Hello dears! Can you believe it’s already the end of January? Where has this month gone? Anyhow, today I am bringing back an old series, Lately, for 2015! I began this chronology of posts as a little photographic journal of happenings in our days and weeks; and since Brigid has been prodding me into beginning this series again, I decided to take the plunge and go for it. Quite suiting to the time in our girls lives too, because our weeks are rather interestingly busy these days, and my photography has improved by leaps and bounds since I last did a Lately post. So let’s start again, shall we? 🙂
Look at what big beauty came in the mail a few weeks ago! Our family invested in a 75-300mm lens for my camera that way we can shoot our singing events without having to run up and back with my fixed 50mm 😉 And look at what lovely little creatures I was able to capture below using our new tool…
Aren’t they simply lovely? I’ve always wanted to get proper portraits of our little feathered friends that visit us every Winter for feed, and now I can! Oh the joy 🙂
Can anyone guess what post these outtakes are from?
Oh yes, and I’ve picked up knitting for the first time! My first real project (not counting the “swatch scarf” where I practiced a whole slew of stitch types) is a sweater. Yes, I am daring. And Brigid was maybe just a little (or maybe a lot) inspirational. Just maybe… a little…
Mr. Snow came for a brief visit this past week. I don’t know about you, but I either like my snow thick and white, without a trace of grass or leaves to be seen; or none at all. However, this last descent of whiteness created rather interesting slivers of shadows from the tips of the grass poking up, and I couldn’t resist the detailed contrast… 🙂
And last but not least, a few snapshots from our instagram! Follow us if you like for more behind the scenes updates!
