I know this shot is a little blury, but I did not feel like getting out the tripod and the light was fading fast, but yikes, this is the mutha of all spiders, no?

Really Need A Macro Lens

Caught this little guy on the balcony today, in not the best lighting conditions. Also, I do not have a macro lens, so this is all I could do with my zoomer.. Gotta spend more $.

Last Bee of the Night

Ok, last bee, I promise. It sure is hard to get good bee shots. I took close to 300 shots to only be able to use about 10 shots. These suckers sure do move around a lot. I think I need to fix my settings a bit too (as well as practice focusing quickly). These little guys move in about 1-3 seconds.

Take a break already!

Let`s Bee Friends

I think this is a bee, but I could be wrong. It could be a wasp, I have no idea. I suppose I should go look it up, but I am not in the mood to learn right now :)

Found a new and quicker way of getting to the dogpark too, which is awesome. Hopefully I won't have to battle for parking on those 'busy' days.

Homie Bee Hiding..

Eucalypt Leaves ?!?

Picked up this little Koala (A baby koala is known as a joey) the other day.. He's at home in his little tree there..

Too bad he can`t seem to find any eucalypt leaves anywhere, though.

Lens Testing With Potatoes

So I was testing a new lens a buddy lent me (Thanks Jon) Nikkor AF-S 35mm 1:1.8G and Nikon Speedlight SB-600 flash.

I think I learned that I really need (want) a Speedlight. When is my birthday? :)

Sunrise in May

Woke up one morning to this sun. Had to take a few shots. Was a nice colour to wake up to.

Orchid Inside in May

Ok, last shot of the orchid for today, for comparison. This shot is inside, but still in the sunlight. Nice grey wall in the background eh?

Orchid City in May

Was feeling inspired this morning before work, so I took a quick shot using the ample sunlight that was there. Wish I could've played longer :)

Tree Fun

I like this shot for some reason. Not sure what kind of tree that is, but I like the look of it.

Cinema High was used for the processing. (oh wait, I don't process my shots).

Critter Round Up

Trying out the storyboard idea again. I like this page layout quite a bit.

Shiney Water

Kind of a neat shot. Hard to believe that this is across the street from me. Nature is fun.

Fun with Water

Finally, the sun came out and gave me some light. Alas, it was only for a short while as the clouds ate the sun pretty quickly.

Wish the ducks would come back. (hint, bring bread next time)

Blub blub

I see why so many photographers take pictures of water. It's kind of neat. I think I need to play with my settings (hint, read the manual). Ya ya, I am getting to it :)

The ducks left, so all I had left was the little rapids.

Henry the Duck

Snapped this across the street, if you can believe it. I am lucky to have nature so close to my place.

The Locks

Mmm.. green water..

Double Decker Bus Fun

Went out looking for a new house and saw this double decker chip truck on the side of the road. Thought the colours might turn out well..

High Atop The Branches

Touch the ground

Ok so clearly I need a faster ISO here.. and larger aperture?!. This dog was REALLY fast. I was impressed. C'mere boy!

Up In The Sky!

So I tried taking shots of a birds over head. Neat colours, if you ask me. They seem so far away, even with my 300mm Nikor lens. Oh well, just gotta break down and buy that 400mm 1600$ one that I want :)

The Whole Shahbang

This dinner was fantastic. I really did over-do the spice, but it was really delicious if you can get over waaahay too many spices fighting for mouth attention. Hot too, thanks to spice that comes from Turks and Caicos (thanks mom).

Meatball Perspective

Playing with perspective here..

Caw.. caw..caw..

Saw this guy perched on top of my favourite tree.. Amazing that he can hang out there as long as he likes, so it seems. Nifty to have balance like that.


Playing with some abstract colours.. Not sure if this worked or not..

Waterfall by the Road I

Driving by, I caught a glimpse of this waterfall by the road and I had to stop to snap a shot. Can you see the shopping cart in the shot? Still beautiful, in my opinion. #ottawa
