Flowers Pt. 2

Sorry for not posting last weekend...I babysat my cute little 3 year old neice last Saturday, went and saw Footloose with Brooke and on Sunday and Monday (the PA day), the girls and I went shopping in Watertown and Syracuse, so I had NO time.

EXCITING NEWS: This past week has seen me getting ready for something exciting! My friend and fellow photographer, Melissa and I are opening a website to sell our photos...Well, she's doing a lot of the website work and I've been busy uploading my photos, wish it were as easy as that sounds!

The Process: I always enhance the lighting on my photos as the camera doesn't always get it right, or I have it set for the wrong white balance! After that, I have to resize it and save it and then resize it for thumbnail size and save it again! Then I make a zip file for each one and then I can upload it to the site! Whew, no wonder I'm so tired today--that and I've been working for about 5 hrs today! The time consuming part is finding certain photos--when I'm searching for a certain one, I question why I needed to take so many pictures!! URGH!

Check back next week (around November 1st) and I will post the URL, so you can all check out the website. We'll announce it on Facebook too!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Here are some more flower photos from PEI! Enjoy!

Flowers from PEI

Hello Everyone! Today for your viewing pleasure, I have some flower pictures that I took during our travels down east. These were all taken at the Bottlehouse attraction when we were there...They have an awesome garden! Sorry a lot of these are the same colour--can you tell what my favourite flower colour is?

Anyway, I don't know the names of all these as I'm definitely not a gardener, so I hope you enjoy them all the same!

More Scenes of PEI

Here are a few more scenic shots taken when we were out and about around PEI. Yep, we drove ALL around the whole province...it is one of the smallest ones! We saw a lot of great sights along the way. You could drive from one end of the province in less than 1 hr. But we like stopping a lot and torturing our kids to look at things they wouldn't get to see in Ontario, like potato museums, lighthouses, etc! They moaned and groaned a bit, but I think they enjoyed it!

1st & 2nd Pic-was taken between Cavendish and Kensington as we were out driving..the sky looks a bit dark as this was taken right before a storm came in
3rd Pic-taken by the Cape Egmont Lighthouse...Just this protrusion of sand sticking out into the water with this "hole in the wall"--reminds me of the one on Grand Manan Island
4th Pic-North Cape Wind Energy Centre---pretty cool sight with all the windmills and museum. This is the most Northern Point of PEI
5th Pic-Tignish Beach-it seemed to go on for miles
6th Pic-West Point Harbour--the tide was really low here (awesome light though)
