P Is For Photography

My piggy bank is either the CIBC or TD Canada Trust where I hold accounts. It's been a long time since I had a shiny pig on my dresser, waiting to get smashed open just to get it all out faster.
Don't act like you didn't do it too.
So I will share a love with you. Not people or pets who I love.
No my passion, well, second passion. Photography.
Here are some photos I have taken and not posted to my photography blog, Day One Photography.
I love photographing plant life from all different angles. This was underneath the bush the flowers were on, high above my head.
This is a macro shot from my sister's garden. Couldn't tell you the name of this pretty flower, but I call it a pom-pom flower.
I also love shooting peaceful street scenes. Try to show my neighborhood or surrounding hoods from different points of view. I am known to just go somewhere, go for a walk and snap away as I do. Watch for me point and clicking near you!
Lastly, it wouldn't be right without my beloved pet photography. They warm my soul.
Princess Ewok is the eldest by one month. April 14th she will be 5 years old. Hard to believe all this time has flown by, but I've had her from the start.
Bella I got as a rescue dog, sort of. She was not being abused but lived a caged life. That was close enough for me. We took her in when she was a year and a half old, and she will be 5 May 16th.
Both my furbabies are very photogenic, dontcha think?!

So tell me, is it in front or behind the camera for you?

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

**Recipe and photo owned by Freda's Voice.


Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself. I'm happy to say I did get it, and the hubster says it is just like hers! That's a compliment!! So here is my rendition of my mother-in-law's soup.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
