Sad News



I was so sad to hear the news of the passing of my blog friend, Tina and her husband in an accident.  She was a wonderful photographer.  I will miss her. Tina was known as EG Camera Girl. Her Blog is here East Gwillimbury Camera Girl. She was a long time blogger and her amazing photos will be missed.

    1. I looked at my first few posts on this blog in 2008 and Tina always posted a nice comment on here from 2008 and on.

  5. She was such a good blogger and left such kind and encouraging comments. She will be missed so much. I felt as if I'd lost a personal friend.

    1. Yes I feel the same way. I felt like I wanted to do something to remember Tina always. I was very shocked at the news and it made me realize that over many years of blogging and reading friends blogs each day, that we develop a relationship and we know them just as well as if we saw them each day. It is a special group we have here.

  6. Thank you for letting us know. Tina will certainly be sorely missed by me. Not only her photography but also the link to Canada, a land I dearly love. I have followed Tina's blog for many years.

  12. This is all a bit of a sick really - found out through FB. A strange set of emotions for somebody I had never met, but though that I knew just a little.

    1. Yes it is a trigger for all those emotions of loss. But more than that it is a loss of what more she had to give.

  14. Oh my. I read about this in our local news and had no idea it was her. Such a tragedy... I am stunned. I will miss her beautiful photos and the way she so freely shared her talents and love for nature. What a enormous loss.

  15. Hi Jenn, yes it was a shock. It has been some time and I am still upset. I look at my Facebook and there is Tina with her lovely comments and then I go to my album and there she has written encouragement and then I look at My Youtube and she was the one who wrote encouragement there. She has written comments on my various blogs for ten years. She was my Canadian girl and I thought we would meet. I guess we will meet on the other side now.
