About my pastimes
I like to sew, and knit. In warmer months, I garden (vegetables and native plants), cycle, and keep busy on the property. When it snows, I take to the trails on my cross-country skis. I was involved in 100 Mile Manitoba and did the 100 day challenge in 2007.
About the photography
I share my recent photos on instagram and this blog (you can find others at flickr, picasa, and panoramio). I mainly shoot in .jpg (rarely .nef) with a Nikon D90 (Nikkor 18-105mm, Nikkor 50mm, Tamron 90mm macro, Nikkor 80-200mm, and sometimes an old Tamron 28-200mm) and Nikon P7100. I resize and crop photos in Photoshop and I retime my posts for the time the photos were taken. If you want more details about any of my photos, comment on the post and I’ll get back to you.
About the blog title, belvédère quelquefois biaisé
We all interpret the world in different ways. This photoblog shows some of what I do in my days and some of the world around me. But this may not be how other viewers see the same environment, leading to ‘belvédère quelquefois biaisé.’ belvédère is français for a (scenic) lookoff and biaisé is skewed, and thus, a viewpoint sometimes skewed.
This blog includes photographs from over eight years so enjoy exploring!
