Le rouge - le rose et le chat

I experiencing dresser's block these days - I have a huge walk in - a girl dream but i never know what to wear, well... i could know what to wear I just don't plan ahead- I guess too many things to do and these days spending the evening on the veranda with Mr D - Summer is so short here, you have to enjoy every minute of it, so i guess i have to let go some stuff, like what the heck will i wear tomorrow which is not a good thing because it could be a great source of stress especially when you rush in the morning like i do - evey minute counts! - but somehow i manage - i have the initial small panic attack then I breath deeply, concentrate and finally ask Mr D if he likes it, not that it has to be approved by Mr D, no, no!! Mr D has excellent taste and will tell me if it works or not...lets say Mr D is my savior:)and will not go out looking funny...you know what I mean !

I like in those pics the color combo- I changed the shoes and belt when i got home - It is all thrifted - i especially love the belt and 60's shoes - i found these shoes at Le Village des Valeurs in almost sheer desperation. I was looking for shoes to complement a certain look and here they were that day just waiting for me!

Also in the pics my cat - chou chou - it was an abonned cat, it happens a lot in Montreal especially in July when everybody moves here.

All the pictures were taken with a Pentax reflex and then transfered in my IPOD and treated with Camera + - this APP is fantastic!



Enjoy the pics - Ariane

Bike Gear or the Night i went out cycling with Mr D

Bike Gear or the night i went cycling with Mr D

I just love cycling; it always felt for me like flying, funny I know- must be the wind in my face. Cycling is one of the sport I like best – It is one of the best way to stay in shape - The cycling path is just 2 minutes away from my house so no excuse to get on that bike of mine – M favorite destination is the Old Port in Old Montreal, only 20 minutes away from my house – The cycle path runs along Notre Dame where you can see the St-Lawrence river – While on Notre Dame you can see also La ronde where you can actually ear the people screaming in the scary rides, something by the way I will never get on I used to when I was younger after a lot of convincing, but now I am certain that I will not survive if I ever was on a rollercoaster, anyway this not the point of this post – After Notre Dame we got on René Lévesque Blvd then Berri street et voila Old Port – I just love to be near the water – just to be there and enjoy the view of the St- Lawrence River, Habitat 67 and all the cool sites – No wonder the tourists like it so much –

Mr D took the pics in the Old Port – this is was my bike wear – Gap overalls dress thrifted – tank top from Forever XXI – shoes from Payless -

After taking pictures we went to Chinatown for supper – got home after that – I had a wonderful evening with my Mr. D!

Ipod Nation 8

I love people watching – I love street style - I love people who just wear that special something that makes it special – I love stylish mature ladies – I love off the top youth – I love the old lady who dares to shave her head or wear those crazy colors and wears to much jewelry – it is all about expressing yourself – letting the world know that you own it for a moment – You decided that you would not look like everybody else –

I also love all those people who say -yes of course take my picture and show the world !

As you know I mostly take my pictures in the subway stations – on buses – my favorite stations are Berri and Lionel Groulx –because those stations make the connections to all directions they have such a variety of people. There are so many shots to be taken, could be a full time job! Oh God I wish! But not complaining, my life is good.

So here are some pics again I took with my Ipod and Camera + – I take the back as you can see – the reason? – well you have to be quick and asking them if you can take your picture will need explaining plus they wait for subways and buses consequently they usually do not have time…but I figure that taking the back of people makes a statement anyway as you can see in those pics.

Enjoy - Ariane

That Seventies Dress

That Seventies Dress –

This dress jumped at me as soon as i entered the shop – This dress was for me – the fit – the colors – the fabric - I was in love – it is rare to find such a piece at Renaissance but it happens!
It happens when you do not expect it – like love - you never know when it will happen -
But when it happened you can not wait to tell everyone, to show the world!
This is how I feel when I find that special piece of clothing – I found the dress at Renaissance on St-Hubert Street –
Consequently, this fabulous dress needed a special photo shoot – I was fortunate enough to have a photographer that day – Stéphanie which I thank a million – Stéphanie is my son’s girlfriend – A very special girl that we all love – well - the mother that I am just like her so much !
These pics were taken with my Pentax reflex and then treated with Camera + in my Ipod – I often use my ipod for quick outfit shots - I have my camera back so it will be a mix of ipod and Pentax reflex – Ipod is easier to carry around and does not need a set up and I have someone who can take the shot for me!
I will be posting soon pics of people I see in the subway and bus and last week I was fortunate enough to get some pics while I was downtown and walking around my neighborhood.
I am a little shy to ask to photograph people so this is why I shoot the back of people – Less questions ask- but I am beginning to ask again – people usually say yes but once and a while you get a definite no.

Enjoy those pics!

It was all about fathers - grand fathers - father figures - this weekend-

Those fortunate enough to have their fathers it was time to cherish, love and admire those men who means so much to us.


Mr D was love, cherish, admire this weekend - his grand kids and kids showered him with love and special gifts
Mr D was speechless - Mr D shed a tear or two - Mr D was touched - and he deserve it - Mr D is the most loving man I ever met -



My father was here with us - i was never close to my father, but as the years go by i realize that there is someone that is worth knowing -



We had a BBQ, laugh, talked, eat, everyone left happy! Special Mention to Uncle George and Margerite - there are so sweet the day would not have been what it was without them!



These pics were taken this week with my ipod and treated with the app Camera +

Inspired by Frida -

Inspired by the essence of Frida Khalo - One Mexixo most important artist who all her life was faced by tragedy -

Just love her subjects, her colors - her...

Finally got sunny in Montreal but for how long? Oh well lets smile! life is great!

My outfit is thrifted - i got the skirt at a garage sale in the Mile End last year - I think i paid 1$- and the top was bought at Renaissance - one of my favorite vintage store in Montreal - Soon would like to visit my favorite vintage boutiques in the Mile End -

In the meantime keeping fit with yoga and power walking - feeling that i am getting seriously in shape -




The pics again were taken with my ipod and treated with the App Camera +




Enjoy
