Weekly Photo Challenge: Express Yourself

Sometimes serendipity is the casual photographer’s best friend.  Today, we challenge you to show us what “express yourself” means to you. – The Daily Post

From last night :)

From last night 🙂

Not exactly a great shot but its the best one I’ve had of my cat sniffing the camera/my phone.  She loves attention and hates it when this little device is taking mine away from her.

And just a few recent random shots that I personally kind of like…because I never just use one photo for these challenges.

Not sure how any of that expresses myself but these were all random shots and events that I didn’t quite expect but just had my phone with me and caught a really decent shot of my surroundings 🙂

Hope you like it! Happy Friday, my lovelies!

Photography 101: The Natural World

Capture a moment, big or small, and pay attention to the lines and curves produced by nature.

A good photographer is a constant observer: always watching and studying a scene, from patterns in city traffic to movements in nature. A photographer notices big, sweeping changes — like the sky at dusk — but also the tiniest details…Exploring the outdoors, with camera in hand, is an opportunity to look for natural lines that lead our eyes to different parts of a frame. Envision the bend of a stream, or the curve of a petal: how can you use these lines in your composition? – The Daily Post

I’m guessing you have a good idea what weather it is here today.  Gloomy, rainy, windy day in Montreal.  Other than evergreens, all the other plants are preparing for their hibernation.

Winter feels like its coming right around the corner.
