Today is a good day for birthdays.

Both my sister and Maid of Honour celebrate their birthdays today.

Wishing them a day full of love and laughter. ❤

Porte Photos’ Daily Quote: May 5, 2023

My life is full of drama,
and I don’t have time
to worry about something as petty
as what I look like.

~ Adele
English – Singer Born: May 5, 1988

Porte Ponderings:

Appearances may seem petty to worry about, but I’m certain Adele is lucky enough to have a team to worry about her appearances and brand.

Most of us can’t afford to have teams ensuring we look our best, but a good photographer can show you in your best light and help with professional appearances by providing excellent quality “head shots” and portfolio’s of pictures for your website.

With spring in the air why not book your appointment with Porte Photos to update those family pictures?

Only $50 for a 1/2 hour portrait session or walk in the woods.*

Porte Photos’ Daily Quote: April 27, 2023

I’m much more about the emotion
that a photograph provokes out of you
and less about how technically brilliant it is.

~ Nigel Barker
English – Photographer Born: April 27, 1972

Porte Ponderings:

So glad I bought an Ontario Provincial Park Pass for the 2023 Summer Season.

Kayaking on the Old Ausable Channel at the Pinery once a week is my goal for this season.

Turtles sunbathing on a log are always a favorite site for me. These little guys let you get pretty close before they slide into the water and out of view. I need to buy a manual hand held clicker to keep count of how many I see. Last year the record was 149 Painted Turtles. Maybe we can break the record. On my first kayaking trip of the season we spotted about 50 painted turtles and 3 Snapping Turtles.

Porte Photos’ Daily Quote: April 26, 2023

You have to go through the falling down
in order to learn to walk.
It helps to know that you can survive it.
That’s an education in itself.

~ Carol Burnett
American – Actress Born: April 26, 1933

Porte Ponderings:

Happy 90th Birthday Carol Burnett.

Thanks for all the laughs and smiles.

Thanks for being every woman I’ve ever known. My mother, my sister, my co-workers, my friend and myself. We’ve all had those moments of laughter and life. The compassion and understanding ❤

Porte Photos’ Daily Quote: April 17, 2023

They are all gone
into the world of light,
and I alone sit lingering here.

~ Henry Vaughan
Welsh – Poet April 17, 1622 – April 28, 1695

Porte Ponderings:

Last week we enjoyed July like temperatures. Everything sprung to life and this Robin found the best place in the yard to make her nest. Sheltered by the garage roof overhang and high enough that no one can bother her family.

She left the nest only for short periods of time and was very cautious when she returned to ensure no one saw her approaching. Her mate would cause a distraction when she returned.

Now we will be watching for the emergence of new life in her precious nest. ❤
