Week 8

Week 8 of my 52 Random Weeks project is brought to you by the word… Verdant! Sigh… “Green with grass or other rich vegetation”. Sob! How I wish I could take a picture of a verdant meadow. How I wish I could then flounce happily through it, barefoot. How I long for spring’s warm temperatures […]

Canada vs. Sweden: a breakfast sandwich

Today was a good day, and that’s saying something because it’s not even 3:00 pm yet. We woke at the crack of dawn to watch our Canadian olympic men’s hockey team win a gold medal. …Again.

French onion soup grilled cheese

This post is about the flavours of french onion soup within grilled cheese. A delicious inception of gooey, melty, onioney goodness. I saw this on one […]

Snow dog

This dog. Just take a look at this majestic creature. How weird is it that we have animals that like, live with us in in our houses. And we’ve figured out ways to communicate with them. They understand a little of our speech, we a little of theirs. They love us unconditionally. How lucky we […]

Week 5

This week was tough, creatively. The random word of the week was: Hideous. As a photographer, I have a hard time finding anything hideous. The ugliest things, when captured well, can seem beautiful, or interesting, or striking. Or all of the above. I couldn’t think of anything I might come across in my daily life […]
