Self Portrait - Tax Deadline

Andy | Tuesday, April 30, 2013 | Best Blogger Tips

From July 2011 to June 2012 I did a 365 day self portrait photo project. It involved me taking a daily photo that include a part of me in the picture. It was done as a learning experience for camera and photography skills. Starting with this photo, I thought I would begin posting some that I liked more than others. Today April 30, is income tax deadline in Canada. I hope you can see the humour in this one.

For most people, we often marvel at the beauty of a sunrise or the magnificence of a full moon, but it is impossible to fathom the magnitude of the universe that surrounds us. Richard H. Baker

Air Force Graveyard #2

Andy | Saturday, April 20, 2013 | Best Blogger Tips

Continuing from yesterday's posting here's another plane that I believe this to be a CF-104 Starfighter. It entered Canadian service in March 1962. Originally designed as a supersonic interceptor aircraft, it was used primarily for low level strike and reconnaissance by the RCAF. Eight CF-104 squadrons were originally stationed in Europe as part of Canada's NATO commitment.

Air Force Graveyard #1

Andy | Friday, April 19, 2013 | Best Blogger Tips

The Markham Airport is located on Hwy. 48 about 5 km. north of the Town Of Markham, Ontario. The airport tarmac is also home to a few aircraft from the defunct Canadian Air, Land and Sea Museum. Most of the collection is in a restricted area and you will need permission to enter. This plane that I believe to be a Canadair CT-133 Silver Star can be found in an accessible area. If you wish to see the planes in person the Google map location can be found in the post footer below. PS: The original photo was taken on a very dull day and had very drab colours. So I enhanced it by popping the colours.

As Target stores continue their expansion into Canada they want to grab the attention of Canadians. This is not a mural. It's more like a billboard stuck on the side of the building.
