It was unusually warm for a November day and was about 4 C (39 F) as I walked in Borden Park. It began to rain as I was leaving but I managed to get home before the roads became covered in freezing rain.
In Borden Park this morning, workers were preparing for an exhibition of animatronic dinosaurs which will be open to the public September 24-26. Today’s park visitors were drawn to watch the hive of activity from behind red metal fences.

I have a fairly new camera and a very new lens which I tried for the first time today. After a walk to Borden Park, I sat down on a bench to get myself sorted out. Much to my dismay, I realized that I had left my camera on after I had used it two […]
