arva flour mill August 1, 2010

Welcome back to Arva. I know it’s technically double-dipping, but there was just so much at the Mill, I had to split it into two posts.

While I’ve shopped at the Arva Flour Mill before, I’d never taken the time to wander about the property and it’s such an interesting blend of the industrial and the pastoral. And not only is it a destination for local shoppers, fishermen, and wildlife; the White Stripes performed there in 2007!

shop launched! July 26, 2010

If you’ve been over to the shop before, you may have noticed that 1) it opened in January and 2) it’s sat empty since then.

Is it telling, interesting or merely coincidence that most of the photographers whose long exposure work I admire are male? The same could be said for nature photographers in general, when I pause to think about it. Why is it, ladies, that there are so few of us out in the middle of nowhere?

Here are a few more from Erieau last week, and below, a list of my favourite photographers with great long exposure work.

Favourites – a long list but I really couldn’t boil it down any further!
