Blog Guelph: Royal City Sunset

Royal City Sunset , originally uploaded by PB Dude.

Unless we're lined up for a fast miracle, the much coveted 'January thaw of 2009' is but a dream. Yes winter drones on dear ones - snow on snow with a dash of snow is ours to fight or frolic in - your choice.

Personally, I'm doing my best to learn the art of hibernation. I stockpiled a porch full of firewood, a billion dvd's and a whack of dark chocolate. Instead of poking my head out of my home to check on winter's status, I dip into the pool of Guelph photo's.

Yup - it's still a deep freeze out there!! See for yourself......

Blog Guelph: Emerald Tree Boa - Corallus Caninus

This week has seen a multitude of fantastic photos coming out of the Guelph Photography Group's trip to the zoo last weekend. I'm posting a bunch of them, but there are more in the streams of the photographers, if you click on the photo. It's probably a good idea to click on them anyway to find out what went on during the shooting of the photo. Wow!

Speaking of the Guelph Photography Club, there's a meeting tonight at the Woolwich Arms at 7pm. The back room will have reserved space and there's beer! You can try the new Stonehammer Oatmeal Coffee Stout.

Blog Guelph: She's as Cold as Ice

flake brust , originally uploaded by RavenGirlPhotography.


:: 'Tis a gorgeous day, yet a tad uninviting at the same time. :: I believe it may still be the week of Chinese New Year. :: Last time I checked it was January in Guelph.

So you'll have to excuse my unsureness, but I appear to be having a brain FREEZE a the mo.
I'm all out of focus so to speak, thus, today's Made in Guelph won't simply hone in on one fab photographer so much as it will take a closeup at the deep freeze evident in these chilly climes.
Real close.
Ice, Ice baby: it's Made in Guelph....

Blog Guelph: Toques

Toques, originally uploaded by peterkelly.

Monday is back once again, this time sporting a fetching blue sky, light layer of hoar frost, ice, snow and a glorious, bright sun. A photographer's dream really - provided your hands don't freeze off in the process.

Do enjoy today's selection. And do click the photo's for your chance to go way deeper into the winter wonderland of great Guelph pics......

Blog Guelph: Flickr Meeting for Guelphites

Buffy: Want beer. Like beer. Beer good.

It's true. In Buffy's case it was evil beer, but in the case of F&M Brewery brewmaster George Eagleson, it's genius. A coffee beer combo just seems too perfect. I like beer, and I like coffee, and judging by Guelph's photography pools, they do too.
So, you've got Planet Bean Coffee partnering with F&M Brewery to make Stonehammer Oatmeal Coffee Stout, and get this, you can try a sampling today at the Woolwich Arms between 4-6pm.

Blog Guelph: 16 Things . . .

16 Things . . ., originally uploaded by Pah Print.

I looked out the window this morning and the sky was blazing. Thinking I had a few minutes to look through Guelph's multitude of photos for a sun theme, I took my time before taking my own photo of the sky. I did not have minutes. I had seconds. The sun disappeared before I uploaded the first photo to the blog. I hope someone out there in Guelphland caught it.
I dropped the sun theme, as you can see, and decided on something better. :)

Also, a shout out to Dave for sticking to and finishing his 366 project. Yay!

Blog Guelph: Shooting for the Stars

, originally uploaded by clinton.tonge.

Welcome to Tuesday's
Made in Guelph

If you could tear yourselves away from Obama-Fest for just a tiny wee moment, I'd love to share with you some lovely pics.
I hear you though, why should you?
You want to join in on the worlds collective "phew" and "YAY", I know...but let's look at today's M.i.G. this way - as a gift to him from the frigid yet beautiful North. As an offering of education and peace and partnership, n'est-ce-pas?

Today Blog Guelph will illustrate our Canadian tenacity in the face of a deep freeze and at the very same time ooze the warmth and welcome we feel....

Who better to visually describe our visions of ice than today's photog, Clinton Tonge I say?
So take a gander at this bakers half-dozen and see if we can't collectively celebrate a future of becoming unstuck with Obama.

All together now,
all together now....

Blog Guelph: Slow Manoeuvre

Slow Manoeuvre, originally uploaded by peterkelly.

Monday, Monday .......

Today's butt chilling photo pics were chosen for the non-Guelph viewer among you - particularly those of you where winter is but a concept. Anyone from Guelph needs no further reminder that we're barely one month into this insanely snowy, deep freeze season - quick - hide the all the sharp knives before we go mad!

For a more authentic experience, load your underwear with ice cubes before viewing.
