I made this background today. Just a simple photo I took of a brook accompanied by some text from a Florence and the Machine song. Feel free to download it if you like it.
Some call it hot. It got up past 28’c here today in St. Lewis, and it was WONDERFUL. I took some time to myself after doing housework and ventured down to Shoal Point and hiked around shore. Photographic evidence to follow.
The title is a reflection of what I consider the current state of the fishery to be. It doesn’t take much to see how devastating the blows have been on workers and harvesters alike with so many closures, but it is so much the way of life for people around here, it will not soon be forgotten, nor should it be.
This album will be similar to what you have seen two posts ago, except it was a much prettier day today. The following photos are from ‘Fox Harbour Slip,’ the dry dock that everyone in town uses for their boats, big and small.
I can’t believe I forgot to blog about this! During the last semester of college my friend Carol Hopkins and I took on a special project to help preserve the Mi’Kmaq way of life, including oral histories, by way of a blog. We spoke to many people about their experiences within the culture and were graciously donated rights to photos which have been posted on flickr (note the side bar). Take a look at our blog and please leave a comment!
Some photos from around St. Lewis, Newfoundland and Labrador. Taken today, May 6, 2012.
