Running On Air

I have long loved Rodney Smith's photo of jumping on hay bales and vowed that if I ever found myself in the Canadian prairies with a field of hay bales, I would do my best to pay homage to his brilliant work. Well, I found my field of hay and I jumped my heart out on those things, and let me tell you it's not that easy to get up onto a 7 foot hay bale! I posted some extras below since my long legs were getting put to good use to get that air!


So I got home from our mini-trip to southern alberta to find a rather surprising and exciting email from none other than Brooke Shaden. It turns out that I was selected as the winner of her "Surrealism" contest! Holy crap! I must say it's an incredible honor to have been chosen by one of my favourite photographers and inspirations. You can check out her blog post here.


This photo was taken yesterday so I might just post today's photo tomorrow morning since I'm pretty tuckered out.


Happy Monday!
