day 81.
this was a Practice Portraiture day.
the theme...
On Their Terms.

harder than it sounds.
i wanted the perfect photos.

'do this, no- not that.. c'mon, please.'
i had to bite my tongue a couple times to stop myself from trying to get them to do it my way.
but what great shots i got letting them choose the photo.

'the boys'
my friends' kids.

and my model.
my girl. 

 letting kids be kids..
some great fun.

73/365, 80/365

Hey there.
as you all know, i'm behind on these posts.
day 73...
i didn't take the photos challenge specific, but as i looked back to see if i had any that fit the theme i saw this one (of many)
the theme is:

it is hard to get the night sky to look exactly as i see it.
this one was the closest i could get with my lens.

day 80:

it is still March in the photo...
a day or 2 after my little girl's birthday.
it is officially spring,

i was excited for this day.
(by the way it was supposed to be day 72, and i took it on day 72.. but when i edited it i put day 71 it is.)

i was excited for this day because my dad would be here for the challenge.
he was the best subject i could think of for it.

my dad was born in Northern Ireland.
he is an immigrant to Canada.
he is the oldest of 9 kids.
i adore my dad.

my brother and i are 1st generation Canadian.

gifted from our scandinavian heritage on my moms side.

68/365 (still in March!) 69/365; 70/365

day 68: 


Saturday night, 
at the beginning of the March Break,
we slept in our quinzee.
Sunday's challenge was Emerging.
here's my family emerging from the quinzee sunday morning.

later that day my boy wanted me to take a photo of his animals emerging from their house.

day 69: 

my face is not symmetrical...that would make it Asymmetrical...see.

so it is actually symmetrical in that if you drew a line down the centre; 
it has the same things on each side...
but... in this photo my mouth is almost completely on one side.

day 70:
From Down Under
