We excitedly remembered this evening that we could tally up our Eee vs Bee votes to see who the winner is. This months competition was about July 1st, it seems like somewhat of a Sherwood Park tradition to go down to Broadmoor Lake for all the action of Canada Day. Boy, was It was a beautiful day for all the fun! We’re not quite sure what the August competition will entail, but it’s coming up on Monday night! So stay tuned.
For now, here is the winning pictures from the July Canada Day competition..
Bee: I was born in Canada, and have been here 99.9% of my life (I have only left twice, once to Disney Land and once on a Basketball trip to Seattle) I love the Canadian flag, I love seeing it waving in the sky, on peoples windows, stitched to peoples backpacks…everywhere. It gives me such a sense of unity, and makes me proud to live in the World’s greatest country. I knew I had to find a few Canadian flags for this challenge. As soon as we walked into Broadmoor Lake I spotted these flags and knew that was my picture.
And the gracious loser,
Eee: So this is what losing feels like… just kidding! It was a great match, and Canada Day sure was hard! So much red and white around, tons of kids I couldn’t figure out what to take a picture of. I saw this little girl sitting eating her ice cream and enjoying the festivities, but couldn’t quite get close enough to get the shot I really wanted. Something Brant and I both want to get better at is simply just asking, ‘can I take your picture?’ to people we find interesting (or to mom and dad in this case) But to me this is what Canada day was all about, little kids enjoying their treats, and watching the world go by!
We are really looking forward to this months competition, as we’re using film cameras! Tomorrow is our shooting day and hopefully getting everything developed! Stay tuned for the Thomson’s family shoot coming up this week too, then its off to Kelowna for a quickie vacation! We love the summer!
Don’t forget to leave comments for upcoming challenge ideas you may have. We love to hear what you think and we are going to need some indoor (or cold outdoor) ideas for winter!
