    Boy on rocks

    I've developed a serious love for old manual focus lenses - this shot was taken on a hike two weeks ago with my newest purchase - a Pentax Super Takumar 135mm f/3.5. I absolutely LOVE this lens. The boy is my kiddo and generally lovely model, of course. apr 26 016 mountain climber by...

    Cormorants Return to Hamilton Harbour

    I stopped in at "Bird Islands" in the Harbour to see these guys back at nest building for another season! Amazing eyes on these birds. apr 21 double crested cormorant on the nest by civgirlca, on Flickr

    Spring at the Reservoir

    I've been away for awhile, practicing practicing, after some serious discouragement (is that a word?) last fall. Here is a shot I took at the Mountsberg Reservoir a couple of weeks ago. Comments welcome and appreciated. apr 25 005 osprey lookout by civgirlca, on Flickr

    Toronto skyline with ducks

    This shot was taken on a cold dim day in December, from the Burlington Lift Bridge. I like it, but I'm not sure why. The ducks are long-tailed ducks, mostly. C&C always appreciated! dec 29 longtails on city skyline by civgirlca, on Flickr

    Sherman Falls - Icey weather

    Phone snaps...

    I shot this of my husband in the Mt. Britton observation tower in El Yunque, Puerto Rico. He's taking landscape pictures with his blackberry bold. Sigh. I love him, but he's not a photography guy! nov 8 020 rob silhouette by civgirlca, on Flickr

    Puerto Rican Tody

    Cutest little birds ever! nov 8 005 puerto rican tody best by civgirlca, on Flickr I spent two full days hiking in the rainforest of Puerto Rico (El Yunque) watching for these little guys (not much bigger than a hummingbird), listening to their little chirrup calls. I finally ran into them...

    Paseo del Morro

    We spent a week in Puerto Rico a couple of weeks ago - and one of the days we spent in Old San Juan, of course. Our first outing in the city was walking the Paseo del Morro, a path beneath the city walls and San Felipe del Morro fort. AMAZING scenery. Not the best light, high noon brightness...

    Sunrise smoothness

    This is a bit different for me, but I was just enamoured with the way the lake looked at sunrise this morning. Wonderful colours, and glass smooth waves. C&C welcome, let me know what you think. :) oct 24 sunrise smoothness by civgirlca, on Flickr oct 24 out to sea by civgirlca, on Flickr

    Paths in the Woods

    I can't decide which I like better. I'm collecting my best "path" pictures together, as I seem to have quite a few of them, and they're generally pretty (one of them won a red ribbon at the county fair). I can't decide which of these two should make the cut (same trail). The first I like the...

    Making Friends

    I find it very interesting that old men - especially working men like farmers and steelworkers and other such guys, are just enamoured with my daughter. Everywhere we go, these old guys kind of melt for her. She doesn't mind - she makes friends with them just as easily - is much more leery of...

    Panning the Scrambler

    It's not perfect, but I burned millions of pixels today attempting to pan county fair rides. This was my best result. It's fun, and HARD. oct 13 008 scrambler panning by civgirlca, on Flickr C&C is always welcome, although I think with panning it's just PRACTICE. And luck. A bit of luck.

    It's fall!

    This is my handsome boy, nearly five, on a hayride this past weekend. I wish he didn't have that little hay stalk on his hat, but I'm pretty happy with this: oct 5 016 corbin bw by civgirlca, on Flickr

    What walk-around (focus on landscapes) lens should I aim for

    I shoot with a Canon T3 and will be doing so for at least the next couple of years. I'm getting more into landscapes lately and my 18-55 kit lens is getting a workout. I know it isn't the sharpest tool in the drawer. I've been eyeing the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 and it will likely be my next lens...
