Ashley in Artemis by Moonlight

25 Apr

Art Gowns

Could you recreate a goddess on a mortal?

Well, I can on Ashley. She’s my great niece, and my Sherrie’s daughter.

She is not a model, but embraced the Goddess Artemis when she put on the “Artemis by Moonlight” Art Gown.

Stephanie, our official Art Gowns photographer, is away on assignment. As Ashley was only here a few days, I took the pics. Mini-me was thrilled with the outcome!

I am thrilled! What a beauty.

Young Goddesses just wanna have fun!

PHOTO OP: Ashley congratulates Belén Soto’s Black Drake on his upcoming wedding.

The above shot was in contention for the opener. Blow it up & see my dilemma. All the small pics blow up.

Sherrie’s Fairies

It had been our best muralling day, and then the fairies were a bonus!

Sherrie and I had done the Exchange District, the weather was gorgeous and “The Rocket” was purring like a kitten.

We head out to grab a Train Mural that had been obscured by a semi last time I’d been in the Peg. That’s when we found the Fairies.

Sherrie had to stay with “The Rocket” while I shot. She was cool with that, as she was idling by this graffed-out dumpster she fancied.

Even though it had been fouled by a giant tag, the mural was splendid.

Featured Street Art

11 Nov

Featured E - Magazine

Do we know when street art actually began?  It’s difficult to pin point, but “urban art” or “street art” had its humble beginnings in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.  Artists, such as John Fekner, Blek le Rat, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and others come to mind.  There are literally thousands of urban and street artists from around the world.


One of the most famous street artist known today is Banksy.  This anonymous street artist has become an urban legend in his own right.  Banksy is not only a street artist, but also a film maker, director and painter.  His film Exit Through the Gift Shop was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Film after its first premier at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010.

Banksy’s anonymity was chronicled in October 2013, when he descended on New York City for a 31…

MARVELous Post

Have you ever tried to take a photo of a faded Spider-Man, high up on a telephone post, with the sun in your face and a fresh new pole installation corrupting the image?

Well, this is the result…


Goal Post

With my crazy work schedule I’ve been unable to tend my blog so I set a ‘goal’ to have a post up before the end of April.

I present to you….Goal Post


I really ‘scored’ with these free tickets…



My beloved Jets lost but I won with this freebie commemorative puck…


 No playoffs this year but we’ll get em next year! ❤ my Jets

I’m deviating from my blog theme today so that I may throw a pity party for myself.


Just when you think it can’t get any lousier than living in the coldest place on Earth, you find out you’re even outdoing the solar system…


Sad thing is, that doesn’t even include the wind chill.  In my opinion, anything colder than -25c is unbearable so the fact that some parts of Manitoba fell to -53c is really irrelevant at this point.  Suffice it to say, it’s bloody freezing!!

As if having your lungs seize up and eyes freeze shut 2 minutes after being outside isn’t enough, we get a boatload of snow as the icing on the hell cake.   It took me 40 minutes to get my car out of the driveway this morning resulting in my being late for work, walking like a hunchback and a dud left arm.  I suppose I could look on the bright side and be thankful I still have one car since my primary car said F it, I’m shutting down for the winter.  I would have taken a picture of my good times this morning but I didn’t want to risk having my camera freeze (seriously) so I’ll have to articulate it with this picture…


I’m not quite done whining yet.  This is a picture of my front yard 6 hours AFTER my husband shoveled:


And here’s a picture out my bedroom window.  My camera works fine, you can’t see anything because it’s covered in ice.  Better than looking outside anyway and being reminded about what a loser I am for living here.


Okay I think I’ve vented enough.  This rant brought to you by your friendly neighbourhood whiner all the way from:

With the temperature dipping down to a cruel -37c tonight, my feathers are in a ruffle.

My only escape was to reminisce about my trip to Mexico last winter by going through my photos.  To my surprise, I happened to come across this lovely picture….



Picture taken by Sherrie Yager  –  Riveria Maya, Mexico  –  January, 2013

Having viewed all my Mexico pictures and still feeling like a lame duck, I decided to browse through my California pictures and came across another surprise.  Not sure what possessed me to take this picture but hey, it works…



Photo taken by Sherrie Yager  –  San Diego, California, USA  –  June, 2012

By now I’m flying high thinking I’m quite the cagey photographer so I carry on and find another gem…



Picture taken by Sherrie Yager  –  Falcon Lake, Manitoba, Canada  –  July, 2011

As I gaze out my window and see nothing because it’s covered in ice, I’m snapped back to reality.  Thus I come full circle and leave you with a bird’s eye view of this frigid city only a bird brain would call home in the winter…

I must flock off for now but will see you next year (if I survive the cold)!
