Boyer River Bridge – Fort Vermilion, Alberta
Looking south, through the bridge crossing the Boyer River en route from High Level to Fort Vermilion, this perspective, looking through the bridge to the incline and curve on the other side becomes my first opportunity to photograph a bridge straight on, from the roadway, along a center line bisecting the road and bridge structure; the place I’ve gotten to in editing recalls impermanence of things man-made.
Listening to – Peter Himmelman’s ‘Impermanent Things,’ John Mayer’s ‘Route 66’ and Ray LaMontagne & The Pariah Dogs ‘For the Summer.’

Metal Geometry – Lac St. Anne, Alberta
A look back edit this morning, time looking to understand the appeal of this image. Again, more metal geometry attracts in the patterned strength of linear lines, the shadow play in degrees of light and shape and the trestle’s placement within context – linearity, water and foliage.
Listening to – Maroon 5’s ‘Lucky Strike,’ Roisin Murphy’s ‘Night of the Dancing Flame’ and Wang Chung’s ‘To Live and Die in L.A..’ Then it’s one of those intriguing songs of observation from all those years ago with Stocki’s ‘Rhythm and Soul’ broadcast on BBC Radio Ulster, a song to recommend – Peter Himmelman’s ‘Impermanent Things.’ Next, it’s Jane Siberry and K.D. Lang with ‘Calling All Angels.’ Finally, it’s a song from Ray Lamontagne & the Pariah Dogs that fits any of us at the end of our teaching year – ‘For the Summer.’
