Thursdays At Grandmas

These little girls spend most Thursdays at our home. We always have a list of activities on the go and the camera is always out. I have scads of "Thursday Photos", so I though I would post weekly in an effort to archive these precious times together. Perhaps in 30 years one of them will find Grandma's old blog. :)

Yesterday it was baking, piano and general horsing around in the living room although we did spend some time building a wooden castle in the basement. I didn't get a photo of it because 'someone' knocked it down too soon. arrghhh - little sisters!!

 I love their new aprons! 
And so do they!
Here we are - ingredients are all measured and ready to go! 

Its like magic

 Oatmeal cookie dough is the best! 

 Eva is quite the helper on the kitchen! 
And boy did we make a grand mess!!

I am in love with this photo of Norah. The girls love playing the piano. 
This was my grandpa's piano - Eva and Norah's great, great grandfather's piano.
 He would be blessed beyond measure to know these little girls so enjoy sitting at his piano. 

we tuckered this little one out.

How I Became a Photographer

It all started with this guy!

Well, it probably started with scrapbooking. It was there I started to appreciate a good photo for my pages so I bought my Olympus DSLR E500.

I had no idea how to use it. Shoot in manual? Where is manual?

I took it up to Kenora Ontario summer 2005. One early morning son Mark and I got up before sunrise and headed up to Blueberry Hill to shoot the sunrise. Mark had a Canon Rebel

It was at sunrise July 23rd that Mark explained exposure and shutter speed to me. I took this photo of him that morning. I think he is saying "Mom, you don't know how to read your exposure?? "

It was a eureka moment and I haven't stopped learning or loving photography since that day.

I can't believe that was 10 years ago! And about $20,000 worth of equipment later I love it more then ever.

Now I teach Mark stuff. :)

Missing These Days

1992 - missing the days when all my little ones were around me.
And wishing I had taken more photos back then.

St Augustine Florida

Nothing like a photobook sale to get me to sort thru 1027 photos, pick the best, edit them to perfection and upload them. I was up until after midnight last night,  but it is done and the book is ordered.
All my favourite St Augustine photos are in a beautiful 10x10 coffee table book and will be here by Dec 2nd!

Just double click on the bottom right page and the book will open for you. :) There are two white pages at the front - just keep clicking.

Loving Fall

I don't have a lot of spare time but what I do have I spend taking a new on line course in Photoshop.

This took about 30 minutes.
