Nik at the Track

Yesterday we spent the afternoon at the track, watching Nik race karts.  As it was Canada Day, there weren’t too many people, so the day was quick and very fun.  I managed to get a few shots, despite the fact that I forgot my standard card, and only had a 256 mb on me.  This meant I only had 39 shots I could take.  Actually, I really enjoyed this challenge, because it made me really stop and think about what I would like to shoot, at what angle, etc.  as opposed to just taking photos all over, and then sorting through a ton of them later on at home.  Here are some of the ones that I ended up coming out with.

Also, I found some old photos from last year at Easter, and loved this one I took of my grandmother.  I decided to change it to black and white, and I love the end result.  This is my Baka (Croatian for grandmother), my dad’s mom.  I’ve been very fortunate to have both my grandmothers around in my life, and couldn’t imagine being here without them. My baka is a hilarious woman, who really enjoys time spent with family around the dining room table talking, eating, and laughing; a lesson that I treasure every time I see my family.
