Jen's new Tattoo

Since we're on the theme of new Tattoo's, Jen asked me to post a few images of her's.   She got a new one the week before I did.  Her's covers up a very old tattoo from when she was much younger.  There is no sign of the old one, just this lovely new one.   These pictures were taken just 2 days after she got it so still in the healing process.  Thus the bruising.  The beads of water are actually just water ;-)

It amazes me how much the technique, colours and technology has changed over the years. Greg from the Inkspot also did this wonderful job and this was the one that sold me on letting him do my new tattoo.

Bet you know the words ;-)

Heard this on the way to work this morning.  Scared the shit out of me that I knew all the words!  Yikes - but check out the hair!  Wonder what they look like today and if they still play ;-)

60 Bottles of wine on the wall, take one down pass it around......

59 bottles of wine on the wall.  ;-)

Yesterday was blowing a gale, gusts up to 70km/hr.  Today so far it's -6C so fair to say we're just hanging around the farm watching movies and sipping on wine this weekend.

60 new bottles of wine hit the house yesterday.  I make them up at DeFalco's in Orleans.  Unfortunately they are still a little to "fresh" for drinking but the Raspberry Merlot should be ready for Xmas and the Shiraz in about 3 months.   Time to get a rotation going so I always have aged wine around.  Jen and I both had a great time bottling, corking and then doing the labels at home.

Examining the results ;-)

Yes, I know......

I'm starting to sound like a stuck record - sorry I haven't been posting.   It continues to be crazy in my life, and the lack of time to get out shooting.  Nothing gets me posting like having new images.   Gonna try for this weekend but might have to work late Friday, Jen and I are bottling wine on Saturday (yum!) and the weather is questionable.  So we'll see!

But to tie you over, heard this on XM this morning and brought back some good memories ;-)  Hope it does the same for you!

Summer is Over

My thoughts are with our men and women who have served and are serving in our armed forces.   I'm proud to have worn the uniform for 16 years and I still continue to support those serving.

An image I took a number of years ago that I always display with pride each year;

But as stated, summer is now officially over for me.  The boats are loaded up and ready to head to the barn for storage tomorrow ;-(    A sad day each year.   They didn't get as many miles as I would have liked but they got a few.  But not a single overnight trip this year, but I really didn't feel the urge.  As everyone knows it has been a very different year, extreme lows and extreme highs.  But things have really stabilized this past 3 months, mostly due to Jen, she's been a rock for me.  Still rocky roads ahead with the separation saga but there is life afterwards, and a much better life.  Next year I hope Larry will get down for a week in Algonquin and I hope to introduce Jen to "being on the land".  May I double the miles next year ;-)

And picked up a neat sunset the other night;

Have a great weekend everyone!

Bermuda Images

Sorry everyone, up to my eyeballs this past week.

Was in Baltimore most of last week, although a bit cool, it was a decent trip.  Right up till I seen the Santa Claus already in the mall - ARGH!

Made it back safe and sound on Friday night and spent a good part of the weekend working on Bermuda Images.   Still a work in progress, but feel free to check it out.  Still organizing images and uploading and not 100% certain I'm happy with the layout.  But I like it better then my old photography site.

Back to work tomorrow for 2 days and then a 4 day weekend!

Been following Ken Rockwell's review of the D7000, he adds to it daily.   Has me drooling.
