My photo
Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada
I am happiest when I am out with my camera. Always looking for the bright side. Usually I find it! Please contact me via comment if you wish to use any of my photography. Thanks for stopping by.

Sorry to have been so long since my last post. Unfortunately, I have been having technical issues with my computer.

Last night the sky was broody and made for a very dramatic sunset. Sometimes I see a sky like this and can't help but think that God has painted yet another masterpiece. This one was seen over the greenhouses. No filter or edits. Just a raw natural light show!

Happy Mothers Day Mum. Did you get it yet? I doubt it. I was a bad, bad daughter, and didn't get your parcel in the mail soon enough. It's just a small gift, but it is sent with love.
You have always encouraged me to follow my dreams and to reach for the highest attainments in life (Hmm, that sounds familiar!). But whenever I have fallen short, you still made me feel good. You let me know you were proud of me for even trying. Do you know though, that I am proud of you? For always succeeding at everything you do. With hard work and determination, everything you touch turns to gold. Well, apart from the odd pie that got left to brown a bit too long! We have been through some trying times these past few years, faced some terrible losses and heartaches. But we came through because we have a loving family that will never let us down. You are the heart of this family, a heart of gold.
This is your gift. As you suggested, I started making the photo note cards. Yours are the first. I hope you like them. I can only hope I will be as successful with my photos as you have been with your endeavors.
Thanks for the inspiration.

sit spot

My sitting spot. This is the place on our back deck that catches the last of the evening sun.

I could sit here dreaming for hours. Listening to the birds and the local children at play.

Home Again

The dog is thrilled to have the master back here in Maple Ridge after a lengthy out of town job. I must say I am glad to have him back too.
After dinner the first order of business was....WALKIES!!!

Missing you

Where oh where could my master be?

The dog has been almost as forlorn as myself while hubby has been away. Counting down the hours now!

Fence Line

I love some of the barns in our area, so well kept up.

I recently saw this old barn on my travels to the Okanagan that was more than slightly neglected. But was very interesting to photograph.

Feel free to stop by my personal blog A Thousand Wordsworthy at any time. I'd love to see you there!

Everything is green again.
Suddenly, spring is here.

Waters Edge

Looking over the side of the wharf.

I have been tied up with family doings and work, so I have been scarcely posting this week. Hoping to get back to dailies shortly!
