Lawrence Sawler named his grocery store “Glyda’s ” after his wife 28 years ago. Lawrence tells me times are hard for the grocery store business. With the sky-high expenses, Lawrence isn’t too sure how much longer he’ll be in business.

Reporting From The Canadian Landscape

I’m primarly a people photographer, and I’m new to shooting landscapes and nature. When I spotted this rotting apple half way up a tree in a bird’s nest, I considered climbing the tree, but I feared that the branches would break causing both damage to the tree and myself. Always the innovator, I rigged up a mono pole, put the camera on a self timer and stuck it up into the tree pointing it the best that I could at the bird’s nest.

Some characters just touch your heart. Lawrence is a struggling grocery store owner. His story and soft gentle way really struck a cord with me, and the staff wanted to take a photo of me with Lawrence.
