It is that crazy time again, the Calgary Stampede. Here are some observations from the sidelines in downtown Calgary, Saturday around noon. Starting with the real intimidating security:

I wonder if those Amazons would have had their facial expressions if they stood in front of a mirror?

More Amazons waiting to get into the bar to wet their dry throats ...

Hmmm, I wonder what the deal was? Or is she just happy to see her boyfriend? At any rate, she reflected well.

Took the next two images to see if I would get arrested for 'obstructing justice' ... This is what happens if you have too much alcohol in your system - you get dumped on the lawn where there are "NO DOGS ALLOWED".

And you end up under the watchfull eye of the law

oh my, what a set! in the last one the cop's expression says 'oh crap, now what do I do? she'll probably barf in the back of the car'.

I plan on going downtown again, if the weather turns sunnier ... it is amazing what you see there ... and the expression on the policeman's face? I think he felt pity for her ... then again, you may be right ..:laughing:

Matt last year I finished work at 2AM on my way home I seen a lot of stuff happening because of to much partying. Your photos do tell a story. Was it heat stroke or booze?

I think I have to learn to use smaller images. Scrolling through them just annoys the living daylights out of me, so I bet others think the same ... :wall-an:
