Crazy posters and windy days

Okay, I just had to upload this picture. I could see it from my boss's window and could already see the crazy in it. At lunch time I stepped out to grab a photo. The pug with an afro kind of reminds me of when the Rock did that one movie with one. I don't know why.

But enough of the crazy posters. On the weekend I had Louise out for another walk along English Bay and the wind had really picked up. You can see in the photo that the water is a dirtier shade of brown instead of the usual blue or green. That, and the waves are being whipped by the wind to the point where we actually had some sea foam in places. I haven't seen that since being on the east coast. Somehow, all those tulips survived and were not blown out of their roots. Other than the wind, it was actually quite a nice day and when we went out later to celebratemother's day (by having sushi at Shabusen) we had to dress quite a bit warmer.

All in all, it was a pretty darned good day.

You have a wonderful camera, those pictures are so clear. I've been there once and my pictures are nowhere near as sharp.

Required Louise comment ;-)--she is so adorable in the last picture.

We tend to not spend more than about $150 on our digital cameras so the one I have is not really that fancy. I use a Kodak EasyShare V1003 that my wife gave me for Christmas but keep in mind that for every photo that makes it on the blog, there are a dozen (or more) I cannot use.

One gripe I have about it is that I find the camera to be slow - if I take a picture, I have to wait for it to be ready for the next one. But yes, as you mentioned, the pictures are clear and sharp, so I put up with it. :) This is also the first digital camera I have had that takes a decent picture at night, and I have been having a lot of fun with that.
