WordPress Photo Challenge: Winter

I have to admit that this photo was taken over a year ago.  The Lower Mainland of British Columbia has not seen winter (the WordPress Photo Challenge this week) yet – I think we had a snowfall back in November, but the snow lasted all of twelve hours.

I chose to go back to a photo that I never did process, but that was more due to the fact that I wasn’t very familiar with what Photoshop could do, nor with what I could do with it.

I hope you like it.

Photo Friday: Best of 2011

It’s hard to pick a photo out of the past year that meets the challenge of “Best of 2011“.  I scoured my old files and all of the photos that I’ve posted for the past year and I think I’ve got a few possibles.

If there’s one of these you like better than the rest, please let me know.  I’ve had a heck of a time deciding between them.

I do find it interesting that I’ve chosen three photos that are all portrait orientation.  Hmm…I should take that into consideration as I enter the second year of posting every day.

My lake home…I wish…or not.

Actually, I’m not sure I wish I had one of these “cabins”.  I have a tough enough time keeping up my yard and house that I live in, let alone trying to keep up a home away from home.  The way my mind works, if I own a house at the lake, I’m going to live in that house.  If I own a house in the suburbs (I do), then I’m going to live in that house.  I’ve never really understood the “need” to have two houses.

Either way, these lake houses made a nice photo, so I’m just going to enjoy view.

New recipes…Yay!

My wife and kids gave me the book on top of the stack for Christmas.  I’m excited about trying some of the recipes.  They look really good.  All I need is a food processor and a new life in the kitchen will start.

Is there anyone else who’s excited about new recipes?  Or Jamie Oliver?  Or Jamie Oliver’s recipes?

Canadian swimmers…in formation.

This is, in fact, how all Canadians swim.  You should see us at the swimming pool.  It’s hilariously cute.  It is a Canadian telepathic thing.  Weird, I know, but fun.
