Merry Christmas to All!!

I hope you all have a GREAT Christmas Holiday....Here is a picture I took of my new snowman---a cute decoration I received from my friend Lorrie! I thought it was perfect to be my Christmas greeting this year!

Here are some shots of a cute Pug, named Gizmo. Gizmo lives in Ottawa and is owned by Sheena and Steve. We are lucky that we usually get to see him when we visit Ottawa. He so cute and always looks like he's happy!

B & W Architectural Shots

Hello Everyone!

Today for your viewing pleasure are some shots I had to do for an assignment for my photography course...Yep, black and white pictures! I'm not a big fan of black and white photography, for my own shots anyway, but I do like other's Ansel Adams for one! Anyway, I was trying to think what would look good in black and white and thought that something "old" would suffice, so both of these fit the the way, I submitted the church picture for my assignment and got 10 out of 10!!!

Here are shots of Christ Church on Tyendinaga Territory and a shot of a barn on the outskirts of Deseronto.

Furry Feline Friends!

Here are some shots of our furry friends in Ottawa. These guys are called Bailey (1st pic) and Mickey (2nd) and are owned by Anne and Fred. We went down for a long-overdue visit last weekend and I love trying to get good shots of them..sometime they are willing models and other times, not so much! Oh well, I had fun!

Farm Cuties!

Here are some cute horses from the farm. Keturah and I went to the Royal Winter Fair and Horse Show on Friday and saw a lot of awesome horses, among other animals as well as some championship jumpers! We had a long tiring day, but it was worth it and I can't wait to go next year!

Here are: Casey, Jerome, Logan, Nikki and BJ hanging out around the farm!

For the Birds....

Here are today's offerings...yep, some birds. Kevin and I went hiking on Amherst Island in the area called the "Owl Woods". Of course, we didn't see any owls...well, we think we saw a couple, flying around, but none close enough to shoot. I did get some good shots of the birds we did see, which were:

1st Pic-chickadee with a seed in his beak on Kevin's hand
2nd Pic-woodpecker up in the tree (above a bird feeder)
3rd Pic-nuthatch with a seed in his beak on the bird feeder

Keturah and Arwen

I have finally picked a template for my blog that I'm going to keep for awhile. I did some minor updating to it...Unfortunately, did not save my last layout, so not sure if I am missing some information or not....Let me know if you see any problems or I'm missing vital information!

Here are some shots of Keturah and the cute pony she's been riding the last couple of weeks, named Arwen. She can be stubborn, but she made her go over the jumps eventually!

On another "horse" note, Keturah and I will be going to the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto on Friday. We are also going to the Horse Show that evening too, so that should be fun...Unfortunately, I can't take pictures there, but I'll let you know how it goes!

Enjoy the pics!

Here are some pics of the family all dressed up for Halloween.

1st pic-Keturah as a Devil Fairy
2nd pic-Cousin Andrew as a Glow-in-the-Dark Skeleton
3rd pic-Andrew and Keturah
4th pic-Brooke as a BumbleBee

On another note, you may have noticed a different format for my blog...Yep, I thought it was time for a change, so I picked a different template...not sure if I like it or not as purple is not one of my favourite colours, but I'll give it a try...leave a comment if you like it or not...If I get some time to play around, I may keep the format, but change the colours to red or orange or something I like better! lol

Nikki and Keturah

Here are some shots of Keturah and her cute little steed, Nikki. These were shot last week. Keturah rode Arwin this week and I didn't get any good pics of them together because it was raining and they rode in the new barn, which means dark pictures!

1st shot-Nikki waiting to ride
2nd & 3rd shots-Keturah and Nikki during the lesson

I'll add some Halloween Pictures next!

Giddy Up!

Keturah finally got back to riding lessons yesterday. Yep, when it was a very rainy day! Luckily (for them) they rode in the new arena, so stayed nice and dry, but my photos of her were pretty crappy due to the lighting in the arena...I guess I'll have to bring my bigger flash, but then I'll probably scare all the horses then! SIGH...

Here are some friendly horses I shot in and around the farm:

1st-Thunder, waiting to ride
2nd-RV, wanting to come in from the rain I think
3rd-Henry, just hanging out in the new arena stalls

Bowmanville Zoo

Sorry for not posting in over a week..Time flies when you are having fun! The girls got back to school without a hitch, which was good. I've started a photography course, so have been busy reading and doing assignments for that as well as starting my Christmas cards too. This weekend we headed to Peterborough to the Lang Pioneer Village and Peterborough Zoo, so I will try to post some of those shots later this week too!

Here are some more shots of animals from the Bowmanville Zoo, where we went a couple of weeks ago!

Pretty Birds!

Today we headed to Bowmanville Zoo and Jungle Cat World as the weather was supposed to be nice (compared to rain tomorrow)! It started "spitting" on our way home.

Anyway, here are some macaws that I shot at Bowmanville Zoo. We hadn't been there in a couple of years, so it was nice to get back! I got a few good shots of animals today. Yeah!
