I used to hate sweating. Now I don't. I don't feel like I've worked if I don't sweat...

ATTENTION MACRO MONDAY SHOOTERS!!!

Just resharing this seeing as tomorrow is the first day with new curators!!  ;)
 
The End of the Story

Dear Macro Monday shooters...

Tonight I am officially announcing my departure from the Macro Monday team.  I've been on the team for about a year and a half and it's been so much fun!  I've gotten to meet so many new people, and enjoy their great macro art - but the time has come for me to move on.

I'm finding time a challenge these days, and I have a feeling that I need to make a few changes to what I'm doing with my photography, and perhaps find a new "focus" if you will.

Along with me, +Jeff Moreau  and +Wendy Baker  are also retiring, but we have found new curators!!

+Julie B is staying and joining her are +John Dusseault  +Marilyn Benham  and +Nina Katajamaki  - all of them regular Macro Monday posters, and excellent photographers!

I have no doubt that Macro Monday is in excellent hands, and that you will all continue to enjoy it just as much if not more!

Thank you all for being so awesome and playing with us each week!  For thinking outside the box and making progress in your efforts!  I've truly enjoyed it!!

+Jeff Moreau  you and I started this journey at the same time and we've formed an awesome friendship during the last year and a half.  I love ya and I still think you're cute!!   ;)   Thanks for being such an awesome, awesome partner..  hugs..

Now, before I get too emotional, I will tell you that next week's theme is RUST and not to forget to tag your new team of +Julie B  +John Dusseault  +Nina Katajamaki  and +Marilyn Benham !!!!

MWAH!!!

Thankful

You know....   now and again it's good to think of something we can be thankful for.  In fact, it's one of the things I most often ask people to think about at the end of my yoga classes, during relaxation period....  something to be thankful for.

I'm feeling thankful that I have friends, literally from all over the world who care.

There are a lot of people in this world and we all have something to say.  It's overwhelming at times, trying to hear it all in amongst the noise and clutter that we all can make.

But I am thankful, and grateful, that there are people who care about what I have to say - even though it's not often something important or profound.

So, thank you, friends, for just being out there, and liking, plussing and commenting on my silly little things that I say and do.  For laughing with me, and even sometimes at me (which I am totally ok with because I laugh at myself all the time)    For encouraging me in my artistic works,for being happy for me when I have an accomplishment to share.  For putting up with my Yoga and gym posts.   For accepting me for who I am, no matter how silly, or grumpy or boring I get.  

Thank you for showing me your works of art, accomplishments, and thoughts.  For trusting me with your own silly things, and for just being my friends.

Story
Tagline
I'm confused...... wait.... maybe I'm not..
Introduction
I live in the Canadian Prairies and I am surrounded by vast open spaces and big skies.  I have been shooting for about 3 years and I love the way the world looks through the lens of my camera.  I'm still learning and developing as a photographer, and hoping that I can get some amazing shots along my journey!

I am a custom picture framer, so I work with art all day every day.  I love my job, but I wish I had more time to spend on my hobby! 

Why I love photography:  For me, it's an escape. I get away from the people, the stress, the craziness, the organization that our lives become. I can go out in a foul mood, and come home feeling cleansed and refreshed. I like to be out by myself, enjoying the moment - the fresh air, the sight of an orange sky, the sun on my skin, the glimpse of an animal - and the best part is that I get to take it with me. Every photo I take has a memory attached to it. It may not be an exciting memory - but a memory none the less.

Why I am on Google+

I am not on G+ to sell my photos or become famous.  I am here because of the community.  

I love it here.  I have met amazing people and amazing photographers... and they are one in the same to me.  

 I learn from people with amazing skills every day.  People are VERY good about sharing knowledge here.    I get support when I need it, and I feel challenged to do better, to be better in both my photography and my personal life.  

I love it here.  G+ is my home away from home.  ♥

What You Can Expect If You Circle Me

I try to keep my page mostly about photography.  MOSTLY.  I will not share tons of jokes or gif's or spam you with endless links to things.  

I will post photos.  I will make the occasional blog now and again concerning photography or life in general.  I will sometimes talk about myself and my experiences, quite often demonstrating how incredibly geeky I can be.    I will share the work of others - but not all that often - once in a while, and I will share it only if I truly like it.

What you will get is my sense of humour.  My sarcasm.  My laughter.  And some chaos.  And hopefully, some photos that you will enjoy!

If you think this sounds interesting to you - circle me.  I don't bite.... very hard....

If you want me to circle you:

Don't be boring.  Talk to me.  Show me your world through your amazing photos.  Don't post gif's or that's an instant trip to the recycle bin.  Post your religious and political posts to a circle I'm not in.  Don't be a jerk, laugh with me once in a while and most of all - just show me who you are ;)



Bragging rights
I have managed to raise 2 children and be a productive person... regardless of (or maybe in spite of ) my mother not thinking that I'm very domestically talented. ;P HA! SO THERE! My work has been featured twice in the Plus One Photographers for Charity Collection, and I have been awarded an Honourable Mention in the 2014 Stark Awards
