Photography 101: Moment – Cheri reminds us that… Our lives are made up of big events and tiny moments. Ultimately, life is fleeting, and oftentimes it’s these small moments we love to document…

…such as this little boy and his sister playing in the fountains of the Los Angeles Music Center.

Photography 101: Weekend One

Kits beach this afternoon was pure magic with the glorious sound of her violin in perfect harmony with the late afternoon sky, the autumnal colors of the trees, the scattered clouds and the silhouettes of the figures against the shimmering water of English Bay.

show me the way to go home

Photography 101: SolitudeCapture a snapshot that conveys the state of being alone.


Cairns built by unknown hands high on the Lakeview Mountain Trail in British Columbia’s Cathedral Provincial Park, all show you the way home. When the mist comes up they are a welcome sight to the traveller suddenly very much alone in the solitude of the mountain.

This painting was first a photograph and is now a photograph of a painting. I hope this legitimizes its inclusion in Photography 101. I will await the reprimand.

Photography 101: Bliss – Ah, bliss. What does this word mean or look like to you?


What is your idea of bliss? Cheri asks. Well, I know what it is for Sunday. After over a year of blogging it’s the purrfect time to introduce you to a beloved member of the family. Sunday walked into our lives nine years ago, on a Sunday, and decided she was home. Tonight she looked so blissful in front of the fire, it was clearly a match. I Hope you agree.
