International Overdose Awareness Day 2019

I was priviledged to be asked by Healing Hearts Edmonton to photograph International Overdose Awareness Day this year.

The crisis of dirty drugs is killing brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, daughters and sons. Every single one of the people at this event thought it could not happen to their family and they don’t want it to happen to yours.

The take away message was: tell your kids not to do drugs, over and over. Then then tell them if they do – this is how to do them safely, because the chances of them coming into contact with fentynal laced drugs is very, very high. (Don’t do drugs alone. If people in your circle use drugs, get a nanoxylone kit and learn to use it. Know the signs of overdose. There is a Good Samaritan law in Alberta – if someone you are with overdoses and you call 911, you will not be prosecuted, even if you have or are using drugs).

And politicians. Please look at what Portugal is doing and change how we do things here. Too many people are dying.

Lichen

Did you know that Beatrix Potter used to be a mycologist (mushroom scientist) before she was a children’s author. And it was she who discovered that lichen is a symbiotic relationship between lichen and algae? If you find some old mycology books (there is one at the University of Alberta), you might find her beautiful drawings of mushrooms and lichen. You’ll recognise her style.

I too have always been fascinated by the minitature. I have a degree in microbiology – and although I have not used it professionally, I am fascinated by the natural world.

These lichen grow all over the deck at the lake cabin. I have always meant to photograph them. They look like little worlds – something out of a Dr. Suess book – and this year, I finally got around to it (mostly because my husband brought the macro lenses, which I always forget.)

Beekeeping in New Mexico

Documentary photography for businesses is one of my favourite things to do. While in New Mexico a few weeks ago, I photographed my sister who is a beekeeper.

She’s pretty cool.

Interview

I was interviewed by the wonderful Catherine Potter. If you’d like to hear what I have to say about photography, storms, relaxing in front of the camera and cow poop, have a listen.
