Royal Canadian Air Force’s @CFSnowbirds performing a mother’s day fly-by over Oakville-Trafalgar hospital.
Our much loved @CFSnowbirds performing a fly-by over Oakville-Trafalgar hospital this afternoon at 1:07pm as part of #operationinspiration. A cross Canada tour to lift our spirits as we wait out the worst of COVID-19, while paying tribute to all front line employees who are working right now. It absolutely is motivating to watch the squadron approach and do a loop around the hospital with wings tipped. We got this!
Do you know this car? Let me share a little… Car enthusiasts love the Porsche 911 from 1989 through 1994. Buy one of these pre-owned for between $65K and $170K Canadian and then give it to Singer Vehicle Design in California who will custom restore – or reimagine as they say – as a one off for an additional sweet $475K up to $1.8M US. This here is ‘Malaysia’ (cars get named after global cities or countries) and I found her at the Toronto car show courtesy of Pfaff Automotive Partners (a Toronto auto dealer group). Now I knew of Singer before hand and in my dreams have commissioned a car from them… but in real life not so lucky! Next best is to be able to photograph one. I would say this is a bucket list item accomplished. NOTE: If you are the owner of Malaysia and have found this blog post, contact me and I’ll get you a copy of the picture.
A real world interpretation of the Canadian flag’s maple leaf at the beginning of fall. This photo was taken using the new Lensbaby Velvet 56 lens in macro mode, creating a soft ethereal effect and completely blurring out the background (in case you are wondering why it does not appear in focus). The soft blue is a lake, while the yellow-green tint are other leaves.
