  Dan Earle has been shooting for almost three years. The St. John’s photographer came upon the art almost by accident.   “It started off as a whim and quickly became a hobby and then into a source of income but I shoot almost exclusively for pleasure,” said Earle. “I find it gives me something to focus on and helps blow off steam or just relax in general.”   There is a lot of technique, education and practice behind photography, just because a person has a big camera does not necessarily mean they are suddenly an artist. “I originally didn’t have any technique at all.

Well Kevin Phillips has taken this traditional Newfoundland breakfast and turned it into a variety of meals.

Thinking outside the box

in Arts & Culture by

Even though waiting at the stoplight can take only two minutes, it sometimes feels like a lifetime. Eyes fixated on that blank black circle, like staring into an abyss and waiting for the flicking green arrow guiding you left. It feels like an eternity. When your eyes begin to wander, you may have noticed some paintings plastered on traffic boxes. Solidified sceneries captured in time. Christina Hamlyn is one of the artists behind the traffic box project. If you venture across town, you will notice the extent of her talent. From a Newfoundland version of Van Gogh’s Starry Night to a caribou – her own work and other paintings vary throughout the city. Hamlyn has been working in effort with…
