A few sneak peeks from my recent trip up to Brisbane. I just love road trips and the things you come across on the way! Those Rams 😍😍😍 All will be available as prints on my website soon!!
Petrichor- If you’re anything like me, the smell of rain was something you’ve experienced before, but you likely had no idea that it came with such a fancy name to describe it. Beyond being an exceedingly pleasant scent, petrichor can be broken down to its Greek roots in the words petra (stone) and ichor (blood of the gods). This might seem awfully fancy for a smell that floats in on a breeze as a storm approaches, but the science of this scent is both fascinating and complex.
With the increased humidity that comes with a storm, the pores of rocks, dirt, and soil fill with water which displaces a yellowish oil to the air. This is responsible for the distinct scent carried to our nostrils. From its origin in rocks to its once mysterious airborne nature, the Greek words that compose petrichor fit together like a beautiful puzzle. Hopefully these photos of a Death Valley storm are enough to inspire a deeply buried memory of the last time you caught a whiff of petrichor on the air.
The old Ritchie School is nearing the end of its existence, as it is set to be demolished by the end of the year. To celebrate its life, the Ritchie Community League graciously put on a barbeque event which invited former students and the public at large to come back and explore the building one last time. We were unfortunately not allowed in the original wing of the school, as it is in such a state of disrepair as to be unsafe to those without proper safety equipment; a result of having been boarded up since 1974. Nevertheless, what we were able to explore was amazing.
The school’s 1950’s annexes proved to be a veritable time capsule. Many walls are clad in bright yellow tile, or massive teal colloured blocks. Others, typically sporting inset lockers, feature plaster. The floors are a mix of Terrazzo and linoleum, with the latter making use of a neat banding pattern. The washrooms are so stereotypically 1950’s, as to be laughable. They feature seafoam coloured tiling, interspersed with strips of a vibrant pink. Many still sport their original moulded porcelain sinks. Several of the classrooms and specialty areas, like the small gymnasium and woodworking shop, feature well worn, but immaculately polished, thin slatted hardwood. The woodworking shop itself is still fitted up with equipment that - while possibly not as old as the building itself - are antique. A classroom space created from part of the library proudly displays an amazingly sized three dimensional, topographical map of Alberta. So many of the fixtures appear to date to the annex’s opening, or are at least from the era. Carved wooden pamphlet holders reside near each outdoor entranceway. The ever ubiquitous hallway clocks that hang from the center of the ceiling are encased in rounded, Moderne-esque rigs. Fire extinguisher signs are of cast metal, and many of the entrances still feature their original doors and hardware. It is truly hard to put into words just how much of a period piece the place is. Walking through the doors is so like stepping back into 1960 that the few pieces of modern equipment like a vending machine, or new stoves in the Home Economics room, feel out of place

Winter night. We fall. asleep. Fitted sheet two blankets. Real warm. Blankets do the trick or his body heat. I lie to the left. Inhale his scent. I can hear his heart. beating. gently. warmth. lava spilling out across my skin. he always. falls asleep before me. Constantine on the screen. but my mind, a wildebeest migration. his hand on my hips. does heaven feel this good. Insomniac. When we sleep like this.
