A week in Florida was spent shopping, walking, driving, shopping, (nearly) drowning, eating, shopping, and, occasionally, picture taking. I bought 3 cameras with me: My trusty Canon 7.1MP point-and-shoot, my Sony a200 DSLR and my new toy, a Casio EX-z90 12.1MP point-and-shoot. I could have saved some of my carry-on allowance cuz the Casio was the only one I used. Here are some examples:

Anchoring the downtown of Niagara Falls, Ontario since 1919 was a department store called Rosbergs. Jacob Rosberg opened the store after relocating from Toronto. The store lasted over 70 years, but finally succumbed to the curses of many a Niagara downtown, suburbanization and cross-border shopping. After sitting shut since December 1988, the Rosbergs building was participating in the artistically-based rejeuvenation of downtown Queen Street by hosting a photography exhibit in its iconic windows. Unfortunately, those photos, and the memories of the many who shopped inside 74 Erie Avenue, went up in flames last Sunday. Here are some shots of Rosbergs in 2004, still boarded up, and yesterday, in ruins.
Photos taken on November 14, 2004 and October 11, 2009 at the corner of Erie and Queen, Niagara Falls, Ontario.

The Brian Setzer Orchestra

Our first trip to Bluesfest in Ottawa was pretty much contained to the headliner on the main stage where the Brian Setzer Orchestra kept the blues at bay and rain (mostly) away.
