I took this today while walking around some beautiful streets in New West. There were so many beautiful flowers and all the bugs were buzzing around doing their thing. I will be posting more from this cool walk today!

Atmosfear Ride At Playland

The new ride at Playland in Vancouver. It is over 200 ft high and spins at 70 Kph. You won't find me on this ride. I'd cry, barf, and then pee my pants. Too much liquid coming from one ride. (Goose bumps!) This is taken from the front entrance of my workplace across the street. Empire Stadium is just to the right of this ride next to the wooden roller coaster.

This Is A Stick Up.....

Michele standing next to one of the many 'stickered lamp posts' in the area of the Museum Of Anthropology at UBC. Was pretty neat to see and slightly decorative. They are like 'stamps' that people are given to prove they paid for the tour through the museum I suppose. Was a fun day and a neat discovery!

Sometimes You Have To Stop & Smell The Flowers...(of photograph them)

Ahhh Summertime flowers. The roses are at Chan's Rose Garden at UBC near the Museum of Anthropology. Was a beautiful day for photography.

Now That's Driftwood Baby!!

Oh how I am loving my wide angle lens. This was taken at Gilbert Beach today while hanging around with Shawna and her doggie Bella. Good dog, good friend, beautiful day! What else is there!

Tilt-shift processing first try....Chinatown

Tilt-shift is a process that makes photos look like they are taken in miniature. Brook showed me a website that gave instructions on how to do this processing in Lightroom 3. It's my first attempt and the detail work isn't quite right but it shows a bit of this cool effect! What do you think? It's so fun! Makes me want to go out and take hundreds of photos from a bird's eye view now!  I will see if I can find more to play with.

Can't Make Me

Jake tried to not have fun with this leaf. But he couldn't control himself. Was a valiant effort...but this shot shows he was giggling. I love how the corner of his smile peeks out from behind the leaf.

The Gardiners

We were worried about the weather today. Forecast called for rain all day. We decided to go for it! It's not often a plan comes together with entire families available. Here is the Gardiner family. We went to Queens Park in New Westminster. I have to say, this is one of my favourite family shoots I've done to date. Each boy had a different personality than the other, but loved each other the same. Thank you Lisa and Todd for the opportunity to photograph your amazing family!

Candies Galore....

Brook and I went for another photo day today in Fort Langley. We entered a candy store named IntoChocolate Specialty Sweets . It was heaven! We asked if we could take photos and the lady was very happy to let we went at it. As Brook was taking photos of fudge and chocolate, I was roaming around taking random shots of yummy stuff. The next few posts will be full of sweets! Enjoy!
