October was a bit emotional for me.  One of the biggest events to happen, was to travel to Quebec and see our son Samuel, graduate from basic training, in to a soldier.  Private Welsh, is an Infantryman, serving in the Canadian Armed Forces.  It truly takes a special person to give his life to serve his country and its people, in such a way.  As mom, I have to be honest, I was not loving my son's choice, but I have fully supported him all the way and am proud of him.  Of course I pray for his safety, as I do for all my sons and also their friends.  I hope Private Welsh, will have a good experience as a soldier.  I am sure he is learning lots about our country, the world and combat.

Be Inspired

Sometimes life is tough... it just is.  But what would the great times be, without the tough ones?  I mean, would we be at all grateful for how fantastic life is going, when it is good, if we had it like that all the time?
Just like seasons in nature, our lives have seasons too.  Thank God!  
I find it interesting that fall is a time when plants die or go dormant, animals hibernate or migrate, and yet, there is beauty to be seen, and magnificent splashes of colour that you would not see at any other time of year... because the plants need the season change to show their brilliant arrays of colour.
We can see beauty and good, during autumn, so we should see it in our lives as well. Even if we are going through a tough season, there are remarkable blessings to notice.
And remember, from ashes comes new life.

Photo Tip

This month's tip is pretty important.
For most who own a modern point and shoot camera, face detection is now programmed in to the software.
But if you do not want face detection on, or your camera to automatically focus to the closest thing in range, you will need to set your focus intentionally on the subject you want.  Sadly, I see too often, what should be a clear image, blurred or missed focus.  Cameras will automatically focus on the closest subject so you will need to intentionally focus on your chosen subject.  Often there is a square focus icon in the viewfinder, to help you locate where you are focusing.  You can also offset your images by locking your focus on your subject and then moving your camera left or right,  This is called recomposing.  It can make for a nice effect to your images.  Just be sure when taking photos of people, focus on the eyes, or if farther away, the face.  Happy shooting!

Red Maple: Example of Intentional Focus 

I am excited to offer resin framed prints.
This idea is something I had been working on for a while. It was just a matter of finding the right product, learning the technique and then creating a dust free work area and having lots of patience. 
I am happy with how my resin prints turn out, but they are a lot of work!  
Heat, UV and water resistant.  They will last for many many years.  I have a few for sale that you can see at the upcoming Christmas markets.
