Spring Flowers

The weather has been so beautiful this weekend and I spent as much as I could outside soaking in the sun. Here are some random photos of flowers I took with my Fuji. I take photos of those hearts in the garden at my parent’s every once a year but I can never resist how beautiful they are!

It’s been a while since I had a photo post but I finally had time this long weekend to go nature exploring. Here are some random photos of flowers, scenery and Teddy. All photos were taken with my Canon 60D and my Sigma 35mm 1.4 lens.

Niagara Falls in Autumn

We had a guest stay at our house from Chicago over the weekend. What do you do when you have guests from another country? Take them to Niagara Falls. I made a vlog of the day and check out some photos below! The full set is available on Flickr.

Weekend at the Harbourfront & Toronto Island

Toronto 6/23/2013
On Sunday, our family went down to the Harbourfront Centre to check out the Tall Ships at the Redpath Waterfront Festival. Teddy also came with us. Either we thought the boats looked the same as regular boats, or we were on the wrong side of Queens Quay but we couldn’t find too many to take photos of.

Since we had the dog with us we ventured into Paws Way. Inside was a cafe where you could share your food with your pet, a store and walls full of random beloved pet stories. To play in with the Tall Ships theme, in the event/activity room there were dog breeds that sailors used to bring on ships.

Since we seemed to fail at finding boats, we decided to go the island. It was somewhat cloudy so the sky in photos looked a bit boring.

Kariya Park

IMG_0192
The weather was gorgeous so we headed to Kariya Park to see if we could catch the cherry blossom trees in bloom. It’s a lovely little spot in the core honouring the twin city relationship with Kariya, Japan. We were probably a week early because not all the trees bloomed yet but still managed to snap some colourful photos.

Photoset: Winter Exploration

It snowed last week and on Saturday the sky was so nice and blue that me and dad decided to go exploring for interesting things to shoot in Mississauga.
