Day 118 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: Heading to Alberta to Shoot the Rocky Mountains For One Week

Today we flew home to Alberta for a week to shoot a friend’s wedding in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, as well as to see family and friends after logging 118 amazing days on the road. We left Red Deer, Alberta at 4 o’clock on October 1st heading East and to-date have logged over 7500 kms and shot over 35,000 photos! We are holding up well, but life on the road can wear you down and we are looking very forward to sleeping in our own bed.

For interest sake I thought I’d test out Ottawa’s airport security by stashing a nearly full tube of toothpaste in my camera bag. Well, the two camera bodies and four hard drives may have thrown them off because the tube of toothpaste went undetected. Not only that, but I managed to board the plane with not one lighter, but two lighters (to light the camp stove) in my winter coat, even after security went though my coat by hand. I took this photo of them without anyone noticing. I will add that security was friendly and smiled easily.

The Calgary International airport is one of the nicer airports in Canada with comfort leather chairs and artwork everywhere.
