A collection of images, inspiring quotes and a camera strap GIVEAWAY courtesy of Canon

 Hello friends!  I hope your week has been great so far.

On Thursdays, I like to keep my posts fairly simple and will
often just share a few pretty images I snapped during the week.

And if you follow me on FB, you’ll know I like to share an
inspirational quote along with one of my photographs each morning.

So I thought I would take the opportunity today to share just a few of my favourites.

I will also be giving away a ‘Phat Strap’ camera strap,
courtesy of Canon, and hope you will take the time to enter.

 I have been wanting to compile them for you in a post, but to be
honest, it is quite a large collection as I have been doing it for quite
some time.  And though at times it becomes a little challenging to bring
something new and fresh everyday, it fills me with joy bringing a little
word of encouragement to people every morning.
 I have also enjoyed seeing my own style develop as time goes on.
As an artist, I have always struggled with trying to figure
out own style.  But as a ‘photographer’ I feel as if I am
close to finding my own voice in each photo I take.
 I really believe God gives each of us a talent.  Not necessarily
an artistic talent, but there is always something that one will shine at.

I also believe your talents need to be nurtured and used for the
world to see.  It is like saying ‘thank you God for this beautiful gift’
and wanting the world to see what you have been given.

But I also know the importance remaining humble through your success.


I truly hope that you find joy in these as they from my heart. 

Now for the fun part…

The folks at Canon Canada were kind enough to allow me to try out their new Phat Strap camera strap. I can tell you with all honesty that this strap is one of the most comfortable straps I’ve had. I chose the plain black leather strap and I just loved the stitching and how durable it feels.  I am thrilled to be able to offer one of you the chance to win your very own Phat Strap of your choice.
