For Bobby, a cousin and Canadian veteran, who passed away last Wednesday and whose funeral occurs today in Grande Prairie, Alberta. Thank you for the friend you’ve always been to my wife and me. Thank you for the family you’ve been a part of. Thank you for your service to Canada – wounded, but accomplishing what very few others could have. Very well done!

Listening to – ‘William’s Lullaby,’ ‘The Gairlock and Loch Duich’ and ‘Amazing Grace’ offered by the Canadian Scottish Regiment Pipes and Drums.

Quote to Consider – “‘A photograph is not an accident – it is a concept.’ To take a good photograph, runs the common claim, one must already see it. That is, the image must exist in the photographer’s mind at or just before [it is taken].” Susan Sontag (working with an Ansel Adams quote and taking it further) in ‘On Photography.’

    The beautiful photos fit the sentiments you expressed perfectly. Thanks for sharing. By the way, since I first heard Amazing Grace played on bagpipes, I have thought it was remarkable how well the two fit together to express the bittersweet sorrow of the passing of a loved one intertwined with the promise of eternal life.

      Hey there, Rob:

      I was able to witness the power of bagpipes and drum in a military tattoo a few years ago – not only do you hear what is played, you feel it; the music is substantial, something strengthening, an extraordinary wonder to witness.

      I appreciate your words. Take care … 🙂

      Hey there, Deni:

      A beautiful moment, last Saturday in the Golden Hour on Watt Mountain – highest point of elevation near High Level.

      Thank you for your kind words and looking in. Take care … 😉

    These are absolutely gorgeous-there is such feeling expressed in the compositions and colors-beautiful, beautiful imagery-and a fitting illustration to Sontag’s quote-

      Hey there, Meg:

      I appreciate your kind words, here. Tones, colours, composition, extraordinary imagery … parts of a Golden hour moment, witnessed and then seen through the camera lens. There’s that idea of walking into something that will become a photograph, something that Susan Sontag and Ansel Adams wrestled with.

      Take care … 😉
