Project 13 June

In January, I spent the first 10 days of the new year in New Orleans with my good friends, and started Project 13.

With my busy travel and work schedule, I don’t have the opportunity to take time for classes that I’d like to take – especially about photography.

I decided to create a photography challenge for myself, to take a photo every day, no matter where I was to learn more about my camera and the way I take photographs.

In June, I was in my home province of British Columbia as well as went for work to Quebec.

Project 13-  June collage

Bold colours must have been my lures during June – as I still think about Montreal’s bright blue sky and the small part of a church statue I could see; the bold red lips of an aboriginal sculpture at the University of British Columbia Anthropology Museum, the tasty and spicy fish at Toronto’s Sabai Sabai, a Thai restaurant; the sweet fresh strawberries we picked when I visited my parents in Vancouver and the unique creations of Mosaicultures, an art creation made with plants at Montreal’s  Botanical Gardens.

I also realized how much I like the textures of each of these photos – from the crispy texture of the Thai fish to the unique crevices of the summer strawberries.

Good memories of the beginning of summer in Canada and the learning continues…
