Get the Elf to the Canadian Deaf Art Exhibition!

I've been pretty bad about keeping this journal updated... sigh. I miss this outlet. I keep telling myself to get back into it and I WILL, DANG IT! But for now, I just wanted to post about this:

Last month I submitted five photographs to a Deaf Canadian art competition run by the Deaf Culture Centre. Four photographs were accepted and one won Best of Show in photography/painting! Out of all the submissions, 11 artists were selected - I'm the only one from British Columbia. The opening night is on May 10th in Toronto, where I will be given a Best of Show award. After the show, my photographs will remain in the gallery for a year. I'm incredibly honoured and feel as if I've made some progress with my goal of becoming more involved in the Deaf community as a photographer. One catch, I don't really have the funds for all this and I need your help!

I've created a fundraising page and would appreciate it so much if you could share this with your friends & family via facebook, tumblr, your blog... whatever works for you and/or donating some money if you're able to! I also created this video for the fundraising page... have a look and then check out my page for more info!

365 Days - Year Two

(Day One of 365 Days)

Starting a new 365 Days project! This one will have no rules. It doesn't have to be self portraits everyday, like my previous one. It can be of anything I want. The only rule is to take a picture every day for 365 days. It has been a few years since my last 365 and I'm feeling ready for another challenge. I remember getting really stressed out at times, constantly trying to think of something super introspective to post about and always feeling like I had to do some sort of digital manipulation or else my portrait was boring. I want to take this sense of pressure out. No rules. Just take a picture with my camera and sometimes even with my iphone. It can be something introspective, or it can be something just fun, or it can be a pretty picture of a dang flower. Whatever that makes me feel good in the moment. Just create.

You can follow the project here (probably will update once a week or something), on facebook which will be updated daily, tumblr, or flickr. I'll also post behind-the-scenes (or somehow related) iphone pictures over at my instagram!



Day Two of 365 Days - This one was much harder than I expected! Shadowplay is difficult behind a sheet! Excited to continue exploring this. The shadows behind a sheet idea was inspired by Lissy's amazing Shadow portraits.

It's late fall now, which means our garden is quite wet. It's dark by the time we manage to get to the garden. Much less is growing but we still have some kale, chard, green onions, and radishes growing... along with some cute stray mushrooms. We planted our garlic the other month and are looking forward to see them poke out by late Spring.

This picture is obviously not during fall but I'm composing a blog post about our community garden plot and wanted to share the pictures over here. If you'd like to follow my (brand new!) blog called Pocket Moss, come visit me there! It'll be about, well, pretty much everything. Photography, gardening, nature, urban homesteading, sewing, crafts, food, and so on!

Hope to see you there. <3
