    I was trying to find some type of event to go and shoot at, but the only thing I can think of is "ice on whyte". It might be fun to go there during the day on a weekend and shoot some of the wide diversity of people who frolick on whyte, LOL!

    We should see how much interest we can drum up.

    It's supposed to be warm this weekend, which is nice but it will be really slushy and wet though....I'm wondering how the temps will affect the whole Ice on Whyte thing.

    I might be interested but I'm not sure of my schedule yet.

    Temperatures are suppose to be on the "warm" side, but that is not saying much really. Whyte Ave is definitely slushy, but the sidewalks are somewhat clear. Definitely easy walking.

    Weekends, evenings work best for me. Beyond that, I have little preference as to exact times.

    Ok. Here is what I was thinking...

    This weekend is out, as I have lots of stuff to do, but the next weekend, on Sunday (The 25th) would be good.

    I was thinking we would hit up Ice On Whyte at around 11am. If things go well, and people have enough energy, we could wander (or drive for us lazy folks, ie: me) to the university area and check out the architecture and even the river valley and high level bridge, again if we (ie: me) isn't too tired or lazy, hehe.

    Comments?
    Ideas?
    Too much?

    Thanks!

    Hmmmm....

    Has anyone been keeping tabs on the weather here? Forecast says -17c is the high on Sunday.

    I'm sorry, but I don't wish to submit my camera to that kind of temps. The only way that I will come out is if it rises up to something like -12c or something. I hate the weather sometimes.

    Sorry folks, but I think we will have to put this one on hold....

    -17 isn't so bad for your camera. I've shot in much colder temps...the only problem is that the batteries die very quickly. That being said, I'm not keen on being outside either.
    I wouldn't be able to make it anyway...
