The Bloom Collective: Simple

I belong to a photography forum on Everything Bloom called The Bloom Forum.  The site is a fantastic resource for online workshops of all kinds.  Everything from creativity, editing, business and shooting.  Back in December, they announced a project they were pulling together for 2017 called The Bloom Collective.  The main purpose was to pull a few photographers together to curate a collection of images each month based on a theme. And on a whim, I threw my name in the hat and said why not.  I can hold myself accountable to making 12 images this year for creative purposes, right?  Right.

January's theme: Simple. I excited to see where this project goes throughout the year.

Banff Travels. Red Deer Photographer

Because it's tuesday.  And this was filmed in April.  And it's already October.  And I can't believe how much kids can change in six months.

Thought those were good reasons to share.

A little video of our Banff travels.

JUST BECAUSE . PERSONAL

This was last August.  Our annual summertime tradition of visiting Vancouver Island.  One of my favorite places ever.

FAMILY TIME . PERSONAL

  ... is the best time.

A few shots from our recent holiday.  Filled with water, sun, golf and nature.  It was good.

MONACO IN MAY . INSTAGRAM

Those of you who follow me on Instagram, will know how much I filled up your feeds with my iPhone photos from Monaco :). Normally when I travel I use my DSLR a lot more.  Like every day.  All day.  But on this trip I wanted to pack lighter and decided to only bring it out on a few select days.  Which meant a few lot more photographs taken on my phone.  Which, seeing all of them together here, makes me just as happy.
