3a. Aldina Pictographs – Carol Lafond
I was given a camera on two occasions; one for Christmas when I was fourteen and the other when I turned 49! Using these gifts, I have been taking pictures, whether it is for family, friends or landscape for a great many years! My favourite subject is capturing the beauty in nature; it is often inspirational and spiritual for me. Raised with the nehiyaw language but not speaking it, I can recall the words or phrases my community would use. I see these words, on occasion, in the sunrise, the land, the sky. I am all the richer by sharing these scenes.
