Day 109 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: Tim and Heide, Embedded in the Field

Living on the road is an amazing adventure. It is hard to believe that we are at day 109 already! We have been shooting in so many places that October feels like more than a year ago. We thought that we would give you a break from the winter, and give you a look at some of the places that we’ve been so far.

This trip is one of those things that we will look back on with fondness and romantic remembrances for years to come. We meet new people everyday, and we come to understand what it means to be Canadian a little bit more with each new place that we visit. It isn’t always easy, but then there are challenges in anything worthwhile that we do.

Some days it really hits me…wow, we are in Ottawa! We are in Montreal! Wow, we are living in a van down by the river! Not only does this excursion enable us to get to know our country better, it allows us to record history, and to showcase everyday Canadian moments so that we can share them with you. Interesting things are happening all around us, and what we experience in each moment will never be repeated. Let’s enjoy life for  the little, precious moments, for they are there for a nanosecond, and then they are gone.

That is the beauty of photography – we get to capture that fleeting moment and make it last. Thank you so much to all of you who are reading our blog and sharing it with others. We appreciate all the comments and the tips that we have received so far! This project is nothing without viewership and your participation.
