This is very cool Ron. Part of the Olympics festivities? Anyway, nicely taken and congrats on POTD!

Thanks, Kathy. This is part of Winterlude, in Ottawa, commemorating the "birth" (50 years)of the first mask, worn by Jacques Plante, the goalie for the Montreal Canadiens.

Congratulations, Ron, on a very interesting and informative work of sculpture! Well seen and captured with wonderful exposure on the whites!

Being a lifetime, die-hard Bruins fan, I know I should hate this shot but honestly think it's VERY creative...Good eye to catch it!! : )

Thanks, Caroline (act of bravery on your part)& Patrice (it was one of the many amazing snow sculptures at Winterlude this year)

By the way, Ron, I am an avid Redwings fan. Really enjoyed the hockey Olympic games, especially the exciting games between the US & Canada...both great games & a gold for Canada. Somehow, however, I think they should have shared a gold or played another game as they each only lost 1 game to each other & therefore, in all essence were tied. Guess it is not like the Stanley Cup Games. That is just how it worked out & a good lesson on life---some things just need to be accepted as they are because that is
Patrice Cigallio Wesa commented on March 08, 2010 08:19:
the way it is.

Thanks again, Patrice. I'm more of a basketball guy these days, but in my yournger days, I was a die-hard Canadiens fan, but loved the old Wings, - Howe, Stevie Y, etc.
