This smart young bear didn't want any part of playing with my dogs and promptly climbed about 20 feet up a tree to wait the dogs out. After taking a few pictures I gathered the dogs up and we continued our walk. Sure enough the young bear was long gone when we came back through the same area on our way back to the truck.
I'm pretty sure that isn't the real name of this bridge but that's how I know it.
I really wanted to go stand in the middle of the street and take a shot looking right down the center of this bridge (it would have looked really cool with the fisheye lens) but Q kept telling me there was too much traffic.
I think he just wanted to keep me from getting that shot! LOL
Over the years I have looked at lots of documents, read magazine and newspaper articles and watched countless documentaries on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. I can't count the times I have been in Dallas and with all of that, I had never actually visited Dealey Plaza, the site of the assassination.
On our trip to Texas this past weekend we (my wife and I) stopped in to see Q and his family. After treating us to a nice sushi dinner Q was kind enough to play tour guide and take us to Dealey Plaza.
After seeing it in videos and photos I always thought it was a much larger area. From a sniper's point of view this is an extremely confined space with the route bottle-necking right into the point where the shots were fired.
I, being the opinionated old fart that I am, have my own theory as to how many shooters there were and that opinion was made even stronger once I visited this place.
I won't bore you with my theory but I will say that I was surprised by the fact that even now, people still come to this spot to see it. We were there about 10:00 p.m. and there were several people walking around, taking photos and looking behind the area of the grassy knoll.
This was the scene in Coal Harbour a few days ago. 8 full size tankers pulled into town to meet a large boat full of salmon from one of the local fish farms. First time I've seen them use tankers to haul fish and not the usual refer trucks...
