    If it makes you feel any better Jordan, our family also stayed in - with a 3.5 year old, a 9 month old who is sick, and two dogs, it can be hard to get out for fireworks. There is always next year.....

    It sure was a beautiful day though!!

    Had to work this morning and evening, but got to the park for ice cream and a concert during the afternoon. Took some digisnaps just to give the poor little Nikon D some excercise.

    Kitimat's shrunk since then and the valley is pretty much clear cut, but we're still perched on the edge of paradise

    Happy Dominion Day!

    Don't you mean Dominion Day?

    I had a very happy Dominion Day; I was up on Parliament Hill, at the Cenotaph and in the Market area of Ottawa, photographing. It's always interesting when you are stopped by a photographer, usually an older person, who looks at your cameras, and says words to the effect of, "Nikon Fs! I haven't seen those in years!" I had that happen yesterday no less than five times; it would seem that my two motorized Nikon Fs still command attention.

    It was a fine 4 day weekend

    A great holiday, that tends to move around in the week, year to year. This year I took off Monday, to let a 4 day weekend happen. Not a ton of things on the to do list got done, which makes it a fine holiday weekend experience.

    We motored up to my mom's and went off strawberry picking, as I have for some 20 years or so on this weekend. Now there is enough jam for her and my in laws for another year, and lots of frozen berries to mate up with the rhubarb I have put up already. A strawberry rhubarb pie made in the depths of winter sure does taste good.

    Canada day itself we spent in shade the back yard at an old friends house on the way back from Orillia., as the kids splashed in a small pool, and played on the swings, and with whatever else they could lay thier hands on. When it was time to go, we tuned the hose on them to clean them off, stuck dry swim trunks on them, and left them to sleep as we finished our trip back to the City.

    For the first long weekend in memory, I was not stuck in traffic either. Perhaps high gas prices can have an upside.

    Dominion Day was renamed Canada Day decades ago.

    I wandered around a local park for a couple of hours, shot a bit, but it was quite crowded.

    At night I did something I've never done before - attempted to shoot fireworks. I had some expired Agfa Ultra 50, so I used that with approx. 30s exposures at f/8. Have to get the film developed, I'm very interested to see how it will turn out.
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    Dominion Day/Canada Day

    Oh boo, yourself. Don't you have any appreciation for the traditional? Or are you planning to "go digital" as well?

    And who cares if a previous government abolished "Dominion Day" in favor of the oh-so-PC "Canada Day?" They also started us on the road to abolishing traditional values, such as freedom of speech and conscience. Don't get it? Have a look at today's headlines, if you still read a newspaper, that is. Or is that too traditional?
