While out for a walk to take photos at lunch today I encountered another artist on the street. Patrick John Mills is an international award winning poet and abstract painter. He was working on the corner of Sparks Street and Metcalf Street in Ottawa’s downtown core. It was -21 Celsius at the time, cold weather for some bare hands on those paint brushes. Check out his website, some really interesting and beautiful pieces of art there.
Had to retire the D700, she was a great camera but started to get up there in technology years. Bought a replacement body, D750, getting all the settings dialed in. The resolution is amazing, it is incredible how low light it can focus in. Some samples from this weekend.
This is the speed of emergency service at Calabogie Peaks. If you are ever injured on the hill pray that your help is this fast!
Took a walk at lunch yesterday and photographed some of the frozen things I encountered. The real irony of all of this ice is that the Rideau Canal, longest skating rink in the world, cannot be used yet.
