Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! Gobble, Gooble….

Samantha and I recently did some assignment work for Silvertip Golf Resort where we applied our landscape photography skills with some environmental portraiture. Some of our favorite images from the 1.5 day shoot are below. It was really great having two shooters for the assignment so we could handle different angles simultaneously. We don’t play golf (nor can we afford to) so it was fun having run of the course and seeing the big views from each of the 18 holes. Fore!

Well, guess what? Here is another men’s room photo. Maybe I should make a photo book of my Travels to Toilets? This one was taken at Communitea Cafe in Canmore. I love this little cafe not only for their goodies but they have great musical acts perform there. We just saw Lester Quitzau in Cochrane a few days ago and you can see by the poster that Lester will be at Communitea Cafe on Feb 4. Highly recommend! Dan Mangan plays tonight (Feb 3). So if you’re in Canmore, go check out the Communitea and stop by the washroom while your there… might be a photo op–you just never know!
