A week's photo diary (plus a video!)
Last week had been a bit crazy when it comes to summer activities. We decided to stay for a couple of days at Great Wolf Lodge, and also got to walk around Niagara Falls. And of course, it all started with another visit to the zoo:D
Our zoo has the awesomest staff and volunteers, yo!
The little one was cranky by this point...sigh....
Then, off to Niagara!
bedtime story time
It was raining on and off the day we were there.:D
Walking around Clifton Hill, which is the most touristy place ever:)
Singing while walking...I can't even....
"Please. Enough with the singing!"
They seriously did not get tired of the water park!
Here's a short video my daughter filmed while we were there. I didn't even know she did this til I found it much later on my phone!
Our last day...the little one was not too happy to go.
I can't believe half of August has gone by already...sigh....
I know a lot of people don't like wearing leggings as pants. I'm not one of those people. (I do have a rule that the top has to be long enough to cover your butt. Otherwise, I don't know what you're trying to advertise....you know what I'm saying?) old sweater from Hot Topic and leggings from Aritzia, Vans slip ons Are you a leggings fan?
Here are some recent shots taken with my Pentax K1000 film camera. I decided to mail my films and have them developed at Downtown Camera , and oh my gosh, you guys! Such a big difference with how they turned out. So so happy, and will be sending all my 35mm films to them from now on. (All these shots were how they were sent to me...no editing. Used Fujifilm ISO200 films.)
I've been a huge fan of Lois Van Baarle, or simply known as Loish , for awhile now. She's an amazing Dutch digital artist who has worked for Lego, Guerrilla Games and Coca-Cola.I just started supporting her on Patreon , where she shares a lot of tutorials and more art work:) Her work has been such an inspiration...something about her art work just speaks to me, probably because she was influenced a lot growing up by The Little Mermaid, and that is one of my all-time favourite Disney films! I constantly turn to her two books, The Art of Loish and The Sketchbook of Loish. She also has a third one coming out soon:) Here are samples of her works (from her website ): Even though I'm a traditional artist and Loish's work is digital, I tend to do do a lot of studies of her works, mainly in my art journal:) I did this with watercolour, colour pencils and aquapastels from the Jane Davenport line. same as above:) I've decided to dabble with digital art, using an old draw
Happy Monday and have fun in the new week.
