A Swan Song

Good evening!

I just had to share some of my favourite pictures with you.  I know that it’s been a while so I will catch you up but first, these completely and totally awesome photos.  

Last weekend, when I was in Grand Bend, I turned from the BBQ and what did I see?  

2016-07-09 17.45.36

Swans and their cygnets!

They wandered into the backyard to pick at the weeds and grass, not entirely sure why they went for a walk, they have a pond about two blocks away.  We were quite delighted to see them for the cygnets were adorable in their ugliness and the parents fierce in their protectiveness, though they were quite relaxed here.  They stayed about ten minutes before wandering off across the street.  

This summer, my daughter decided that her dog needed to live with us full time, rather than her dad, so she could train her and try and get some of her worse behaviours under control.  It’s fallen to me to walk the dog first thing in the morning, invariably just as the sun is coming up.  

So I’ve been appreciating the walks.  I get to see things that a lot of people don’t that early in the day.  We go to the same spot, because it’s easier on me to take her out on the long leash and mostly stand there (sometimes we walk, but it’s before breakfast and before my pills).  I was watching the progress of a large thistle bloom until the municipality mowed everything down on the hillside, I listen to the birds waking up and take time to look for the little things.  Which led to two of three of my most favourite pictures ever.

This snail resting on the slab of sliced off tree.

Which the dog decided to explore…

And, thankfully, decided wasn’t food.

My third favourite picture is one I took just this evening after we dropped Girlkid off at work.  We went to the beach to take a gander at the water.  I love the beach when it’s windy and on the edge of being stormy (and when it is stormy).  The colours and movement of the water are amazing.  

The Boyfriend sat down to enjoy the view while I wandered down to the water’s edge then up the pier and around to the boardwalk.  Came up from behind him and saw a picture that had to be taken.

It was a peaceful moment.

So, those are my favourite moments from the last little while.  

And now, time to catch up!

I decided not to write July Camp, for reasons that are my own, and chose instead to edit HW2.   I’m 43 pages from the end!  That means that it will be published, barring any unforeseen circumstances, on August 1st.  

And THAT means free books! The HW1 ebook will be made available for free for three days (maybe more, depends on mood and options *laughs*).  I will probably make Lizendale for free too.  And then I will begin the research for HW4 and the slow, painful process of editing both HW3 and A Year in the life of S. Claus.  

I don’t have the plot set for HW4 and I am hoping that the research will give me some inspiration for the rest of it.  

AND I have decided to go back to school.  Hopefully, I’ll be starting in September.  I plan on being a busy girl.  The government finally acknowledged that I AM disabled (we knew that, eh?) and that relieved so much pressure in my head, released a huge cloud of depression and anger that was hanging over me that I wasn’t even wholly aware of.  

Happy days!

Time for me to go to bed.  Have a grand night and a great weekend!

Muah!

 

Brrrr

Sand and snow and water

So pretty, oh so pretty

It is storming today and looks nothing like the above photo (taken last month).  It looks more like this:

Snow Storm

Crappy. Blowy. Colder than a witch’s elbow.

I’m not entirely sure about that particular expression but with a windchill of -31*C (-23.8*F) I’ll use it.  It’s one of my Dad’s go-to expressions. *laughs*

I, who refuses to go out if it’s eight below, got dressed up and went outside to take pictures.   I put on jeans, a long sleeve tee, two pairs of socks, ski pants (snow pants?), my boots, a vest, a heavy sweater, scarf, gloves, snowmobile minutes, a hat and my coat.   I think I gained five pounds just in fabric and insulation.  

I trudged around looking for photo ops and ended up taking eighteen photos.  Not all of them made it to the folder but I wanted share what I like best with you.  Pull on a sweater and take a look!  

(I’m wearing a heavy sweater over my clothes and a large down sleeping bag as a blanket. 😀 )

First up, I gotta say, snow is hard to get focused on when you’re using a lower end camera (The Olympus D-700)  Snow is white, it reflects light [painfully] and makes it difficult for the camera to focus.  (She says like she knows.)  I may not know the mechanics (yet) but I do know that all of the pictures came out with a kind of soft focus.

So, I turned to the backyard when I stepped outside.  The first thing I saw was, well, snow.   It was on everything, everywhere.  Kind of the point to a snow storm, eh? 😉    We have a row of bicycles locked up to the trailer-cum-workshop and they were intriguing.  The shapes, the light, and the shadows all pulled me.  

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I want to ride my bicycle! (And the musical reference is)  …Not. I’d freeze to it.  

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The snow is giving me the gears. (*cackle*) See how off the focus is?  It appears out of focus, kind of makes my eyes argue with me about what’s being seen.

On the other hand, I like the contrast of light and dark,  the white and black.  I like how even the jagged edges are soft yet still menacing. The whole thing just makes me happy, even while I’m infuriated by the lack of sharpness in the focus.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

See? Lack of focus.

And yet, it looks like  the sky on a cloudy day.  It’s snow on a fence.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Like this.

The snow is so sticky that it just…. foomp…sticks to whatever like fake snow.  The side of the car, the fence, the front door and the living room windows.   It’s kind of awesome (even if it did pull power lines down).

I got heavily involved in light and shadow today (how could you not?) and I’m in love with a couple of the shots.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is at the top of the private stairs. The horizon and the lake are one.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This one is almost Yin Yang in its awesomeness. Hints of light in the dark and dark in the light.

And then there’s this…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

…my absolute favourite.

I love the texture in this one.  The spiky needles, the curves on the pine cone and the roughness of the branches in the background.  It is, as Val says, Christmas card worthy.  

And that’s it, folks.  We are still in the throes of our wee storm and I’m on tenterhooks about the power going out.  I’m off to make soup and get scraps of chicken for the cat that roams the neighbourhood.  

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and take good care of your loved ones.

Muah!

It’s That Time of Year…

…when good feelings abound.

…when family gets together.

…when food is made in abundance.

…when gaily wrapped boxes and funky or cute bags full of goodies appear.

…when depression becomes it’s strongest.

…when the poor feel their empty wallets more keenly.

…when people acquire debt they can ill afford. 

Yule

Yule.  A Google find.

To me, the Yule season is about family.  It’s about showing the love you have for the people in your life.  It’s about gratitude come to life; gratitude that is shown in the hugs, the kisses, the food and warm drinks shared.  

It’s about showing the Gods, (whatever you call them – God, Yahweh, Allah, Isis, the Oak King), your gratitude for your life.  Regardless of your beliefs, this time of year shines with family and love. 

It’s about remembering why we’re here and why we do what we do.  

I have spent some time reflecting on my own family, my obligations, my needs and my hopes and dreams.  There are some things I’d like to change, others I’d like to give sharper focus to.  

Next week, we’ll talk about changes for 2016 and plans for the future.  

This weekend, I’m going to take some pictures with the new GorillaPod Action Tripod my daughter got me!  This is the only time I wish the water was on the east side of me, so I could take night pictures of the full moon on the lake.  It’s the first one on Christmas in 38 years and there won’t be another until 2034.  It’s worth spending some time looking at it, I think.  

But then, I love the moon. 😉

I hope that your holidays see you blessed with love and light, regardless of where you are or your financial station or your health.  Remember, take some time to ease the stress in your belly.  Breathe, enjoy having your family around you.

Muah

The Eyes Have It

Hello!  Happy Saturday!

I had planned on showing you the pretty things in my life, the flora, however, something else came up.  

My inspiration for these photos came to me in the blink of an eye.

My inspiration for these photos came to me in the blink of an eye.

 

Let’s face it, anyone who knows my blog knows that I’m addicted to nature photos.  I love the blooms, the riot of colour, the shapes and details at each phase of growth.  I am editing some sixty pictures for you.  

I will be nice and not bore you to death with 60 flower photos though. *laughs*  I will only share my favourites.

But last night I was getting ready for bed and noticed that my eyes were approximately four different colours.  That led me to wanting to see if I could capture it and THAT led The Boyfriend to wanting to photograph his eye too (seen above at its creepiest).  

My first attempt at trying to take a picture of my own eye ended up like this:

I did crop it some.

I did crop it some.

 

As you can see, I’m not exactly looking at the camera.  I tried to do some colour adjustments to get my iris to show its colours but the lighting in the bathroom was hard to work with.  You can see what I meant about the colour though.

So, because the angle was wrong, (and it wasn’t as close as I wanted before), I tried again.

Caught it this time!

Caught it this time!

 

Bam!  Look at the colours! The white lights are the bathroom lights, forgot to account for them in the angles.  They did allow me to get the colours though.  

Eyes are absolutely amazing in their colour variations.  You can have brown eyes that are the colour of milk chocolate, or dark chocolate, or so dark a brown they’re almost black.  Sixteen shades of blue, fourteen shades of green.  You can have eyes with several colours in them at once or eyes that change colour (like mine).  

Peter’s eyes are blue.  They’re an amazing blue, I like them a great deal.  But! He has blue tinted contacts, tinted so that he can see them if they go in the wrong place on his eyes.  He says they can be tinted any colour, just his are blue because his eyes are blue.

With the blue contact.

With the blue contact.

 

Even with not being able to adjust the colour properly (the lighting made the picture come out tinted yellow) you can see the depth of blue the contact creates.  His eyes are the thing I was attracted to first.

Without the contact.

Without the contact.

And without the contact they’re more like denim blue.  And you can see the starburst is more pronounced.  

His eyes have a wealth of history in them.  They often hold humour and affection for the people around him.  They are full of life and surrounded by the evidence that he has lived.  (And, by the way, he is seventeen years older than me.  It doesn’t make a whit of difference, generally.)

The next time you look in the mirror, see what you can see in your peepers.  What colour are they?  How many shades of that colour are in them?  Do they tell your story?

I hope mine tell people that I’m a survivor, full of humour and affection, and that they hint at the wealth of stories in my head.

I want to hear what you see!

Have a great weekend.

Muah!  

PS  The eyes will follow you wherever you go!  Just ask Tee. 😉

Photo Bonus!

A few bonus photos today! I love them and am too excited to wait for Monday.

The cat woke me at 5:45 this morning, pissing me off, of course. Letting me sleep in for 25 minutes doesn’t cut it. lol But it afforded me the beautiful foggy dawn picture here. Later, I went out to feed the squirrels and ran into two anchor lines for this gorgeous web. Of course I had to photograph it too.

Have a great Saturday. And to my Canuck followers – have a fantastic long weekend!

Muah!

Isn't it gorgeous?  I used the despeckle filter but it still looks slightly grainy.  It seems to work though.

Spiders certainly are industrious!  One of the anchor lines was to the deck railing and the other to a chair.  Both distances were a good 6 feet.  I turned the saturation down to -80% or so and adjusted the hue just a bit.

For this one I did an auto contrast and the sharpen filter.  I adjusted the contrast and brightness a little more.  I'm quite pleased with it.

Monday Medley – Pretties

Beauty day!

Beauty day!

Good Monday morning! 

This weekend was about contradictions for me – there were some really good things and some really crappy things.  I try to focus on the good so the crappy stuff doesn’t seem so crappy.  

For instance, Friday was so lovely that we sat on the porch with our feet up reading for a spell.  We could see the lake, hear the birds and see all the leaves and flowers waking up.  

Over the last couple of weeks the weather has inspired me to wander around with my camera to capture the blooms.  I was also inspired to do that while I was in a nursery, (Westland Greenhouses for the win. They have a wonderful selection and very knowledgeable staff.  One took a 5 second look at a picture and said, “OH!  I know what that is!), but we’ll get to those pictures.  First, my own gardens – and a couple from goldi’s garden.

The crocuses were my first blooms of the season.  I have this wonderful yellow...

This grape hyacinth is what happens when you go out in the early morning and forget that the flash is on.  I think it's a rather interesting shot but hey.

We’ve also been to the beach a lot and there have been some really cool finds, like this conch shell.

It is less than two inches long.  And in 20 years of wandering that beach I've never seen another one.  Bits of oyster shells, lots of clam and mussels but never a conch.  I'm pleased with it.

This weekend, the weather was just as mixed up as the events of my weekend.  We had a couple of rainstorms and I managed to take this wonderful picture of one coming in off the lake.  

I love this picture.  I would love a print of it.  A big print.

When we went to Westland there were two plants I really liked.  I managed to take a couple of pictures.

This is the Purple Passion flower.  Apparently it's good for restless leg syndrome.  Yay Google.  GK says it's creepy as hell.

I forgot to find the name for this one and Google isn't helping - way to let me down this time!  ;)  It looked soft as silk. Also kind of creepy.  Reminds me of a jellyfish in a way.

I bought two 4

I bought two 4″ pots of this gorgeous little annual called Landmark Sunrise Rose Lantana. Apparently it’s a prolific bloomer. Plus it’s bright, sunny, very striking visually.

Today is a grey, humid, head-pounding day.  We’re waiting for storms that may or may not arrive.  The atmospheric pressure is intense.  Lots of fun. 

I am going to have lunch and then try to write and THEN I will get to some jewelry making.  I am going to make a healing talisman for someone today.  I think she needs it.  

Have a great Monday, folks. 

Muah!

Monday Medley – Wood

Good Monday morning, folks!  I know, “good Monday” seems like an oxymoron but there’s no reason for it to be.

As promised, here is the new weekly blog experiment.

I have failed big time at posting photo blogs on the weekends for quite some time now.  Part of that was because I wasn’t taking pictures worth noting.  Mostly, it’s because my weekends have been about shutting off and trying to feel better.  They are very much about spending time with The Boyfriend too.  The shutting down is about work, about doing for others, pretty much about doing anything outside of the two of us.

Sounds selfish, I suppose, but to me it’s about looking after me and looking after our relationship.

True, the spasms did break but it didn’t last long.  The only saving grace has been the yoga; it’s prevented the new round from being as bad as the first, so far.  However, lately, days like Friday, where my legs collapsed from under me again, and Saturday, when I spent the day in a fog of pain, barely able to walk, have been happening more and more.  Again.

Monday Medley is about photography.  It’s about the things I’ve found interesting – the subjects, the angles, the shadows and light, the lines – in the last week or so.  And while I do have a backlog of photos, we’re going to start this new experiment with photos from the last two weeks.

This week the theme is wood.  We spent a weekend clearing out dead branches from the bushes and some of the trees a couple of weeks ago.  We found some very interesting (to us, *laughs*) pieces of wood.  Gnarly bits of gnarled wood.  

The Boyfriend did an awesome thing with some of that wood that is a whole other post – he custom made me a cane.  It’s gorgeous.  It’s a prototype, an experiment, he says, but I adore it.  But that’s a show-and-tell for another day.

For now, the other bits we found and some of what he has done with it.  

After this, I am going to continue trying to get to know James, the new computer (an ASUS N551jk 15.6″) , and see if I can get some writing done.  James is still quite a lot toxic and is making me a little brain dead, so we’ll see.

On to the photos! 

A piece of driftwood I found on the beach.  I took the picture with the Rich Format on my camera then used Photoshop to enhance the colours.  I love the textures here.  I love birch trees for that.  They're always interesting to look at.  The fact that the bark is hanging on, still wrapped around the branch, even as the thing is being hollowed out strikes me as tenacious. Especially for a dead thing. ;)

We are not sure what this is.  It currently has a pale green bloom of some sort pushing out from the red.  Do any of you know what it is?  Do share, please.  It kind of popped up in the garden.

This one just had to be put in black & white so that the colours didn't distract from the lines.    I really like the patterns here.

This one strikes me as Nature's way of throwing her femininity in your face.   The lines and curves are very sensual.

Oh! By the Way…

This week marks my third year anniversary with WordPress!

This blog will be number 277 and I have 253 blog followers.  

I have decided, in order to mark the occasion, that when I hit 300 followers, I will do a giveaway.  

Prizes will be announced closer to the time. 

Mostly because I still have to figure them out.  They will, however, definitely include autographed books.

Hopefully there will be more entrants than last time!  

I have vast amounts of affection for you guys.  And, in honour of the three years, I will be putting HW1 AND Lizendale up on Amazon and Kindle in the next week.  

Muah!

Good morning!

It’s Spring Break here for my daughter so I am taking a long weekend at the cottage with The Boyfriend.  That means this photoblog still falls in the range of ‘weekend’ for me. 😉

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Like this one. It’s a macro shot of Egyptian chamomile tea, after it’s been steeped

Today I want to share some photos I took with the new camera.  I’ve had to carefully weed out the ones taken with my Olympus.  

No matter how much I want to share them, this blog is for the phone camera.

But wait!  First!  I’m so excited!  Look! (Yeah…okay, that’s a lot of exclamation points.  Sue me. 😉 )

My summer office is thawing!

My summer office is thawing!

Isn’t that great?   The snow is totally gone this morning.  I’m thrilled.  

Okay, back to the job at hand.  We got our new phones at the beginning of the month.  Samsung S4s.  There are positives and negatives but I’m not about reviewing the phone.  I AM interested in the camera; that I will review (ish) as I go.

Here are the specs:

Primary: 13 MP, 4128 x 3096 pixels, autofocus, LED flash
Features: Dual Shot, Simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, touch focus, face/smile detection, HDR
Video: 1080p@30fps, dual-video rec.

(found on gsmarena.com. For full phone specs, check them out)

The pictures are larger and better quality that from my S3, overall.  The biggest difference that I have noticed, (besides the ability to take image in image shots), is the settings, the ability to change how you adjust the colour etc.  You cannot manually change the ISO or WB, for instance.  You have settings like Auto, Drama, Best Face, Sports and Night, and others. 

Pressing the gear symbol, (options, settings, whatever), gives you options like:

  • turning the flash on and off,
  • turning the auto-night adjustment on and off (it will automatically adjust for low light settings) 
  • turning voice control on and off, (Oh, I am so going to have to play with that),
  • options for recording mode, and
  • auto sharing options (on, off, where to)

I dislike that all the settings are automatic.  

I am interested in playing with settings like Drama and Sports.  In Drama, it takes a series of shots and then stitches the best ones together to form a dramatic photo.  Sports allows for photos of fast moving objects.

I did find a setting for “Animated photo”.  I thought that was odd.  When I was playing with the camera I happened to be making Man Soup for supper.  After I dished it up I took a photo using this setting.  The picture won’t share to Facebook because it’s too big and not the right format, even though it labels itself as a .gif in my files.  Let’s see if it works here.

Steamy Man Soup!  And an example of an animated photo.

Pretty cool, right? 😀  (It is slowing my ability to do things wayyyyyy down though.)

The Auto setting takes some pretty sharp photos. 

This is one of the first pictures I took.  Birch  against the blue sky.  THe sharp lines and crisp colours are awesome.

Terror looks amazing.  You can see all the colours that make him such a gorgeous feline.  Plus, you know, his annoyance that I made him stand there when all he wanted to do was sniff stuff.

There is a Rich Tone (HDR) format too.  

I'm not sure I like that it turned the sunlight into speckles but the ice looks great.

I did manage to catch a drop.  It's right there in the middle.

I haven’t had a group of people to photograph to try things like the Best Face and Beauty Face settings.  I did try Best Photo but basically it’s on Auto and takes a fast series of pictures so you can choose the best ones to save.  

We were driving home (to my house) last Sunday at sunset and I decided to try and capture it while we were driving.

It didn't really go all that well.  I don't like the colours, it wasn't that yellow.  And even when we stopped to take the photos, it wasn't that great.

It does, however, take lovely macro shots.  Lots of details come through.

Like here, with this fallen icicle.  You can see the striations in the ice and the refraction of the snow behind it.

And here with a cross cut of the core of my breakfast.  This one is the apple core, though I did take one of the pear, I think I'll put it up on Instagram instead.  (I really need to start using it more, Instagram that is)

 Over all, this camera is pretty easy to use and, being contrary as I can be, I don’t think I like it for that.  I have been trying to learn about ISO and WB and everything else it takes to take a good picture.  

For quality, I think this one surpasses my S3’s camera  by a long shot.  There isn’t a lot of tweaking to be done to make them look the way I want them to.  The Auto setting does a pretty damn good job.  

I am sitting outside right now, wrapped up in a coat and a blanket with another coat under my ass, so I thought I’d leave you with a parting shot.  

It’s time to do some writing in HW3 so I can get the book done and do another read through of HW2.  My books are going to be published again, I will deal with the hassle.  I’m never going to get anywhere, never going to see any success with my manuscripts hiding in my Work folder. 

Have a lovely day, even if it is Monday.

Muah!

It is awfully bright out, pardon the squinting. ;)  This is the photo in photo.  Strange, eh?

Look at me being all omniscient.  It is awfully bright out, pardon the squinting. 😉 This is the photo in photo. Strange, eh?

My website is live and it is smokin’ hot!

Check it out.

 

http://catherinebowman.ca

It is phenomenal.  So totally gorgeous.  The excerpt pages are a little hard to read because of the font colour but there were few options and that, overall, seemed to be the best one. The fonts on the character pages may get lightened up a bit too.  

I am literally so happy I’m in tears.  

Something monumental this way comes.

And I can’t wait.

Check out the link and let me know what you think!

Muah!
