120 of 365 Guitar

David's guitar.
I love listening to my sweetheart play his guitar.  I love his soft accountant hands.
I just love him!!

...and this is the last music photo.
First time I have stuck with a theme for the whole week.

118 of 365 Alto Recorder

Paul's Alto Recorder
It would have been much more appropriate to have the piano or the guitar for Paul's instrument, but I have done the piano and I am saving the guitar shot for Dave. Paul also played the drums.... and probably another instrument that is not coming to mind at this moment :)
...but here is his Alto Recorder

113 of 365 Buds

Yes there are signs in my backyard that spring is trying really hard to arrive. My tamarack has some teeny buds.

112 of 365 Saturday Evening

It's Saturday evening and that means the gang is here for Bible study. David casually mentions that the toilet handle in the downstairs bathroom is broken. Before you know it the guys are off to Rona to get parts. There are three of them in there trying to figure out how to fix it as I take this photo. I am waiting for the gals to arrive.... My husband, the accountant made sure the duct tape was available- just in case. :) We did have an enjoyable evening - covered about 6 verses in Romans... and ate cheesecake. Loving the body of Christ!

111 of 365 Yorkton Engagement

Spent a fantastic afternoon at an old saloon in the middle of nowhere - well some place 20 minutes south of Melville. I HAVE to go back. This place is incredible.
Celeste and Fred are getting married and it promises to be one big party. This shoot at the Horseshoe Saloon was just the warm up to an engagement shin dig tonight followed by a wedding on their ranch next August. And I get to photograph it all!!

Here is my pick of the day but it was hard to choose. Check the regular blog for more pics.

I calibrated all my lenses today. Yeah. Super focus!

Wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be with this little gadget from datacolor

105 of 365 In Memory of Dad

My Dad died a year ago today. I miss him.
A friend gave me this orchid when Dad died. It bloomed for a month after then stopped blooming and showed nothing for 8 months. In late January of this year it sent forth 5 beautiful blooms. I was hoping it would keep those blooms until today. And it has.

Playing with my new lens and depth of field - or a wide open lens.
That's all.

101 of 365 David's Office

I have been spending numerous hours on the computer working on photos - specifically slideshows... so not out getting a 365 photo. But I had to drop David at his office so I though I would get a photo of him where he spends most of his waking hours.

100 of 265 Light

They say photography is all about lighting..... Today I am loving all that the sun is doing through my blinds and this lamp.

99 of 365 On the Road Again

Praying you all had a blessed Easter weekend with family and loved ones. He is Risen!
We headed back to Yorkton this afternoon and soon discovered the remnants of a winter storm that hit there yesterday. It was pretty icy on the second half of our 3.5 hour trip.

So what do you think?
Have we got a more professional look for April?

96 of 365 Markus

Markus stopped by tonight with his dad - the men had church business to figure out. So Markus and I sat on the front steps and I took photos of Markus making silly faces. I commented that I thought he had 100 teeth. He didn't think so!
He counted to make sure and let me know there were 22 of them. :)

Love those intensely blue eyes!

95 of 365 Good Neighbours

About every 2 months we get together with our neighbours on a week night. We are both busy on the weekends with family, so when we can swing it, we come home from work, throw a bunch of appetizers in the oven, grab the cheese, some veggies and the wine and get together to catch up on life. We call it an evening by 8:30 because we all have to work the next day. It's a great arrangement.

My plan was to take a photo before all the goodies disappeared... but I kind of forgot....

Norah looks more and more like Allison every day AND her eyes are greyish.... they may be blue. :)

93 of 365 Quiet Evening

We have been busy lately. Just sitting on the couch, watching an episode of Hogan's Hero's and sharing some wine is a good way to end the day. Anyone remember Hogan's Hero's?
