Butterfly Fly Fly Away

Can you believe we have turned the heater on in our home today?

I really want to shed a tear or seven right about now. I'm not ready for summer to end but at the same time, I do welcome Fall with open arms. I love the season. Maybe it's because I'm an October baby through and through and so many great things have happened in the Autumn months, I definitely feel my most inspired and content when it starts to get a little chiller even though it IS bittersweet.

I need to take out my camera and capture the ever changing colours of the season and I am so so so looking forward to it!

Have a great day!

This Poor Little Mama Robin...

robin bird photography nature photography At John's parents camp, there's this outhouse. About 2/3 times that I left the outhouse, this bird would anxiously fly by out from what I assumed was fear of me and the others. Eventually, the bird started to relax which is when we noticed it had a nest in a small tree just in front of the building. Pretty soon, it would just stay put as we walked by (I'm hoping it realized we weren't there to hurt it) and would protect it's babies. You could tell that this Robin was anxious though and we were all so worried about the fate of her little family that she was trying so hard to protect. It probably wasn't the best idea, but every now and then I would take out my zoom and try to snap a few photos of her when she was in a calmer state. I managed to get a couple of decent ones (see above) but to this day, we don't know what happened to her babies. I'm hoping they survived through the anxiety of the mom as she did fly away often when she would be startled. Like I said, I don't know the fate of the babies but I'm choosing to stay positive. :) Have a great week!

Rustic

I have been wanting to share these pictures now for a while. I just love the rustic look of them along with the damp feel of the scenery. I find it's so much easier to take a pretty photo when it's overcast outside. No pesky sun creating harsh shadows everywhere. I'm pretty sure one of my teachers actually taught me that in College. See, I remembered something from school!

I hope you're having an excellent labor day. :)

Life Lately

What have I even done this summer? lol! I am so happy that I found something that I love to do (photography) but I haven't even been making the time to practice. I'm not sure if it's out of lack of ambition or inspiration or that fact that I work constantly.. but honestly, I don't want to make excuses for myself.

I'm setting aside time to take pictures and also practice a sort of new/sort of old hobby of mine, writing! Right now, I've just been writing personally for myself.. making up some stories that usually don't make it past a page or two. However at the moment, I want to try "journaling". Not even sure if that's a word (lol) but I just want to set aside some time each day and privately write out my thoughts including but not limited to how my day went, my views on what's happening in my hometown, thoughts of the future, my hobbies and interests, pop culture... honestly, I'm not sure. I just want to write and I'm going to do it. Along with photography posted here of course. :)

Thanks for reading!

Birds & Other Musings

nature photography nature photography nature photography nature photography Happy Friday everyone! The past couple of days have been incredibly therapeutic for me. The weather has been absolutely beautiful so John & I have been doing hill sprints which is tough but feels reeeeeeally good at the same time. Plus, I managed to finish my latest book I've been reading called The Rosie Project. I definitely recommend it as it's a very smart novel with plenty of laugh out loud lines throughout! You'll love the main character and be rooting for him the entire time. It's really important to take advantage of your personal time by filling it with things you love doing! For me, that usually involves reading of some sort, especially lately. I just love sinking my teeth into a really good novel! I think I've read about 10 books this summer alone! Have a great weekend. -Jess
