If that sound like it has the potential to be a bit surreal then I got the title right. The Prairie Gardens Corn Maze is not quite in the middle of nowhere, but you'll pass it on the way there.

It’s a farm full of activity that is quite popular with young families from the Edmonton area. If you want to pay a little too much to be surrounded by kids and goats running through a maze cut into a corn field – this is the place for you. If you get tired of running through the cornfield, you could always pull up a haybale and watch two guys dressed like pirates firing pumpkins out of a huge cannon.
Kids between the ages of 5 and 10 can be heard saying exciting things like, “hey this is such an awesome maze! or this is so fun to climb!” while the adults can be heard saying mundane things like, “this is a bunch of corn. or this is a pile of hay”.
The best time of year to go there is probably at the end of August – when the corn is high and not too dried out yet…

As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewelyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewelyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
Although its existence has always been known among locals, it was only in 1913 when the rest of the world was introduced to the Inca site of Machu Picchu through an expedition headed by Yale University and professor Hiram Bingham.
Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
Autochrome was one of the first strides toward color photography. The combination of potato starch grains and silver bromide produces a cloudy cast that makes buildings like Villa Bonnier look even more intriguing.
Anna Hollond got her fist camera on her 10th birthday, and she hasn't stopped carrying a camera ever since. About a year ago, she sought to document her memories for her journal but didn't want to do so digitally, and got her first Lomography camera. Next thing she knew, she had a trove of instant cameras, as well as a knack for instant photography.
