This photo is taken of an ordinary pencil sharpener.
I really enjoy the processes that we as humans continue to improve the way we do menial tasks, the way virtually many of our daily routines have been digitized, optimized, and electronically converted.
Why this photo is significant to me is that these are the very same pencil sharpeners that I used in elementary school. More than ten years have passed and these are still being used. I don’t know how long these will continue to be used but I guess the philosophy here is; “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.
This photo was taken just outside the Kin building when walking to my car.
This is an example of a desire path.
Wikipedia defines desire paths as A desire path is a path created as a consequence of erosion caused by human or animal foot-fall or traffic.
I think that this is beautiful, considering there are perfectly good paved pathways on either side, the general consensus is that humans prefer the shortest distance even if it means walking through snow.
During our class trip to the Mackenzie, I was really taken by the Freedom Tube exhibit. There was a lot of friendly discussion generated and I was really taken by how the visual blending of red and white produced a soft pink. I thought a lot about going through a car-wash, which kind of always terrify me.
This is just one of the mosaics around the university, between the R
Ad hum building and Language building, this wonderful piece can often go without being seen.
Week 5 What an adventure this was!
I was driving around in moose jaw, and 5 deer just jumped out of nowhere!
My girlfriend was in the passenger seat taking pictures for me, and we followed them all the way through downtown. I’m fairly certain they were lost.
Week 6 (below) My girlfriend cosplay as Belle, from beauty and the beast. And we go to a lot of events together. This mock tattoo was done at the science center for a kids party. I just really enjoy the visuals of the red against the yellow of her dress.
Week 7 (above)
This was taken in the parking lot of my work, I guess a Falcon has been attacking pigeons in the area. And it was protecting its kill, which is why I was able to get so close to it. Absolutely beautiful animal.
Week 8 This is my wonderful Cat Wesley, I adopted him 2 years ago, and he just turned 3 in April. If you looked through my phone at any point, you’d see a plethora of Cat photos because I love him so very much.
As you can see, he actually has white fur underneath his black coat, so when he sheds there are always pieces of white fur on his coat.
I call this photo “The great Canadian Tragedy” Whoever rolled up this cup left it in such a way that really tells a story. A little corny but I know Canadians really love their timmies.
I don’t have much to say about this photo. I am deeply saddened and troubled by the recent tragedy that has befallen the Broncos. I had a friend on the bus and I’m praying for her. #Broncosstrong
