December 28 2012

At present we would like anyone wishing to host have at least a 200 post count or have been active on POTN for a year. Hopefully this will reduce the number of people that do not participate in a timely manner, or "forget" to move Nifty on to the next host, or simply don't care.

Nifty is locked up for a couple of hours along with the memory card after today's outing. I'll be back with some pics later tonight. Thought I was kidding about the zip-lock bag huh!

Cool! I enjoyed your pics very much and would love to see your birth town.

Normalising temperatures is something I've never had to do with my gear in the past but with an upcoming trip to Nepal, I had better watch how they do it in Canadia.


Big dreams, small wallet.

Nifty has been passed from me to MOkoFOko. Traveling camera lens was a great idea!

A balmy -10C today with a few light flurries so I took the opportunity to take you into Town.

Under the Subway, up a slight hill, continue on to the right and you are onto our main street. Front Street, the street that started it all 100 years ago.
The business section is a whopping 4 blocks long.

This little guy is tied at one of the near-by residences. He's able and loves to come out of the yard to greet passerbys... he looks a bit icy but didn't seem uncomfortable.
Still, he was a distraction as I continued to photograph; thankfully he had been taken inside when I returned and I didn't have to go knocking on the owner's door as
I have before! (I should mention that the owner is not neglectful of this cutie at all, I'm just a bit on the overkill side with pampering my animals!)

I had a bit of a time shooting at a constant 50mm with Nifty today, I tend to want to go too close for this lens and end up not quite getting focus, as in this shot. I'm used
to using medium zooms for walking around as well and felt I was always too wide or too cramped at 50mm. Good practice though. (I've rarely used my own Nifty.)

The good thing about a small town is that there is always a lull in traffic where you can step right out into the middle of the road for a better shot!
(I cropped this one to an 8x10 ratio to get rid of the excess sky and road.)

I noticed the snow had been cleared off our little art gallery under the Subway so I strolled down there. This was installed in the Spring as part of the Centennial
Celebrations and one of my favourites. The old pictures were reproduced and weatherized in collaboration with a local Artist-Photographer and depict some of the
people and businesses who shaped our Town in the very early years. It's quite lovely, my images don't do it justice with the extreme lighting and reflection going
on. On the opposite walls are other works of community art.

My grandchildren missed out on this great Candy Store, but myself and my own children frequented it growing up here. The lady who owned and ran it has since
died and sadly the store itself burned down only a couple of years ago... more than you needed to know, I know. :)

Part of the fun isn't it... I really enjoyed exploring where Nifty had been before me from the info.
