A Sunday’s end – planning for class is complete; the weekly, parent newsletter has been e-mailed home. My wife has used this day to plan for her class, too; I took her out for a lunch meal – the day after her birthday, the day after she had collaborated in planning a spectacular birthday evening for her close friend and teaching colleague who has turned fifty. She’s done well, she cares immeasurably for her friend who’s almost family to us. Good. The weekend has gone by. Evening moments allow for Netflix, listening to CKUA via the Internet, time for reading, time for looking back through edited photos – summer images from days in and around Canada’s Banff National Park, shot in after hours of a five day conference at the Banff Centre for the Arts. Seeing now, some possibilities for the photographs as edited; in particular, the Banff Spring image could have been shot from higher elevation with a telephoto to rid the image of branches; I’ll need to try again – I now have intention for this shot.

Listening to – Hanni El Khatib’s ‘Save Me,’ Beck’s ‘Say Goodbye,’ Cloud Cult’s ‘You Were Born,’ Jim James’ ‘State of the Art (A.E.I.O.U.) and Junip’s ‘Line of Fire.’

Quote to Consider/Inspire: “The more ridiculous you look while taking a photo, the better that photo will probably be. Photographers can’t be afraid to get into strange and awkward positions to get the shot they’re after.” — Pei Ketron
