Photo Finish Friday

Playing with my food :)

PFF is the brainchild of my cousin Leah over at The Goat's Lunch Pail.
Have a good weekend all.


Photo Finish Friday

OOPS! I don't know what I did with the first roll of film, but it didn't turn out, or at least the lab didn't think they did. In spit of being told they were dark shots. You can see the moon on the negative in about three shots, the rest of the film is pale grey except for a couple of sections that are medium grey. Oh well, at least they were kind enough not to charge me for it. Lets hope the other roll turns out when I am finished with it.

In the meantime, I took this with my digital while I was playing with the film camera.

Sadly the zoom on my camera, while amazing, is not the same as my friends Nikon, there was so much detail looking through that lens. Well, I will try again.

Have a good weekend all.


Lest We Forget

Some of you may have already seen this and the website it's on. I thought it worth running today.

Standing Strong & True (For Tomorrow) Official Music Video (HD)

Please take a moment to remember our armed forces, past and present. If it weren't for the dedication with which they serve, we would not enjoy the freedoms we have today.


My Town Monday: Rollin', Rollin', Rollin'...

Wow, it has been awhile since I did one of these. This post was inspired by a wonderful photo taken by someone else. I wasn't aware this was going on on Saturday or I might have tried to go there myself and take a photo or two. None of which would compare to this:

Cattle and AGA

Darren Kirby kindly allowed me to post his photo and a link to his Flickr page. I think y'all should check out the rest of his fabulous photos.

This was the cattle drive through down town Edmonton. I just love the juxtaposition of the cattle and the ranchers on their horses, against the new and ultra modern Art Gallery of Alberta.

This marks the start of the Farmfair Agricultural Showcase here in the city, which is held in conjunction with the Canadian Finals Rodeo. Yep, we's cowboys here and we remember that before there was oil, there were ranches and farms. Of course, if we keep building the way we are going, there will be no place for the cows or the crops, but, such is progress?

So, from the 5th to the 14th of November, if you visit Edmonton, you'd better bring your boots and hats, or you will just blend in with the rest of the city slickers.
