Washington DC

We've just come back from a week in Washington DC.  There's loads to see and many things that a visitor can see close-up-and-personal but the White House is not one of them.  The lower photo shows the view along Pennsylvania Avenue and the veritable fortress that keeps unauthorized vehicles from getting too close.  The top photo shows the view across the south lawn; if you look closely you can see a person on the roof and several tri-pod mounted devices there too.  Everyone is being watched very closely when they are this close to the presidential residence.

PAW Centre University of Alberta

Regular visitors to my blog may recognize this building because I featured some pictures of it toward the end of last year.  I was asked to provide some summer photos as well and recently returned to take this photo and others.  When the winter exterior photos were taken if was very cold, around -25C I think.  When this photo was taken it was +30C or so - a 55C degree swing in temperature.  Such is life in Alberta!

Encore Assignment at YEG International Airport

I first photographed this building at the International Airport in 2012; shortly after it was constructed. Now that the landscaping as grown in the owner asked me to go back and create some new images.  The building is the operational base ofr STARS air ambulance and the Alberta Health Services fleet of fixed wing air ambulance aircraft serving the northern part of the province.

Edmonton from the Air

I recently completed an air photo assignment the purpose of which was to record images of the regional health care facilities.  This is an aerial view of the Royal Alexandra Hospital from the southeast.

The site is bordered by Kingsway Avenue running bottom centre to the upper left corner, 101 Street running from bottom centre to upper right and 111 Avenue along the top of the frame.  The Hys Centre (red brick building) is middle right, Glenrose Rehab Hospital top centre and Victoria Composite High School is lower left.
