What the HECK!

I was hoping to start taking photo of my spring garden, not a winter garden.
Even the poor garden fairy looks exhausted holding that snow.

 This photo (below) was under exposed when I took it, so I quickly beefed it up but I think I went too far too fast - right now SNOW is not my favorite subject - I will now delete this photo from my files.

Kensington Market

Hey Guys, 

I spend today in the city with some photography friends. The 4 of us drove to China town and then walked the streets to Kensington Market. We had a great lunch in a Mexican Restaurant named El Trompo at 277 Augusta Avenue . I tried a drink called "Horcahta (made from rice, vanilla, cinnamon and a bit of milk) ohh it was soo good. Any who here are just a few of the photos I took - I am always learning and my friends were nice enough to try to teach more about taking much to learn.

I love all the colours in this small space.

 These bricks are a great back drop

 I love the shadow here.

 Sweet skirts

I can't wait til the next outing.

Am I Crazy?

 Am I Crazy?
This couch is sitting on the neighbour's front porch and....... I love it! 
I love it - I see soo much potential.

Its a beautiful red velvet with wonderful wood detail. Can you imagine it re-upholstered in linen and the wood painted white. It has 4 cushions so I would re-design it to be 3 but keep the the same puckered back (proper terminology ???). I bet it would be a pretty penny to have re-upholstered.

 It looks super long ~ I took the photos from the sidewalk so I haven't had the up close and personal look yet.

 I think it could look something like this.

Am I crazy?

Let them eat cake.

Looky looky what the girls made, they made their first fondant cake.
It's much like playing with play-doh - so much fun.  
For the first attempt I think it turned out great, a little thick but non the less it's a show stopper.
