Introducing the i and the new eye.


218:365 Contrast 1


219:365 Contrast 2


220:365 By way of contrast, here is the first photo I've uploaded from my iPhone. Also a contrast: ringlets on a girl with poker-straight hair.

OK, bear with me. I need to share 3 pictures from Saturday. This from the Tim Horton's in Sackville, NB:

the cat that swallowed the canary

The cat that swallowed the canary--or the tim-bit.

almost 221:365

Lost in a book at Woozles bookstore in Halifax--as shot by my brand-spanking new 50mm 1.4 lens. I am punch drunk with lens happiness. To whit:


221:365 At the hotel


222:365 I stumbled upon this dirty and battered fellow stuffed into the fence rails along the Halifax Public Gardens. He was missing an eye on the other side of his face. Too bad the photos from that angle weren't quite as good.


223:365 A different kind of contrast. Spring break means that her dad was home for an evening and could take part in the bedtime rituals.

Please bear with me again. There are 4 shots from today because the squirrel was being so damn cooperative. You can help me decide which should be the picture of the day.

a quiet snack

texture galore

eating ice

Yes, he's eating a handful of ice.



Hooray, I've replaced, nay upgraded, my 50mm lens. I love it. I love it. I love it. And because I love it, I want to push my limits this week. The prompt: abstract.


  1. I love this week's pictures! Beautiful, Sue! Ringlets indeed, very lovely. Those white tigers, my 6yo has one (name: Tigey). Tigey goes with us everywhere. EVERYWHERE.

  2. i like 'em all -- but i can't get past the love on l.'s face in the tub pic. so dear.

  3. of the squirrel pics., i like the third.

  4. I like the 3rd squirrel pic, reminds me of KayTar and how she loves snow, just for the munching.

    My faves are the one of M sleeping and in the tub!

  5. The second one - the going down the tree like a streak shot. Nice one!
    Love the bear. Love the upset elephant.
    New lens = nirvana.

    I haven't taken a shot all week. Will recoup the loss. I hope.

  6. Wracking my brain - it wasn't it her birthday? That's earlier. Just vacation, then?

    Cute hoodie, beautiful girl. The one of her sleeping with the dolls? Gasp.

    My girl has poker straight hair and has finally started to understand that when we go for a cut, she can't ask the stylist to cut it "curly."

    I like the sunlight on the tree, but my favorite shot of the squirrel is #4. No particular reason, though I think it reminds me of how my dogs look from behind when they look out the window.

  7. Oh, and congratulations on your new lens! I am so glad you're enjoying it.
