Very nice Adam. You are becoming the master of the night shot! Give a panoramic city-scape a try, I'd like to see one.

Thank you John, I think I will have to give it a try, probably use the same XTi Camera but have to try both of my lens...

Happy Thanksgiving Adam, friendly from Quebec,Canada. Gaetan.

Thank you very much Gaetan does much get celebrated up in Canada today? I know your Thanksgiving Holiday already passed. Does Canada go nuts tomorrow too, when here in the US starts Black Friday Sales at the Malls and Stores? Its so nuts some stores are staying open today during the holiday which is just totally wrong, but they are first to jump on those holiday sales..

Adam, since last year some stores began to make sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday to stop those canadians who go to borderline US cities like Plattsburgh to take advantage of the sales. Same thing with online sites. This year it's more used and there's a lot of supposed bargains, they even use the terms Black Friday or in french Vendredi noir. But in here in Quebec the stores opening hours is well regulated by the law and no extending hours or by night. The best bargains are still at the Boxing Day on December 26 but stores can't open before 1 pm until the regular closing time. But since 5 years or more, those sales continue the week after and even more in January. Personally, I'm not crazy of that infatuation period. Best regards.

I know what you totally mean... I know of the news you hear of stories such as the one a few years ago, a Walmart security guard got trampled to death due to the frenzy..

PS: How is boxing day celebrated in Canada? What is usual / typical of that day, does everyone get into the spirt?

Gaetan Martineau on November 28, 2013

At my knowledge Adam, until now nothing like images that come from your country. Here, we see long lines of people waiting for hours in the cold in front of stores of electronic appliances (many Asiatics). I've done that only once for an hour because I thought that the opening was at noon. I will never do that again. Regards. Gaetan.
