Xmas with Grandkids

As is so typical of Wenda and me, we are down with a bad cough at Christmas. We celebrated Christmas with Tracy, Frank, the kids, and our extended families together in their nicely renovated house. The living room is large enough to accomodate all the people and presents that Santa brought in the middle of the night. We really enjoy seeing the kids receive their gifts. Tracy prepared a wonderful turkey dinner, with a setting for 12. Now rest rest rest.

Me and The Torch

The olympic torch passed just a couple hundred metres from our house today. John here from Belleville transferred the flame to his torch right at the street corner by our house. His two young kids were there just as proud as punch that their daddy was going to carry the torch. It started snowing just before the torch arrived and quit just after it left ... a fitting blessing. I was surprised at all the support vehicles with loud music blaring that accompany the torch. Click here to see more pics of the torch.

Engagement Book

This is the final page of an engagement book that I had made for a customer. The picture was shot at Whitby Harbour on a cold day in October. I used my large lens to put the background slightly out of focus. When it came time to assemble the pictures in a book, I started to search for a song or poem that I could include in the picture, so I googled the words beacon, love, arm on the internet and found these words in a song. It is amazing how the words really add to the picture.You can click on the picture to see it bigger.
I now have two books that I have created recently and Wenda and I will be delivering them to the clients before Christmas.

All I Want for Chrsitmas ...

It was a PA day today so Aiden had the day off from school. We took Aiden, Quinten and Lexy to the new swimming pool in Newcastle today - it has a great kiddie pool with dumping overhead bucket, arched spray and a section of water/air jets we call bubble mountain. The kids loved it. Earlier in the day, I took pictures of the kids and here I have made a short video of Aiden with his missing teeth. Turn up your speakers and click here to see the video.
