Hanging On

It is good to see that I am not the only dried up shrivelled thing to hang on until the end of the year.

Just a couple of girls making cookies

Sisters and best friends spend some time at their aunt's house making cookies.

Needing the Sun

Felt like crap (can I say that internationally?). The way to fix it was to go for a walk in knee deep snow with my camera. It is odd that thinking about something like hunting for photographs actually is so distracting that I forget that I feel like crap.

Such is the nature of the human brain.

Snow

Snow does look good with a low sun creating shadows.

Keep On Truckin'

I live in the pick-up truck capital of B.C.. Sometimes they seem to outnumber the number of people.

And now that Christmas is finished, we will start seeing Christmas trees in the boxes of many of those truck. They usually stay there until Easter.

You have to like traditions.

Stop

Stop! The jollity and merriment have had their day and now . . .

maybe we could think about someone else. Someone not in our families. Maybe we should give a little, just a little, to someone we don't know.

Les Fleurs

The good thing about non-natural flowers is that they bloom in the dead of winter.

Staring at the Sun

My feet got wet but I shot the picture.

The Missing Balaclava

The colour against the snow caught my eye. Someone's head went home unprotected.

Where Is The Green?

Too much snow. Where are the warm sunshine, the green plants, the sound of the water?

Bakery

Just because they are cute.

You're the Top

You're the top, you're the Coliseum,
You're the top, you're the Louvre Museum,
You're a melody from a symphony by Strauss,
You're a Bendel bonnet, a Shakespeare sonnet, you're Mickey Mouse.
You're the Nile, you're the Tower of Pisa,
You're the smile on the Mona Lisa,
I'm a worthless check, a total wreck, a flop,
But if baby I'm the bottom, you're the top.

- Cole Porter

How Can You Eat Bacon Now?

After looking at this cute face, will you give up bacon?

Shadow of My Heart

Have you ever made love n the snow?

Ain't No Mental Speed-Wagon

Have you ever had one of those days when your brain doesn't quite feel up to par? How about a lifetime of those days.

Punishment Will Ensue

Maybe they will spank my little bum.

A Big Fat Lie

I woke up this morning and all the snow was gone. Not just melted, it was gone. The sun was shining. The air was warm. Birds were singing. I was a handsome young man.

I then woke up for real.

Rock Garden

I keep wondering if is possible to shoot a photograph of snow. Getting there but it is still more than just snow.

A River Runs Through It

The Nechako River is choked with ice at its confluence with the Fraser and is flooding. Some homes and businesses have been evacuated.

This is from 2 days ago. Today's blizzard made me keep my camera warm and dry.

Homeless

It gets cold here. COLD! There are people who have no home.

More Snow

More snow.

Windows 1.1

Do you ever photograph windows? Do you ever think "Maybe they think I am some weirdo and they might call the cops."?

Heat me up, baby.

An old hot water radiator.

This is an old shot. I was occupied today and didn't get any shots. I might have used this before but who is going to notice unless I mention it?

Icing Sugar

Sometimes a little sugar sprinkled on the dessert makes a lot of difference.

Footprint

Sometimes if you follow in the footprints of another, your life can improve.

Rain

It is snowing now but it was raining this morning. -14 Celsius and raining. There is nothing like freezing rain when you are driving.

19 20

I sometimes think I shouldn't be living in my Hobbit Hole apartment but at least I don't live somewhere like this. Tiny little places beside a busy noisy street. Thin walls so they are probably a little chilly in winter.

The Bridge

The ice is flowing. The air is suitably chilled and the breeze is biting.

Yes, it is winter.

My Story

My photo

I got my first camera, a Canon Ft QL, in 1974. It was supplemented by a Canon F1 in 1976 so that I could have a camera for black and white and one for colour. 

I still have those beauties but now they have eased into retirement. They relax on my shelf beside many other old beauties.

Now I use a Canon 5D MK II. How convenient to use one camera for both colour and black and white.
