Update

An update – as its ages since I posted!

The lunar eclipse in Edmonton. This did not turn out the way I had hoped – but it was a great learning experience. I knew (intellectually) that you can get compression with a long lens, but to get those cool photos where the moon is as big as the subject – well, the moon actually has to be as big as downtown. To get that photo, I would have had to go to Sherwood Park, I think.

But it was a super fun adventure getting up at 5:30 am with my stepdaughter on a freezing cold (-22C) morning in January. We weren’t the only lunatics trying to get a photo. There was a tiny traffic jam at McNally school at 6 am.

In these literal (and metaphorical) dark days – I am always chasing the light and the colour. This winter has been gorgeous in terms of light.

One of the other awesome things about photographing in winter is you only have to wait until 4:30 for twilight to get awesome house photos. Doesn’t this one look like you want to come home to it?   $379,900 – 4613 160 Ave NW. Drop me a line if you want me to put you in touch with the realtor.

I am a firm believer in investing early and investing what you can. (have you read The Wealthy Barber?)

Melanie Wade with www.claytonfinancial.com works with families and individuals who want to invest but either don’t have a lot of money or know where to start. If you want to start saving for the long term (or even the short term) and have a limited budget give me a shout and I can connect you with Melanie. And she is a ton of fun.

Before becoming a photographer I studied microbiology and international development at the University of Alberta . One of the stories that always stuck with me was how during the green revolution, development workers gave a bunch of tractors to men in developing countries. They 1. completely neglected the fact that women in these countries did most of the farming and 2. there was little access to gas or spare parts. Then the aid workers were all miffed to see the tractors rusting in the fields and blamed it on the “lazy” locals.
Any development or aid HAS to be appropriate. It has to work locally, be useful and in places where access to technology is limited (either because of finances or geography) it has to make sense.

When I heard about @luckyironfish I thought it was one of the most brilliant inventions ever. 40% of women in the world have anemia About 20% of maternal deaths are from anemia. When you cook with this fish, it saves lives by providing iron – and potentially millions of them.

I bought this @earthsgeneralstore and was so happy to see that our family’s purchase will help another family get a fish in their pot.

Pilgrims Hospice Sunflower Luncheon

I had the pleasure of photographing the Pilgims Hospice Sunflower Luncheon event at the Hotel MacDonald a few weeks ago.

If you don’t know about Pilgrims Hospice, go and check them out. They are an amazing organisation which provides services for people who are facing a terminal illness, and people who are facing grief. At the luncheon, a teacher from a local highschool talked about the amazing services that the Pilgrims Hospice provides to their students who are experiencing loss.

Pilgrims Hospice

This amazing organisation is doing a rather brilliant fundraiser right now.

Edmonton Poet and Author, Anna Sewell

You can find Anna’s work here: https://prairiepomes.com/

Anna has been a constant in Alberta Avenue for over 10 years – she was one of the first people I met when I moved there.

She is fascinating and engaging, throws a mean Robbie Burns party (and serves haggis!), loves the outdoors (we worked on the greening project at Norwood School together) and is a wonderful poet.

I love the light in this photo – Anna’s backyard.

With Anna being an artist, I knew we had to get in some art in the background. We are both in love with the panels at the Royal Alberta Museum by Ernistine Tahedl. When Anna showed up with a red dress, I knew we had to include them in her portraits.
