Edmonton is one of the largest northern urban centers in the world. Located in Canada, Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta. The city has a strong history as a trade center, and it served as the last major stop for the Klondikers during the Gold Rush. This is why we Edmontonions call our city "The Gateway to the North"

Please enjoy my perspective of one of of the fastest growing urban areas this side of China.

Thai Beauty

OK it's o8.o8.o8 and the Olympics have started. My personal belief is the IOC made an inappropriate choice.

This young lady and her friend put on a fantastic traditional Thai dance performance.

This weekend is the Cariwest Fest. I will have pictures of all the great Caribbean costumes that are created for the parade. Snap ya later ;-)

I think everyone has an uncomfortable feeling about this Olympics. Excellent portrait.
