It began a very long time ago - 1991 - when the family went camping in Quetico. After sorting out initial difficulties we reached Russell Lake and camped across a bay from Chatterton Falls. One day, Vicki and I paddled across to stand on the bank of the river just to watch the rapids when down the river toward us flew a bald eagle. We watched as it banked before us and swooped down on the swirls of water where rapids meet lake. It caught a fish in its talons, rose up and majestically flew back up the river out of sight.

In 2009 Vicki and I visited Thüringen. I was running the 43.5km race and Vicki took the opportunity to visit several factories and museums displaying porcelan figures . beautiful hand-made/hand painted objects including a bald eagle catching a fish.
In July 2015 my Pentax broke. In August I was in Killarney Provincial Park for the Perseid Meteor shower and the loon count, and no camera. So I started an art project on a park's picnic table. It looked like this:
I borrowed Vicki's camera to take the photos.It gives a new meaning to pixels, doesn't it! However, I couldn't take it with me - or could I?
I bagged it!
And while Vicki was away this August, 2018, I brought out the stones to see what I could do, re-create.
I don't think I did as well. Maybe the lighting? Maybe the ladder?
Anyway, that was one of my August projects.
