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.

Vi's for Pies

Vies is a great little cafe that has many things other than pies to offer. Because it's located in between the ritzy neighborhoods of Old Glenora and Glenora, you can grab a gourmet coffee and go for a walk and look at all the beautiful houses. Vi's is an Edmonton institution.

I am starting to shoot some of my favorite haunts.

Earls is only a few blocks from my house so it's a quick and easy place to get a meal. I have been going to earls since I was a teenager. The chain has gone from great food at very affordable prices to good food at slightly above average prices.

The restaurants are all being redone in that ultra modern fashion that is so vogue today, and the parrot that you see was at one time a major symbol of the earls chain.

Fall in Parkland

OK 70 bucks for a charger ACK!
O well....
The sad thing is I missed all the fall colours, except for this one shot which I took just before my camera died.
