Looking up from my Ford-focused Canon 60D the highway held a semi hauling a flat-deck trailer with a Diversified Bus on it, its roof crushed – a sight as curious as it is disturbing. Diversified runs buses in northeastern Alberta. A passenger bus like… Continue Reading “From My Ford-Focused Canon 60D”
No longer gliding forward on each tire’s balloon cushion this vehicle slumps to the earth in resignation. Snow’s first fall dusts this Plymouth Savoy’s pitted hood, scars of gravel-sprayed journeys. Paint erodes, chrome still gleams. The vertical of trees’ up and down becomes contrast… Continue Reading “Erode & Gleam”
B-side images, ones that haven’t made the first cut reveal in their review how often I am impressed with technology’s artistry that comprises what becomes a vehicle. A veritable used car lot, these images display resurrected lives of vehicles, being breathed into new Life through… Continue Reading “B-Side Catch-all & Round-up”
Lingering, those photos remain, the ones I would not at first glance think of returning to – the scouting eye’s first glimpse and first understanding of subject, the first impression of subject captured through the camera lens by my eye. Editing’s go-round exposes each… Continue Reading “Lingering Photos, Their Treasure”
After a long and somewhat unproductive day, I make my way to one of Grande Prairie’s music shops – Long & McQuade (formerly G.P. Music). The workflow of salespeople helping customers is somewhat disjointed as experienced staff help junior staff learn the ropes; it’s Christmas… Continue Reading “As Found In My Home Away from Home – Grace”

Then, you plan your photograph thinking it through in terms of image outcome – you determine… Continue Reading “First Images & Former Images”
Quality vehicle restoration receives appreciation for its thorough undertaking (or perhaps its state of completion) – front to back and from the ground up the vehicle is brought back to strength and often is improved through innovation. Often the vehicle restored is re-engineered to… Continue Reading “Innovation’s Ah-hah, Restoration and Reminiscence”
Week’s end – all that one could do, done … and then some. Will Brady frets Bob Dylan’s Buckets of Rain – instrumental and blue, music with which to wash the week’s residue away. Time to park oneself, for a time, and to look… Continue Reading “Done, Did, Done – Week’s End”
Paired – Mercurys paired, power poles paired, pairs of headlights and missing headlights paired. The image presents some wide angle distortion amid its experimentation mixing colour with black and white. Listening to – U2’s Gone and reminiscence regarding Michael Hutchence (Hutch) from INXS, …… Continue Reading “Pairs Paired”
