love will come set me free, i do believe.
love will come set me free, i know it will.
love will come set me free, yes.


Sikh temple Nanaksar Ji ~ Edmonton ~ February ~ 2016.

  1. Nice work, full with soul, calm, meditation…

    • thank you kindly…it was a peaceful place…and of course fascinating for me as a sloppy buddhist to be there…compose a happy day ~ smiles hedy

  2. Wonderful imagery; may I ask, how did you achieve that effect?

    • thank you Hariod…i used a grunge effect illustrator and then did a little edit in Lightroom…seemed the only way for me to work the background and create a feeling of unity ~ smiles hedy

  3. I don’t know how you achieved the look of antiquity, but the effect is just beautiful. ❤️

  4. Stunning photos and processing

  5. Wow…when I first saw this, I thought you had traveled to the East. Lovely images Hedy. Have a great week. Cheers!

    • thanks Chris…this temple is to the east of etown 😀 thank you i will have a good week and i know you will too…sending you joy ~ smiles hedy

  6. Marvelous, Hedy. The effect makes the present seem like a slice of antiquity, which perhaps it is. This feeling is compounded by realizing these shots were taken in Edmonton. I don’t know much about Edmonton, but it makes me think of oil refining. I spent one night there once and I think I was close to an industrial area that time. I see it is so much more than that… You remind here of worlds within worlds, and how none of it is quite what we think it is…


    • in a nice way i have to say etown is rather unappealing visually BUT i have been intentional to look for beauty here within spaces and places…and i do find beauty every day here in etown…i also know we can do a better job teaching aesthetics…it was fascinating to be within the spaces of the temple under construction…all the work done is volunteer…so for me i was also seeing the beauty within the spaces…seeing the temple from the outside wasn’t at all what i imagined to experience being within the space was both curious and wonderful…the people were very kind and hospitable…sharing foods, water and stories, even hugs 😀

  7. Those are amazing captures with lovely processing to match.

    • Humble thanks Laura ☺️ appreciate you saying 😀 I had a lot fun and learned a little more along the way playing. With these images ~ smiles hedy

      • You’re welcome! It’s so fun playing isn’t it. Hedy!!

        • Yes as I throughly enjoyed the space and people but somehow even making the photos into b/w didn’t feel right…so this post editing was experimental for me ☺️

          • I agree about using your processing choice. But then I do love color. If you haven’t noticed that is. 😉

          • your work is beautiful Laura! And yes I do see most of your work in colour…I am drawn and fond of b/w too…I love still photography very much…compose a beautiful day! ☺️

          • Thank you. It’s so nice to hear people enjoy what I do. I feel like I’m enjoying the places I go with everyone and not just myself. 🙂

  8. Wonderful

  9. This is one exquisite set of photos. I love the hazy treatment you’ve given them – the dimming of the light makes them luminous, and mysterious.

    • Thank you so much Alison ☺️ always humbled and yes I had a lot of fun composing this post…happy day to you ~ smiles Hedy

  10. Deep. Sublime. Love. …Glowing.

  11. consider yourself free

  12. yes, smile, breathe and go slowly. That is what your images transfer. Great work, Hedy

  13. Lovely, lovely composites.
