Steps Through Time





Steps Through Time

I took these photos of Kate Corbett, from Holyrood at the time, as she participated in Steps Through Time, a historical walk through the town of Brigus.  I've included 5 photos of her as a "sea spirit".  in the last two photos it was raining, but the performance went on!

I do have an album of photos showing the rest of the performers.

Bakeapples/Cloudberries




Bakeapples/Cloudberries

Bakeapples (or cloudberries) grow in some bogs around the province.  Years ago, I discovered two bogs in the hills behind my house.  Each year in late July, I picked enough berries to make desserts.  I haven't picked them for several years, because my back can't take bending over and stretching to pick the berries.

If you are interested in seeing more photos of bakeapples, feel free to check my Facebook Album.

Religious Art

Religious Art

It is Sunday and I happened upon this image which is a combination of 3 photos.  I created this to be used as the cover of a DVD produced for Grade 6 religion classes in Newfoundland and Labrador.  The Kirk is located in St. John's, the small wooden church was photographed on the Random Passage movie set, and the chalice was in All Saints Anglican Church in Tilton, Newfoundland and Labrador.

Woodland Caribou




Woodland Caribou

When choosing a random photo for this morning, I landed on caribou photos.  I chose 4 to share on my Blog and all were scanned from slides taken in the 1990s near Cape Pine Lighthouse.  In those days there were around 6000 animals in the herd at that time.  The last time I went down to photograph caribou, I didn't even see one.  Luckily, I have lots of photos of them already!

Snowshoe Hare




Snowshoe Hare

In the spring, we always see a snowshoe hare or two around our yard in Holyrood/  They like eating the new shoots of grass and dandelion leaves.  After a couple of weeks, they disappear back into their forest home.  

I do have an album of photos on Facebook, if you would like to see more photos of them.

Nassau




Nassau

In 2012 my wife and I did a transatlantic cruise and, because of a medical emergency, we made an unscheduled stop in Nassau.  We walked around the town and, of course, I took lots of photos.  This morning I happened upon the photo of a woman making crafts for sale.  

To be honest, I didn't really feel that safe there, especially after we got out of the main part of the town.  We began to notice armed guards at several buildings and turned around and headed back to the main part where there were more people.

Blueberries

I remember photographing these blueberries on the hills behind my house in Holyrood.  The berries with morning dew ade an excellent photographic subject.  After I took the photo, I ate the berries so this is the only image of these berries!  :)

Cape Bonavista




Cape Bonavista

If you have visited Cape Bonavista, you have definitely noticed the craggy cliffs!  You will also understand why they call our province "The Rock"  I have been to this area of the province several times and am always impressed by the beautiful scenery.

Spider


Spider

I often photograph spiders and insects that I notice around my yard.  I realize many people do not like "creepy crawlies" but they are an important part of the ecosystem.  Each species have their niche and spiders help keep the population of insects in check.  Next time you see a spider, don't kill it.  Let it go!!

Tulips





Tulips

A little colour for you today!  I chose photos of tulips in my yard on May 29, 2013.  For years, I grew a variety of tulips, but one year a young bull moose discovered them and every year since moose have come to my yard to feast on the flowers and leaves.  Last year, I dug up most of the bulbs and replanted them in a different part of the yard.  We had several blooms, but they didn't last too long.  We have a lot of moose around my property in Holyrood.

I do have a Tulips album on Facebook -  https://www.facebook.com/pg/kbrucelaneflowers/photos/?tab=album&album_id=3166422803385848

Trinity Bay




Trinity Bay

Today's photos were taken from the Trans Canada Highway near Clarenville looking out toward Random Island.  It was an overcast and foggy day and I liked the silhouettes of the land.

Art Andrews

Art Andrews

The photo I chose this morning was taken in Trinity, Trinity Bay in 2004.  I knew Art Andrews fairly well because I worked with him on brochures for his businesses in Trinity and Trinity East.  He was a gentleman who was always friendly when I dropped by the Dock Marina in Trinity.  He took thetime to pose for this photo as was leaving the dock in his sailboat.

Art died several years ago.  RIP

Harry's Harbour



Harry's Harbour

In 2014, we went to Harry's Harbour on a photo trip and we were lucky to see several icebergs in the harbour.  Today, I happened upon this sequence of photos showing a small fish store with an iceberg in the background.

I don't have a Facebook Album yet but will create one soon.

Chuckley Pear

Chuckley Pear, Holyrood, June 14, 2003

Chuckley Pears are fairly plentiful around my property in Holyrood. They flower around mid-June and produce fruit in late August - early September. The fruit is edible, but the birds get them around here. I have never harvested the berries.

I do have a Facebook album of photos showing flowers, fruit and fall colours.
