A post political or piratical.

So, apparently the media did not like my photograph of choice for this provincial election.  It was one I chose with purpose.  But the decision has come down – give them a different image or they won’t include one at all.  A frustrating state of affairs if you ask me.  So what else is there to do?  I ran outside this evening, right before it got too dark to do so, and had Damon take a photo:

Tobi-Dawne Smith for Saskatoon Meewasin 2011

 

Now…  being the type who enjoys fighting injustice and ignorance as I do…  and being as intolerant of the misuse of power as I am…  well…  I do have to admit to a certain idea crossing my mind.  I actually did entertain the notion of sending in a photo of me in my Halloween costume.  After all.  If a photo of me, in the riding, holding a baby snake we came across while out at a photo shoot, teaching my daughter about it and encouraging her to value all life is inappropriate?  Then maybe me as a pirate is exactly what they need to see.  😉  But, I behaved.  As seen above.  After all, there’s a time and a place for all things.  Take this blog post.  Me as a pirate may not be appropriate for election night coverage, but here?  Heck ya!  So, here you go.  Me and my family – The Last Saskatchewan Pirates (as photographed by my younger sister Jewles).

Oh!  And yes… my election night photograph will show up again in the slideshow.  I couldn’t see a simple way to remove it, and I didn’t feel it was enough of a priority to spend a bunch of time digging around for the solution… so I just left it there.  LOL
