Sunny Stroll In Downtown Kingston

It is finally not only sunny, but also warm! That is, warm by Canadian standards. I think it was only 3C but it felt lovely and I'm starting to believe that spring is actually here. In town for some errands this morning, I had made sure to bring my camera. While I was trying to... Continue Reading →

Pioneer Spirit In Black And White

Today, I set out to write more about spring activities. But looking through my pictures, I obviously fell in love with the textures of the old buildings at O'Hara's Mill Homestead in Madoc, Ontario. The black and white pictures really bring the grain of the weathered and aged wood and bricks alive. Admittedly, these pictures... Continue Reading →

Kingston, Ontario

March Break - I have even heard it being called 'Midwinter Break' - is finally here and even though for us it is a 'staycation' we are lucky because we have very welcome guests with us.  So what do you do with guests - you try to show them how nice Kingston is and you... Continue Reading →

A Spring Day In The Sugarbush

I am thankful for spending a gorgeous day out in the sugar bush, helping to collect maple sap and watching how it is boiled down into maple syrup in the sugar shack. It takes a lot of work - 40 l of sap only make one liter of maple syrup! Sugar maple trees get tapped... Continue Reading →

And who would've thought, after the icy morning and downpouring rain in the middle of the day!Originally, I was going to experiment with my fish-eye conversion lens, but it turns out that it produces mostly really crappy pictures (I'll...

The Limestone City – Kingston, Ontario

I have just been inspired to share what I love about the city I live in. So even though I was compelled to be writing about other cities that I have lived in that without a doubt have been more exciting than the one I live in now (sorry, I'm from a major capitol in... Continue Reading →

More Icy Edits.

The other headline for this post that was buzzing around my mind was 'Am I Obsessed With Ice'. You decide. But really, it seems this is all that I'm surrounded by these days - snow and ice. And maybe slush sometimes, to keep it interesting. So gotta make the best of what's easily accessible... Yesterday... Continue Reading →

Boring Or Not Boring?

Reading up on composition and conveying the mood of the moment, I have recently come across this article on Clickin Moms. (Read it here.) Setting apart interesting from mostly boring photos was a good point. This can be achieved by switching up the perspective most of all. I've tried some of the recommendations out while...
