Covid Diaries Week Seven and a Bit

It has been over seven weeks since I began this daily photography diary chronicling my time under stay-at-home orders due to the Coronavirus pandemic. British Columbia has flattened the curve now. Starting mid next week, we will start our slow transition towards the...
Covid Diaries Week Five

Covid Diaries Week Five

I can’t imagine what it must be like for people who have gravely sick relatives in the hospital or care homes, who they can not visit. This week we had to take my mother-in-law into the hospital for a heart valve replacement. My husband and father-in-law could...

Covid Diaries Weeks Three and Four

Who would have thought terms like “flatten the curve,” “social distancing,” “PPE’s,” “contact tracing,” and “N95” would make up so much of our vocabulary today. I hadn’t heard of any of these...

Glancing Backward, Looking Ahead

2018 was a crazy year for me. As some of you know, at the beginning of the year I started my photography instruction business. Then in the spring of 2018, my husband and I started a total renovation of our forever home. In order to complete the renovation, we had to...
Stretch Yourself Creatively

Stretch Yourself Creatively
