Allergy Season at it's best!!

So any of you who suffer from seasonal the extreme form!  know how much this must have affected me... However, REACTINE, is my new best friend!!   The sunset was shinning perfectly and I needed to get these shots!  ...even though I have been home bound for a week due to the extreme pollen ;-))  I did wear gumboots, thick pants and a sweater which were removed in the garage and followed by an immediate shower upon my return....but I'm impressed with the photos!

The bumble bee

I have not witnessed a bumble bee with such an orange bottom end?  I looked on line briefly but could not find my answer...regardless he was simply beautiful...and I was once again caught without the 'right' I am allergic and this is as close as I could get with an 85mm lens!!

I changed the background colour on the second one to accent the colour!

and the third one I think I will turn into a puzzle???  Thoughts?? or Challenges?? ;-))

A Toast!

So this is my last post for Dave and Tanya's wedding.  A fantastic night had by all, so here is a toast to the bride and groom to leave you all with.

To a couple I can only imagine together
you have each truly found your souls within each other
May each day fulfill your need for adventure 
and each night fulfill your need for love!

May you never lie, cheat or drink.
but, if you must lie, lie with each other.
And if you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink to one another.

I love you guys!

Sisters theres this boy
& the way he laughs
makes me smile,
and the way he talks
gives me butterflies,
& just everything about him
makes me happy!

Dave's Angels!!

My Friends...The Memories...
The nights that lasted forever and the days that went by so slowly.
The nights that will replay in our heads 
all throughout high school as our best night ever
The boys that we’ve kissed, the hearts we have broken
The boys that have broke our hearts with the promises they never kept.
The alcohol that we drank all to quickly on nights that everything seemed to be wrong.
The other girls that hated us for being “perfect” and envied the life we led.
So heres to you girls...the friends that have stayed by my side.
When I didn’t know who I was, the friends that I would never trade anything for because...

...Dave's Angels!

Two souls

What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are strengthen each other... to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories.    ~  George Eliot

Today I am wearing the smile that you left me with...

Do What makes you Happy!!

Do what makes you happy, Be with who makes you smile, Laugh as much as you breath, Love as long as you live!

A beautiful Party

                                                           I love the shadows on the dock!!

The old water flues

These old water flues were used to bring water from Crawford Creek down to the surrounding orchards, in the 1920's, 1930's.  After the fires roared through Kelowna they started developing new areas, and these buried rusted treasures were exposed.  Now covered with moss, pine needles and cones, they excite the hill side the reside on.

Okanagan Cherries

The cherries are finally ripening up!  I didn't have the right lens on, for standing outside the wire fence...but I will try again later and get some more shots!!

So I tried...

So I tried to get the wedding party focused on a photo shoot, but once the champagne came out that attention seemed to shift.  Cute photos regardless though, and so Dave and Tanya!

An unbreakable Bond

I'll Love you FOREVER
           I'll like you for ALWAYS
               As long as I'm living
                          My BABY you'll be!

The love between a son and his mother.
