“I don’t feel that you can say that objectifying a woman is always a negative thing. The act of claiming back the lens and redefining a female gaze toward another woman, it becomes a subversive act. And it’s like a revolution.” - Alessia Glaviano @alessiaglaviano@kimbotlay@keymodels
The Lost iPhone Saga • Part 2 - The phone pretty much had zero chance of being alive after Saturday, so I went and bought a new one on Sunday. As it was restoring from the iCloud backup, my emails starting coming in. I read my emails on my new phone at 4:00 PM. At 2:00 PM, Castle Mountain had emailed me. They found my phone. To be continued...
As we’re gathering the next round of fashionable people for our “Notes From Those Who Are Invited” project, we can’t help but get a little nostalgic about interviews gone by😍✨ Check out the Notes by @desnjen at blairandlynae.com/portfolio/des-jen/ !! #youXus
Lots of talk about the Grimpe En Ville ice climbing festival this weekend in Rivière de Loup, Quebec. We stopped there on Thursday to break up the drive from Mont St Pierre to Quebec City. It’s likely some of the most accessible ice in North America. Sure Ouray is accessible but the town population is 800 too, Rivière de Loup is around 20,000; it’s an actual town. The climbing is in a park that is right in town and is one of the rare locations that you have a downhill approach and a downhill walk back to the car, both around two minutes. I was told the town put $15,000 into equipment to spray water at the top and form the routes too. It really is a unique location next to the river and the dam, the ice is cool colours and it has routes for everyone, WI3 to mixed. Here @nathmontagne takes a steeper line, Rio del Lobo which has a mixed start at times too.
Bear cub 1 salmon 0 .... It's amazing to watch a mother bear teach her cubs how to fish. The first time we saw her bring the cubs to the river they didn't quite know what they were supposed to be doing. Then they got a taste for salmon.
We watched the cubs many times paw at the water or jump at the salmon trying to be like mama. However at this age they were too young to catch such a heavy fish.
Time for their next lesson... on this particular day mama brought the twins a salmon except this time the fish was still alive. She promptly dropped it off then walked away to catch another. The salmon was flailing back and forth in the pile of leaves, both cubs seemed spooked by the quick movement of the fish, Spirit ran to mama unsure what to do next.
But Sawyer was much better at passing mama's lessons than his sister. He put his paws on the fish trying to keep it from moving which must have been tough for a young cub.
He finally got one of the fins in his teeth and held on for dear life while the salmon continued to struggle. In the end the salmon met it's demise and the cubs learned another valuable lesson about fishing.
Unfortunately after passing part 1 of the lesson he failed the next test as he couldn't figure out how to tear the fish open and eat it without mama's help...
