Happy Birthday, Brooklyn Bridge

Last Friday, May 24, was the Brooklyn Bridge’s 130th anniversary. In her honour (bridges are female, right?), here are some of my favourite shots from my trips to New York City.

Pet Portraits: Okami

Here is a shoot I did last winter with a young and handsome husky named Okami. He is a really beautiful dog and I loved shooting him, especially while he was running – you could tell how much he was loving it!

Pet Portraits: Jasmine (puppy)

Jasmine is my mom’s Dachshund. She is a chocolate and tan dapple, and although she can be a little brat (like all dachshunds), she is also incredibly adorable (like all dachshunds). Note the blue in her left eye.

These photos were taken when she was 2 months old; she is 9 months old now so I’ll need to update with a more recent photo shoot soon, but the puppy pictures were just too cute not to share – even if they’re overdue!

(As a side note, I’ve just realized that WordPress has made the photo posting process much quicker – this means I will most likely get back on track with regular posts. Hooray.)

And my personal favourite, the frolicking in the grass set.

[This Bike Climbed] Mount Washington

Last summer, my boyfriend and I took a bike trip down to New Hampshire, where we drove up Mount Washington (and of course, we got one of those “This Bike Climbed Mount Washington” stickers, which is now proudly stuck to our fridge rather than on the bike). I hadn’t started my blog yet back then so I’m posting these photos now, in anticipation of our next bike trip at the end of the month.


Our first stop to look at the view, about halfway up the mountain.


Mountain layers.


Close to the top = entering the fog.


Tip Top House at the summit.


Back in the day, these were the “guest rooms” in the Tip Top House.


Not much of a view… The sky was mostly clear but a cloud was sitting right over the mountain.


Coming back down.


Clear view just below the fog.


Our bike enjoying the view before the drive back down.

Quebec’s Ice Hotel, 2012 Edition

What better way to welcome spring than with… Ice Hotel pictures. Ahem.

I really need to work on my timing. I took these in February but am only getting around to posting them now. The hotel itself is still open for another week, however.

There was a wedding that day, and we happened to be there when the bride arrived.

The rest of the hotel photos can be viewed on my Flickr album.

Ice Cloud / Nuage de givre

More new artsy things in downtown Montreal… This is kind of a follow-up to yesterday’s Place-des-Arts post, since the photos were taken just outside, on the same evening. I didn’t put everything together because I felt each place deserved its own post.

The location is called Place des Festivals and, as the name says, it is where several festivals (mostly of the music variety) are now held. It was also renovated recently and includes a long strip of sidewalk fountains in summer, as well as different urban art installations throughout the year (when there are no festivals). The following photos are of a display called Ice Cloud (Nuage de givre) which was set up there from December 15 to February 2nd, and consisted of rows of hanging water “containers” reflecting lights onto the snow at night.

My next stop at Place des Festivals? The High Lights festival in a week or two. More photo opportunities!
