I’m beyond it now. The sky, changes, but not because of me. I used to run away. Build campfires below the tracks beside the lake. Swish garbage. Throw the empties. Watch coyotes get lost, eagles circle, nervous geese keeping freezing water open. Figuring the best place was below the bridge. Between the lake and river. […]
A rum-soaked eggnog is the traditional drink during the holidays but why limit yourself to one libation. There’s a whole range of drinks and alcohols that can provide some Christmas spirit during your festive event. One of the newest and most popular trends is infusions. Long outlawed by the provincial liquor laws, bars and restaurants […]
The Third Annual Taste of Home – A Night Among the Stars held recently at the Westin in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities was a gastronomic delight for the more than 500 guests. The event raised an impressive $250,000 for Ronald McDonald House. Located across the street from Alberta Children’s Hospital, the house offers […]
Add a Destination Christmas to your traditions for a more relaxing day and to bring back the magic.
Between November 12 and 29, I went on an expedition to the Subantarctic islands of New Zealand and Australia. Two and a half weeks on a ship through the Southern Ocean, hopping from island to island, watching birds and making photographs, away from civilization… it was a true adventure. I’m telling here the tale of […]
From the 40+ albums I spent significant time with in 2018, 25 rise above the others for their associated memories (and dance moves). Whether on the JBL Charge at home, on my bluetooth headphones at the gym, on my earbuds walking around the city, or on Scoobaru the Subaru’s semi-souped-up speakers, I relished myriad genres […]

Having photographed one All Ireland-winning Camogie legend’s wedding in Cork in May, I found myself in Galway on a wet and windy Saturday in December photographing another All Ireland-winning camogie legend’s wedding. This wedding was that of Emma to Kevin – himself an accomplished hurler – in Emma’s home place of Kinvara, with a journey up around Galway bay to the Ardilaun Hotel for the reception.
The sky above Lake Windermere. Pleiades directly above Taurus. The lights of Windermere and Fairmont. A satellite streaks at the top of the frame. The snow still hasn’t started to fly in earnest. It’s coming, it always does. Meanwhile, I’m still getting used to the cold. My toque goes on in the morning and doesn’t […]
Don’t force things too much, that is a lesson I am gradually learning. Listen to your body and don’t feel bad about not sticking to the plan. Exactly this happened recently and actually it turned out to be exactly what I needed. I too often find myself making plans and being disappointed if things don’t […]
