As the end of the year approaches, we took a night to visit the Calgary Zoo's annual ZooLights display. Unfortunately, we managed to pick a particularly cold evening to do so – it was a brisk -20 C or so, worse with the windchill. Since it was so cold, we didn't end up seeing every exhibit, but here's a few shots from what we did see between defrosting breaks of hot chocolate and coffee at the cafe.

Merry Christmas!

For this 4th installment of City of Landscapes (see also parts 1, 2, and 3), we take a look at everyone's starting zone, Atlas Park. This post is a little bigger than the previous ones as I spent a bit more time there toward the end.

For the third part of this adventure into "screenshotography" from City of Heroes, we head over to the Rogue Isles for a few shots today. Another thing I regret now that it's over is how little time I spent red-side, especially with taking screenshots of the scenery. There were a lot of pretty amazing sights throughout the Rogue Isles that I wish I had captured.

For this installment of reviewing the G+ photo walk I went on earlier this year, I thought I would experiment a bit with some post-processing. Here's some of the results of some colour adjustments as well as some black and white conversions using a combination of Aperture and OnOne's Perfect Photo Suite.

Here are some more landscape "photography" (screenshotography?) shots I've taken from the world of City of Heroes. Enjoy!
