Heritage Park, Calgary Alberta, Canada’s Largest Living History Museum. We try to visit once a year, check out the new exhibits, wander the streets of the town, and maybe have lunch at the Wainwright Hotel or the Dairy Barn. Each year I talk about packing a picnic and sitting on the lawn near the Glenmore Reservoir but that hasn’t happened yet! One of the great places to visit is the bakery for a cookie or better yet a butter tart!

This year we wandered around and I spent time talking to the many people who were working at the exhibits, learning a little about their “role” in history.  This gentleman was at the Lady of Peace Mission close to the Hudson’s Bay Fur Trading Fort. He was busy making Metis Sashes to be sold I.G. Baker & Co. Store.  He was sitting it the little mission, just inside the door.  The light was perfect for a portrait of him at work.

  1. I like this kind of “at work” portrait. It’s fun to make or see moments in time of people who are practising their own craft. Heritage Park is great, we should all go there more often… including myself! 🙂
