Featured Portfolio of Concert Photographs All About Jazz is currently featuring a portfolio of our concert photographs – all abstract, experimental, impressionistic. Several are multiple frame images shot in time with the beat. “The subject of tonight’s lecture is rhythm. The beat. The driving force that holds our lives together. Without rhythm your heart wouldn’t […]
Five Week Road Trip Through Saskatchewan Our research map listed a lot of places to go, things to do, and people to meet. We decided on a more centralized approach: get a B&B for several nights and do forays out to photograph. Hanna was our first stop, try Chevy in the Levy at dawn again […]
One Week Road Trip Into Southern Alberta Before heading out to Saskatchewan for five weeks we decided to sweep through the Alberta locations our research had targeted – get them out of the way. We were already familiar with the Drumheller area, and the Atlas #4 Coal Mine National Historic Site, where a Blood Moon […]
Two Week Reconnaissance Road Trip We wanted to test the effluent – see if there was enough abandoned dereliction left around to warrant a longer photography expedition. So the adventure began: we hopped in the Jeep and headed south, mostly Saskatchewan ghost towns, for two weeks. We absolutely found stuff: perishing, disintegrating, crackling: Whizz Bang […]
Dereliction—Colours of Abandonment Our latest photography expeditions are being compiled – just in time for Exposure Festival in February. Dereliction is an eye on things abandoned: ignored, forgotten, forlorn, fading away, dismissed by our modern predilection for everything new. Following the Ghost Town Trail along obsolete railroads: from Tiny to Biggar, Eastend to Westbend, Smuts […]

Behind our Ashburton lodging grew a potato patch. Behind the potato patch withered a row of little old cars. The land owner had erected a flash new Quonset to showcase his bright, shiny, restored car collection. I left a note on the locked gate. The spud grower phoned, and through his rather muddy accent, said […]
Don’t let the bed springs bite! And if they do, just grab a camera, and shoot some black and blue. Reflected gold helps warm up the bed with a sparkle of sunlight. Just some beautiful old detritus stashed away at the Sandon Ghost Town scrap metal dealership. West Kootenay, BC.
“There are no roads here” (Corb Lund)… Nearly everywhere else on the Alberta map is criss-crossed by right-of-ways surveyed every mile east/west, every two miles north/south. These two empty townships of wild aspen parkland and native prairie grasslands are the Rumsey Natural Area and Environmental Reserve – hummocky moraine left behind by retreating continental ice […]
