My beau and I went to Harrison Hot Springs to try it out as a possible honeymoon spot and we loved it. Our plan is to tour BC for a week after our wedding and we definitely plan on making the hot springs one of our stops along the way.
It was so relaxing and beautiful.
Wow, looks amazing with that old bridge in the background, and Congrats, again, Meeshelle!

Where the heck is Shuswap Lake, British Columbia? It’s 335 km (208 m) northeast of Vancouver, B.C. in Canada. If you like details, we were at 50° 57’ 54” N x 119° 14’ 41” W. Or if you prefer, we were in the middle of a lake fishing and later on in the middle of a golf course up and down the side of a mountain. We went up in the last week of April, driving through some snow to get there. The first morning there was ice on the bucket outside of Tom’s lakeshore cabin. We caught some lake trout and several Kamloops trout, saw eagles, hawks, loons, swallows and hummingbirds, started a wood stove chimney fire and put that out without harm done, and helped Tom’s Mom get her gardens organized for spring planting. On our last day’s early morning departure we saw 22 deer on and beside the road before we got to the main highway. So, lots of fun and enjoyable memories for a week away.
Nice shots, sure looks like a beautiful area!

I remember the days when I scanned a playground and the only thing that caught my eye would be the swing sets. Nothing has changed, though I do find a field of luscious green grass much more appealing to spend time doing nothing on.
The adorable little girl in this photo is the perfect balance of precious and divalicious. And the pair of feet belong to a little boy who is just as sassy.
This photo makes me miss the days when a week without a scraped knee would be celebrated (I really like running around, on, and under things, like most kids).
I invite you to join my personal dare to play a game of Grounders the next time we come across a playground. I’ll let you know how it goes, and I would love to hear yours! I think it’ll be quite fun.

This one is 4″ (100 mm) diameter, the feet stick out a bit further. They are turned and carved from Maple.
These are my first carved feet. The local woodturners club (http://www.gvwg.ca/) challenge was to make a turned item with carved feet. Most of such feet are simple stands, but I tried something more complicated for fun.
This month’s challenge – handed out by the local woodturners guild – was to give our bowls something to stand on. Fittingly, my egg-cup sized bowl can now stand on its own two feet and run off with the chocolates…
Human Books…and no, you can’t take these ones in the bathtub with you.
I was more than a little confused the first time I heard about one of these. Human Book? What other kinds are there? It’s not like elephants have gotten into the publishing business, they don’t have fingers. Then I remembered that thing called ‘Internet’ and was enlightened.
Actually, human books are people, not paper bound volumes, that volunteer to share their life stories, as part of a program launched by the Human Library.
I haven’t had the opportunity to take out a living book yet, but I do love the concept. It reminds me that everyone has a unique and interesting story, and makes me appreciate what a rich, and diverse world we people (and the occasional elephant) live in.
Pretty cool picture, and a fantastic project!

The Treehouse by Dodie Goldney is about the creative life. I believe everyone has the capacity to be creative. I hope to inspire people to do more creative things and think more creatively. (Wow, I think I just wrote my mission statement).
I was just looking through old photos, pondering what I might post about next, and I found this pic of my toes, from February 3, 2005. I actually dated the photo. I’ve spent years photo-documenting the renos that now appear on The Treehouse. I don’t have that carpet anymore, but I actually was trying to get a photo of the pattern on the rug. I don’t know why I saved the toe shot, except that it MUST have been to send them to Toemail one day! I’m excited!
This photo was taken in the Treehouse, (my home), which is on the Thompson River in beautiful Kamloops, BC, Canada. I kind of like this one. It looks like my toes are totally photobombing the pic. Toebomb?
Like the patterned carpeting and fun shot!

So . . . being someone who always likes to keep busy I was sitting on the umm, er, ahhh – well let’s just say I was sitting in the bathroom playing with my new camera and I took this portrait of my feet – and nothing else!
That looks to be a great old tub! Nice shot.
And together they stand!

“Recently my beau proposed to me on beautiful Salt Spring BC. This shot was taken the next day while we were at the beach. I was trying to get a good shot of the ring and realized it might be a good shot for a toemail. “
Beautiful ring and great shot for a toemail! Congratulations and best wishes!

My vision is to create an art photo book of 1,000 photos of people jumping for joy around the world and a photography exhibit that showcases a select few of the best JUMPING images. The compilation of joy expressed by a variety of inspired people from around the world will create a unified community of joy, and I’m intending the experience to express the importance of joy in the lives of all people and to remind us that humanity can come together as one through the expression of joy.
If you are interested in being a part of this project, or are interested in funding or sponsoring the project feel free to send me an email. Please stay tuned as the project develops and like my fb page if you get the chance your support is greatly appreciated: Follow on facebook here
Probably the fastest jumping shoot of all time Alice and I rushed up to her buildings roof top in Vancouver, BC and shot off a quick batch of joyful jumps. I love this one.
What a great concept! Best of luck to you.
