This year’s Kelby World Wide Photo Walk occurred on Saturday, 6 October 2018. Were you out for the photo walk?

The walk in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories was led by photographer and teacher, Brent Currie. It began at 1:00 p.m. at the Rotary Centennial Park, took our group along ‘Ragged Ass Road,’ made famous by way of Tom Cochrane’s tune of the same name. There was good discussion about photography, several discoveries about what is possible when using a camera, sharing of ideas in question and answer, encouragement to try the same/similar shots and a momentum of photographer camaraderie built through the few hours we spent together. The walk ended with an opportunity to quaff ale or sip wine at the NWT Brewing Company. It was a time to talk through and about photos, consider the need for gear and explore/share in people’s work and endeavors. A good, good crew.

In terms of locale, this second photo walk in Yellowknife was an opportunity to explore Old Town Yellowknife with the group and then, later, on my own.

Yellowknife is a city on the Great Slave Lake, the tenth largest lake in the world with a maximum depth of 614m. It is also a city set on the Canadian shield, on rock that has been smoothed by glaciers (last ice age). The landscape is an intriguing setting for me, a flat-lander. I went to the Bush Pilot’s monument and worked through two photo-stitches from the monument terrain leading out across the lake to Joliffe Island; the image holds most buildings on either side of McDonald Drive – businesses with names like Yellowknife Courier Service, Dancing Moose Café, Aurora Geosciences Ltd., Old Town Glassworks, Bayside Bed and Breakfast, Yellowknife Garage, Old Town Warehouse, Aurora & Inukshuk Olive Company and Yvonne Quick Heritage Wharf. The Yellowknife bay holds the curiosity of houseboats, all are colourful, each is a residence that allows its owner to avoid land taxes.

These images are the first I have edited – have a look.

Quote to Consider / Inspire – “To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place …. I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” – Elliott Erwitt

Listening to – U2’s take on an Aussie Folk song, ‘Van Dieman’s Land’ and ‘The Miracle (of Joey Ramone).’
