Roses are Red

I’m a sucker for roses…! I’m glad to have this beautiful bouquet to brighten my apartment while winter continues to reign outside – it takes a lot to get me to willingly go outside these days!

How do you keep the winter blues away?

Fall Colours

I can’t get over Fall in Quebec! Everywhere I look right now is a stunning display of fiery colours, all blended together in a perfect combination. It makes me want to go on endless walks with my camera and pick leaves like bouquets of flowers…

It’s starting to get cooler, and the frost is starting to creep in, but I hope we have a few more weeks of these magnificent views before winter arrives!

Out and About

A few shots from a walk around the neighbourhood, before the leaves entirely change colour.

Sometimes, I get the urge to go for a walk with my camera. I don’t have a particular place or thing in mind, I just have a creative itch that I want to scratch. Sometimes when I go out with my camera I find oodles of things that I want to photograph. This time, it was not so. This time, I wandered far longer than I thought I would, looking for something beautiful or interesting to capture. It’s a hard time of year – there are very few flowers and the leaves haven’t quite started changing. Mostly, things look kind of dead or in the process of dying. Not exactly what I wanted to photograph… But then, this kind of walk forced me to look carefully and take my time. Nothing was jumping out at me or stopping me in my tracks, so it meant I had to slow down and change my expectations. It turned out to be a gratifying experience, even though it wasn’t what I was expecting. I guess you never know what will come up when you go out for a walk with your camera.

Summer’s End

It was a long hot summer…

 

And now… the weather is definitely cooling down. The days are getting shorter. Flowers are harder to find.

This can only mean one thing: Fall is here! Fall is my favourite season. It’s a combination of back to school, cozy sweaters, beautiful colours as the leaves change, and deliciously warm drinks and baking!
