Oh my aching back!
As many of you may know, a couple times each year I head to Australia to see my two precious grandchildren (age 4 and 1 1/2).
During the weekdays when I am there I babysit while their parents are at work.
It can make for some very long individual days but in the grand scheme of things, time goes by all too quickly.
I seize every moment I can with them, whether it is chasing frantically behind their scooters as they zoom down the footpath (their word for sidewalk) or joining them for a 100th time down the playground slippery dip (their word for slide).
By the end of the each trip, and compounded by a lengthy flight home, the active days always take their toll on my not so agile body.
But it is so worth every ache and pain.
As I flew overseas, I was reminded of the last salmon fishing framing project I did for Navindra.
After each of a series of four trips, I framed his photos (mostly 8 x 10 images) and memorabilia to showcase his adventures in the remote fishing lodges of British Columbia’s Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands).
This one was framed like the others with the same rich coloured suede mat and deep sea blue outside frame edged with silver.
The layout is different from the others in order to visually highlight the uniqueness of each trip but unite them as a series.
One thing to keep in mind is that framing supply manufacturers are continuously updating their products lines.
What this means for you is that a frame or mat we use one year may be discontinued and unavailable a few years later.
To avoid possible disappointment in situations like these, it is best to have them framed within a relatively short period of time of each other.
Or in this case “Seas” the day!
