I’m in Calgary, my second home, right now. I come here a lot because my son and his family live here and I always have a blast while here! I always get out and take some pictures while here (besides the ones of family), and this time is no exception.

My son took me to the cars shown below a few years ago and we went back to them yesterday. The cars were originally from around the 1940s, meaning that they have probably been in the water for  70 to 80 years. I would love to know the story of how they got to this mountain location with no road access, where they were left to rust and fall apart; making them the perfect spot to get some interesting photos.

I’m sure it would be an intriguing story!

Here’s a few of the car photos that I took:

The sun was out today and Annie, the dog and I wandered around on the hillside and found crocuses and a few other treasures!

I love being here in Calgary with my son, daughter-in-law and grandson! It’s like having a second home. I always manage a trip to Edworthy Park, which is along the river, to take some pictures and today my son and their dog came along with me.

One more day here in Calgary. I’m thinking of going to the mountains and taking some pictures there.

I’m in Calgary looking after my grandson and taking care of the animals; namely 2 cats and 2 dogs. I brought my dog, Taylor with me, which has caused a few problems with the cats. But things are under control, or rather Taylor is. Under control, meaning tied up or kenneled whenever the cats are near. And Annie, the dog in the first picture, is best friends with one of the cats and she is protects her feline friend at any sign of trouble. It’s so sweet to see this adorable  dog get in front of his cat friend when she thinks Taylor is getting too close.

I went out shooting today. First to a dog park and then to COP (Calgary Olympic Park) to take pictures of the new complex that the National Hockey  Team is practicing at.  Here are some of today’s photos.

I love this one of Annie driving the car. If you look closely you can see Taylor’s ear on the other side of the steering wheel.

My favorite from today is an iPhone picture taken with an app called Slow Shutter. I’m having a great time trying out different cameras and photography editing apps on my phone.
