Museum Entrance
Most recent comment: Sunday, February 12th, 2012 at 12:26:49

This used to be the co-op store.  Before that it was the Hudsons Bay Company.
The bottom floor now has a museum where all the valuables from the town has been placed.

Paul Gauguin Two Tahitian Women With Mango Blossoms

Paul Gauguin Two Tahitian Women With Mango Blossoms
Tags: art

Dear John, I've downloaded Paul Gauguin's Two Tahitian Women With Mango Blossoms after checking your copyright.

I have a print of this work about 10 years old and after the Tate Gallery exhibition, I've discovered the colors on my print are not correct with the woman on the right wearing a green sarong, not blue, and the sarong on the woman on the left has a brown fabric instead of dark blue. Many printers such as Allposters still manufacture prints with the wrong colors.

I found one printer Art.com that has the blue sarong but the dark blue may not be correct, I have asked them for clarification.

I understand that a camera can copy the color of oil paints but sometimes printing technology is limited and replication is difficult.

I sincerely thank you for posting this photo, it shows the real Gauguin colors that are missing in 'fakes'.

Regards,
Albert Devivo, Brisbane, Australia

Colour correctness in photography is a very complicated issue. I certainly wouldn't guarantee my rendering is "correct". I used 400 speed print film which allows quite a bit of interpretation when it comes to colour. (Slide film by comparison has a much tigher rendering of colour). Looking at the image now, I suspect my print is a little heavy on green (too little magenta).

I can image two different reasons why your print is wrong - it's possible that the original photo was sloppy (for instance the photographer used daylight balanced film and non-daylight lighting) or that the negative they printed from had aged badly. Digital workflows and digital cameras have made people much more sensitive to these issues - in the 90s these kinds of errors were common and people just didn't seem sensitive to it.

Local Train
Most recent comment: Wednesday, October 12th, 2011 at 22:51:26
We didn't actually take this train today. The doors at the front of the train open so that it can connect to another train and make a large/longer one.

Quite beautiful!

Court House at Ocean Falls

This court house actually .  Now it now houses the post office,
the public library, a clinic, and the office of the Ocean Falls Improvement District


Any idea what kind of car that is parked there or how many cars are in Ocean Falls?

When I visited there were perhaps a dozen vehicles we saw - many of the bigger SUV's with American license plates. I believe BC ferries provides car service and there are a few km of roads. No gas station of course.

Wharf in Namu
Most recent comment: Thursday, July 7th, 2011 at 20:57:53

This is current dock in Namu - large vessels can dock (on the left) and smaller boats (like the 90 foot curve of time)
can use the water level dock. In the background you can see the hotel, jail and entertainment building.


What has become of the houses on Namu? The reason I ask is I would like to be able to live in one of them. I love the area. I am on my own, and have had lots of experience living in remote areas. The Yukon for one, out in the bush.

I would like to hear from someone to find out if I could live in one of the houses. I hope to hear from someone soon. Thank you! Vanne Hanisch-Godoy

Shell bead family from Namu - when I found these three people buried together with hundreds of shell beads I fully understood the honour, respect, care, and love which the people of Namu showed to three who had so violently died. This also told me the village warriors had successfully defended themselves and the town but at a very hard price.

For the last 43 years this family has often been on my mind as I wonder about their character and quality of life. I wish that I could go back in time 7,000 years to meet, fellowship and get to know them.

Baby Elk
Most recent comment: Thursday, July 7th, 2011 at 20:55:16
We are right off the parking lot to the Cave and Basin Interpretive Center (which we didn't in the end visit).
Species: Cervus elaphus (Elk, Wapiti)

In the middle of the night we suddenly find a baby elk at our front door. we had seen it early along our driveway but left it along as the cow usually comes back for it. then our dogs bark and it is slumped at the front door. had called DOW but no response. it is very week and we are wondering what to feed it anyone.

The Wasabi seems to need this gravel/high water type arrangement to grow.

Hi John - this is common Heather, scientific name Calluna vulgaris (known in older references as Erica cinerea). Hope this helps. PS - if you visit my RedBubble site I'd greatly appreciate help with identifying a couple of wildflowers in my gallery.

Jesse on Top of World Trade Center
Most recent comment: Sunday, March 20th, 2011 at 14:51:21

It was a sunny morning in September and the roof top observation deck was open.

People: Jesse

Wow that is really bizarre. I can't believe you guys were there a year almost to the day before the plane crash. And on a day as clear as when it happened. I read an article once that said people actually were on the roof when those planes hit trying to get out of the smoke. A helicopter saw them. Can you imagine the horror when it started to collapse? I was there about 5 years before it happened and I talked to a delivery guy who said he was in the building when the first terror attack happened in 1993 with the bomb and he got out by walking down the stairs. I always wondered if he was there on 2001 as well and if he made it.
