Well the month of August is done…summer is over! Lately the weather up here is feeling more and more like fall or even winter. On the walk to church this morning it was sunny…but a cold wind, but the end of the service it seemed about 100% colder. Here’s another wrap up of photos from this month. I’ve done 8 months now…only 4 to go left in this project. At times this month I got a wee bit behind but managed to catch up…after all can’t stop the challenge when I’m so far into it.

Without any further delay here’s my summary of my photos! Some of my photos were taken with my Canon 50D and some were taken with my iPhone 3GS!
Day 1: something that begins with N… I was visiting my friend in Iqaluit and her daughter was painting her nails with a french manicure kit!
Day 2: incomplete… All the pieces for a sweater that I had knit…just needed to sew them together! Was working on the hat (which is on the knitting needles.)
Day 3: skyline… just the skyline of the Pangnirtung Fjord!
Day 4: fresh… homemade bread that’s fresh out of the bread maker smells so good!
Day 5: early… taken on an early walk down at the beach.
Day 6: this means a lot to me… Having friends over and sharing a meal means a lot to me. It was a fun night making pizzas.
Day 7: sign… just a bilingual sign in town. (Inuktitut and English!)
Day 8: peek-a-boo! Taken by a friend…it’s me playing peek-a-boo by looking through some of the Baleen from a Bowhead Whale. The hunters returned from a successful hunt this day!
Day 9: 2 o’clock… just stopped to look out my window at work…glad that it stopped raining!
Day 10: beverage… mmmm crystal lite!
Day 11: i love doing this… It’s always a good day when I can chill in bed and read a good book!
Day 12: macro… Here’s a shot of an Arctic Poppy…they are very tiny flowers! (no filters were added to this photo…)
Day 13: fast… these kids were going super-fast chasing each other and even kicked up some dust!
Day 14: trash… just a shot of the dump. The wind often takes the garbage out of the fenced in area and spreads the trash over the tundra.
Day 15: the best… This is a view that I’ll never grow tired of and I do think it’s one of the best!
Day 16: cooking… “I cook to live, I don’t live to cook!” Have I mentioned how much I hate that there’s no take-away here?
Day 17: exercise… Today’s exercise was a walk to the store to get some groceries!
Day 18: someone you spoke to today… Spent over an hour talking with my little-bro and sister-in-law on the phone today! It means a lot to talk to family and friends on the phone! 🙂
Day 19: lost… lost or should I just say forgotten? Left my keys at work today…but for a moment I thought I had lost them! Luckily it’s only a 5min walk from work and my neighbour had keys for my work building. But it wasn’t the best ending to the day after having worked overtime that day!
Day 20: stairs… Just a shot of the stairs that are at the side of my work building. Love how the shadows play in this photo!
Day 21: slow… Blurry photos happen when you have your shutter speed set too slow and the action is too fast!
Day 22: a room… Just a shot of my comfy living room!
Day 23: yellow… My pirate rubber duckies…a gift from a really great friend!
Day 24: in the background… friends walk ahead on the trail and fade into the background as they look for more berries!
Day 25: culture… Here a little girl shows some Inuit culture with what she’s wearing! A pair of Kamiks (seal skin boots) on her feet… and her amouti (women’s parka) is a way for women to carry babies on their back…but here this girl is carrying one of her baby dolls!
Day 26: entrance… Just the entrance to my house!
Day 27: 10 minutes from home… This was taken at the back of my friend’s house…just a short 10min walk from my house! (My house can be seen in this photo too!)
Day 28: corridor… Every day on my way to work I walk through this “corridor” of sea-cans!
Day 29: lucky… I’m lucky to have good friends that like to get together for sushi making dinner parties!!
Day 30: cluttered… This is my cluttered craft shelves… I need to do some organization.
Day 31: dangerous… Some people might think riding in the back of a pick-up truck is dangerous…but I think it’s an ok choice if you don’t want to walk!
So September is here…who’s going to join me in snapping a few photos this month? Here’s the list… let me know where you post your photos so I can follow along your snaps!
