My photo

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.

I am out of town, Yesterday I captured this curch side door in the city of Penticton.
'O, once in each man's life, at least, Good luck knocks at his door; And wit to seize the flitting guest Need never hunger more. But while the loitering idler waits Good luck beside his fire, The bold heart storms at fortune's gates, And conquers its desire. "

This sunset was snapped through the windsheild as we arrived back in Maple Ridge after a day out of town.

Mind The Gap

Three years old and my niece keeps up with the pace. She's just so darned cute and is the youngest cousin on my husbands side of the family.
On the right in the brown leather jacket, is my son, the oldest child of his generation of cousins. There are18 years between them. Practically a generation gap.

These paper cranes are an example of the ancient Japanese craft of origami.

There is an old Japanese legend that states if you fold a thousand paper cranes, you will get your wish.

Locking Antlers

On our way home from Edmonton, as we drove through the Rockies we were stopped by a herd of Elk meandering across the highway. These two were up on the hill at the side of the road. Its a bit dim beacause we were losing the light . This picture doesnt show off their huge size. Soon I will post one that does.

ABC Wednesday - H

H is for HUGS.

This is my niece Kayla. She is 17.

For two years she has been fighting cancer.

She has been told there is no further treatment for her.
We will all need lots of hugs in the next few months!
These young ladies were at the fair offering free hugs. It did make our day!
