These are some things I like (not in any particular order):
- Peanut butter on my ice cream.
- Bird watching.
- Wild flowers..asters mostly.
- A good ‘make-ya-think’ book.
- Thunder and lightening.
- The smell of fresh snow.
- Twilight (time of day, not the high school vampire series. Although, I enjoyed reading those, too).
- Painting walls.
These are some things I don’t like so much (again, not in any particular order):
- Passing on the right.
- Rare steak.
- Not being able to talk to ghosts. (I’ve come up with about a million questions for my dad since he passed away)
- Bent nails.
- Christmas cake (the kind with all the fermented fruit in it…yuk!).
- Being cold.
- Being wet.
- Being cold and wet at the same time.
About making pictures
When a person first starts to use a camera and finds that they really enjoy it, one of the first things she has to sort out is what kind of pictures she wants to make and what does she enjoy taking pictures of. There are several theories about how to go about working this out, but I like to keep it simple. Shoot what you like and know and in a style that seems natural and comes easy to you. Try a thousand different things to get inspiration and learn and continue to shoot, shoot, shoot. Somehow it will all fall into place. It didn’t take long and wasn’t very hard to discover what I’m meant to be doing with my camera. I’m an outdoors nature freak and so, of course I shoot a fair bit of landscape and nature scenes. You can see my Natural World image gallery at LazaPhotography.com.
About living in the country
A recent move to the country for my wonderful G-hub Geoff and I has provided us with a never ending stream of new experiences, pleasures and hardships. Some of those things include fresh air, quite, snow (big snow), song birds of many varieties, three dogs, moose, deer, coyotes, gardening, fence fixing, snow removal issues, big skies, bright stars, northern lights, cow poo, bird sh*t, porcupines (Karter calls them pokey-pines), Annual GandL Harvest Party, slow internet, satellite TV, jerry cans of gasoline……whew and the list could go one.
