Black and White Wednesday - " A Model Shoot "

PhSho UPM #2 June 2011 405 WM




Are you looking for my kids?




Nope, narry a kid to be found.





A while back I joined a few Photography Associations here in Montreal - and I'm always reading about all the fun shoots they go to but never got to one yet.

Till last Sunday.




It was suppose to be at this beautiful park but at the last minute the venue changed because rain was threatening. So about 25 photographers (United Photographer of Montreal ) met under the Jacques Cartier bridge (it's pretty big) and the models showed up. The urban setting was actually more in keeping with the style of the models anyway so nothing was lost.

After about 4 hours of shooting I had used up both cards (8Gbites each) so it was time to stop for me.





the long road




Take a look at some beautiful photography at Lisa's site today.







Of course, the best part of the day was seeing our car drive up at the end of the day, window rolled down and 2 little munchkin voices screaming...."MAMA MAMA!"

Hope your week is halfway to perfect.

Black and White Wednesday " More Get-away "

Mt Tremblant week-end June 19,2011 019-2 WM

(yes.....this is little Miss Coquette and her backward glance pose.)

I did say I'd post more pictures from our tiny trip to Tremblant but be warned. There are a lot of them. (Sorry....couldn't help it!)

It's funny but even though we were only gone one night - it made such a difference. Really, it felt like we'd been gone for a week. We really need to do this more often - we get in such a rut of schedules and rushing. It's so nice to just chill and "be"! Instead of do, do, do!





Family edit4

Like sip a little wine together on the balcony and watch the sunset while the kiddos were in dreamland. Getting away gives you permission to do that. At home - I'd get ansy thinking about all the things I had to do.

Chase the kiddos around.

I can't get enough of all the different shapes and colors in the architecture.

We took the gondola up the mountain - which seemed like we were headed for the top of the world. Wow....it's high.

And you can't beat that view.

TODAY! " A Little Get-away!! "

Mt Tremblant week-end June 19,2011 006


When I asked Danny what he wanted for Father's Day he answered without hesitation. A crepe.




Ahhh....not just any crepe. A crepe from La Crepe Bretonne in St Sauveur. Which just happens to be about 30 minutes north, into the mountains from here. And which also happens to be (if one drives another 40 minutes)....Mt. Tremblant. And we haven't been there in forever.

So, even though the girls still have school on Monday and Dan and I both have tons of work to do......we so needed some down-time.




So....right after church on Sunday....off we went.




The girls fell asleep after crepes, cheese, bacon and yummy maple syrup, so when we arrived they dragged their sorry little bums into the lodge. They may look awake but really they're almost asleep.

Of course, they woke up pretty fast with the thought of a dip in the pool.

I was quite judicious with my camera as I forgot my extra battery and only had half juice in the one in my camera - but I managed to squeeze every drop out of it.

We just got back a little while ago, and even though we were only gone for about 28 hours - it felt like a week. A little get-away does wonders.




I'll post lots more on Wednesday.










Meanwhile, it's "Tuesday around the World" so hop on board.

I thought I would convert some of the pictures I posted in color yesterday. They look so "old world" to me in black and white.

I know Blogger is giving people trouble commenting - I'm having trouble doing the same on many of your blogs. Hope this cloud passes soon.






Thanks to everyone who have been so encouraging to me for my new site.



You're all the best!!!
