“My job is pretty boring, I’m an office clerk.”

– Martha and the Muffins

Accurate, except the part about being an office clerk.  I’m a policy analyst for the federal government.  While my job is pretty boring, I do enjoy the people with whom I work.

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with my point and shoot camera for years, so I took the plunge and bought a Canon T3i Digital Rebel camera last December.

Of course, I ended up shooting in Auto or Program modes, feeling like I’d been totally ripped off because the pictures weren’t much better than those produced by my PowerShot.  I’ve been taking a few photography classes and started this blog to write about what I’m learning, while I’m learning it.

While my pride wants to post the pictures that have worked, I actually learn more from the ones that don’t.  “You mean I have to check the light meter every time I shoot?”.  I’m planning to post the good, the bad, and the blurry.

There may be a few posts about cooking, gardening, and random stuff that I do for my children.  After all, Halloween is just around the corner.  Also, I have made futile attempts to get organized and keep the house clean, so I might mention a thing or two about that.

I live in Winnipeg, Canada with my husband, son and daughter.
