Everyday Moments: April 2014 – Part I

Apparently, I was so trigger happy on my camera this month; I really couldn’t squeeze everything that I wanted to share into one month.

Home Life

This guy -my roomy and cousin – is getting married in a month, which means I barely have one more month living with him. Crazy

Lots of mornings were spent with Chief and Talitha just romping around on my Saturday mornings.Everyday Moments April 2014| lorraineyeung-2

I’m not a selfie girl – but post walk with camera in hand I couldn’t resist the temptation to see what a self-portrait would work out through a mirror.

My youth ministry will be taking an indefinite break by the end of May, in the meantime, we’re having lots of fun, this particular shot was from one of the random hack-job Photo Booth shoots we decided to do.

Talitha window lit. For some reason, I really needed to know what the focal length would look like with a 50mm f/1.8 compared to the 35mm f/1.4.Everyday Moments April 2014| lorraineyeung-5

Truly Beautiful Skies

The skies were pretty dramatic early-mid April, days are getting longer, which means I actually get to visually enjoy some of the scenery, creation and sunrises and sunsets on my commute.Everyday Moments April 2014| lorraineyeung-6

You can’t really see it, but the town I live in is right in the flat lands of this valley.

My First Breaking and Entering into a Chalk House

I love how creative and imaginative kids can be. I arrived home one evening over the Easter break and saw that the kids had built some chalk houses around our street. Here’s Ocean the Vizsla walking over the kitchen stovetop – lucky he didn’t burn his paws.

I weighed the situation and decided that it would be obtrusive of me to break in and take some photos of their home. Pictured below is their laundry room.

The kitchen island and dining room. I love their open space concept.

And two kitchens tops. They’re clearly neighbours.

Afternoon Walks and Dog Romps

Talitha had a good evening romp around the yard.

Chalk was healthily scattered in the yard – perhaps they will grow.

Had a quick toy free lensing in the golden sunlight – just exploring what new treasures there are to be found.

Green is beginning to spring up from the ground.

    Seriously, I really enjoy your photos! Including the selfie! :) They are simply beautiful.

  • Your photos are gorgeous!
    And- selfies can feel weird/they may not be for everyone….but I never feel like they are self-absorbed or proud….I LOVE seeing photos of the lady behind the blogs that I read!

    • Haha, thanks so much Amy!

      Selfies are weird – I used to make a lot of them before I knew Christ just because I was so insecure about my beauty – and not I’m the other extreme :)

      Thanks so much for visiting :)

      Yes! Go freelensing, I’d love to see what you’ll come up with :D

  • I know right, there’s so much different kinds of landscapes in BC, from desserts, rain forests, beaches, mountains, glaciers, canyons, crazy! So fun :)
