It’s cold this morning – -33C with a wind chill of -39C. Some school bus routes have been cancelled. Steam from chimneys and exhaust fumes from vehicles mingle and hang in the air. Warmth will be needed to be outside today; what is worn will count as will the food used to keep the body’s furnace going and primed. It will be good to be moving rather than to stand still. And, in a day or two we’ll round that corner of the earth’s orbit marked by Winter solstice (that darkest, longest night of the year) and then we’ll begin our return trek back to days with more and longer hours of light.

Images – winter scenes around High Level, Alberta.

Quote to Consider – “Photographs really are experience captured, and the camera is the ideal arm of consciousness in its acquisitive mood. To photograph is to appropriate the thing photographed. It means putting oneself into a certain relation to the world that feels like knowledge — and, therefore, like power.” – Susan Sontag, On Photography

Listening to – Loreena McKennitt, a celtic exploration of music – songs in my hearing include ‘Mummers’ Dance, Huron ‘Beltane’ Fire Dance and Annachie Gordon; I was surprised to find Canadian, Loreena McKennitt’s version of Annachie Gordon showing up on Irish radio playlists last night.

      My hope and wish for you is that you find the warmth of family and friends within this Christmas season.

      Take care … hoping to read about that new camera one of these days. 😉

    • Hey there, Vit:

      Like you, I’m an evolving photographer (albeit in this northern hemisphere), learning as I go – seeing your work, I appreciate these very kind words. I also, appreciate how you are working with, handling and holding light within images – beautiful schtuff!

      Thank you & continue to explore the light … take care 😉

    • Hey there, Jf …

      Thanks for looking in and your encouragement. I’m liking your photos and paintings.

      You’ll have to add a listening to and quotes section, too, to your posts.
