Teaman In Ottawa

I recently had the pleasure to spend the day in Ottawa. Of course my first stop was to find the famous 5 and to share a good cup of tea. When I got to the Hill were I used to perform my duties as a Grenadier Guard all was quiet. Seems my girls were moved down the road. And so with my favorite tea pot I quickly dashed off. It was a short steep over and we of course enjoyed a good cup of tea … what can I say this years spring harvest was delightful!

After a spot of tea I was off toward the National Gallery of Canada. A first for me. And what a pleasure it was. Such an inspiring space to enjoy art. So if ever you are in the neighborhood do spend some time at the Gallery. The permanent collection is wonderful and don’t forget the Canadian Photography Institute. Here are a few images from my day in Ottawa.

Enjoy Michael

Live Like Water Retreat:Winter

These photos are from an on going project to photograph the Live Like Water Retreat throughout the seasons. Here are some early winter shots of 2012.

China’s Markets

I have always been attracted to photographing Asian public markets. When we walk through we witness how people interact with the producers of their foods, a relationship we’ve lost on a mass scale in North America.There is something very humanistic, and fresh, about shopping and buying from those who are directly associated with your food and community. Such a sharp contrast to the Styrofoam, pre-packed, labeled and marketed products that are distributed here by companies. I traveled to China to buy tea and research the Tea Farms. Thanks to my friends I had the perfect opportunity to travel and photograph both urban and rural outdoor public markets. Here are a few pictures from the trip, including a modern supermarket for contrast. Now if you’re actually shopping in a Chinese Market, and you’re a foreigner, have your Chinese friend do the buying if you want to pay the actual cost. The closer you stand to your Chinese friend the more you pay.
