Some recent pictures

I was walking around uptown Saint John on Friday and took a few pictures around Kings Square and the Loyalist Burial Grounds. Tonight I stopped along the Trans Canada Highway at Meductic to take this picture of power lines.

Turkey Vulture

I snapped these on the way home from work today. There were at least 5 or 6 Turkey Vultures in trees and in the air around the swamp. I wanted to get closer for a better angle of a young one in a tree but the snow was up to my waist in places.

Boats in Saint John Harbour - April 13 2008

I was in Saint John Sunday afternoon with my granddaughter Kayli looking for photos to take. Here is one I took from the boardwalk in front of the Hilton.

Walking to Work - July 2006

It has been some time since I have posted any pictures here. My excuse is that I am back to work after 2 1/2 years of retirement. Working and traveling takes a lot of what used to my camera time. I still carry my camera with everywhere I go and as the days warm up and snow melts I increasingly feel the urge to get out taking pictures.
Until that happens here is a picture from July 2006. It was a foggy damp Saturday morning in Saint John. I found myself and a couple of other photographers under the viaduct beside the harbour wondering if the fog was going to lift or settle in more. As is my custom when I am concentrating in one direction I will turn 180 degrees just to to see what is happening. I had but a second or two to frame this picture and snap the shutter before the person had moved out of the scene. I don't know if she was heading to or from work. That is Harbour Station in the background. The mood calls for black and white so that is what I converted it to. Hope you like it.
