Happy Together

It's such a trite thing to do, this posting a fortune from a cookie. 
I don't care. 
This is one fortune worth believing.

The Ants Go Marching One By One

When Jodie was visiting, we had a picnic on our front porch.

We put out an offering of potato salad for the locals.

They seemed to enjoy it.

And for dessert? Watermelon!

O Canada

The drive from Cranbrook, BC to Calgary, AB is just gorgeous!

One thing Jodie wanted to do when she visited, was blow bubbles in our back yard.

New Lens, New Light

I popped on my new camera lens - 50mm F1.8 - and took some photos this morning.

My photo mentor posted a video explaining how to use reflected light to get a nice portrait.

Grace allowed me to take several photos. She was very patient.

She looks so beautiful in this light - especially in black and white.

These are just beginning to bloom by our front door.

Flying Ant

While I was photographing flowers in the front yard, a friend joined us in the flower garden.

He only let me take one photo before flying away.

The hostas in our front yard have been blooming all week. I captured a few before they faded away.
