Last night was Midnight Madness around downtown Medicine Hat, Alberta and the perfect excuse to tour, shop, and graze our way through local hotspots with a reminder of the beer, cookies, bagels, coffee (and more) on offer!
Congrats to all the vendors, organizers, and businesses who pulled this off - a great evening all around, and a really fun way to support lots of great local shops!

Within the Academy Museum in Los Angeles, California you'll find Dorothy's Ruby Slippers from the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz. These are the screen-used, close-up ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland and are the centerpiece of a collection featuring several other props from the iconic film.

Located along the Singel canal in Amsterdam, the floating flower market (known locally as the Bloemenmarkt) is a popular spot to purchase seeds, bulbs, and numerous other varieties of flowers. Holland is known for tulips, and you'll find plenty of real and fake varieties available for sale here along with countless, iconically Dutch souvenirs.

Aside from being nice to look at, the initial reason I purchased this 1952 16mm Revere silent film projector was because of some of the 16mm reels I shot while in film school. Even though most of the work we shot was digital, we did play around with various film stocks to get a feel for the medium, and it hit me one day that I had no way to watch these past projects.
Still in excellent working condition, admittedly this Revere Model 48 film projector does not get switched on often, but because it's a beautiful piece of vintage equipment I do display it proudly. These 16mm projectors can be acquired relatively cheaply today, but they are expensive to ship because of their weight and bulb replacements can be tricky to come by. As we move further away from analog photography, vintage projectors like this one will only become more interesting.
