52 Week Photo Challenge – 2nd 10 weeks

I wonder how many people take a lot of shots on their smart-phones or even cameras, and never off-load the images onto a computer. Next question… how many people actually work with the images on the computer? In the old… Continue Reading →

First 10 weeks … What? AGAIN?

At the beginning of January, I started a new 52 week photo challenge (#dogwood2017) and the first week’s assignment was rule of thirds. Although the rule of thirds is a compositional thing, I had a very definite idea of what… Continue Reading →

This is not a ski trip post…

… (But there are some skiing photos) As I write this, it’s about 10 °C outside. Centennial Park, where I teach skiing, never opened this year, and Wiarton Willy didn’t see his shadow. I don’t care what certain people down… Continue Reading →

20,000 tried… only a few survived!

Itilleq, Greenland (Day 11)

This morning there was a AC Q&A panel meeting with much talk about the conditions of the Inuit – political, social and economic. Seems like the answer would be more and better education, which is expensive because of the large… Continue Reading →

Ilulissat, Greenland (Day 10)

This morning, we had a very interesting session about “Intergenerational Connections”, hosted by 87 year old Sally. The young people were very much into this, and I spent about half an hour holding 3 ½ month old baby Jane. In… Continue Reading →

Uummannaq, Greenland (Day 9)

This morning, we landed for a short visit to an ancient cemetery at Qilakitoq. Then, back at the ship, we had our polar dip, but it wasn’t too cold… about 5ᵒC. Spent the afternoon in the town of Uummannaq, Greenland… Continue Reading →
