Rock Balance

Rock Balance

I was walking along the shores of Lake Winnipeg up around Matheson Island. The water had receded so I could walk along the area that is normally under the lake. It is interesting how the water has picked up and perfectly placed the rock on the middle of some crack lines going off into many directions and angles. You can even see the shadow of the rock from the setting sun in the west.

I like the way your eye is taking in off to many directions yet creating the effect of coming back to the center of the image where the rock is king while appreciating the balance of the composition.

Vimy Ridge 13

Vimy Ridge 13

Vimy Ridge is a famous place and monument in France. It is dedicated to Canadians as they were able to take ground that was kept by the Germans in World War I. It was thought to be impenetrable and unbeatable and yet the Canadians did it. It was part of the Battle of Arras in the Pas-de-Calais Region of France. 

This monument is 30 meters high and was designed by Walter Seymour Allward. It was unveiled in 1936 by King Edward the VIII. It was restored in 2007. Did you know that when you are on those grounds, you are back in Canada? I love this series of photos that I took because to me, it means a great deal and I honour those soldiers who fought and lost their lives for our freedoms. 

This image is part of a series dedicated to Vimy Ridge. There are 13 in total. This is number 13 and the completion of this set.

Empowerment

Empowerment

This is a photograph of the Five Women including Nellie McClung who fought for the Person’s case and was the first province in Canada to extend voting rights to women on January 28, 1916. This fight amongst other women’s fights to vote around the world has led to women like Kamala Harris to become the first African-American, first Asian-American and first woman Vice-President of the United States. This photograph is to remind and honour those women who have fought for equal rights and who have led the way. Kim Campbell was the first female national leader by becoming the 19th Prime Minister of Canada on June 25, 1983. 

According to the Manitoba Historical Society: “This bronze sculpture of the “Famous Five”—the five women whose challenge to the Supreme Court of Canada in 1929 resulted in women being legally recognized as persons under the British North America Act—was unveiled at a ceremony on 18 June 2010. Created by local sculptor Helen Granger Young at an estimated cost of $750,000 on behalf of the Nellie McClung Foundation, the monument is one of three on the grounds of the Manitoba Legislative Building focusing on women, , the others being monuments of Queen Victoria (on the north grounds) and Queen Elizabeth II (on the east grounds near Government House).” 

From Left to Right: Henrietta Muir Edwards, Emily Murphy, Irene Parlby, Louise McKinney, and Nellie McClung 

I have put on pink/purple hue to represent female power and empowerment.

Touch of Red

Touch of Red

I absolutely love the contrast in this autumn scene. The red of the fruit of the tree contrasts nicely with the white of the plants around and in front of it that are nicely frosted in the cold. I like the effect of the light in the picture along with the various textures. I love the mood and effect of the photograph gives off. 

Snow is actually softly falling in the air as I took this photograph. This was taken at the English Gardens at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Chakras Being Unblocked

Chakras Being Unblocked

Click link to see entire creation.

This is my interpretation of when your chakra system is blocked – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. There is hope as I see the healing sun beaming from the upper left healing down a rainbow of energy and light to cleanse the energy centres of negativity and energy blockages. This is originally an abstract artwork with acrylic paints.

According to chakras.info website the following is very interesting:

“Each of the chakras in the body is paired with an endocrine gland and governs its function.

Root chakra (1st) — Reproductive glands (testes in men; ovaries in women); controls sexual development and secretes sex hormones.

Sacral chakra (2nd) — Adrenal glands; regulates the immune system and metabolism.

Solar Plexus chakra (3rd) — Pancreas; regulates metabolism.

Heart chakra (4th) — Thymus gland; regulates the immune system.

Throat chakra (5th) — Thyroid gland; regulates body temperature and metabolism.

Third Eye chakra (6th) — Pituitary gland; produces hormones and governs the function of the previous five glands; sometimes, the pineal gland is linked to the third eye chakra as well as to the crown chakra.

Crown chakra (7th) — Pineal gland; regulates biological cycles, including sleep.”

Royal Newfoundland Regiment

Mikawoz Royal Newfoundland Regiment

Royal Newfoundland Regiment

On this day, Dominion Day or Canada Day, July 1, 1916, the Royal Newfoundland Regiment faced the German army at Beaumont-Hamel on the first day of the Battle of Somme, inflicting 90 percent casualties.

According to Wikipedia, there were a number of memorials erected by the Newfoundland government after the war. “ Four were erected in France at Beaumont-Hamel, Gueudecourt, Masnières, and Monchy-le-Preux and the fifth is Courtri/Kortrijk in Belgium.” A sixth monument stands in Bowring Park in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

The memorials are all centrally identical featuring the emblem of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment being the caribou standing atop of Newfoundland granite appearing to roar in the direction of the enemy. This photograph was taken at Beaumont-Hamel in France. We walked around the paths.

Bee Flower

Bee Flower

I look this image of the bee in the flowers in Freeport, Bahamas. What I like about this photograph that I took is the fact that the flower is in various stages of development just like people from baby to youngling to adult. I find the spiky nature particularly appearing which I guess would be like the teenage years.

Water Lilies in Colour

I took the photograph of the water lilies in Freeport, Bahamas. I then decided to give it some colour and give it some darker features using filters and effects. The result is like a painting which I hope you like as much as I do.
