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:
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
