Super Summer Photo Montage

Posted on

MAN the smoke this summer was terrible! The few days of clear, fresh air we made sure to make the most of it. We jammed out to Riverside Trail & tested out the Canyonaro (our new name for the stroller), played on the deck, and visited family in Alberta. I tried to add as many photos as I could here, but I also add all my shots to Flickr, as an extra back-up online to photos, so you can always go check them out there as well.

Coffee and Beans and Babies

Posted on

These coffee and beans images (below) were fun to make, mostly because coffee is such a well-loved routine in many peoples lives, but also because my little son “helped” me take them one fine sunny morning.

I set up my new picture box and got to work, and he roamed around our deck, annoying the cat, chewing on all the things, and wanting me to pick him up, only to be put back down again. He loved the sound of the cameras clickclickclick and watched closely whenever I moved the camera around and dutifully held tight to the tripod.

wild roots artwork and photography

Holy smokes, I have been up to a lot lately.

I have been having a blast making cool designs out of vintage images and turning them into t-shirts or home decor.  In the few hours that my Baby naps, I work on these designs, or some of my writing (more below on that).

 

Redbubble has all the designs and illustrations.

Threadless has all my clothing

And I still have all my Landscape and Lifestyle Photography over at Society6.  This store has so much fabulous home decor items, like pillows, totes, blanket’s, rugs and clocks.


My writing is slowly, slowly improving, and I have been making a writing/art project.  It is a newspaper based in a fantastical, magical world that is hidden from normal, non-magical humans.  The paper is called The Cunning Crow, and it reports from the city of Umbra, a hidden place in the hills South West of Kamloops, British Columbia.

Issue 1 reports on The Death March Migration, Mountain Giants and how to keep Running Roses from terrorizing the neighbors yards.

Issue 2 reports on the Shadow People attacks, and interviews Hades and Calliope on their new business venture.

All the ads are created by me, and I include explanations that really help people understand the world.

I have also been writing a thriller/murder mystery. Its still developing, but I have been really enjoying fleshing this story out.

It’s about an 18 yr old who is trying to start her life again after her parents death, but finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery in the new city she moved too. I’m wanting to make the city Kamloops, but a made up Kamloops that is a massive city instead. We’ll see.

I joined the Camp NanoWriMo, which is a great source if you need encouragement, reminders and a fun way of tracking your writing numbers.  Make sure to donate to them because they do a lot of work for kids, schools etc, and NanoWriMo in November is amazing, and you can meet so many wonderful authors this way.

Anyway! Hope your days have been wonderful and productive this summer too!! thank you for stopping by and/or reading my work!!

Cheers~ Trish

Sunday Short Stories

Posted on

sunday short stories 2Sunday Short Stories is a weekly Random (because New Bebe) post that shares some of the best short stories out in the ‘verse.  So grab a coffee, settle deep into your favorite chair, and enjoy the escape.

 


Today I am giving you something a little different; a true story.  This is an enlightening article from Maptia, about The Kingdom of Bantar Gebang.  Sometimes we need to give a little- money, time, a re-tweet about a good cause- whatever you can do, and this story needs to be shared.  If you are so inclined, follow Maptia, as they produce astounding photo-stories and will give you so much more knowledge of places around the world.

LOGO Cunning CrowThis next item is a shameless plug for my new writing project, The Cunning Crow.  If you love reading Fantasy and Sci-Fi you might like this! It is a fantasy fan-fic Newspaper, reporting on fantastical news from a city hidden just outside Kamloops, BC.  Please take a moment to go check it out! 

Lastly, This is a re-telling of the Snow White story, which I rather liked, but, then again, who doesn’t like re-tellings of fairytales?
