Time Passages

Remember that old album and song from 1978 by Al Stewart? Life kind of feels like that these days and these time lapse sequences of our favourite spots in Bunchberry Meadows and Tucker’s Field epitomize the theme. The longest of these sequences starts February 24 and ends on June 23, 2021.

In my last blog, it was simple to recreate these slide shows. A simple copy from one post and paste to the next post would do it. When I tried it on the new blog, it seemed to work, until I closed the post. Upon reopening the post i had slide shows of nothing. After importing the photos into the media section of the new site, I was again able to put them in proper order. The copy and paste again works from post to post.

Little by little,

earthly time slipping away.

Each moment and day

brings the inevitable.

Time travel’s still possible.

The GROVE

The GROVE alternate when Bunchberry was closed and from then after.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. I love your post, Allan and this could be my next photo project to concentrate on! I think there’s even a specific word for the act of repeat photography of the same site. I actually had to use google to find the correct term – it’s known as rephotography. I might have to borrow your idea and find a unique place to take a family photo through the changing seasons. Thanks for inspiring and have a good day. We are just back from the first day of school! So far so good; no tears in sight! Aiva xx

    1. Well there you go. I am a rephotographer. Who knew? It All started at the GROVE, because we were amazed how much it changed over the time of our walks there from winter through spring and into summer. Can’t wait to see fall. Feel free to borrow the idea. I think it is a worthy project during these times. The first day of school is precious. Hopefully you will hear all about it and it will be exciting times. Have a great weekend Aiva. Allan

    1. Thank you. Yes, I did not want to lose the sequence just because I moved blog spots. Can’t wait to add the fall shots in to the sequence when they happen. Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend Linda. Allan

  2. Wonderful post! I love seing the same frame sequencing and taking a different look as time progresses. A great way to see how seasons so drastically change the same scenery. Brilliant idea!
