it was the biggest dragonfly I have come across in a while.... I am also entering these in Macro Friday and have a grin from ear to ear as I am super excited for these shots....






Please head over to Bloggin from Bolivia for more great macros!!

Have a great weekend everyone, as I have a busy one.....going to see my neice and newphew...have a wedding and then leaving on holidays in just over a week....HOT weather here we come...fingers crossed....

I forgot to add these, these are the pictures from the car wash...the boys were super helpful!!

Someone got a haircut..my handsome guys...

The End is Near....I have less than 15 photos

Wow it is hard to believe that it has been over a year since I started the 365 Day Challenge...I have less than fifteen photos to take...and then it is time for celebration....

I know that this Challenge is suppose to be 365 Days in a row, but in my case "Life Happens" and sometimes there were days that we were so busy....and I can proudly say I never cheated...if I didn't take a photo, I just waited and fell a few days behind.

I have learned in leaps and bounds from this Challenge and have enjoyed every moment of this Journey.....

I have taken a few classes, built a website and see the world through the eye of a lens....different perspective.....Simplicity sometimes can amaze you.....

Creativity sometimes does not come easliy and sometimes when unexpected moments happen, your camera is safely tucked away at home....lol

I am sending a big shout out to Charmaine over at Just Bits and Pieces for starting this Challenge in the first place...

There was a group of us that started and we all should be super proud of ourselves for what we have accomplished.....

I have met many a people in the blog world who share the same passion for photography and to those who host Challenges, Thank-you...

I am very excited to see where my journey is going to take me....
