Beautiful Sky Tonite!

I thought I might find delight in the big bright sky today. Wheeling birds thru the window pane overlooking Guelph's St. George's Square ...stay tuned for the video!

Window View

6pm and it's snowing
The view out the window of my new apartment overlooking St. George's Square in downtown Guelph was pretty bleak today. So I've re-interpreted my image of it with the help of some digital editing effects.
the snow really stands out in this 3D cross-view
Posterizing pictures is something that comes easy for the Grade 5 and 6 students that I teach through the Focus on Nature program. It's a little harder for me! But I like this one.

Executive Director

I started my new job today as Executive Director of Focus on Nature, the environmental education group with whom I've taught nature photography in 25 classrooms of young students last year. My goal will be to raise that to 40 classes or more this year.

A couple of highlights of the day were seeing an article in the local newspaper titled "New Boss at Focus on Nature" and receiving a warm congratulations in the mail from Guelph's Mayor Karen Farbridge. And over 50 'likes' and comments on Facebook reminded me that I have a lot of support out there in the wider community too!
kids having fun with their cameras out in nature keeps me motivated
