  • Intimate Distance and Materialities

    I received an advance copy of “Intimate Wilderness: Arctic Voices in a Land of Vast Horizons”, and this was last year. The store has since received copies. I was so impressed by the volume. Mr. Hallendy spent fifty years in the Cape Dorset region of Baffin Island, Nunavut, developing deep and rich relationships with the people, and learning their language, customs, history, and culture.

  • April Snow and a Whole Whack of Robins!

    I hadn’t really planned on coming out this way. Three hours before I’d been heading down to the Bow River at Policeman’s Flats to check out the blue heron nesting colony and look for any interesting ducks.

    But as I got to the southern edge of the city, I looked off to the west. There was a lot of fresh snow over there so kept going south for a better look. The high country was blanketed from the mountain peaks to the foothills and it looked like more snow was about to fall.

  • Wind Worn: Keho Lake can be beautiful, but it depends on the day.

    The colour in the ice piled along the shores of Keho Lake was crazy.

    Deep blues, turquoises, slivers of silver that sparkled with prismatic rainbows as the shards clattered and tinkled on the banks. I was there with my old friend Stu and we could have spent the entire day taking pictures there. But my impatience made us move on.

    I know I’d be back, though, and soon. It was too lovely to waste.
