cat walking away

I really like this image. What I like about it is the determined expression on the cat's face and the decision to walk away from its human pursuer (who happens to be Gili, my wife). The cat is asserting its will, so to speak. Or maybe it is just behaving like a cat, and I'm reading too much into it. At any rate, enjoy!

As we were driving down towards Finger Lakes, NY, we passed this field that was full with bails of hay, and so I had to stop the car on the side of the road, and photograph the scene. If I give up on opportunities like this, they tend to stay with me for a while and I feel bad for not capitalizing on them. Gili joined me after a few minutes, and I took a few shots of her. She is now over five months pregnant, and we are expecting our first child at the end of November, which is very exciting.

Seneca Lake, Finger Lakes, NY

Gili and I spent the weekend at Finger Lakes, NY. It is a beautiful area just four hours away from Toronto. There are lots of wineries around the lakes, so you can spend a whole day getting drunk, and some impressive waterfalls. This panorama is of the waterfront at Seneca Lake, the longest one in the area.

We have a really old grapevine in our back yard. When we moved into our new house about six weeks ago, we were told that it is around one hundred years old. The grapevine grows on a structure and provides us with a really nice shade, and soon (maybe in a few weeks) we will be able to eat some of its grapes. If you come for a visit you can have some too!

Blue Mountain

Last Saturday I went to Blue Mountain with my wife Gili and the Samba Kidz, where they performed three sets to advertise a rib festival that is to take place the following weekend. We got to go up the mountain in a Gondola for free, and I took this shot on the way down. This was my first time visiting Blue mountain in the Summer, and it was beautiful. It's too bad we didn't have more time to spend there, because there are some really nice hikes around the area, and other fun things to do.

I took these images at my good friends' place in ottawa. I used a shutter speed of 1/15 of a second and moved the camera as I was taking the shot. I like the different results, and even more the fact that the kitchen in the background magically disappeared.
