Music life

For me, this was going to be the year of music. Turns out it has been the year of photography. Here's a peak into music night in the kitchen, mixing the two. (Gotta love the carrot orange recessed lighting that came with the maize yellow shag carpet):

North Saanich Dirt Jump Park

Finally, after months of hearing about the North Saanich Dirt Jump Park without hearing about the exact location, I finally drove by it by fluke. I could barely contain myself until I could get back home and grab the bikes. And the camera of course.

Big blue, staying low, checking out the dirt:

Something about this one reminds me of Elliot in E.T.

Close up on the colours. I love this:

Here comes the groom

Good friends Brian & Kyle headed down the aisle. Here are a few favourite shots from their wedding day.

At the Sechelt Skate Park

Thanksgiving, a day out for the future Spence skateboarders....who seemed to be more interested in posing with the graffiti than riding. Can't blame them, they are pretty cute.

Kje cleared it... just not in this photo.

Wheee...skate slide.

Red, White or Blue....mooo

More Saanich Farm Photography! Lucky you. I was playing with my cow photographs and just love this shot focused on the spiderweb. But... red, white or blue? You tell me!

Itsy bitsy spider climbed up the waterspout....

Down came the rain and washed the spider out....

Up came the sun and dried up all the rain....

And the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.

Saanich Farm Photographer....mooo

As many of you have realized, I have gone a little Farm Girl Photographer over here on the island. Everything from pumpkin farms to wine farms to raspberry farms to grain farms to you name it anything that grows on the land farms. And then there are the fields and markets and fairs and home-made jams in jars.... I could go on.
After dropping my son off at the ferry on Sunday I drove around North Saanich with my camera and came across this amazing cross road with cows hanging by the fence. My moment of cow chasing (with my camera that is) had finally come.

For your viewing pleasure - my intimate moments with the cows.

I love the attitude of this hunched over black cow watching the others graze:

Long grass, blackberry, rusty barbed wire, fence post, barn, cows, blue sky. If this isn't rural life, I don't know what is:

Blurred cow:

I loved watching the cows just ignore everything but their stomachs:

What a beauty:
