Outside my House

Cameras are cool because they help you to manipulate light and pull beauty out of the most mundane. Normally a very dirty time of year as the snow begins to melt, these shots were taken March 26 outside my house on a brisk Tuesday evening at 9:45.

New Years Eve in Edmonton

I saw 2012 out with a lot of walking. I made my way to Churchill Square for a brief visit. I didn’t see any bands, but there was a cool looking stage set up, and loads of kids running amok around some lights that were vaguely reminiscent of Miami Vice.

Great lights, no band. At least not while I was there.

After a brief hang with the locals, I meandered up 124 street for a stroll. Although activity on the street itself would indicate evidence to the contrary, it’s nice to see 124 starting to show signs of life: three of the restaurants along the strip between 107 ave and 108 ave were buzzing with activity.

The best place to be, however, was back home where the Aug was sleeping soundly with his mom.

A couple of houses over, they really get into the spirit.
