~ Day 25/365 Finnigan ~
Our cat Finnigan loves to sit in the kitchen and look down the hallway to our bedroom. It's like he is waiting for an invite. He peeks around the corner and just watches. When we call for him he will happily scamper to us. He is the most adorable and good loving cat. :)

My bball team won our first game tonite!!! Beat Mundare....our rivals. The boys were REALLY excited and HAPPY!!! I took this picture of the girls game that was before our game started. The girls from our school all wear funky coloured socks on the team, so thought it would make for a cool photo of the day.

~ Nahla Looking out a Window 17/365 ~

Nahla Pearl, looking out at the world. Glad to see today that Favre advanced in the NFL playoffs. Now whoever wins out of the Saints vs Vikings game I will be happy for them. Hoping it's the Saints that win though. Glad to see them on track again.

Hope everyone has a good week and enjoys this nice winter weather while it lasts.

~ My Team Canada Uniform 9/365 ~

Thought I'd post a little inspired Canada pic. I really hope that we win gold, got a jersey and all. Womens Team and Mens Team are gonna OWN this year. I know that USA beat us in the juniors but this will be the BIG BOYS. I think Canada has a STACKED team as always and the USA team is just not gonna get it done. :) GO CANADA GO!!! That Pepsi Chant can go die a painful death, worst idea ever.....ashamed for ever drinking that product.

~ Man Down 7/365 ~

I was SO tired today. Felt gross all day, fighting a cold, feeling sick, wanting to sleep....not wanting to be at work but life is so busy I pretty much have to be right now. This shot was taken with my Canon G7, love that little camera.

~ Day 6/365 Self Portrait on a Cold -36C Morning ~

Woke up on a COLD morning. Snapped this shot quickly with my 50mm, 1.8 on 1000ISO, using light from a small ikea desk lamp and computer monitor. It was so dark and cold out, just feels like a good shot for this 6/365 image. Well, posting it and off to coach basketball.....

~ Day 5/365 Canada Wins Silver at the World Juniors ~
Heart breaker as Team Canada loses to the Americans in overtime. However the bright side to it all was the play of future Edmonton Oiler, Jordon Eberle. He was amazing, makes the loss easier to take. That kids has serious hockey skills.

~ 4/365 Oiler Cup ~

Today was a horrid day...back to work, had basketball practice tonite and had to stay late. Had the worst sleep, always do. I have never really met a teacher that sleeps like a baby the night before going back to work after a holiday. The brain just never ever shuts down enough to get a good night's sleep. Tonight I should sleep a lot better, doesn't take long to get back in the swing of things.
Busy month ahead but I am up for the challenge. I hope I can keep up my spirits. These last months of winter can be tough. I know once that spring comes it'll be all down hill from there. I look forward to this finish to the year. 2010 is good so far....keep it coming! :)

~ Todd McFarlane is the Man 3/365 ~

To pay respects to my fave artist, creative imagination I took a pic of one of his action figures. This one is a Spawn Universe figure and was one of my first few I collected. It sits by my computer and inspires me when I am photoshopping it up. :)

~ Christmas Cactus 2/365 ~
So this morning it is like -20ish and I did not feel like going outside to do any photos, so took a quick shot of Jenn's Christmas Cactus.
The last holiday weekend for me and I am fighting a cold.......not so cool. Hope I can drink a LOT of water today and stay healthy enough to fight it off.
Hoping everyone else's 2010 starts better then getting sick like moi.

~ Happy New Year 1/365 ~

Hi everyone and welcome to 2010. I am not sure what my resolutions are but I figure to keep them basic. Eat healthier, exercise more and try to be a more healthier dude.....pretty much the same every year...:)

I have always wanted to try and do a 365 project, my friend/photographer Owen, challenged me so I figure 2010 is the year to give it a shot. Perfect day to start on, Jan.1st 2010. So here is 1/365 of my project to take a picture every day. We have 3 cats so I am sure there will be plenty of cat images. I will try not to bore people with just cat images, but I might not be too creative....so you'll have to see a few cat pics now and again. :)

I hope that 2010 brings good things, it sure seems like the world is more and more tense times. The worries over the economy, the small wars going on around the world, terrorism, flu worries, global warming worries and just overall tension it seems...maybe it's just me but the world is not doing so hot. I hope 2010 is a better year. I hope in some small way I can do some positive things through my actions. I know it's hard for one person to create global changes, but I try my best. Hopefully as a teacher I can try and have a positive influence in the students I teach. After all, to be really cliche, they are our future. I hope the future is bright and that 2010 is a great year for everyone on this planet.

My prayers are with my friends and family and I really hope that I can develop some new friendships in 2010. I really do want to network more and have more opportunity to talk and work with fellow photographers. :)

Well, here it is the #1 shot of January 2010!!! :)
