This continues images from the ME Super tests (see here).
A few days ago I posted the black and white version of this image on Instagram.
But I keep on seeing the colour version in my folder and have decided you should get to see it too.
I took this photo in 2014 and published a black and white version back then (this link).
I can’t believe that all of sudden fall is done and winter is here.
And there are nearly no reds left in the environment, at least not natural ones.
I am off to the Yukon for a few days. Now you might wonder why would anyone leave the mild damp of the coast for the dark cold winter north of 60. In my case, there is a good reason – to take part in the launch of a book that I co-edited and otherwise contributed to. The book is about the Kwädąy Dän Ts’ìnchį project which concerned the recovery and study of a young indigenous man whose body and belongings were found frozen in a glacier in the Tatshenshini-Alsek Park in 1999.
If you click on the picture above it will take you to the book website where you can learn a bit more and order a copy too or find out enough to convince your library to get a copy. CAN$50 for 704 pages is an awfully good deal.
There are about 3 parking spots next to this sign, and the beach down below is a spot that young people like to party late into the night.
Hence the fire prohibition and highly unusual parking restrictions.
I have no explanation for the rubbish, it too is highly unusual in this neighbourhood.
