Mom's Daisies

I shot this a while back in my parents yard. Once I finish posting some of my favorite photos of the past, I promise to post more recent photos. I still have older photos that I will post every once in a while too!

Siberian Tiger

This big guy was shot (with my camera) at the Toronto Zoo.

Fishing at Dawn

This photo was taken a few years ago at a friends cottage in northern Ontario, just outside Algonquin Park. It was shot with my first digital camera I bought while working in Japan back in 1999, an Olympus 3.2 megapixal camera. The one thing I always complained about with this point & shoot was all the shots I missed because the frame capture was so slow. So I found that I was restricting my photos to mostly stills or almost no movement to try to capture the moment. I sometimes think I still find myself restricting those shots out of habit, one perhaps I will try to break in the new year.

Boathouses at Dawn

I'm usually not much of a morning person but on the rare occasion I have been known to make an exception . This was one of those mornings. I was staying at a bed & breakfast in a small town at Lake Erie in Ontario back in 2005 and was awake almost before the birds. So I took advantage of the sleepiness of a quiet Sunday morning and took a stroll down to the docks in the center of town and snapped this photo.
