Mines View Park – Not!
I took this at Mines View Park which is supposed to be a vantage point for seeing some old mines where the indigenous people of the Mountain Provinces obtained gold and other minerals. Unfortunately, the only thing you see are tourists and stalls with hawkers selling anything from potted plants, drinks and photo-souvenir booths with painted ponies and even Saint Bernards wearing sunglasses! Ridiculous but I guess it sells. Must come back here for a sunrise shoot though when there’s less people. I think the place has some potential for that. I used to come here when we were kids but it’s a far cry now from what it was then. It used to be a clean and relatively pleasant place to visit.
