2015: A year of valleys and peaks.

2015: it has been a year of deep valleys and high peaks for me, both literally and figuratively.

It began in the hospital, at the bedside of someone I deeply care for.  Here, winter and spring blurred by slowly in a haze of emotion, my life taking on a holding pattern as I entered a full-time support role for those around me.  The next thing I knew, it was summer.  At this point, the health challenges still had not gone away, but they had changed and those of us intimately…

    Love your visual stories. That last shot is awesome. Very reminiscent of Paul Zizka.ReplyCancel

    I’m glad you both like that last one! It was really cold Karyn…but we worked up enough of a sweat schlubbing through the snow drifts that we were fine!ReplyCancel

Matlock Pier, MB, Canada

To get things started off, this is an image I shot in the twilight before sunrise out at Matlock, MB.  This quiet little town is on the edge of Lake Winnipeg.  …
