This guy was trying to make me come down in the water with him!
I took it yesterday, when the temperature had gone up to just -15°C (that’s 5° F) but still windy, which made it -25°C with the wind chill factor. These frigid temperatures have been on top of many people’s minds these last, few days.
We really haven’t been out much, but I made a quick rush out of the car to shoot a few duck photos yesterday. The fingers stiffen up right away from holding the camera and it’s not good for the camera going back and forth between that cold and warm.
In any event, I managed to get some photo practice in, at least.
On Sunday morning we had a major fire here in Saint John’s south end. One derelict building, that should have come down long time ago, and another building burned, and made sixteen people homeless. It was -27°C (-16°F) and the firefighters had a tough job trying to prevent even more buildings to catch fire. Also … with derelict buildings they can never be really certain that nobody’s in there, but there were no casualties this time. Someone shot this video.
And here is a photo my photo friend, and excellent photographer Bill Lapp shot afterwards … click on the picture to see his photo stream in Flickr.
