This is, because that is. This is not, because that is not.

deep in the evening

i guess this is best

is this best?


University of Alberta, South Campus ~ Edmonton ~ August 2017

  1. Love this Hedy 💛

  2. idappaccayatā = conditions-of-these-ness

    Made me smile.

  3. Love corn fields at this time of year. There is something very special about them!

    • thank you kindly Key Image…and yes here we also have corn mazes…i think they would be fun to document too…hoping you have a snappy week ~ smiles hedy 😀

  4. A feast for the eyes, heart and soul. Great post, Hedy. 🙂
    Wishing you a joyous Sunday, love Genie. ❤️

  5. Aren’t fields just beautiful. I drive by some in the neighboring town on the way to and from work and never tire of seeing them. You captured these beautifully Hedy. Cheers!

    • oh yes Chris…so many patterns…life on the land…and the smokey sundown added that pink tone…so pretty to me…have a wonderful new week of teaching! sending you joy! smiles hedy 😀

  6. Really beautiful photos–the many phases of harvest! I know that field well…I wonder if that feather is from a Canada Goose? I see so many of them gathering there. Sometimes coyotes…and once in awhile, a porcupine. Hope your long weekend is wonderful!

    • thank you dear Raven Wolfe 😀 you know these spaces too…and the little feather is a message from my father…he is now the goose totem for me…and it was magical that night on the farm so many geese gathering together…and yes the weekend day trips…always lots to see and do…i noticed i haven’t seen many coyotes this summer…soon we will connect…and see the new barn i hope! smiles for a beautiful day <3 😀

  7. Gah, so beautiful! My favourite shots are first, and especially last. Hope you’re enjoying this hot bubbly long weekend.

    • thank you so much Alison…yes such a beautiful evening…and it was a delicious sunshine weekend…outside time is the best…hope you also enjoyed your long weekend…now a short “work” week wonder what the Buddha would say about that? 😉 smiles xo

  8. let’s make bread.

  9. Your photos always reveal the world’s heart, Hedy. These were lovely, the wisp of feather held by the shadow, the sky melting the sunlight into a buttery landscape, the unexpected vibrancy of the color green. The life, arising from the ashes of life.


    • this is a university farm so i imagine they are studying growth and seeds etc…but yes that green was a surprise for me…it was a smokey day so i knew the sundown would be pink (ish) and it was so pretty…and quiet too 😀 have a wonderful writing day i will come and peek too 😀 hugs hedy

  10. I love the photos you chose for the Buddhist words. Unusual, yet obvious, if you know what I mean

  11. It is, is it not?
    Love the crop photos. (Remind me of my childhood holidays in Normandy) Was that wheat or “Orge”? ( Not sure what the english word is)… barley… 🙂

    • it is 😀 and i’m not sure what grain it is…going to guess wheat…i like barley in soups thank you for the idea Brian 😀 happy tuesday…wanted to say monday but we had a holiday yesterday 😀

      • Labour day, right? I’m almost certain it is barley. Look at the “beard” on the grains, much much longer than wheat… 🙂

        • Brian i’m so urban…nature is so beautiful i have enjoyed being outside more in my 50’s than ever before…also not doing a full time job allows me to be outside which i cherish more than i ever imagined…Barley it is! 😀

          • Barley is also critical for brewing beer. 😉
            Enjoy the outside in the summer. Here we have our first sunny day after almost a month. Unbelievable. (We caught the tail of all those hurricanes)

          • 28 now tomorrow 12 🙂 all weather changes here 😀 enjoy your summery days Brian! and yes i can imagine tail winds…but are you in Amerika? smiles hedy 😀

          • Nope. I am French, but we moved to Mexico nearly 30 years ago and settled here. We are neighbours. 🙂 Brian

          • well good so when i plan a Mexico trip i will contact you Brian…i’ve been a Cuba seeker…i’ve only travelled once to Mexico…now we have friends who own homes in different parts of Mexico so i will have a few place to see…do you follow Javier García-Moreno his blog of Mexico is truly beautiful…makes me want to see more…sending you from rainy etown! 😀

          • Do. Contact. 🙂 I don’t follow Javier. Made a note. Sorry about the rain, we’re just celebrating the third consecutive sunny day here in weeks. Pffff. 😉

          • the rain here is needed…smoke free is also wonderful…enjoy the sunshine tomorrow we will also have our blues skies back!


  12. All the different textures found in just harvested field are fantastic. Have a great week Hedy.

    • yes i love the lines on the land…they go forever 🙂 the week is full and lots to do! 😀 hoping your travelling days are treating you well Terry ~ smiles hedy 😀

  13. what stunning captures. Tender, calm and powerful at the same time. A great series, Hedy. 😊😊😊 send you Smiles for a tender, calm and powerful week 😊

  14. I don’t know if it’s best, but it’s damn good! I love your meditation on wheat, close up and from a distance, patterned and pretty. Especially the 4th and 5th together, I think. But they’re all of a piece, too.

    • dear Lynn you’re the best! and i appreciate you saying which images work for you…learning to cull is a good skill for me to work on…not that i fall in love with my images but i wonder with a wider audience what’s best 😀 i hope you have the best day! many smiles hedy 😀

      • It’s hard to predict what people will like, but seeing the reactions is how you slowly get a feel for it, right? The wheat shafts lying on the ground has such a strong graphic presence. Having less saturation in the middle intensifies that. The stubble photo makes a great pattern, and lighting it unevenly keeps it full of life. We’re under smoke here (I think you’ve had problems with that too?) so it’s hard to sleep at night. Ash is floating down, from a fire 80 miles away! Crazy. I’ll feel better when it cools down and I can breathe easier, but it’s all temporary so I can deal with it! 😉

        • for sure each day is a different response…Brian is telling me that it is barley and as an urban woman i really don’t know grains at all…but i like the patterns and the smokey light was so different this evening…i’ve had headaches from smoke here this week…and i’m wishing for some rains…but that seems trivial in light of what is happening down south…the whole world going crazy…we all need a big sleep…can’t imagine what outsiders in space are witnessing as they see planet earth right now…have a peaceful day ~ smiles hedy 😀

          • Barley – I stand corrected! I don’t know the difference visually, either. I photographed a field that I thought was wheat – gotta be careful about those assumptions.
            We explored a bit north of here yesterday and it RAINED! I don’t know if rained here, not much if it did, but the smoke is gone. It’s really hard to function amidst that heavy haze. Hope you get rain and a clearing, cool wind soon. The western hemisphere is reeling this week…crazy times…

          • ahhhh i have no doubt i would be corrected so i learn more about grains these days too 😀 never assume i was taught that many times as a little person and even now 😀 we’ve had winds and now blue sky i’m so pleased the smoke is gone…i can’t imagine living in that for 1 month or more…as people have had to endure the harsh fires this summer…truly i wind and blue sky today is delightful…and yes crazy time indeed…no telly or news today…it’s all too much…smiles for a snappy day Lynn…i’ve been editing for a community event…i had much fun this weekend! have a peaceful day ~ smiles hedy 😀

  15. Such a beautiful, evening set of photographs…so nice, Hedy. While I liked your Toronto street images, my preference is for the prairie. 🙂

    • oh yes Mic it was for sure…and yes some prefer street…i’ve been encouraged by “pro” photographers here to keep going with my street works…but i love the land and this work feeds my soul…i also love to see the land and sky…i never tire of it…being on the streets takes a lot more energy but i need that too so i feel alive…and that i’m here on this earth…as i often imagine a different world 😀 have a beautiful day Mic ~ many smiles hedy 😀

      • Oh, don’t misunderstand me. I don’t mean to discourage your street work. It is me…I have never been able to relate to city life. Your photographs span a wonderful range of subjects. I always look forward to seeing your next set!

  16. right. and an overwhelming harvest
