Little Ava, aged nine months in this photo, finds a way to amuse herself in the grain truck while hauling grain for Grandma near Vulcan, Alta. Ava’s mom Eryn Smith took the photo and assures me that the truck was not running at the time (you’re welcome, safety lovers!). Ava and family is from Crossfield, Alta. Thank you, Eryn, for sending in the photo. There’s a $25 cheque on the way to you for your trouble.
We welcome your photos. But before you send one, make sure the focus is crisp and, if it’s a photo of people, we want to see the whites of their eyes. In a 4×6-inch print, faces should be at least the size of a quarter. Emailed digital photos with medium to high resolution work best. Scans of prints are rarely good enough to reprint. If we use your photo, we’ll send you $25.
