Snow is falling as I write. An hour ago the flakes were tiny and hesitant, now they are big and coming sideways at the window. They hang for a few seconds then begin to melt. Some bits streak straight downward while other remnants cling or wriggle slowly. An hour from now this snow will give way to rain.

Clocks slay time… time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life.  William Faulkner

You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by; but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.  James Matthew Barrie

Who forces time is pushed back by time; who yields to time finds time on his side. The Talmud

Near Port Bickerton

Time is a mystifying substance. I find it difficult to know just what an hour is. I know it is 60 minutes, of course, but beyond that everything about the notion of an hour seems rather fluid unless pressured by constraint.

A few days ago I drove to Port Bickerton to follow up on information provided to me many months ago. I couldn’t find the directions I was given or the original emails but figured I could get myself in the vicinity and improvise from there. Part of getting to Port Bickerton from my house involved crossing Country Harbour by ferry. Said ferry departs on the hour. The clock in the car read 11:17 as I backed out the driveway. (more…)

Earlier in the week I hiked in the Port Bickerton area. One of the highlights here is the lighthouse (I’m going to use house instead of houses) which I photographed first from far away.

I composed this image to place the lighthouse in the exact center. It’s the white dot 5-6 kilometers away. (more…)

Barn, Port Shoreham

The cliche about Nova Scotia weather which suggests change each time you blink was very nearly true yesterday. I left home under a brilliant blue sky with conditions looking ideal. My plan was to spend a few hours outside though I departed with no destination in mind. I had a vague intention to go somewhere I hadn’t visited recently, to sit still for a little while with a sup of tea. I considered the possibility of returning to Hadleyville to the little eroding headland to sit where the Bay and Strait divide. I had my camp chair and a Thermos of hot water. (more…)

Frozen grass

Anyone want a pair of snowshoes? They’re going cheap. Actually I’m just kidding, but they have not been any use to me so far this year. With half of winter now in the history books I’m beginning to wonder if any snow accumulation will occur? A very small amount of snow fell Friday night with the temperature steadily increasing. It didn’t amount to more than a few centimeters but produced patches of ice covered grass on my lawn. I thought it might be interesting to try a few shots even though a stiff northwest wind promised to keep things cool.

Once again I spent the day adding keywords to the image database and working on photos I was not happy with at the time they were taken. About a third of those I worked on ended up being abandoned for good because I wasn’t able to salvage them.  (more…)
