Hello! Thank you for visiting my site. My name is Paul R. Therrien. I reside in Thompson, Manitoba located north of the 55th parallel. My home page contains my blogs. Sometimes it will have pictures I took with a comment. Other times it may contain a photography tip or a reflection about life in general. Photography is a means of self expression, a way to capture a small piece of the world that I have observed and found interesting. My hope is that in sharing these fleeting seconds of time, it will give you pause to reflect about the world around YOU! Today’s moments, Tomorrow’s memories!
N.B. Clicking on an image will make it larger.
As time takes its toll we lose our stamina, our ability to stand on our own. We lose our shape, our structure, our means to see the world and serve a useful purpose. Our memory fails and our function which once gave us pride and a reason for being has been ravaged by the storms of time and nature. Some still struggle to remain erect, but eventually the burden of our existence will win out. All that remains are those precious moments in time that were better days.
– A chance encounter
As I was driving on Hwy# 6 a few weeks ago I came across this fox running on the shoulder. I slowed down and he did not run away, so I stopped, grabbed my camera and he approached the car. He did not stay more than a few seconds, but I managed to capture this image before he continued on his way. A chance encounter with one of natures wonders.
“A photograph never grows old. You and I change, people change all through the months and years but a photograph always remains the same. How nice to look at a photograph of mother or father taken many years ago. You see them as you remember them. But as people live on, they change completely. That is why I think a photograph can be kind. ” - Albert Einstein
Lost in her own world, young girl texting away. Don’t you wish sometimes that you could be a cyber fly and buzz around to discover what messages people are sending and to whom. I am sure we would see everything from the very innocent comments to the very damaging, to the very ridiculous. What we would not utter publicly, we are not so shy about sending it in writing electronically… even if the audience can end up being much larger. Have a Safe Text!

guardian of the landfill
I went to the landfill this morning to unload some trash as we declutter our house in preparation for an upcoming move. I brought my camera along to take pictures of the thousands of Ravens that spend their days rummaging through the discarded offerings. To my surprise however among this sea of black feathers were 6 Eagles in different locations. My attempts at getting good photos were for not. I had a short lens and whenever I moved in closer they would move out of range. I came back home and retrieved my longest lens, went back and managed a few good shots. The Eagles appear to be the guardians lording over the multitude of Ravens.
A change in wardrobe
What a difference Mother Nature can create in only a few weeks. A change in wardrobe changes the mood.
