  • Photographer's Choice: Tulips and a nose — Looking at this image reminds me of the amazing weather we had that day in May. Much of a photographer's job is spent looking for ways to document 
for our readers what is going on in our city. One of the things we do is look for people doing things and try to tie those activities to the weather to tell a story. 
In this case, I went to Assiniboine Park's Leo Mol Sculpture Garden. It turns out a mother and her daughter, Emily Walker-Craig, were taking advantage of the Victoria Day holiday to walk through the garden and had stopped to check out the tulips. I took a number of photos and was in the process of getting personal 
information when out of the blue, the four-year-old put her face right into a tulip for a big, long sniff. I managed to get the photo before she ran off… 
Her mother and I laughed at the absurdity of the moment — one I am happy to remember on this chilly day at the end of a wonderful year of photography.
