This past Saturday was a work party/photo scavenger hunt. To spruce things up, every team was given a theme. There were the Awesome '90s, the Radical '80s, the Swinging '50s, and then my team...the Depression Era. The Dirty 30's.
Anyway, here are some of the highlights! To set the tone, we didn't smile in any of our pictures, and set the camera to permanent sepia tone.
Waniskewan just north of Saskatoon. To get to this teepee, we walked through the First Nations Culture Centre and interrupted a tribal elder giving a speech while dressed in whole traditional feathers/buck skin outfit. Afterwards, we realized that there was a path outside the centre bypassing all of this. Whoops!
Then we took a short break to take photos in a farmer's yard by some dilapidated sheds. Super-authentic!
Here's a picture of us at the Blairmore Ring. What is this? Well apparently"The Blairmore Formation, a layer of water and sand far below the earth’s surface, had caused flooding of the mine shaft. Huge cast-iron rings, some five metres in diameter, were put in place to keep the water out."
And now you know!
Here's me purchasing a Dollarama Pregnancy Test. I'll admit to being a little embarassed to look like a Hudderite and buying a birth control test for $1.95
Finally, here we are at Sports on Tap, having a shot with the manager. Good times had by all!
And that's about it! It was tons of fun, we saw lots of stuff, and realized just how friendly people are when you ask them to take a photo of you dressed in silly outfits.
