If we were having coffee I’d have quite a bit to tell you. After all, it has been a while since we last sat down together and a lot has happened since then.
I’m happy to tell you that the #ThursdayDoors feature is really picking up steam. Last week we had the most entries ever, and this week we’re headed for another good turnout. It is fun to see how people have embraced this idea and are enthusiastic about playing along.
For those not familiar with #ThursdayDoors, if you have a few minutes you can read my inaugural post from a few months back that explains how it works and how to take part. Who knows; hopefully you can join in as well.
If we were having coffee I’d also tell you that I’m finally on Instagram! Having been told by so many photography friends that it was almost sacrilege for a big photo buff like myself to NOT be on IG, I set up an account this past winter and finally started posting to it a few weeks ago.
I’ll be posting a mix of images used here as well as a fair amount of new unique content that will only be seen there. If you’re on Instagram as well, please do come look me up – I’d love to connect with as many of you as possible.
This is Formula-1 Grand Prix weekend here and the arrival of boatloads of celebrities and tourists from every corner of the globe that comes with it signals our unofficial start of summer. Things really start hopping when the Formula-1 circus comes to town. The bars, hotels, restaurants, and nightclubs all over downtown, Little Italy, and Old Montréal fill up for the week and the whole city becomes electric.
I do try to get out to see the race every few years but I won’t be attending this year. I’m finding that as I get older, being shoe-horned onto the limited access island where the track is located in the middle of the St-Lawrence River, along with 110,000 others is less fun than it used to be. Perhaps I’m getting claustrophobic in my old age 🙂
If we were having coffee I’d also let you know you that now that the warmer weather has settled in, don’t be surprised if I’m not around as much. You see summer is so short and seems to go by so fast that we really try to take full advantage of it while we can.
I’d tell you that I finished an Intro to Fashion Photography course last week that was very challenging, but also educational and lots of fun. There’s a few interesting courses for the summer session that I was looking at, but I’m kinda leaning more towards taking a break until fall.
Again, I want as much time as possible to enjoy summer without feeling stressed or rushed by homework and projects. And at my day job I have a big trade show to get ready for in July that should keep me as busy as I want to be right now.
We also got most of the vegetable garden in last week which always brings me back to my childhood and some really fond memories of my Grandmother.
It was funny how my gut told me to hold off on planting the tomato and pepper plants and wouldn’t you know it, we ended up getting some overnight frost twice this week – sure glad I waited 🙂
So now it’s your turn, what about you? Tell me what you’ve been up to.
