365 - May 2014

Welcome to the merry month of May.

With the hope of more sunshine and rainbows (because of all the rain showers) I'm looking forward to getting outdoors more and pushing myself and my photoj skills even further than before.

Things to look forward to in May:
May the 4th be with you :)
Covering a lot more outdoor events (possibly even out on the water).
Shooting high school sports like baseball, rugby, soccer and track
Family birthdays - Hannah Rose and Ryan
Holidays - Mother's Day & Victoria Day
The start of my fastball season

The Kingston Humane Society and Gananoque & District Humane Society each received a cheque for $2,370 to go towards helping to pay for extra medical care or emergency surgeries, like the Skip and Barney fund.
