Several years ago, I met up with my sister in Montreal for Easter. We were both going through a hard time. Our father was very ill and we’d both spent a lot of our recent free weekends jetting back and forth between our homes and Thunder Bay to spend time with him.
But on this weekend we decided we needed to take a moment to look after ourselves instead, take a step away from our reality and enjoy a few carefree days of happy sister-time amidst the heavy darkness that was starting to engulfing our lives.
This photo was snapped in Old Montreal and represents how fleeting moments can be and how nothing in this world is permanent. For an instant these bubbles graced us with their presence and then pop they were gone forever.
That is why it is so important to always find the joy nestled within the little things; for that is all that we have in life – a million moments strung together to make a whole.

This celebratory photo was taken at the exciting moment serendipity decided to intervened and point us in the right direction!
When Kaitlin and I left our hostel that day in Prague we thought we had a map. Turns out, we didn’t! But we didn’t let that stop us on our mission to find the Prague Train Station (Hlavni Nadrazi). We picked a random direction and set out, relying on some sleuthing and our gut intuition, knowing the odds were against us.
You can imagine our delight when we stumbled upon this sign!

I’ve always liked to play around with shadows in my photography and over the years I’ve photographed myself personified by shadow on more than one occasion. This shot is unique because it captures my first flirtation with the shadow selfie concept, way back in 2010, before the prominence of smart phones had made selfies an every day thing. I was thrilled by the contrast my body cast amidst the bright orange sand of the red centre of Australia’s outback as the sun set behind me.
