Alberta – My Photography Journey!

Lesley Carter from Bucket List Publications  http://www.bucketlistpublications.com is travelling to Alberta later this week. She recently put out a call for people to blog about their travels to this incredible province. I will do one better!

Now as an adult, we are so lucky to have this beauty right in our own backyard (well almost, it is still a bit of a drive).

So how did she do it?

Lizzy originally trained as an accountant and got a ‘proper job.’ “I’m not even that good at maths’ she laughs. “Like many people you end up in a career, you earn this money and you get channelled and things don’t maybe feel quite right and you just keep going and going.   I got to my mid to late 30s and…
