Slow Adventures

October 13, 2009

Hello again,

In this post, I will attempt to explain my absence over the last several months and give a sort of recap of what’s been happening around here.

This blog is about adventures, photography and my relationship with nature.  Sometimes these are exciting times on fast moving rivers, and sometimes they’re stimulating hikes to the top of a mountain.  But sometimes, as is the case in the following post, adventures unfold so slowly that the excitement disguises itself as contentment, or a feeling of accomplishment…  and harvest time has brought my summer’s adventure to light.

The slow adventure of gardening

We moved in during the week of my birthday (June 29) so I didn’t get my garden in until very late.  I did get started on June 30th.

June 30th:

I selected the garden plot, and rented a tiller…

Kingsburg - Paul Maybee

Kingsburg - Paul Maybee

This is a photo I took today in Kingsburg, NS of a fallen down fishing shack.  Inside there are old rotten lobster traps and floorboards.  I remember this collapsed building from my childhood, and I don’t if it’s changed much since then.  There’s something I find romantic about these old buildings that have been abandoned and forgotten, and I wonder what they were like when they were built.

Morning moonrise - Paul Maybee

Morning moonrise - Paul Maybee

This photo was taken on January 22nd on a very cold morning walking to work.  I had just begun to follow the moon’s pattern on a website called Time and date which is a fascinating website and shows the time the moon (and sun) rises, sets, how much of the moon is illuminated, weather, and any other information you could possibly want to know about a day.

This photo is a 1 second time lapse photo, f3.5 at 400 ISO for anyone who wants to know.  I just use trial and error to get good photos, and this one turned out to be something special.

goodnight!
