At the last CPL Photo Club meeting it was decided that the photo assignment would be "texture." Not an easy task. I feel like a blood hound searching for a good scent.

Last Sunday night I attended the Multicultural Gala put on by the India Canada Association of Calgary (INCA) and the Southern Alberta Heritage Language Association. I was fortunate to have a friend get me a media pass and full access to the Jack Singer Concert Hall , so of course I took a ton of photos. It was a blast!
The performances were stunning and the audience was very lively with cheering, shouting comments and applause. Mayor Nenshi gave a short speech and then handed out INCA Awards of excellence.

People often tell me they think I'm creative, then they claim that they are not. Ever watch toddlers play? (Before they are introduced to electronic games.) I believe everybody is creative and has something to say, it's just been programmed out of us by parents, peers, life. I like Canadian photographer Freeman Patterson’s comment “nobody can survive for less than a minute without using imagination.”
Trolling through Google I found some web sites that I hope help spark the creative instinct. I threw in the right brain/left brain test just for fun. Don't believe it if it says you're not creative. You just have a lot more deprogramming to do.
