“Let’s go out for ice cream … or something,” I suggested to my friends here in Edmonton late one afternoon.
They agreed, and we headed downtown. What started out as a trip for creamy goodness, however, became an impromptu photo shoot at the Muttart Conservatory including cool little shots like these:
From there we went for supper (still no ice cream) to the Sugarbowl Bar and Café in Garneau. For starters we enjoyed smoked paprika popcorn – sounds bizarre but it was amazing! For mains I chose a salmon salad with a nice little rosé. I wish I still drank beer because their selection of over 100 international beers looked incredible! Even their bathrooms were pretty exotic.
From there we went for a short walk to find a vantage point from which to shoot the city and high level bridge, but to no avail. That took us back to the car, and an adventure drive – all for my benefit – while the toddler slept. Although I hadn’t brought my tripod, I still managed to shoot the following photos handheld. We never found ice cream, but it was a most enjoyable impromptu evening of photos, good food and first-rate company.
