On the winding, narrow highway that hugs the Gulf of St. Lawrence on the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec flows this tall, narrow waterfall. I have photograhed it on many occasions but this time I converted this image of a detail of the fall into black & white.
I photographed this small roadside waterfall near Joffre Lakes Provicial Park east of Pemberton, British Columbia near the Canadian West Coast. At the time I captured this image I envisoned it would translate well in black & white.
World Water Day 2014 was observed On March 22nd. This year's theme as expressed by the United Nations is "energy and water". This is a good opportunity for each one of us to think about how we can best use this important resource, including how we can conserve more of it.
Cancer is everywhere and we have all likely been touched by it. Many of us have our own personal stories. For me, cancer has been part of my family since the age of five, having lost both my parents, a grandmother, many uncles, aunts, nephews, cousins, friends and neighbours since then. Fortunately, great strides have been made in the battle against cancer during this last decade which has given many of us much hope.
This afternoon, I went to see 'Cancer Crossing' at the Blankstein Gallery in the Millennium Library in Winnipeg. This is a pre-launch exhibition for the e-book which is scheduled to be published in the near future. I look forward to seeing the e-book and hopefully a hard copy will also follow.
I was quite impressed with the large black & white photographs of those who shared their stories with us. The photographer(s) captured very personal moments and I found the images quite expressive. The stories are compelling and brought back a lot of memories of both pain and joy. I highly recommend this exhibition of fine black & white photographs which runs from March 1-31, 2014.
I spent an hour this morning photographing orchids at the 2014 Manitoba Orchid Society Show and Sale. The show is currently held at the Assiniboine Park Conservatory from Friday March 21 to Sunday March 23 (9:00 AM to 4:30 PM). There are plenty of interesting flowers to view. This is a great way to welcome SPRING!
