118 Photos in 2018

….and finally…..

December 27th, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

I suck at pool.... so I'm often happy when I am finally put out of my misery and the games are over and done with. In the middle of one of my many lost games this afternoon I realized that this was probably a suitable setup for the final shot of the year, the category [...]

Sweeping up the loose ends

December 26th, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

As the year comes skidding towards its end I only had a few photos left to take to finish up the 118 Photos in 2018 scavenger hunt. On Christmas Eve day we had a few things to run out and do and we ended up both on Granville Island and in Gastown. On Granville Island [...]

I have simply never acquired a taste for black coffee. I love the smell of coffee, I love the ritual of making a cup of coffee, and I can’t imagine a morning without coffee. But I also find it bitter without cream to smooth it out and a bit of honey to take away the [...]

A blank puzzle and a sharp pencil

December 21st, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

I have fond memories of crossword puzzles. My Granny always seemed to have a crossword on the go, and so did Mom. Dad did them too. When I worked in the hair salon on Saturdays I always worked on the hardest puzzle of the week with Lorraine. I haven’t done crosswords in years…perhaps I should [...]

Merry Octopus!

Do you have some Christmas ornaments that have sentimental value? I have a few, and this is one of my very favourites. Years ago, at UBC, our lab had a Secret Santa gift exchange. I opened my gift and found an angler fish dangling a candy cane, and this little guy. Both are handmade gems [...]

I am getting down to the last few photos that I need to take to complete the 118 Photos in 2018 challenge. Of course I left too many too late, but as of today I had ten left (only allowed to post five per week, only two weeks left...cutting things close here). Some of the [...]

Hated Chores

December 9th, 2018|118 Photos in 2018, Monochromatic|

I despise ironing, and I turn thread into knots when I try to sew buttons on anything. So I tend to buy clothes that don’t require ironing, and clothes without buttons. If there is a way to avoid doing the things I can’t stand doing, I’ll find it :) But if those things make good [...]

Making Babies

December 6th, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

I helped a fabulous group of people make many babies this week, baby salmon that is. The eggs in the cups in the photo are future Cultus sockeye salmon that will hopefully come back to Cultus Lake in four years to help rebuild this population and add their genes back into the proverbial pool. Every [...]
