Dérangement

I haven’t been out shooting new images much lately. Good thing I have a practically endless backlog of stuff* I never posted.

This is a pano, stitched together from four images, of an important historical location in Nova Scotia: it’s the place where first group of Acadians were deported by the British. That deportation, or le grand dérangement, lasted from 1755–1764. You may be familiar with the story from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem “Evangeline”, (and this is way less likely) from the 1929 silent film of the same name.

But anyway, we went to the place and wandered among the ghosts of families that were torn apart.

*Calling it an archive seems way, way too pretentious.
