Step back into a simpler time in the middle of the city.
Fort Edmonton is North America’s largest interactive historic park. It is a place where you can experience life as it was in the early days of the City of Edmonton through four historical periods: the fur trade days of the rustic fort, and the pioneer years of 1885, 1905 & 1920 but my favorite part is the 1920s midway. The park is run as a non-profit association by a volunteer board, and seems to be always growing and adding “new” features. The most recent of which is the midway.
The bold and colourful wood-sided shacks house simple games of skill and chance where you can win nostalgic prizes.
The kiddie rides are still operated by manpower; an attendant stands at the centre and turns a crank to rotate the ride full of happy children.
The Ferris wheel gives you a good view of the recreated, fully functioning train station and restored steam train.
There are always fun events and activities happening at Fort Edmonton – it’s a great spot to check out if you’re in Edmonton, especially in the summertime. :)

In spite of being a trained photographer, Ines quit her job and continued with photography only as a hobby. She still finds time to create beautiful, expressive portraits, which she recently did this in her hometown, Brunswick, and transformed the city into a quintessential dream setting with a unique swirly bokeh effect. Her weapon of choice? The New Petzval Art Lens, of course!

Years ago, a young Christopher Logan moved to Milan after obtaining a Photography degree from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. Falling in love with the European aesthetic which would later manifest in his photos, he was commissioned by a number of fashion houses, further developing his craft. He is now based in yet another fashion capital - New York City - and is still immersed in the world of fashion.
Situated along the banks of the Ganges, the vibrant city of Varanasi is one of the most important in Hinduism. It is where pilgrims flock to wash their sins in the waters of the great river and hold sacred rituals. During a trip a few years back, flyaway was able to capture scenes unique to this city on film.
