January 26, 2008-Back in the saddle

Hello faithful reader.

Well, i have a couple of things to add to the blog this week.

First off, its been snowing a lot here over the past two weeks, and i'm getting some good shots towards the fall fair photo contest. Second, i picked up a new Tamron 28-75 F2.8 for my Pentax camera(s) today. So much for New years resolutions eh.

Thirdly, i'm back in the saddle for a bit longer. Had a load to escort to Sarnia Ontario this week, and next week 8 of us will be escorting 4 loads of windmill bases to Fargo ND. Yes i know i quit, but i guess the boss did not get my memo.LOL.

I also have an offer to do some inside work for a garage installation company. I'll do a day on the job when i get back to see if its something i want to do.
Sent my physical back to MTO, with the ok from my Cardiologist. If i get accepted by MTO, i'll have the bus driving job to fall back on.

Pictured today is an old rail car out side of the place i picked up my load to Sarnia. Converted to B&W Sepia in Lightroom.

Thanks for reading

January 11, 2008-Game On

Hello faithful reader.

Well, since this IS supposed to be a photo blog more than anything else, i will try and get more on here for ya'll.

This is a shot of the basketball court at our local park. It was shot in colour, but the B and W conversion gives it the dreary look i was after. The kids in town grip there is nothing to do, and look, no one on the court. Go figure.

Shot Jan 2 after a big storm and cold snap. -25 that day.

January 8, 2008-I can't see anything.

Hello faithful reader.

Welcome to 2008 and Happy New year. The weather has been a bit weird here lately. Went from -20 C to + 10C over night, and with it came a LOT of fog. Not unexpected with all of the snow on the ground and the warmer temps.

Something a bit different for me, photo wise. Here are some fog shots around the farm that we board our horse at.
