Real Estate

I've been thinking a lot about real estate lately. I don't like living in the same place for very long. We've been in our house for 3 years and I'm starting to get the itch. The problem is the traffic around our city. We are so limited because the husband works off the island and traffic to and from island is horrific. Anyway, a few blogs back I wrote about the houses that are located along the Lachine Canal. There has been one that I've had my eye on and it seems that someone has also had their eye on it. Renovations have been started on it and now I'm TOTALLY in love with this house. I have to have it. This has to be my next house, traffic be damned.

This is our house, which we really love, but it is getting time to move on. I haven't quite told the husband this, maybe I'll leave it as a surprise.
All summer I have been taking photos like mad, but now that I am about to start a photography course I have no desire to take pictures. The well is dry. Hopefully the desire will come back. I love taking pictures, but want more control. The husband bought me a Canon Rebel XTi for Christmas and now it is time to reign in the beast and learn how to use it. I think that I do take pretty good pictures, but it needs to be refined. My etsy store needs some really great new photos. I've been thinking about using real models for the t-shirts and I think this is the way to go.
I have to say that one thing that disappoints me about some blogs is the use of magazine photos. I will go to blogs and think wow look at these photos only to find out that they are from a magazine. I would so much rather see pictures that are you. I don't need to see a magazine life.
