Photo and Film A Day

Two friends, one blog, a year long photography adventure
So this is my wedding ring spinning on the table like you would spin a spin top. I envisioned this picture coming out a lot better than what it did. Again, part of the process I guess.

The theme this week is motion, and well here’s the motion of the ocean.

New theme this week is ‘motion’. I took about 100 photos today while Janet was driving to try and capture some essence of motion. Tough to do with the lighting today, not overly pleased, but this was the best one of the lot. Most weeks I have at least one photo idea, for this week I have none, so it’ll be a lot of thought going into the pictures (I hope) in the days ahead.

This is my good friend, Laura. Laura and Mark are having a baby in May, and I wanted to showcase the beauty of pregnancy and life. When I asked Laura if she would be willing to model for me she jumped at it. We took a bunch and this is my fav, I think because of all the lines. Thanks, Laura and Mark

So I worked last night, and instead of doing the responsible thing of going home to sleep right away, I went downtown for Paddy’s Day breakfast with a great group of friends! There was also live music, Mark Manning in this guys name, I never heard of him before, but he played some David Francey so he is good in my books.

We brought Nan some strawberry ice cream tonight, she loved it. Big thanks to Melissa for grabbing my camera and snapping some shots while I was helping Nan.

Non-theme picture happens to fall on my day to work. Shocker! Ice is melting so I am trying to capture some cool pictures, in the 2 minutes I was outside this is the best I could do.

Aunt Romana says goodnight to Nanny after another long day in St. Clare’s. The queen is still laughing and asking how everyone else is doing. She is a portrait of strength, of faith. She turns 93 on Wednesday.

I wanted to try this during our “selfie” week, but I didn’t find the time. I thought it made for a neat portrait concept. Is it perfect? By no means no. Looking at it I can see a bunch of things I would change, but it is the effort and concept of this attempt that is important. One of my favourite thus far merely for the attempt and again trying new things.

Dan challenged Chris to an arm wrestle today, I felt obligated to capture the moment. I think my new name for Dan might be “Crazy Eyes” haha.

My buddy Chris had a birthday the other day but none of us realized until after the fact. Him, Matt, and Jeff (off screen right) when out for a bight and a few wobbly pops to celebrate. When I got off work at 10:30 I went down to visit them, needless to say they were good and pickled.

Trying different styles of photography, not a fan of this, I can do better. Here is Janet and her pretty eyes, she loves eye makeup, while this picture doesn’t capture it, I will try to attempt a better picture later in the week!

Nan is ill, they’re not really sure what’s wrong with her. It started as a rash on her leg they thought was an infection. She’s always sleeping but has moments of clarity when she wakes up, laughing at our bad jokes. She’s the head elephant, and she’ll be 93 on March 19. She’s a strong old bird.
