Alone, along the road, driving home, structures from a former time and world that Alberta was age and erode with the seasons. Cared about structures are kept for their continued functionality, others for their memorial’s sake, to remember people and their time. Other structures, uncared for, decay and become derelict, awaiting demise. Each informs of their former time – what was then and what was on the go and what it was like being there (and then). Halt the car, grab camera and tripod, look around … repeat … all the way home. Snow melts. Spring takes hold.

Listening to – Joshua Redman’s ‘Stop this Train,’ and Sigur Ros’ ‘Svefn-G-Englar’ and ‘Glosoli.’

Quote to Inspire – “It’s not how a photographer looks at the world that is important. It’s their intimate relationship with it.” – Antoine D’Agata

    1. Hey there, Gina:

      I’m totally impressed with what you have accomplished in editing your flower photos – my Mum would have enjoyed the art you are creating. Totally good!
      Hope things are improving with Hubby.

      Take care ….

      1. Thanks so much! I really enjoy flowers. I guess living in the desert makes me appreciate all the ones I can get my hands on. No bloom comes into my house without being photographed. But then I can only hope that they understand their own beauty becomes immortalized. Thanks, too, for the good wishes about hubby. He is completely healed now.
