I have made it to Bayfield! The cottage is tiny, but cosy, and I have reorganized it into a working studio for myself. It is a fine cottage, and think I shall enjoy my time here immensely.
The man that I am renting the cottage from just happens to have worked as a photographer for CBC and is bringing me back some lights, on Friday when he returns. I am going to wait to see what he brings me to take pictures of the #dailysmudge postcards. I miss having my set up, and the ease with which to share them…
I have walked the Sawmill trail every morning (it’s very beautiful) and am looking forward to witnessing, and documenting, all the changes as the air cools and the colours come alive.
I went around town introducing myself and putting up posters for the workshop (which is tomorrow), and wouldn’t ya know it, I met Alice Monroe on my travels!! (She was having lunch at one of the restaurants). I invited her to the workshop, saying she would write a fine letter indeed. Ms. Monroe explained that she would not be in town on Thursday, but acknowledged my passion, and wished me the best of luck – so perfect.
I am, right now, at the gallery (barn) where my workshop will take place. I have come here to use the internet (as my cottage does not have a wi-fi connection), to drop off my mailbox, and to leave some cards. I do hope some good souls show up tomorrow!!
I will check in again on the weekend with more pictures, of the workshop and my time here.
