Lamont Grain Elevator

Lamont Grain Elevator, originally uploaded by photoMarkOnline.

I remember doing a summer photo series on Prairie Giants aka Grain Elevators in and around Alberta. Course that was back when I was younger and all the elevators where wooden towers. Nowadays these are the new clean elevators of the future. Not as many, bigger but do they have the character of the older Giants of the Prairies?

There was a small VW auto show at Churchill Square last weekend. While there was lots of colour and shine this little rusty baby blue 1961 VW caught my eye.

Part of the DREAM facade in front of the new extension to the Shaw Conference Centre. Not sure if I would call it a work of art or not but its an interesting picture.

Todays picture is from the archives, this one was taken at Capital Ex at sunset. I don't go on the rides but it looked like a great night for a spin... er swing.

Rigger, originally uploaded by photoMarkOnline.

Rigger is one of the new trainees in the Edmonton Dogs With Wings program that provides assistance dogs to disabled people. I was lucky enough to go along for a walk with 8 of the dogs and two very busy trainers. This picture was taken after their training day was done and they were cleaned up and settled down.

Had a chance to stop by the Valley Zoo in Edmonton today and one of the twin tigers was out in the sun watching some crazy guy race around outside his cage. At least it got his attention and I got a great picture.
