Strolling Around

The other day I went for a drive and was strolling around in a small park. Although it was quite cold and chilly that day, I definitely did not regret it and it’s a photographer’s life anyways. For the love of photography, I’m willing to be in any type of weather to do a shoot, I’m just THAT dedicated and THAT much in love with what I do.

It’s very nice to just occasionally take a drive somewhere and just stroll around in a park and snap some shots of the things around you as it is practicing and sometimes you get the most interesting shots that you would never have thought would come out that way. It’s also a good practice and if you bring a friend along with you, you can do a portrait photoshoot for practicing.

Here are some shots that I took that I found were the best and ones that I absolutely loved. I did not do any editing in photoshop, these were all edited and adjusted in Lightroom. I did not want to change too much in the image since nature is beautiful and interesting. With nature it’s always unpredictable.

I hope you enjoyed these shots. I had a great time strolling around and just shooting away with my camera. I also found it very relaxing. So go out, take a drive, and photograph! Enjoy yourselves!


From Winter to Spring

Since Spring is supposed to be here, we are still yet getting the odd cold days with a bit of snow and some rain. But nonetheless, it still means that spring has finally arrived.

Here are a few shots that I took from the very first snowfall that we, in Ottawa, Canada, had. It was beautiful at first but then it just became a lot of snow and brought a dreadful winter that seems to never end.

You know it’s spring when the weather is becoming warmer, the sun is out a lot more, snow and ice are melting, and you see mud/grass showing up here and there through patches on lawns. Lastly, you get to see the actual driveway and pavement! Here some shots that I took when it was beginning to melt and the bit of ice that are still on branches.

It’s a beautiful transition at times when it’s from winter to spring. The way ice melts and forms during winter on branches or after a snow/ice storm. Each season has it’s own beauty and it’s only a choice as to whether you want to see the beauty of it or hate on it. I do a bit of both. I see the beauty of the season and at times I hate it. For example, the snow. The beauty of snow is when there’s the romantic snow falling. What I mean is the big snowflakes that are slowing falling down from the sky which to me is romantic and a great photoshoot opportunity. The hatred of snow is when there’s too much of it and it’s difficult to drive on the roads which causes a lot of accidents. Since there are some crazy drivers out there, they don’t always drive safely so that’s one thing I hate about the winter.

So what are your thoughts on the seasons?

Cheers everyone! Enjoy the coming Spring!
