Photo Dump

There is so much beauty, and there are so many interesting things all around us; often in the most ordinary ways. All you have to do is slow down and take a look. That is one of the things that photography helps you to do. And one of the things I love most about it.

Here is another round of ordinary moments in my life...

A secret garden up ahead.

Is it just me, or does it look like this goat is laughing?

Nom nom nom...

Waiting for the train? Or waiting for his wife to finish taking photos? Me thinks it's the latter...

My husband preparing to do a wheelie on his motorcycle that he treated himself to last year.
He's been riding one since his teen years. It's one of the things I find sexy about him.

Photographing old barns is one of my favourite things.


The most amazing man in the world peeking into an abandoned building.
We did go inside to take photos, but not through this opening.

Beautifully rusty.

This can be translated in such a morbid way...

Driftwood...er...drifting wood.

Why cut the sweet 16 birthday cake when you can stab it?

A long and flexible neck comes in handy for those hard to reach places.

A rusty lock and chain up close.

Make it a great day, everyone!

    1. It's fun adding captions. Gives my readers an idea of what I'm thinking when I'm snapping the photos.
