Feed the Birds, Tuppence a Bag

After yesterday’s post, I think today calls for something a little lighter.  I took an early lunch this morning to do some banking before the line-ups got crazy and before the American/Canadian dollar discrepancy hit my road trip fund any harder.  And when I say early, I mean EARLY.  Lunch between 9:15 and 10:15am.

It was a brilliantly sunny and nippy outside, so on my way back I stopped to shoot some pigeons.  It turned out to be perfect timing since a nice, elderly lady threw them some feed right as I crouched down and turned my camera on.  All of these shots were taken with my 35mm lens, so those pigeons were extremely friendly and extremely CLOSE.  “If you take a dump on my camera….” went through my head at least once while they all flew about.

Banking… birds… I’m feeling very Mary Poppins-ish today.  Except that I spent my “tuppence” in exchange fees instead of feeding them to the birds.  This road trip is starting to feel a little more real all the time, even though we’re still a couple months out.

Hi! I’m Laura, a coffee-loving, outgoing introvert with a passion for motherhood and photography. This blog is an extension of who I am. I’m a mommy to three little boys, and I love to create and write. I’m also loud, tend to over share, and am a type-A personality in the extreme. I’m a little pensive and can be a lot sarcastic.  I believe that motherhood is something more than just to be survived! This is both a space where I share glimpses into my business and the photo shoots I do, and also my personal space to just write about whatever is on my heart. So grab a cup of coffee, come stay for a while and let’s get to know each other. 🙂
