#FMSPhotoaDay- Week 4

Wow, a week of fun has flown by so fast having fun exploring here in Manila and Boracay. Even with all my travelling I was still able to share some snaps of my travels. I can’t wait to get home and process all my Canon 6D shots! But let’s not get ahead of myself– I still have 5 more days in the Philippines and travelling again this week to see another region!

Here was the list of prompts for week 4.

Wordless Wednesday LVII: Big Sweater Lil Baby

In December I visited my friends in Toronto and met their new daughter who was about 8 weeks old. She was so adorable…oh new baby cuddles are the best!  Big Sweater-Lil baby

I knit the sweater, and know that she’ll grow into it soon…for now it’s just a wee bit big, but fits if the sleeves were rolled up! Big sweater- lil Baby 2

#FMSPhotoaDay 2015- Week 3

Another week of daily photos are done! This was my last week in Melbourne, Australia…and it was jam packed with lots of activities and fun. I did manage to keep up and take a photo-a-day. Though at times I almost forgot until the last minute to snap a shot!

Here’s the list from last week:

That’s a wrap on another week!!! I’ll be playing along for week 4…but not 100% sure about my internet access while I’m visiting the Philippines…so might not post every day! If you want to play along here’s the list for week 4!

Party of 5…

My really good friends welcomed a daughter into their family this past fall and became a Party of FIVE!  In December I visited their home in Toronto and met the newest addition.  Over the past few years I’ve been able to take photos of their family documenting the changes that have happened.  The last photo shoot we did was in June just before they moved south from Iqaluit. Dec 17, 2014-047

This photo shoot was just a quick one done at their house, inside because of the winter weather outside! Dec 17, 2014-B&W- 5

Big brothers are clearly very happy to welcome their little sister into the family!

Dec 17, 2014-B&W- 16

Baby Sofia is just the cutest little baby ever. She was 8 weeks old and so cuddly.  Dec 17, 2014-B&W- 24

I can’t believe how much the boys have changed and grown in the 6months since I last saw them….why do kids grow so fast? Sometimes I wish I could just press the pause button…so life could slow down a bit.

It was so great to visit your family in Toronto.  I can’t wait to see you next time I’m in town…hopefully the weather will be warmer, so we can enjoy some of the great parks near your neighbourhood!

Wordless Wednesday LVI: 12 Apostles at Sunset

This shot was a film shot I took in December of 2003, 11 years ago.  I’m hoping on my trip this month I might get to go back to visit this awesome coastline.  The great ocean road is gorgeous, so many amazing beaches and sites! 12 apostles- Great Ocean Road

I took the opportunity 11 years ago to go up in a helicopter it didn’t disappoint, and I had so many amazing shots from the air…this is one of my favourite ones!

great ocean road

Most of my photos from my year in Australia in 2003-2004…are not scanned.  I was a film SLR shooter then, I think maybe a project in 2015 might be to scan my negatives…and share some more shots from my epic year long trip living overseas.
