“The guitar is an Epiphone Nighthawk. Got this one in Toronto when we were out for a soiree. We were playing at the foot of the CN Tower for two weeks and went to Steve’s Music in Toronto. Saw the guitar and had to have it. It had a curly maple top and the price was right, so it came home with me.

Every time I pick up a guitar is a proud moment for me. The guitar is a never ending friend for me, and I am never alone. It makes me relaxed. It’s good for my soul.”

The Tamarack Camera Club has partnered with the Labrador Institute on a photography project called The Humans of Labrador. Some of these photos will be published here as Portraits of Labrador.  The series was launched with this photo by John Graham.

Chanterelles

BY Heidi Wicks

“Matilda,” her father told her once, “there’s this one kind of mushroom, they look a whole lot like chanterelles, but let it be known – they’re not chanterelles. They’re called Jack-o’-Lanterns and they make a person quite sick.”

Suddenly ripples started appearing on the large screen, like you see on the surface on of a pond at the beginning of a downpour. On two of the smaller screens the tide tugged unfurled waves back out into the bay; another showed mint-coloured lichen on a grey rock; a third played water gurgling in and out of a tide pool. I could feel the bunny-rabbit thump of blood coursing through my heart and it was correlating with the steady tick in the soundscape.
