I just found a pretty good article from NorthWord, a community newspaper that covers northern BC’s coast and interior. Nice quotes and insights from Rick Budwha, Farid Rahemtulla and David Archer – but what caught my eye was the surreal photo used to illustrate the piece. Is that a light dusting of snow on the clipboard? Is that wind down the plumber-butt? Is that a marginally insane unit location right in the root mat of a huge tree? Is this winter impact assessment under Oil and Gas Commission guidelines? How did they establish the glorious sidelight? Is there snow on the soles of their boots? Could this be a painting? I want to know more about this picture, dammit!
