Thursday, 11 August 2016 – the Edmonton Eskimos dominate the Montreal Alouettes in a Canadian Football League (CFL) game, winning 23 – 12. Despite my playing halfback thirty-plus years ago, and enjoying team and gameplay, this was the first CFL game I had attended. A big thank you goes out to my youngest brother for getting me out to this game during an unintended Edmonton layover. Canadian band 54-40 offered a half-time performance – ‘Ocean Pearl,’ ‘She La’ and ‘Nice to Luv You.’ Camera-wise my Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mk II (micro four thirds) impresses with its image accuracy and photos taken from seats a third of the way up into the stadium.

Quote to Consider – “If I saw something in my viewfinder that looked familiar to me, I would do something to shake it up.” – Garry Winogrand

Listening to – an ‘On Being with Krista Tippett,’ podcast interview with Maria Popova, ‘Cartographer of Meaning in a Digital Age;’ Susanna Kearsley’s ‘A Desperate Fortune;’ ‘Born to Run,’ an unabridged autobiography by Bruce Springsteen; and Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Nebraska’ and ‘Ghost of Tom Joad’ albums.
