Signs of Changin’ Times?

Friends Alyssa & Sydney concentrate on their social media apps while the fire roars. Photographer Bernard Weil’s flashlight made the white streak during the 15 second camera exposure as he walked down to the lake to admire the Big Dipper in the night sky above. thestar.com

Now this is “multi-tasking”! The fire, the lake, the stars, the mysterious night, setting up the camera shot… don’t think for a minute that the two girls aren’t taking it all in, along with the content of their mobile devices.

And then this one, I took of a store window in Ottawa, July 8th, 2011

About Esmé Comfort

My husband Jim and I moved to the Bow Valley in 1980, settling in Canmore in 1983. Both my children were born in Canmore and attended K -12 in Canadian Rockies Public Schools District (CRPS), French Immersion. For the past six years I served as vice-chair of the board. Alberta Government support to the CRPS Inspiring Hearts & Minds initiative created opportunities for provincial, national and international outreach. In the past I held positions on the Canmore Daycare Board, the preschool board, and various school councils/PACs; I served as president of the local chapter of Canadian Parents for French for five years and sat on the provincial board for two. I currently sit on the board of the Canmore Folk Music Festival, work full time at an events management firm and edit, copy-edit and proofread on contract. My husband and I ran a small main street business for 18 years: supply and install floor wall and window coverings.
