I did it! A year ago, I promised myself I'd post weekly and I did. This is the fifty-second post in 2012. One per week. I've made 220 posts since starting this blog. Yahoo!
It's all my fault
Toronto got 6" of snow. Niagara got 9". Peterborough got 6". Barrie got 6". Montreal got 18" of snow in the biggest one day snow fall in years. Ottawa is still getting snow. The snow was knee high in Bancroft. I got an ATV with a snow plow. We only got 2". I plowed both of them.
Rosa at her brother's place north of Bancroft on Saturday afternoon BEFORE it snowed! They got another 6" or more overnight on Saturday.

Another shot by Galya. Again Saturday before the big snowfall. Damned powerlines...
On Red Umbrella Road Christmas night.
No snow pictures to show you, so here's an out-of-focus Christmas tree...
So because there didn't seem to be anything interesting out there to shoot, I decided to finally set up my slide scanner and digitize some old slides. You listening, Bob? I did it at last! I promised Bob the slide scanner when I was done with it! What held me up was people telling me that it wouldn't work with Windows 7. Google is your friend... I found a workaround and even installed the new version of the Nikon Scan software.
So I thought I'd share some pictures from a "few" years ago. All of these pictures were on Kodachrome 25, 35mm. Depending when, I either shot them with a Nikkormat FTn, a Canon AE-1 or a pocket Olympus camera I carried in my ski pack!
They did have snow in December on top of Mt. Whiteface in New York. Oh by the way, this was in 1976!
I took this in Arizona in August 1972. Yes, 40 years ago!
A macro shot from 1971. I believe I used extension tubes and an 85mm lens for this one.
Somewhere in Colorado in 1972.
One more picture from the past to share with you:
Happy 2013 to everyone!
My wish for everyone for next year is that it exceed your expectations. I wish you all health and happiness in the new year.
