    Put a match to it, and it'll clean itself up. Drink what's left in the bottle.

    I went for a ride down the Victoria Trail. It runs along the north edge of the North Saskatchewan River north of Edmonton.

    It’s funny... I live close to the western edge of the trail and take the last couple km on a regular basis as a connecting road. I never knew what was up the trail to the east until I followed it yesterday.

    There’s a number of these along the way. I only stopped to take pictures of the first one.

    [​IMG]

    The sign says this started as a Métis settlement house. The Métis originally arrived to help convert the Cree to Christianity and the Métis were eventually pushed north by later arrival of the Ukrainian. The house shows signs of stylistic conversion and is maintained as an example of a transitional era house.

    [​IMG]

    This and another building (not pictured) appear to be what’s left of Fort Victoria. Neat area that’s only accessible by dirt road (1.5 lane) with no nearby pavement. Makes the area less traveled.

    Had to stop on the side of the road for a Zoom meeting with work.

    So far as offices go, this one is pretty good.

    Everyone does colour. I’ve been interested in B&W for awhile so I’m practicing to see if I get any good at it.

    There is lots of serious photo talent within the asylum. It's a real treat.

    Are you shooting in monochrome or converting to greyscale (grayscale?*) in software later?

    I’m shooting in colour. None of my cameras have a black and white mode and I find I need to tweak the levels in post to get the balance right.

    The above photos were all shot on an iPhone (I think is an 8s) and edited on an iPad.

    It’s suppose to hit 24 deg. C. Here today. I hope to take a run up to Gold River and back. Unfortunately pub is not open for beer and burger, Fire up the BBQ in back yard when I get back. The road should be quiet and free of RV’s.
    Stay safe everyone
