At the end of August I returned to Western Canada for a 10 day visit, arriving in Calgary, Alberta and heading south towards the US border in British Columbia. One of the days was spent on a road trip east of Calgary to the spectacular landscape of Drumheller and nearby Horseshoe Canyon. On the return journey north via Radium we once again saw the desolate stretches of burned out forests beside the highway. Thankfully there have been far fewer forest fires this summer than in 2018.
I made it back from Canada just in time to take part in another walk across the Broomway in Essex. It was quite different to the walk I took back in March - there were many water pools this time, and lots of algae. It’s an incredible walk.
The big news this month is that I have left my part-time public sector job in Digital Communications where I managed a picture library to begin an MA in Photography. Classes begin early October and I’m excited about the change.
I’m also working towards an exhibition in early 2020 which will be a significant show for me. The show is the culmination of a discussion that began several years ago. While I know most of the work that will be shown, I also want to create a couple of new works specifically for the exhibition.
