Are we closer to the moon here, it looks bigger.
Clear nights for 10 days straight.
Cape Dorset is word renowned for their Inuit Arts. The print makers have a building in which they produce their works which I didn’t get into because of the hours I worked. but the local carvers do their thing at home and out side, often with lights set up and a wee cover.
It’s a dirty dusty job,chipping grinding and filling stone. This polar bear will one day find its way out of here to a gallery and home somewhere in the world.
I climbed the various hills about town to and from work and shot when I could.
My photo sensitive glasses go almost black on days like this, very little contrast in the scenes except some exposed rocks
Someone going somewhere on the other side of town shot at 200mm.
The thumb nail is so small I can’t see the glacier I am posting. I need bigger thumb nails.
I plan on walking over to the lookout today after I pack up my personal gear in preparations to fly into Iqualuit for the night. It appears in a number of shots but I must stand within it and shoot out.
This is beside the RCMP station, and I have no idea what it is representing as I didn’t get up close and personal with it.
Carting about all my gear in the big parka and pants and boots to reach some of these elevated locations is making me feeling pretty good. The first couple of mornings up the hill to work were killing me. It was -26 those mornings but I think this exercise thing is not so bad!
The roads are well maintained and pushed back all the way to the rocks, I guess in case they get a snow fall like in Clyde River , google that one.
This was out in front of Sam Pudlat school where the dental office is. The tachers and kids don’t seem to be offended by the smell of monomer. Bonus because it still affords me!
We are looking over cenral downtown and east Cape Dorset from one of the local high hills that protect the core from the westerly winds.
Heading into downtown.
A panoramic from what I call communication hill where the satellite transmissions and telephones function from.
David offered to walk with me to the edge of the island to the sea where the town park is. part way there is the fuel storage tanks and lots of containers that the ships have brought in. He found a small piece of lumber and was happy to take it home , said he would carve it.
Messing around out on the bay late one night, I think the tide was coming in a as you could hear the cracking and ice movement. I kept looking about for a polar bear but I think that I was just being a little paranoid.
These humans form at the shore during the freeze up with the tidal shifts they are present all around the shore and one needs a relatively clear path to get onto the bay.
The moon roes as the sun set, beautiful evening. I think I lost a lens cap. Poo.
