BC Lions Fan Fest

So the BC Lions are in town for their training camp. So on June 4th they held their Fan Fest; signing autographs, interviews, a mock football game etc. So with the team around I went down to check things out. 197 photos later of the team coming out of the locker rooms was going to be a bit much to post each one individually so I made a GIF. Also it was a bit too large for Twitter.

Hope you like it!

Very cool!

Appears that my Canada Day 2012 photograph was chosen for this weeks Photography Week Cover!

They hold contests to be the cover photo via their Facebook page. For this round they were looking for firework photos so I entered and WON! I know I am not a professional photographer, and this is my hobby and not a business, but it is still very cool to get chosen; especially using my Canon SX40 Bridge Camera. I guess that makes me a published photographer now…crazy eh? The magazine is for iPad and iPhone and can be found on iTunes at: Photography Week.

Wrist unwrapped..

December 5, 2013 Leave a comment

So I got to take the bandages off yesterday and give everything a wash. Hard to believe this little cut has me off work for a number of weeks but I do not have any light duty options. Heck one day I physically picked up and moved over 4600kg/10,000lbs of product (I should be in better shape with all that). Stitches come out next week and I will find out what more I am allowed to do with the hand. Right now I’m not allowed to do more than wiggling the fingers and move my wrist. Doing things around the house with my non-dominant hand is a bit of a learning curve, but I am getting there. Since talking to a guy that had the same surgery but didn’t follow doctors orders I’m being very good about not using my hand. He is in worse shape now than before the surgery, all because he felt good enough and went back to work too early. Everyone seems to think this is a great vacation but being stuck at home not at 100% will slowly drive me (more) insane I think. But considering the weather as of late I guess I should be happy that I’m not out working in it.

So typing away here one handed as I am home bound for a number of weeks due to Carpal Tunnel surgery. I think the most painful part of the surgery was the darn tourniquet the had on my arm. Also there were some interesting sounds and tugging sensations as it was done with just local anesthetic. Was not able to watch as they had me laying down for the procedure. They were kind enough to double the dose at my request, as I seem to have a tolerance to pain medications and require more than normal, my dentist has my file tagged as a reminder even. Since my job has no light duty options I am home for the full recovery time, and of course I get my other hand done in the new year, so this is going to be a long process.

I get to take the wrap off tomorrow and get it cleaned up. If you want to see any of my new pictures I have been posting over at Flickr as of late: Digital Generator Photography (just a name, it’s not a business)

Okay this is taking longer than I thought, so I am signing off for the moment.

Yes, I am still alive…

If anyone is still following this blog I just have to say once again, sorry,  a daily blogger I am not…

I tend to find that life gets in the way of posting more often than not. That and I tend to not have much to say, at least not much that won’t get me in trouble… I have been posting a few photos over on my Flickr page instead of on here as of late. So if you want to see some of the new pictures head on over there for a peek:

Other than that it has been all work and some play. Big car show tomorrow in town so I am hoping to fill up the memory card(s) on the camera. Don’t know if the 37 Celsius weather will be all that fun on the blacktop, but you gotta do it now and then. Considering I work outside most of the time now I think I’m getting use to it.

Still trying to get into better shape for my Spartan Race in September. I’m doing better than I thought I would so far, but… I see many Burpees in my future…

Doing some push-ups here at the house and all I can hear is my elbows crackling as I work out…I’m getting old and those dang Glucosamine / Chondroitin supplements that I am taking are not doing a damn thing. Sound like a bowl of Rice Krispies® in the morning when I stretch…SNAP! CRACKLE! POP!

An Evening Drive…

Was out of town for a quick visit with family this weekend and took a few pictures from around a town I lived in for years. The odd part is I never really took many pictures while living there, so here are a few of them. I also went out and about tonight to see what I could find locally and had some success I think. But it is late and it is a busy Canada Day tomorrow so I am off to bed…

More HTC One pictures…

A few from today, not much time to find anything as I am at work and only try this on break times. Some days the HTC one camera does very well and others not so much. Today it was giving me some weird colours, I had to restart the camera app and the phone to try to get it working right. Still I am trying to see what I can capture with this phone…the experiment continues…
