I just finished putting together a photo book for my family. As usual there were challenges along the way but, thank goodness, it is finally finished. (And just in time. Whew!) The book is a collection of photos of a family reunion of sorts but there were a few shots missing so my second sister kindly let me use some of her photos as well. This was one of them and I love it! It captures the neighbour's field, the smokey evening light (there were terrible wildfires in the next province at the time), and me in my farm clothes with my camera doing what I do. Ah, such wonderful memories of an evening stroll with family... Thanks, second sister! (^.^)/
The heat is relentless. My garden is in a sorry state and flowers are few and far between. My main gardening goal this time of year is just to get my plants through the summer. Will they survive? We shall see.
Thoughts turn to cooler summers spent in Canada and of my mother's garden. She had several kinds of poppies but I especially loved these. One section of the yard was full of them and they were a glorious sight waving in the breeze...
I'm a photographer based in Osaka, Japan. I love to take photographs. I like to share.
