For 20+ years I’ve hunted crocuses just south of where I live. Thru the years I’ve had different 4 legged companions. This year I had a new companion. Chase accompanied me on my journery. My heart ached for the ones that were there but only in memory. Life goes on. Another change is I decided to take artistic shots. I carried my lensbaby lens with various optics. I hope you enjoy the images I was able to create. Click on the image and it will enlarge, then arrow thru the gallerymusing on the arrows on either side.
As Easter is time to be thankful and rejoice. I am thankful for the dogs that shared their lives with me. Thankful for the willing models they were for this photographer. Some were just naturals and the others learned how to behave when the camera travelled with us and that was most of the time on our walks. Now I have two new ones (15 months old) and they are coming along nicely. The handsome fellow posing for the Easter card is Tux. He came to us as a 3 or 4 year old rescue. He fit into life with the photographer as if he’d been special requested. As with ALL my models and friends, he is truly missed.
There is light at the end of the tunnel! Travelling thru one of the many tunnels in the Canadian Rockies. Four girls on an adventure. Was fantastic.
I was looking for an image, from among many and I found a folder names Play 2014. Of course I had to see what gems it held. And I wasn’t disappointed. I don’t know when or why my creativity or ability to take fun shots ended but I haven’t created anything like this for a long time. I hope they bring a smile to your face. I know they did mine. Enjoy!

I took an online photography class on pet photography using natural light. My model for this class was Chase, a 13 month old Belgian Malinois. He was a very willing model. Here are the photos I submitted for the final project. Josie, Chases sister crashed the photo session and is in one of the shots.
I created a new website for the Saskatchewan Team Roping Association. The website is call Team Roping Saskatchewan. This is the URL https://teamropingsaskatchewan.ca/ If you do a search for Team Roping Saskatchewan, Google can’t find it. Hopefully the problem with be resovled soon.
Where I live, Saskatchewan, we have been having wonderful mild weather. For this time of year. Last week we had a good old fashion storm. Haven’t seen one like this for a long time. High winds, blowing snow, power outages. When morning came it was a brand new world, covered in snow, creating a winter wonderland. Mild tempetures still holding enabling The Boy and I to get out and explore. Here is some of what we saw.
In winter in my area, you never know what awaits you when you awake. Sky could be blue weather and cold. Visibility could be zero due to blowing snow when you look out. One morning, was clear and when I looked at the vehicles, I saw to my delight that Jack Frost the painter had visited. Each window had different etchings. Some reminded my of fine crystal. I’m sharing a few of the designs that I was able to photograph. Enjoy.
