Reliving summer

Miller Park Stadium.

Here is a photo that my uncle took when him and my aunt traveled around the United States. I love how the lights shine in the photo… so dreamy. Like usual, you can click on the photo to see it full-size.

Ciao, Shavonne.

To the top of the stairs.

Looking up the stairs to where my cat is hanging out.


Caught by a strand of web.

Hundreds of plant seeds were in the air the day I took this picture, continuing a delicate late-summer journey up into the cloudless sky. This one remained, caught by a thin strand of cobweb.


Here’s to hoping summer lasts forever.

25 °C/77 °F, outside today. Not a cloud in the sky. I laid down on the front lawn using the grass as a cushion for this shot. The single tree in our front yard makes for an OK sunshade.

Another dance song? NO. PLEASE.

557 songs on my iPod, and still counting. I’m looking for some new ones, feel free to let me know some of your favorites. At the moment, some of my favorite Canadian artists are Classified and Chris Raw. They have some amazing hip-hop songs, and are very talented. Give them a listen if you love real hip-hop. Also, check out this website and vote for Chris Raw if you enjoy his music. Currently, he is #2 out of thousands of unsigned artists. His music is free, and every voter gets a free t-shirt. Another great thing about the website is you can take a look at tons of other unsigned artists, and get amazing music that no one else has. Underground music is always interesting.

The #1 song now in iTunes (Canada) is Give Me Everything by Pitbull, feat. Ne-Yo, Afrojack & Nayer. It pushed Rolling in the Deep by ADELE to #2. That’s sad. Give Me Everything is generic, uncreative, and really does nothing for the dance genre. Sorry Pitbull and Ne-Yo (Who the heck is Nayer?), but this is definitely not one of your best. It feels like you were trying to capitalize on how popular dance songs are right now by churning out one that sounds just like the others.

I have to manually accept each comment that’s posted on this blog. So sorry if it takes a day or so for them to get up. I keep forgetting to check…

I’d like for an upcoming post to feature a Photoshop tutorial, complete with a video. There isn’t very many good ones out there on some topics, and if there is, it’s either unnecessarily complicated, or hard to understand. Maybe I’ll make a YouTube account as well, we’ll see. Could be fun.
