Railway Bridge

Railway Bridge – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

This is a photograph I took that just reminds me of the old west. Across the mountain pathway, along the valley, you have an old-fashioned metal railway bridge crossing over the waters and land.

I love the movement and flow in the mountain with waved shapes as a backdrop. To me it is a gorgeous sight sculpted by God. I have made it into a black and white picture as I like the effect and feel of it.

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

Growing Old

Growing Old – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

This photograph is not of sadness for a barn that has seen better years and usage but is one of hope too. The barn is boarded up and barely standing. The old red tractor seems to be working still and is in use in making old-fashioned rectangular bails of hay.

One does not have to give up that which is aged. It is an antique and with the passage of time as with people, we should venerate and respect the elderly.

I see a happy face on the barn as one who reminisces of glorious by-gone days. I have put sparkles of light throughout the picture to offer feelings of expectancy in the future. Wishing everyone the best in their pursuit of their lives no matter whatever their calendar age or years.

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

Fleurs Blanches

Fleurs Blanches

These are beautiful white flowers or Fleurs Blanches found in the old Conservatory Building at Assiniboine Park. The building is no longer there and has been demolished. I hope the plants found a good new home. 

This photograph has Asiatic Lilies and Arum Lilies being showcased. They are exquisite in their elegance and perfection.  They are romantic.

They were situated in a spot that many people would walk by and not even notice them but they definitely caught my eye. The Asiatic Lilies look as if there are multiple trumpets sounding off in all the directions.

No Roof

No Roof

I am intrigued by old and decaying buildings. I think that they represent, once upon a time, a function and a story. This structure served its purpose once upon a time. It is part of a farm and may have been used in a number of different ways. 

The sad part is that the basic outline is there but essentially there is no roof. All the elements of rain, snow, wind and even sun can get in. The bad and the good. It is not protected from the weather having to give in to the harsh climate of the prairies.

Is its function gone? Is it no longer needed or necessary? Yet, it stands and it is resolute just like people are despite aging and being elderly. If only you were a fly on the wall and could hear the stories it would tell – the fun, the laughter and the sadness.

Pump It Up

I don’t know what it is about old-fashioned water hand pumps, but I really, really like them. I remember trying (playing) with them when I was a little kid. It was fun to see that if you worked at it really hard, it would produce water (results). 

From the MotherEarthNews website, “The pump principle has changed little since its inception, whether for the piston pump invented in 275 BC by Ctesibius, or the rope pump invented in China during the 1st century BC. Hand pumps were still commonly used in the countryside of the United States and Europe in the 19th century.”

Blocked

I took this photograph of an old, derelict house that has had its window blocked by overgrown trees and plants. I have always been amazed how quickly nature overtakes what man has built once it has been abandoned. It is a testament to the strength, power and resiliency of Mother Earth.

Rejuvenation

Mikawoz Rejuvenation

Rejuvenation

I took this on one of my hikes and found beauty in the decaying of trees in the forest. From the old and death, comes rejuvenation and regrowth. It is a positive way of looking at life as we all have seasons that come and go as winter is to spring as to summer and to autumn.

I like the various states the wood is in and also the way the flowers have come to fruition amongst the rotten state of affairs.

Rainbow Snakeskin

I have created an image from a pen drawing and added a rainbow of colours. It is reminiscent of a snake shedding its skin. It is like what we do when we give up old bad habits and replace them with better ones and thought processes.

Old Rusted Miner’s Cart

Old Rusted Miner’s Cart

We went for a hike in Kootenay National Park in British Columbia 86 kilometers from Radium Hot Springs. We came across this old rusted miner’s cart. I think it is really interesting.

According to the Parks Canada website, Paint Pots are “ Iron-rich pools and ochre beds, culturally significant to indigenous people including the nearby Ktunaxa Nation.”

Old Water Pump

Old Water Pump

On a dark, gloomy day I came across an old water pump beside an old relic of a building. It is still there despite having been abandoned a long time ago. I found it while driving in the Interlake Region of Manitoba, Canada.
