  • The Long Driveway

    This is our neighbor's driveway. Each one of the trees is about 100 feet tall. He is constantly complaining when it snows as he has to blow half a kilometer of drifts in order to get out of his yard. Things are big on the Prairies. This is a hi-res ima…

  • Where I Come From
