52 of 2013 - Week 27

52 of 2013 - Week 27. Picaboo's theme for the week is 'Photographing Color: Red, White and Blue'. My Focus 52 - Pixel Project theme is 'National Pride'.  The first shot is of a Maple Leaf pin - you can get these in any tourist area in Canada.  My husband got this particular one when he was sworn in as a Canadian Citizen, last autumn. Next are some shots of my Weeb.  The bottom two shots were taken at a Canada Day festival, from the top of a Ferris Wheel, with my iPhone.  I couldn't see what I was photographing as the sun glare was blinding.  They turned out pretty well.  And it occurred to me a tad too late that, oh yeah, I don't like Ferris Wheels.  We wore Canada Day shirts and ponytails with maple leafs on them to celebrate the day.  We had some blue cotton candy as a tribute to the blue part of the red, white and blue to honor our southern neighbors in the USA.  Today though, it's all red and white for us!  O Canada, we party at an outdoor fair on the hottest day of the year for thee!

Taken with my Canon PowerShot G12 (the fancy point and shoot), edited with Photoshop and PicMonkey.
