I love to take photos, and learn about flora and fauna. It helps me to keep my eyes open....

“I could give you a giant bio and artist statement but who really cares? The short version is this : I love to take photos and have been doing so for nearly 25 years – it is a great job and a wonderful lifestyle. So far it is the best work I have come across for my personality (unless I figure out how to get paid to eat pizza and drink beer). Cheers, Darwin.”-Darwin Wiggett

The Aged Pilot Man →

   On the river channel, it was,
    All on a summer’s afternoon,
    I sailed forth with my parents
    Far away to Saskatoon.

    From out the clouds at noon that day
    There came a dreadful storm,
    That piled the billows high about,
    And filled us with alarm.

A Ballad of the Saskatchewan →

Now again ‘tis lovely May, by the riverside I stray,
And the song birds sing around and overhead,
And I watch the river flow as I did long years ago
When the North West in her glory sailed ahead.

As I watch the river flow, I think on the long ago
When each pioneer granted a homestead begun
In the land so bright and new, in the land so fair to view
In the valley of the famous River Saskatchewan.

Steamships "All aboard!" on the Saskatchewan →

[Aboard ships]:…the world is far, far away; it has ceased to exist for you—seemed a fading dream, along in the first days; has dissolved to an unreality now; it is gone from your mind with all its businesses and ambitions, its prosperities and disasters, its exultations and despairs, its joys and griefs and cares and worries. They are no concern of yours any more; they have gone out of your life; they are a storm which has passed and left a deep calm behind
