What beauty is and why we’re drawn to it.

That Lens & Getting South

Getting south – it began with a camera lens. While I was required to be in Edmonton for our annual, mid-year teacher conference, I would have three days to myself prior to this conference. I could work on finding a used 28mm Zeiss Biogon… Continue Reading “That Lens & Getting South”

Seeing It, Naming It – There

In Alberta’s northwest my family and I have lived in Fox Lake, Garden River, La Crete and High Level. The roads are long and distances travelled influence our cost of living. It can be cost effective to travel south for supplies if you are… Continue Reading “Seeing It, Naming It – There”

Cold Mist

High Level, Alberta images consider the cold of January – mist reflects light from main street, street lights (-18C); dense, early morning mist surrounds the high school (-42C). Quote to Consider / Inspire: “Photographs open doors into the past, but they also allow a… Continue Reading “Cold Mist”

Long Solstice Shadow

The sky is blue. Long, thin wisps of cloud move at higher altitude in the atmosphere – we could have cloud cover in a day’s time. Following winter solstice, the sun perches low over the horizon in the afternoon. At 2:00 p.m. shadows run… Continue Reading “Long Solstice Shadow”

Morning Haze and Light-play

An early, July, Saturday morning in Edmonton finds me with my camera at play with haze and light. Quote to Consider / Inspire: “Elegance is a virtue. Elegance is simplicity. I learned about elegance … because one day I was in Japan and saw… Continue Reading “Morning Haze and Light-play”

Forgiving, Handheld Aurora

A successful capture and rendering of the Aurora Borealis on an evening’s walk a month ago – surprised to find that my Olympus camera is this forgiving with a handheld shot – ISO 8000, f/4 and 1/3 of a second. Words to Inspire /… Continue Reading “Forgiving, Handheld Aurora”

A Photograph Intended

Christmas, in the first year of my second degree at the University of Alberta, saw the fall term close. The first evening of break found me riding my mountain bike out to a friend’s home in Edmonton’s west end. And, on a snowy, Friday… Continue Reading “A Photograph Intended”

Sunday’s Summer Ends

Planning for class complete, the weekly, notification to students’ parents e-mailed home – it is Sunday’s end. My wife has been planning her week, too. I have taken her out to lunch today. Yesterday, her birthday, she brought to culmination weeks of planning; she… Continue Reading “Sunday’s Summer Ends”

Loosening Memory

A few days drive from home, I stop my truck … my eyes have found something. I walk this scene, allowing my eyes to question ‘What is it that is here?’ I set camera upon tripod. I look and frame what I see –… Continue Reading “Loosening Memory”

Old School Contemporary

'Why be reliant upon secular media sources, literary works penned by atheists, and embittered hearsay to inform your views on religiosity, or worse still to bring about the lack thereof, isn't that as sensible as asking directions to KFC from Ronald McDonald?' ―T. C. M
