Quote of the Day

Photography offered all things

a young person desires –

a sense of purpose, a real sense

of adventure and something 

at the end of it to reward you.

Quote of the Day

April 15, 2009







The true meaning of life 

is to plant trees under 

whose shade you do not

expect to sit.





The above words passed from Nelson Henderson 

to his son Wesley on graduation day. 


Nelson was an immigrant farmer whose family left Ireland 

during the Great Hunger to finally settle as pioneers 

in the Swan River Valley of Manitoba.
