This little clay angel lives on one of our bookshelves. Although she lives within reach of my kids, we haven’t had any accidents with her involved, which is a small miracle on its own. She was lit beautifully through a south facing window in the afternoon which made for a pretty easy photograph. A nice, calm scene to enjoy.
The Bar U Ranch is a national historic site in southwest Alberta. A nice drive from Calgary and a great place for photography with the clock turned back over a hundred years.
I was revisiting this photograph that I made last summer. The door to this bunkhouse was open with all of these pieces of ranch hand gear laid out so that it seemed like one of them could walk up any moment. Just one of many interesting scenes they have created at the ranch for visitors to see and feel how life on the western frontier was lived.
