Projects. All kinds of ideas have drifted though my head and occasionally I would make a half-hearted attempt to start one. Without a home they withered and died. One project had a home on Flickr, and was completed. I did a 52 week project, can't imaging doing a 365! But Flickr's path has diverged from mine so I am establishing this blog as a new home for my projects. Perhaps this way they will grow and thrive.
Please browse, comment, and enjoy.
Time to get 2015 under way, and maybe I'll manage to post a little bit more regularly. Went on an outing this afternoon with my "Hobos with Nikons" friends to shoot a pond hockey rink at blue hour. As it turned out my favorite shot of the afternoon was taken before blue hour really got under way.
I especially love exits like this where there is such a marked contrast between the inside and the outside. The beautiful old brick in the Starlite Room (which began life in 1925 as the Edmonton Salvation Army Citadel) contrasts wonderfully with the harsh green light of the entrance hallway.
Spent a gorgeous fall day in Hawrelak Park on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton. I had forgotten just how extensive and how beautiful the Edmonton river valley parks are.

With the past few mornings being misty I thought I'd try a dawn shot for this entry in my 360x50 project. The numbers that came up led me to the country SW of Millet, which is a good place to find misty mornings due to an abundance of wetland. The sunrise wasn't spectacular, but I think this photo gives a good feel for the moisty September morning.

Vacations are over and it is time to get back on track. Part of our vacation each year at around this time includes the photography competition portion of the Salmon Arm Fall Fair. My parents are members of the sponsoring club so I help out and to keep things interesting I enter some photos. This year I didn't have any suitable sports shots for the "Sports/Action" category so I thought I would put in this favorite from this summer's Beaumont Blues and Roots Festival. Concert photos don't usually do well in the competition but this time I got lucky and won first in the category.
