Colors of iris

Pretty flower with cool natural symmetry to it, blue or blue with some yellow... that's all I knew about iris - until I ran into this amazing collection in Finerty Gardens in June. Never knew there was such a variety to the colors of this flower. Judge for yourself.

Canadian Pacific Ballet

I have been fortunate enough to shoot  two shows by Canadian Pacific Ballet. Their program Ballet Under The Stars in The Market Square is very elegant and witty - I wish I could write about it the same way. Not much of a writer me is am afraid - I'll let the camera speak instead.

First, let me show couple group shots:

Now, shots from the first show, played out in July:

By now, I am pretty sure, you are glad I shut up and just showed those fabulous scenes. So, I'll continue in kind and show a few more from the second show, playing in August.

Quite a few shots as you see - and I have had a very hard time picking what to post. Hope those I chose do justice to the performance - very worth to visit.
