Last day of the month

Here we are at the end of August and as a new school year looms I look back at the past two months.  It was great to spend the summer with my boy's, Cool and Luke, and my wife Lysa and it was a fairly relaxing summer. One thing I found was that I did not really have a daily routine as things could change at any time.  So now that we enter the last third of the year I am looking forward to a bit more of a routine.

The biggest change that will make a difference here on my blog is that I will be posting my daily photo's on Friday mornings from this point forward.  This will free up the pressure of posting everyday and also will then just be a showcase of the past week's work.  If you care to follow my daily images you can find me on Instagram, Facebook, Tadaa and Streamzoo which I upload the photo's to daily.

By doing this it will allow me to post during the other day's on photography related topics and not have those post's get lost among the photo of the day.  I want to share more of my thoughts as well as my schedule of events though my bog and I just fee this will streamline things a bit.  As always I appreciate your feed back and hope that you will follow or continue to follow me here.  You can e-mail me at any time you wish.

So here are the images since my last post.  August 30th is day 243 and counting.  Add this to when Ifirst started shooting an image a day since December 31st 2010 and that will make 609 consecutive day creating at least one photo.

Going to be a late night.

Tonight I am planning to take my boy's out to the University of Calgary's Rothney Astrophysical Observatory (RAO).  It is out here that I am planning to take my photo for my Instagram366 for August 17th.  Since it will be late when we get home I decided to post my images from the past week now while I have a few minutes free.  Hope you enjoy and I plan to have some neat shots posted tomorrow.

The Challenge Continues.

It has been a very full summer and as such it has been hard to stay focused on posting to the blog regularly.  This could be due to the fact that I have tended to shoot my Instagram 366 challenge photo late in the day. Sometimes finding subject matter seems to be elusive as I feel I have photographed almost everything in and around our house.

Today was also shaping up that way when I decided to make our piano my subject.  As I looked at it and took shots I realized I was froming a mini series and thus did five photo's that I am presenting here.  Photo number 4 is my photo of the day for today.

I will now try to catch you up to date with the rest of the images between today's and tomorrows post.
