These are remarkable 

O Canada
From the majesty of the Maritimes to the stark landscapes of Alberta’s oil sands, the nation as you’ve never seen it before

Time to enjoy #photography
 
It's DAY TWO of REVEALS
from the 2015 - 15TH ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What you are about to experience 
over the course of the next 10 days is pretty awesome.
We play a game - 500 photographers and myself - a photography scavenger hunt.

What  is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers  

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
There are 10 categories:
This is the first - the "*RISK*" album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*RISK*" album,
1 item seen in 233 different ways.

Introduction
(introduction français en bas)

I put a little bit of sumthin in here so you know you've found the correct Zen. I've had this account since before Gmail opened up to the public.

I'm just a guy livin a life. I grew up with the pop culture society. I speak english, french, and some spanish and enjoy learning them and communicating. I love to travel. I love heavy metal and video games. I'm a 40 year old child who still watches Star Wars and Star Trek. I'm not quite a nerd, but not quite socially adept. I'm a hybrid humanoid with depth and a dry sense of humour. Sometimes I'm a photographer, and most of the time I'm an observer. I love people watching.

The Zen

I came across someone today, May the 4th be with you, that reminded me of great society. I stopped to read. I read for hours. Someone I forgot was in the world. Intelligent, well read, from "hippy" parents and given all the opportunity in the world to pursue her dreams. I read about her trials at University and her search is similar to mine. The search for what makes you happy. While her happiness in the beginning of her life is just beginning at 20 something, only a few years down the road I got feeling my life was at an end, or perhaps just a dead end. I tend to cause myself hurdles, personal ones. I create mountains out of them and nothing good ever comes of it. Being in that good place comes rarely for some of us. It's easy to fall into the rut of negative world hating big picture sucks mentality. I have a lot going on in my head. A lot of good. To better focus on the good would bring such feelings. I may even start writing good things.

The Locust

End of May 2012: I'd forgotten to highlight the yang of my yin, the Locust, so today's post is about that. Our struggle to be a part of our world without offending our neighbours. Sometimes the Locust wins.

J'ai mis un peu de sumthin ici que vous savez que vous avez trouvé le bon zen. J'ai eu ce compte Gmail depuis avant ouvert au public.

Je suis juste un gars livin une vie. J'ai grandi avec la société la culture pop. Je parle anglais, français et un peu d'espagnol et profiter de leur apprentissage et de communication. J'adore voyager et je suis libre. J'aime le musique heavy metal et les jeux vidéo. Je suis un enfant de 40 ans qui regarde encore Star Wars et Star Trek. Je ne suis pas un nerd, mais pas tout à fait socialement habituee. Je suis un humanoïde hybride avec une profondeur et un sens de l'humour. Parfois, je suis photographe, et la plupart du temps, je suis un observateur.

le Zen

Je suis tombé sur quelqu'un aujourd'hui, le 4 mai soit avec vous, qui me rappelle la grande société. J'ai arrêté a lire. J'ai lu pendant des heures. J'ai oublié quelqu'un était dans le monde. Intelligente, bien lire, des parents hippy et donné à tous l'occasion dans le monde pour poursuivre ses rêves. J'ai lu au sujet de ses essait à l'université et sa recherche est similaire à la mienne. La recherche de ce qui vous rend heureux. Alors que son bonheur au début de sa vie ne fait que commencer à 20 quelque chose, seulement quelques années sur la route je me suis sentant ma vie touchait à sa fin, ou peut-être juste une impasse. J'ai tendance à provoquer moi-même des obstacles, ceux personnelles. Je crée montagnes d'eux et rien de bon ne vient jamais de lui. Être en bonne place que vient rarement pour certains d'entre nous. Il est facile de tomber dans l'ornière du monde haïr grande image négative aspire mentalité. J'ai beaucoup de choses dans ma tête. A beaucoup de bien. Pour mieux se concentrer sur la bonne apporterait de tels sentiments. Je peux même commencer à écrire de bonnes choses.

le criquet

Fin mai 2012: j'avais oublié de mettre en évidence le yang de mon yin, le criquet, afin post d'aujourd'hui est à ce sujet. Notre lutte pour faire partie de notre monde sans offenser nos voisins. Parfois, le criquet gagne.

One of the most exotically decorated in the city. The most gracious hosts, the family of Mr. Kamal Mehra that owns it are very warm and charismatic. Absolutely the best service I've ever had. Also my favourite Butter Chicken in all of Winnipeg. Location is prime, half a block from The Winnipeg Convention Centre and a block from City Place shopping centre and Delta Hotel. You can't beat it.
