    I left the tank in because it gave the place that rustic industrial look. In some versions I darkened it and removed some clarity so its there but not too obvious? The apartment was a difficult choice. It has a totally different look from the warehouse brick but I wanted to show some context for the building that it is part of a larger street. Ah, choices. Too many choices.

    Before, and after shot of the Edmonton skyline at Earth Hour. Kudos to the Law Courts for being the first to dim their lights. The Hotel MacDonald was about 25 minutes into EH before turning their lights out. GWB, Telus, ATB, and others had their roof signage turned off the whole time.

    The neighbourhood in the foreground did a smashing job....or not. The lights in those house were never really on in the first place.

    Lunchtime at Churchill Square today.

    Amongst the activities are a giant chess game, a couple of ping pong games, a massive lineup for Fat Franks, a well-attended zumba class, and the old blues guitarist with the silver jacket.

    I think it is parked next to a green space walkway for good. It's sort of between Campbell Rd and 142 Street. There was construction in the area so I can't be certain but something about this grader made me think it is here for retirement.

    Thanks! I was searching for a good place to get both the bridge with the fireworks and had been scouting all over the east end of Downtown and then drove by the groat road bridge by chance and saw a nice view of the bridge.

    Eh, sad to say but I've lost my mojo for now. Not been shooting much at all this year. That said, it was very nice to just sit and enjoy the show rather than focusing my attention on the camera.

    This is probably the last best shot I've taken of Edmonton, from March 10 this year:

    Thanks.

    I'm used to the annual 'winter slump' but this one is much bigger. I was very upset about seemingly having no passion for something I was fanatical about before, but I've progressed beyond that stage and am quite zen about it now. If it is to be, it will come back, if not, I had a good run.

    As you say, I'm just trying to enjoy life right now.

    Star trails are fun. I always do them on camping trips, as you're well away from the city lights already.

    As for lightning, I don't have one of those nifty lightning triggers so I have to just mash the shutter and hope for the best. Guy I know has the trigger, he comes back with FANTASTIC shots every time, with a minimum of effort.

    ^ That's what I do. I just set it on interval timer and let it do it's own thing. Then I can sit back and watch the show. Downside is: It's not a good solution for daytime lightning.

    Well that is what I do, just take shot after shot and hope a strike will end up in one of them. It's dumb luck. Human reflexes are much too slow, by the time you see the strike, react and hit the shutter, it's long gone. It's a good method for getting 100-200 frames with no lightning that look exactly the same.

    The trigger DOES have a fast enough reaction time to sense the flash and trip the shutter. With it, every frame you shoot has lightning in it.

    Triggers for lightning can go from around a hundred to a few hundred, on top of the camera itself. It's not a huge sum considering how much some of us have sunk into our hobby, but all the little gizmos add up. Heck, I spent $500 on a pair of rotating triggers for shooting time lapses with. Gotta pick your financial battles.

    The trigger is a separate device that plugs into the camera. They can vary from $200-$500. Sadly, not in a position to get one just now.

    Default Borden Park

    The sculpture above is not only very cool in my humble opinion it is also clearly successful. While I was there I saw numerous children playing around it, running inside it, and generally celebrating it. I lost count of the many people taking pictures of it with their smart phones. They all disbursed when I showed up with a tripod but they quickly returned again when I was done.

    Clearly street art has two (maybe three) components. It has to have a look that can be appreciated by those who live or visit here; it needs to be in the right location (the Tallas Balls are an example of the wrong location) and I would say it needs to be durable enough to handled the inevitable acts of vandalism and harsh weather.

    Default Washrooms

    After you have enjoyed viewing the new sculpture at Borden Park you might find the need to relieve yourself. Since this is not downtown you can't do that just anywhere so the City has provided this facility for you.



    It's very hard to photograph because of the reflective glass that is transparent from the inside. Too bad they didn't put this on Gateway and Whyte.
