A Face From the Past?

Humans are great when it comes to superimposing external patterns on random structures. To me these holes in the rocks at Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta looked like a face, even down to the teeth.

Dead trees at Fish Creek

There are a lot of fallen trees at Fish Creek Provincial Park in Calgary, making an interesting contrast with those still living.

Another Fish Creek Image

Work has made it a challenge to blog for a few days, but hoping to change that! In the meantime, another image from Fish Creek Provincial Park in Calgary. Considering how sunny and comparatively warm it was there this past week, it’s hard to believe it was this cold and wintery just a few weeks ago.

A Reaction

Sometimes an image surprises me. Last Saturday afternoon before a concert I had a little while after the rehearsal to wander around with my Hasselblad. I didn’t finish the roll until earlier today (a couple of attempts at self-portraits: the less said the better). I don’t even remember taking this image but the darkness of the forest in this image really struck me; is the shard of sunlight coming through enough to overcome it? It’s funny when an image hits close to home.

End of Season

According to the calendar, we have a few more days of summer left, but the end of the season is near. I was at the Beaches last night, and the weather was lovely, the atmosphere peaceful, but to me tinged with a wistfulness, an awareness of the passing of time.
