Happy Canada Day! July 1st is when we celebrate Canada’s birthday (152 years) and they maple leaf flies… fireworks and celebrations are happening. BUT… that’s not what I shot for July, ok one flag shot…
My roll this month was shot on a train trip, the Alberta Prairie rail line. Its a very old train on a once abandoned rail line that runs from Stettler AB. to Big Valley AB. and the rail cars range from 1910’s to 1940’s.
Sometimes the train even gets robbed! On our trip we were fortunate that we were not robbed (all money goes to charity) and my Grandson had a lot of fun… he loves trains!
The really neat part of taking a trip like this is until you experience it you have no idea how slow travel was all those years ago! Seriously cruising across the prairies at a whooping 30 miles per hour wasn’t a quick trip!
Our car was not economy (no seats and open air) but it wasn’t one of the luxury ones either… however it was a lot of fun.
This is a shot of the historic Roundhouse from 1912… or what is left of it.
The day predicted rain and was gloomy… so since I had not shot the Pentax MV and Kodak Gold 200 in overcast conditions… it was a good test to see how it performed. I wasn’t expecting much to be honest, but actually I was pleasantly surprised!
