Nikon D90

Nikon just announced the new 12.3 Megapixel Nikon D90 D-SLR. They claim it is inspired by the D300. What’s new with this latest addition? The key feature is that you can shoot both stills as well as video. Could be interesting, but I prefer to have a dedicated camera and a dedicated camcorder.

Niagara on the Lake

Niagara-on-the-Lake. August 27th – August 28th.

It’s 7:00 PM and the flight to Toronto is on time. Weather is beautiful, should be a smooth flight and a pleasant 1.5 hour car ride to beautiful Niagara (not to be confused with Viagara, I mean Viagra).

Josh Kelley, a talented songwriter/guitarist from Georgia, opened the night in front of over 11,000 fans. I’m not big on opening acts, but these guys rocked the Bell Centre. One of the songs played was the 2008 Olympics song which Josh wrote: We’re So Proud of You.

Sunny Day

This summer is really blowing by so fast. Come to think of it, with almost daily rain, this summer really blows. So far today we’ve had some sunshine – allowed me to catch a few shots. The squirrel was at Mom’s. Click Images for Full Size.

Jean-Talon Market

Supermarkets are certainly convenient, but you can’t beat the experience of an outdoor market. Fresh produce, specialty stores, good prices, variety, and photo opportunities.

The Jean-Talon Market, at the geographical center of Montreal, is a great place to visit, not only to do your groceries. Stop for a crêpe or croissant or sample some merguez on a stick.

Great produce, great colours and textures.
