I live in Ontario, Canada and love making photographs. I continue learning how to use my DSLR. With almost 15 000 photos on this camera, I still have to have lots to learn.

I enjoy looking at photos on PB and learning from others on the site.

With each photograph I make, I learn and become one step closer to becoming a photographer as I learn about the camera, composition and my own eye for what pleases me in a photo.

I've completed a Project 365. My policy for the 365 was to change nothing about the photos except the lighting (levels, brightness, contrast, shadows and highlights). Everything else was as it was seen by the camera.

Since the 365, I made a photo each day, to 1000 days but was a bit more free about cropping and editing, though I tried to keep it minimal. I am now posting less often.

Now, I make photographs for the joy of making photographs with no rules and no commitments.

My kit includes:
Camera: Olympus E-3, Lenses: ZD 12-60mm, ZD 70-300mm super zoom-telephoto, Flash: FL-50R (off camera capable) Tripod: Manfrotto 055XPROB, Olympus 50mm f2.0 Macro 1:2 lens
Apple-Macintosh MacBook Pro

Take advantage of the warm spell while it lasts.
This entire winter has been a warm spell! 7° yesterday, still no snow. I keep thinking that means February will be brutal. But then that's what I said about January. :)

We spent so many hours at the arena with our kids and it is time very well spent.
They only go a handful of times a winter... but they love it when they get the opportunity

Good job Katie! I recognize Abbie and Kirsten too. Should I recognize any of the other?
Thanks Dave! Laura B is over beside Katie. I don't know if you'd know the red haired boy, that's George Benson, Rory's older brother. Not sure if you'd already retired when they moved here.

The colour "pops" in the third are very cool.
I notice that people are using walking poles. We use ours on the trails for stability and assistance in steep ascents and descents. They give the upper body a workout too.
We called this" nordic walking" -a lot of people young or older walk like this for recreation. In good or in bad weather. These poles are excellent! Personally I walk without. Thanks for comment and word " pole" Maggie

... but she looks so good in photos. Keep, gently, persuading her.
She does, but she doesn't see it... these were only because she needed photos for her art show. I hope to convince her to do more one day :-)
