Philippe: It was a nice, hot day at the legislative grounds, so we didn't linger too long.
I took two or three of this one at various angles, but the wind was not co-operating.
I really like how the D80 renders bokeh.
*no clue* what these flowers are, but they're cute enough for a shot. :)
Anna: Now that Philippe has the new D80, I've "inherited" the D70. Today was my first day learning how to use it.
Downtown Edmonton has an extensive pedway system, which includes the downtown LRT stations. This photo was taken underground, as we were leaving the LRT station to go up to Churchill Square, where The Works is still going on. There's a lovely garden under a row of pyramid shaped skylights. I liked how the sunlight streaming through the skylight made these flowers appear to glow.
We've frequently seen people just standing under this arch, enjoying the water misting down on them, in our current 30C plus heat.
The tubes making up the rainbow are filled with colored water.

Another much enjoyed feature of our city in the summer is the Legislature grounds. The north side includes a large wading pool, this fountain, and a series of pools, bridges, stepping stones, fountains and waterfalls. Open grass, flower gardens, shady areas and the odd jackrabbit can also be enjoyed.
