A Camera, A National Holiday, and iPhoto

LampFace It was a beautiful Victoria Day here in Winnipeg. Warm (+19° celsius, which kicks the recent crappy weather in the butt), and sunny, so Renée and I ambled our way down to a Winnipeg landmark cum tourist trap, The Forks.

Located at the juncture of the Red and Assiniboine River, The Forks (or La Fourche for the Voyageurs in the audience) is historically significant as the place where settlers first set up digs in 1738. As with most North American historical sites, it has now been overrun with trinket shops and other business attempting to cash in on the fairly heavy tourist traffic.

But, we didn’t care. We just wanted to get out for a nice walk, and I wanted to actually use my somewhat new Fuji Finepix digital camera (Model #2600), and play with ‘s nice iPhoto.

Here’s a little movie from a lovely, lazy Victoria Day. (1.6 mb, music provided by the great Pullman.) As you would assume with something created by an product, you definitely require the Quicktime player plugin to view the movie. Sorry.
