Renge’s Frustration & Christmas Illuminations

Hello! Hope and trust that everybody is behaving and not stirring up negative happenings? Everybody being polite and courteous to gain extra positive karma in life? Or are you aiming to get coal under your tree and stockings? 😛 Well, I got Renge images of when she was being a bit…sour. I also ended up getting a few Christmas decorations from around the city and planning to get more, hopefully.

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Renge’s Winter

Ah! It unexpectedly snowed overnight. I was simply expecting it to be extremely chilly with the freezing rain warning, nothing more. Though, without missing a beat, Renge took off to explore the new fresh snowfall that snuck it’s way onto Ottawa’s ground. I went to explore the scenery as well, as to show the second snow fall of the year.

Enjoy the images!

Happy white (not so) Halloween night!

Autumn is quickly shifting into it’s final messy period. Plants are dieing, going into winter-mode, or simply letting go of their leaves. The winds are also picking up causing quite a bunch of leaves to be blown about. Anybody have a kite? It also decided to snow 5 cm the night before Halloween.

Trick or Treat! – Halloween – Figma & Shinki special

A few more days till Halloween! With the days quickly counting down to Halloween, my Figmas and Shinkis were quite estatic that they kept holding various meetings and mini-parties every few days. They ate snacks, fought one another, pigged out, and gained new gifts to use! Costumes? Sadly, none for all.

Shinki Benio’s Outdoor Adventure

To give Benio’s her deserved respect here is an article for her ^^.
After acquiring Benios, she wanted to explore the vast and foreign area around her. With Benio being my first ever Shinki I thought I’d also assist with showing off how she articulates and the like in an outdoor setting. Feel free to consider this as a part of a review if you want.

Enjoy the photo-shoot!

Animated Ottawa – (P1)

Thought I’d try something new  with my camera. Might not be new to other serious photographers, but its new to me as I only used it once before during Winterlude 2010. I’m talking about using burst mode in an active location with your camera, then animating it into an animated .gif. I hope you find it to your liking. Oh, and since I added 13 gifs you may experience an internet slow down, or browser lag, depending on your computer set up. I apologize for that.

I also had Saber and Optimistic Penguin‘s blog mascot join me on the experiment as well.

Canada Day/Independence Day – Long weekend

With Canada Day being somewhat prolonged into a long weekend I thought I’d extend it into one more article. I would also like to take the time to wish the Americans a Happy Independence Day! We get to celebrate our nation’s birthday in a short period of time. I’m merging Saturday and Sunday morning into this article as there aren’t that many pictures.

Spark’s Rib Cook-off w/Figma Ein

Ottawa holds a Rib Cook-off every year for a few days for locals and tourists to try out. I decided to give this event an article this time around because I didn’t give one to it last year. I also encountered Ein on Parliament Hill where I tried to eat my chicken and ribs in peace.

5.5 Earthquake hits Ottawa

Canada, Ottawa had a nice rattle at 1:40 pm-ish that caused a few windows to break in downtown Ottawa. I was in my room during that time simply chatting on figure.fm when everything in my room started rattling worse then when a furniture truck rumbles by near me.  I screamed “Earthquake!” on the chat heh.

(Sidenote/Disclaimer: I’m aware there are worse earthquakes out there that actually kill. I’m not trying to dramatize, just simply record “interesting”  events within my life.)
