I first saw Laura’s photography about a month ago when I visited her website. She loves to travel and her pictures show it. I was very happy to see such a talented photographer living in Edmonton. I encourage you to visit her website. You’ll see lots of great pictures. You could also meet her in person and see her prints. Last Saturday I did just that.
I knew she was displaying and selling her work at Edmonton’s City Centre Market. Just before noon I dragged myself out of bed and I went straight to the market. Her business was booming when I arrived. So I started to look at all the great prints. Laura gave me a smile and a hello. She saw my camera bag and asked me something photographyish….. I was a little nervous so I don’t remember the exact question 🙂 But it did give me a chance to introduce myself.
We talked about photography while I thumbed through her photos. During our conversation I was introduced to Laura’s Husband. After a couple of minutes I gather some interesting information. I do believe that there was an extra line added to their wedding vows. I imagine it went something like this:
in sickness and health……..as long as I, Laura use Apple computers from now on……….. as long as I, Doug shoot Canon cameras from now on…… Sorry Laura I had to include that 🙂 I know, I know, I am a nerd. No one has to tell me.
So the visit to the market went great. I picked up an awesome portrait of a cow. Yes a cow! And then on my way out, of the market, I picked up some kettle corn. You can’t go to the markets in Edmonton without having some kettle corn. 🙂
