Yesterday I took part in the aday.org photo project with a goal to show how interesting things in every day life were.
I started at 9 am and shot until 9 pm. My one on going part of the project was a mini project documenting the life of a tulip over 12 hours of light. I think it’s my fave of the day. I also walked down to Bowness Park, got some shots of a mother duck and her goslings, people walking their dogs and a couple of moms out for a stroll. After editing those I took to the highway towards Sibbald Flats were I met some Tree Swallows posing for a shoot, stalked a mating pair of Great Blue Herons but lost them before I could get a good pic (silly big truck driving by spooked them) and got some on the road shots. In the evening I went down to the Calgary International Chess Classic and got some shots of some of Canada’s greatest chess minds in play. And I ended the day back in my yard with my flowers basking in the warm night air.
