Long hours of tired travel, southward along a back way, High Level, Fort Vermilion, Red Earth, Slave Lake and Edmonton to share time with a father in critical care dealing with his body’s weakening and the stumbles and tumbles associated with later Life. Along the way, to interrupt the hold of travel’s fatigue I stopped when I could to gather images and movement – restorative stuff. The road and bridge over the Wabasca River were the first dry area in June’s rain and served as my first stop. The Wabasca River flows through north and south Tallcree reserves and eventually feeds into the much, much bigger flow of the Peace River. Cloud work, the bridge and the lines within the image – each are elements attracting my eye to these images.
