Wandering the backyards of Edmonton, you need to treasure whatever you see. It is changing so fast, either by the people or by the weather. Remember those flowers near the wooden fence that I posted here, they are all gone. This might be also gone next week. I call it "Abajour".

Old Buckaroo

I felt the strong smell of some sort of cream, maybe a bug repeller ? I don't know, but the man's hands were white from a cream and he was robbing more cream on his hands. He looked like an old cowboy to me, even though he was in the city. Maybe because of his hat ? I guess even if he wasn't a cowboy, he was from this city, Edmonton, which has a good deal of cowboy culture pumping in its veins. Well, he was kind enough to let me take a portrait of him. Then I showed him the picture on the camera LCD and he replied, "yeah, that's me!".

I dedicate this photo to "William A. Allard" whose book, the Vanishing Breed, has inspired me and it has a lot more for me to learn.

Just a technical note, if the photo is too pale, or too saturated or too dark on your monitor, it might be that I have edited this photo using my laptop LCD and again the old calibration problem holds.

Death Squad

I would like to call this photo "Death Squad". It was taken during my trip to a lake in Alberta, Canada. I am not sure about the colors and if they are weird on your monitor, it is probably because of my monitor calibration, which I cannot find a reliable way and a reliable monitor to do it.
