Crawling Around in the Garden

Summer weather is suddenly upon us with a vengeance, and that means getting down on all fours and digging through the dirt to hook up the irrigation system in the garden. The really big payoff is getting a view of the world form a cat's perspective...low down. Of course the bad part is that I never seem to get the real garden work done, as I'm always wiping off my hands and grabbing the macro lens for the camera.

Hey, waddya know...this one's even for sale on Etsy!

Stuff is growing like crazy this week. Every morning you look out onto the garden, and there's something new that wasn't there the day before. 
Finally getting the water hooked up has its rewards, as the sprayers cover everything with a fine mist. Uh-oh, camera time again.

Maximum IMPACT

This will be an exciting summer as Galerie IMPACT opens its doors. It's a huge, beautiful space in a prime ground floor location, right on the busiest part of St. Paul in Old Montreal.
Every inch of space is festooned with fantastic wares mostly from local Etsy artists as well as others. I've got dozens of my smaller Etsy prints in boxes on tables in the front, as well as larger prints hanging in the other room.

It's a gorgeous, well-lit space, and even though it's still in the final stages of completion, there was an unending stream of people pouring through yesterday. I think it's going to be a very busy summer.

I don't know what it is about them. Maybe it's because they grow in such density, or their straight, clean appearance. Anyway, kudos to the town of CSL for going crazy with them every year. It's like our own little tulip festival, but without all the tourists. The funny thing is that the biggest and bestest beds are on the slopes of the Cavendish/Fleet underpass, where cars go speeding by without even noticing. Whatevah! Gotta go back today and shoot the other side.

I couldn't decide which crop I liked better. is rough.

Available as a metallic print here, of course

About Me

My photo
A blog mostly about my photography, my etsy shop, travel, and other assorted addictions and predilections. I've been passionate about photography for just about as long as I can remember, right from that very first 1960s Kodak Brownie around my wrist at Upper Canada Village... A great deal of my adult life has been spent travelling the world for extended periods, always with cameras in tow. My photographic interests run the gamut from intimate portraits to landscapes to ephemera to street life. Although firmly entrenched in the digital age, I have a weakness for film and for old cameras.
