February 26th, 2007 · 1 Comment

After driving down to the cottage on Friday night just south of Orford, half way to Owl’s head and seeing the immense amount of snow all around, we decided to forego the lines and crowds at Jay peak and hike Mt Glenn (closed down ski hill north of owl’s head). We arrived Saturday morning to […]

Rosemarie Fiore has taken some beautiful time lapse shots of a couple 80’s video games. Here’s hoping she does some more. She has another series that I like a lot based on “Exploding fireworks” in a controlled way over paper. And — who could not love her giant “Spirograph” project !! “These photographs are long […]

Powder barrels and charlie horses

February 5th, 2007 · Comments Off on Powder barrels and charlie horses

Saturday morning was some of the best powder riding of the year so far. We woke up to a windy, very-blue-skied day with almost of foot of fresh snow at Jay Peak. Got to the mountain nice and early (8:15am) and was able to get on one of the first tram rides up to the […]

Public hammocks or nefarious ends?

February 2nd, 2007 · 4 Comments

I parked my car behind the BELGO this AM (just near the corner of St. Alexandre and Ste. Catherine) – remembering that it was cheaper than the other spot I usually go and much closer to work. Two things struck me as I paid my money to the PARK MONTREAL automated machine; The price of […]
