“Happy Canada 150”

This image is a bit of an oddity for me. I’m usually sharing images of plants, wildlife, landscapes or some of my abstract impressions. Today, I’m sharing a snapshot of a moment in my life. You see, today Canada celebrates 150 years as a nation. A nation I am so proud to call home. A nation where I can travel freely, enjoy incredibly diverse environments. A nation where, quite frankly, I can simply enjoy life, with friends and family. Times where we share our days, our experiences, often over a cool beverage at the end of the day.

This image was an impromptu iPhone composition, made while sharing a beer with my neighbours. The ‘stubby’ beer bottle disappeared from Canadian breweries in the early eighties, in favour of a ‘better’ design. The long necked bottle, yet there is a nostalgia, Canadiana to the stubby.

In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, one of the breweries, Molsons, which makes Canadian Lager, brought the stubby back for a brief time. So, it was a great opportunity to capture this memory. The stubby bottle of Canadian, with a muskoka chair and my neighbourhood in the background as an appropriate starting point to the upcoming celebrations. Happy 150 Canada.

  1. Happy Birthday to our younger sister to the north.
    I love Canada, what I’ve seen and know of it. As you may recall, I live less than 200 miles from the border.
    I hope my Canadian neighbors feel the same about my own country.
    We are SOO lucky to have good neighbors.
    Happy Canada Day.

    Seek peace,
