Didn’t come down in the wind storm, so I guess it’s anchored properly.


Day 353 of 365

A complete make over for the store is conducted each year to decorate for the season and reopens for an evening of drinks & sampling of its fine imported cheeses, gourmet foods and fashion accessories.
These cheerful staff make the shopping experience personal and fun.

Day 352 of 365



Missed last week’s Photojournalism class due to high spirits and good food at the wedding.
The assignment dealt with capturing differences in shooting daylight versus night-light.
Standing at the feet of Samuel Champlain at Nepean Point, looking across the mighty Ottawa, to the government buildings next to the Museum of Civilization (or whatever it is in its reincarnation).

Bomber Command aviators

Bomber Command aviators & friends

The WWII pilots who flew as part of Bomber Command had a high mortality rate – 1 in 4 survived.

Karl and James, board members of Halifax 57 Rescue Canada (H57RC), have worked for several years to help bring their forgotten story to the public attention. Today, a copy of a remembrance wall was presented to Canada’s Aviation and Space Museum with some Bomber Command vets in attendance. The original is in Nanton, AB.
