52:500c – Week 16 – In The Neighborhood

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor,
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?

One of the shows that I grew up watching was Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, it’s a fantastic show, that still carries it’s wisdom even today! So with the honey garlic pulled chicken in the crockpot for the Southside Community Church Mid-Size Community meeting that night I took Heather around the neighborhood that I grew up in. Because it was an absolutely gorgeous day out and we enjoy taking walks.



So let’s make the most of this beautiful day,
Since we’re together, we might as well say,
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won’t you be my neighbor?

The route took us past my elementary school that I went to from Kindergarten to Grade 5, EW Foster. Which seems a whole lot smaller than the last time I saw it about five years ago, and much had changed. The playground with the blue elephant climbing bars was gone, but the swings (or wheees as my niece calls them) where still there. So after a short stop and a swing we continued onto Sam Sherratt. I don’t have many fond memories of that school, six to eight were not nice years for me. So I didn’t bother to take any photos at the school itself, I mean once you’ve seen one 1980s school you’ve really seen them all. Next was my High School, well the school buildings itself are still there since the Deaf School is still in operation, but EC Drury is no longer EC Drury but an adult HS. I also managed to grab a shot of Heather outside the greenhouses, it was more, get the focus, then “Turn and Smile” as she flashed me her usual stunning grin. Oh and the honey garlic pulled chicken was fantastic!



On a technical note, it’s actually pretty fun shooting the Hasselblad without a meter to worry about, trusting your gut (I only grab a meter reading first to confirm what my eyes and head were telling me. Also I got HC-110 back into my chemistry set, and loving what it does with RPX-100, can’t wait to try it on the 25 and 400 flavours as well.
