Yes everything has an end. It is going to be expensive year for our household. My DSLR camera broke down, appliances needed to be replaced, window and doors definitely going, and end of lease vehicle was returned back in November. I predict empty pockets by the end of June. My advice is to never buy items with same life expectancy at the same time.

Well, how can I have photo journal blog and no camera. With extensive research, heavy thinking about financials and one trip to the store – I got myself a new DSLR – Canon EOS 7D. Little more advanced piece of equipment that is, but I am getting hang of it.

Now, new blog platform – WordPress. I am saying good bey to Blogger. My new exploration of nature and culture in Aurora, of course with my new camera and my son by my side, starts here. I plan to write more and definitely explore more. Nature in Aurora will be my niche. Culture in Aurora will be something I am ready for. History will be fun to learn. Politics I will leave to the experts.

Hope everyone in Aurora enjoyed the Earth Hour 2011.

Willow Trees

Willow Trees, St. Johns Sideroad and Cliff Trail

This may be simple photo of the trees. However, I have noticed looking around the town, that lot of willow trees are falling down. Aurora is definitely planting lot of trees on the grounds, the question is how about the willow trees. Will this be end of willow trees era, or will they survive by spreading new shoots?
My second advice is to never plant trees with the same life expectancy at the same time.

I am living in Aurora and this is my photo journal blog. A picture says 1000 words - but not always, so I write. You don't have to travel 1000 miles to find a treasure - all I have to do is zoom through my lens and I will find it for you here in Aurora.


  1. Willow trees are gorgeous, but awfully messy, especially if they are planted near houses. . There used to be a huge one at the end of my driveway, and it was always dropping leaves and sticky sap and twice dropped heavy damaging limbs on my car during summer storms. Plus the roots love to twist towards water pipes.
