If You Have No Wish …

If you have no wish, how can it possibly come true?

So on that note, I thought I’d share with you my wish list — it’s all about photography don’t you know? ๐Ÿ™‚


Things I’d love to photograph …

  • An ethnic wedding;
  • An RCMP in his/her red serge but in a completely relaxed way (like walking down a lone country road);
  • A military wedding or one in which either the bride or groom are in uniform (police, RCMP, etc);
  • A mother / daughter outing;
  • A father / son outing;
  • Any photo shoot where the guy(s) are wearing funky socks (bright colours, stripes, polka dots, anything outrageous);
  • Any creative getaway (dogsled team? rickshaw? hot air balloon? magical glass elevator? kayaking?);
  • A photo shoot (individual, couple, or a family) in a genuine old fashioned theme park with a roller coaster, ferris wheel, and a carousel ride;
  • A photo shoot in a genuine old diner, complete with jukebox;
  • Photographing “a day in the life” on a genuine working farm/ranch (especially if horses and/or dogs are also hired hands);
  • Photographing a horse or horses just before the sun goes down (if the horse was an Arabian, that would be like two wishes).

And anything that involves:

  • bold stripes or lots of dots;
  • costumes;
  • lit candles everywhere;
  • paper lanterns bobbing in the breeze;
  • cowboys, cowboy hats, Wrangler jeans, and real cowboy boots;
  • people at work (think of all the trades and hands-on occupations);

I also welcome fairy godmothers or godfathers who can help make a wish come true.

What do YOU wish for?

{I took this image last night just at sunset. There was an amazing rainbow in a purplish sky and enveloped in such a rich sunset pink. Sorry I didn’t take the time to remove the power line but you get the idea of what I saw!}

I always say, “Peace on earth, good will toward man” because I never want to really say. Saying what I want is too intertwined with …. so much and so many others. I couldn’t believe it when I saw your sunset pic.

I wish for a fairy sighting, sugared lilies, and snow in July.

Love the idea of the paper lanterns. I’m sure you would capture the magic of it! ๐Ÿ™‚

A stunning capture of the bee on that gorgeous flower. I like this a lot.

I had some of those flowers in a backyard garden until Zoli pulled them up:-) Never knew what they were, but they could withstand 100 degrees fahrenheit and full sun. Beautiful shot.
