Blurred Perspective.

I have been loving the colors of Autumn that are on display right now. The yellows, the oranges and especially the reds. I loved the way the light shone on the leaves. It was golden light, that hour of the evening where the magic happens. My shutter speed was high and caught the leaves so that the huge wind we were having this day was not blowing at all. 
I kind of missed the wind though and the effect of movement and the blur that comes with that, so I put the blur back! Kind of like it!

A Scavenger Hunt

Meet Molly, my sister's Maltese dog. She is constantly watching me, I think wanting to be picked up!
We spent the day at Echodale, shuffling through the leaves that have fallen. It's one of my favorite things to do in the Fall. When we lived in BC it was very hard to do that as it rained all the time, the leaves were wet and soggy all the time. Here they are dry and crisp and so fun to shuffle through!

First World Problem
The problem here is the car parked in the parking area somehow made itself invisible when I took this photo. Somehow the rule of checking out the background for annoying things that ruin your otherwise perfect shot didn't happen this time!
And peaceful, Love visiting this Park. It is always different and always the same. If you know what I mean!
I love this shot of the shadows falling gently over the leafy carpet. 
Just waiting for picnic time. 

A Good Day
A great day is shuffling through crisp crunching leaves, throwing handfuls of dry leaves into the breeze and watching them fly through the air! A good day is going for a walk along paths by the lake, seeing the gorgeous yellows, oranges and reds of colour, feeling the breeze through your hair, visiting with family while walking. 

Everyday is a good day, you could say the best day of my life, it is what I have right this moment, the only day and its the best!!

My Brand New Niece

My brand new niece Kenedee, was born Friday evening, weighing in at 7lb 8oz and 21 inches. Kenedee already knows how to make people wait, she made us wait an extra 8 days before making her entrance. 
Here my sister's dog Molly is quite curious about the baby. My sister is the proud first time Grandma!

Kenedee is trying to wake up here, she was sleeping soundly for a good hour before. 

She is beautiful and perfect. And I am sure she is going to be spoiled!

Its been an exciting week here. I finally got rid of my crutches last week, which is a huge step in recovery, pardon the pun! A few flare ups in pain but so far its all good. So nice to be free of those crutches. 
 My brother Brian was out for a visit from his home town of Victoria. He was here for a week. We took him to the airport today for his flight home. The week's visit went by so fast, its hard to believe sometimes how fast time flies!
And my brand new Niece Kenedee was born yesterday! She kept everyone waiting a week past due date and finally made her entrance yesterday evening.  Hubby and I went up to the hospital today after dropping Brian off at the airport to finally meet this little one!
And almost overnight Autumn has arrived. Fall colours are everywhere. These few pictures were taken outside of the airport terminal. One thing about chain link fences that always seem to attract my eye is all the things that get caught in the links. Things that should of moved on long ago but just seems to stick around. We all have moments like that, we can't seem to let some things go.

There are some moments that we should keep tucked away forever as well. 
I will keep that moment I first laid eyes on my niece Kenedee, saw that little shock of dark hair on her little head, her pink skin, the tiny folds under her neck, her little ears. Her beautiful blue eyes. I won't get that moment again,  and I will treasure that little gift!

I'll have some photos in later posts of her, come back later and check it out!

Today's Flowers!

How can a bouquet of flowers not make you smile!!

Fall is upon us now and I am looking forward to getting out and taking in the cool days and  the autumn colors  of the season. On a different cool note, my brother is arriving tomorrow from Victoria for a week's visit. We are going to be showing him the sites!!
