Solace

There was a moment last week that I happened to look out a window at work and saw something worth going all the way back to my car to get my camera for.

It isn’t even anything. It’s chemical trails, a outdoor patio and an unintentionally cool reflective effect from the window but it still captured me for a moment in time.

The spectacular storm – Evergreens

I was out every day through the storm that recently swept through North America causing havoc everywhere it went. So much snow came down it was amazing…haven’t seen this much since I was a little girl.  Here’s some loveliness to share from my adventures trekking through over two feet of snowfall.

Memories and spring 


We took a family road trip last weekend to the place Dayne and I first fell in love.  Colt had asked to see it; the child has a romantic soul like I’ve never seen in one so young (never mind disabled!). It was a magical day, lovely spring sun and we had a great time remembering and sharing memories with Colt, who was still years from being on this planet, a concept he struggles to understand.  I mean, how can the world exist before you’re even in it?!   It’s a question that’s hard to answer without scaring the shit out of you 12 year old autistic son who has just had his first brush with death (and he didn’t even remember ever meeting his grandfather). 


It was lovely though.  All those memories that chained into a string of more and more until Colt tuned out completely and Dayne and I sat and marvelled at all the years and tears that we have passed together.  Such experience.  So much growth.  Love too.  Now stronger than I ever imagined one could feel.   Kinda neat…. being able to capture some of that in image.  ❤


I am lucky, alive, and free of my past and the things that haunt me when I see the world through my camera lens.  I’m just going to keep livening there…in the happy today.  

Day trip

The weather went from snow to summer this weekend and we jumped at the chance to soak up a little sunshine and took a day trip to a neighbouring, lovely little town. There is much history in this place (as much as you can get in a relatively young country like Canada) so I took advantage of the opportunity and got some shots of the crumbly buildings before they erode back into the earth. 

The mill was undoubtedly my favourite.
