Imagining, remembering former times of a much younger Life when the journey taken was as much as a walk to a friend’s home – ringing the doorbell, checking to see … ‘You want to come out for a walk?’ Not an appointed or scheduled time, not appointment, not a time with rigorous intention or time to be maximized, fully, just time to talk, to get beyond the four walls of our homes and explore the world, to see what’s happening and to return. My friends and I were the better for it – the fresh air, the walk and the talk enriched us.

Now, at my present age time and times are planned with others and very rarely do they involve shared journey. Getting out, photographing the world, paying attention to surroundings now involves the disciplined journey of getting away, most times alone, and the work involved is in ‘seeing’ the world. Talk and exploration occurs with photographs and now holds narrative about what each photographer has seen and experienced. Meeting and narrative rather than journey have become focal point. Here, a day’s drive has taken me south and back and photographs record fall’s early morning colours. And, my wife will be the first to recognize the association to my cousins’ Rimbey farm with the farming imagery.

Listening to – Martyn Joseph’s take on many Bruce Springsteen songs; standing out are ‘The Rising,’ ‘Walk Like a Man,’ ‘Thunder Road,’ ‘If I Should Fall Behind’ and ‘One Step Up.’

Quote to Inspire – “I love photographing. It’s that simple.” – Stuart Franklin

'Why be reliant upon secular media sources, literary works penned by atheists, and embittered hearsay to inform your views on religiosity, or worse still to bring about the lack thereof, isn't that as sensible as asking directions to KFC from Ronald McDonald?' ―T. C. M
