Introducing photography into my life is probably the best thing I could have discovered. Growing up all the way into my early 20's, I longed to find a hobby that I felt passionately towards. I'd see other people introducing activities into their lives (or things that have been with them since childhood) and feeling so strongly towards that specific project that they'd be glowing even when just talking about it - I wanted that too!
My interest in photography proves that passion sometimes has to find you and that if you look too hard, it might pass by without you even knowing it.
I often think that I should try to practice more in portrait photography (which I have and have some portfolio work on that) but when I take a walk by myself on a nature trail and capture images of the scenery that surrounds me, that's when I feel my happiest. I feel so disconnected from technology but connected to the world that surrounds us in such a dramatic and influential way, that I don't know if introducing portrait photography into my life as a "living" would fulfill me as much as nature photography does.
I'm not ruling it out completely as the few portrait (practice) sessions I have done, I'm over the moon by capturing these beautiful moments shared between people that in that specific time I wonder why don't I learn more about portrait?? Maybe in the future, but right now, I'm happy to take my walks and connect with nature on a totally different level. It's calming, it's serene and it's my passion.

Wow - The colour of Fall never ceases to amaze me! I just love all the beauty with the red, the orange and the yellow surrounding us on every which end.
It reminds me of how lucky I am to live in a place where I'm surrounded by nature even if I do take it for granted from time to time.
Have a happy Thursday!

You might remember my post about the little Bohemian Waxwing bird that I found out at camp.
Upon my nature walk yesterday, I stumbled upon the his brother, a Cedar Waxwing! There was actually a couple of them. I couldn't get my zoom to go in any closer which makes me think I need a longer lens! I swear I'm not greedy, haha!
I was uploading some photos from a little Autumn walk that I took yesterday, when I stumbled upon this little gem that I took in the summer. It's so simple but there's something about the image that made me smile.
I didn't edit this photo but I wanted to share it.
Fall photos to come!

How cute is this little guy? We found him outside John's parents camp this summer. So adorable. Even though the last photo is a little blurry, I still felt the need to post it out of pure cuteness.
On a photography note, I love the colours in these pictures. So lush and so green! Right now, all the leaves are changing into yellows, oranges and reds and while I'm definitely not complaining, it's funny to post photos that I took a while ago and make the comparison.
