Scott Jarvie440,603*POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURES* It's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight. _This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event._ *SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINK* It's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all. You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums. Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to. *BENEFIT* Well it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most.  I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion. _*To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks like*_ *ON AIR* This will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout. I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing. If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't. *SPECIAL GUEST* Because I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things  I will have my good friend and great photographer @109486822103622036238 on the show to facilitate the discussion. She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well. We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access. *DIRECTIONS* 1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery 2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album 3.  *IMPORTANT* If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video. 4. Make sure the album is Public access 5. Add @100962871525684315897  @109486822103622036238 to your circles 6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites. *IMPORTANT* It bears repeating: _If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video._ Do not post a link if you are not ok with lots of people visiting that link in addition to us and are not ok with it being on video as well.Share your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00142

As you may (or may not) know, my husband organized for us to go to a concert last night. We went to see Canadian singer/songwriter "Old Man Luedecke" in a restaurant here in Chilliwack (Bozzini's). It was a backroom with about 30 seats, and those were crammed. Barely bigger than my living room, but amazing acoustics. I had never been there before, so you can imagine my surprise when I realized we'd be sitting about 4 feet away from the "stage". We were so close that the 56 mm lens I brought turned out to be too long.
Old Man Luedecke was nominated for a Juno again this week, and hopefully he can scoop up another. The show was amazing. If you love banjos and fiddles and guitars, music that makes you stomp your feet, paired with amazing vocals and beautiful lyrics, I recommend you check him out.

Last weekend I helped Thomas making a model for the drive-in theater from the book "The Outsiders". I think we did ok. It was a lot of work, but also very rewarding. The character from the movie "Cars" were starring in our model. And of course, not to forget the paperclip chairs.

But when the movie comes out about John Scott, and how he was voted into the All Star roster by the fans although he wasn't "eligible", and how he then even became the All-Star Game's MVP, I'm going to watch it. Even though I already know that it has a happy ending. Or maybe because of it.

Ok, questions to all resident scientists: Can someone translate this for me to a more malleable English a boneheaded German can understand?

In this case of home made crystals from household materials, what is the "Independent Variable", and what is the "Dependent Variable"? I am sure I misunderstanding something. Or rather. I don't understand anything.

Last night at the G.W. Graham Middle Secondary School Football Awards ceremony, my son Thomas was awarded the grade 8 trophy for the player with the most heart... and all I did was smiling from ear to ear, and clutching my hands to my heart, barely breathing while my son was walking up to the stage to accept the award. Then thundering applause (mostly from me), and more smiles, and as he sat back down I'm thinking what a great kid he is, and what proud moment this is, and what an asshole I am for not even thinking of taking a picture to capture this proud moment for eternity.

It's pretty sad that in this day and age, where companies have to publish ingredients on the product packaging, a company still chooses not to publish those ingredients on the product's web page. However, it's even sadder when I'm not even "allowed" to publicly ask on their Q&A page what the ingredients are...
Seriously? What'd you put in this blush? CYANIDE?

Week 1: Self Portrait "Coming up for air"

Yes, I actually am doing a 52 week project this year. +Sara Clausnitzer made me do it. I'm so bloody busy all the time, and when one has to be creative for a job, creativity is sometimes hard to come by in your spare time. So the 52 Week Photography Challenge initiate by Dogwood Photography (who's behind it? Not sure...http://dogwood.photography/52weekchallenge.html), is a welcome change to the dreadful challenges. Why? You get a theme each week. This week, it was a self portrait.

About this photo:
Last night, asthma reared its ugly head once more. After almost 8 years believing I was symptom-free, I was reminded that you don't just get over asthma. A doctor's visit and two inhalers later, I hope I'll get it under control again.

Photo taken with Fuji X-T1 and 56 mm at f1.2, natural light,... mehr »

It's the last day of the year. Time to reflect about what I experienced this past year, and about what I will do to improve in the year to come. Time to...

Such a load of $%&.
Looking back was never one of my strengths. I make decisions on the fly and then try to learn from what comes out of it, good or bad. Looking back only leads to heartache, regret, and depression. Or it leads to pride, entitlement and ego, which doesn't really add anything to the person I strive to be. So "looking back and reflecting upon the past" is out of the question.
How about looking forward? I wish I could say that I am someone who is positive about the future, but I'm not. I worry about what may be. I fear sickness and trouble, and all kinds of reasons to not be happy and positive about the future. So do I want to look forward? Not really. That's out of the question too.... mehr »

I say, let's enjoy the moment. This moment. Today. Let's stop with the looking forward and backward and let's just look down on our toes. Do they look alive? Can you wiggle them? Perfect! That's all you need. Look around you. Not forward. Not back. Take in what you see, and just add it to your day today. Today is what we need to celebrate. Not what we hope may be. Not what we experienced, but what it made us become. The person we are today.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy NOW. ___

The Great Earthquake of 2015

I was there. I felt it. I had just gotten comfortable with my book, but the bed was shaking. Was that the cat, trying to jump up on it? Our kitten isn't THAT big. Then the closet doors were rattling. THAT WASN'T A CAT! I jumped out of bed and ran around frantically. "Erik, was that an earthquake??" Wasn't I supposed to stand in a door way? Lay in the bath tub? Where is a desk when you need one?? My husband just looked at me dumbfounded. I ran downstairs, ready to go outside. Then I remembered I had a child, sleeping in his bed. I ran back upstairs and shook him awake. "Earthquake! Get up. GET UP! Let's go!!" He staggered out of bed, and followed me halfway down the stairs, not even awake yet. "What are you doing mom? I'm going back to bed!" and he turned around. I felt helpless.

Yes. We are completely unprepared for the big one. Never mind the food and water that are stacked in my emergency preparedness kit in the basement. Mental preparedness is what I am lacking.

Last night we went on our annual tour of Christmas lights. Boy, some houses are decorated to the nines. It put our two string of lights to shame.
This morning it was all about preparing for the fondue tonight. Well, everything is almost ready. The gifts are wrapped, the sauces are made, the kitchen is clean. Now to watch "A Christmas Carol" and the Christmas special of the Penguins of Madagascar. And later tonight, fondue dinner. Then for the first time since I am in Canada, we will open the presents like I'm used to from back home in Germany. It's just so much nicer to do it at night, with the tree shining, and the fireplace going, with the snow falling quietly outside.

I wish you all a wonderful Christmas eve. Enjoy the lights and the feelings, and the wonders of this magical night. May you be blessed with joy and serenity, tonight and all through the year.
