Last month, I finally made the trip out to Tillicum Village, Seattle's premier Native American cultural experience center. Just a short ferry ride away from downtown Seattle, Tillicum Village is located on Blake Island and is only accessible via charter boat or cruise. This popular tourist destination has grown quite famous for it's salmon bake and entertaining Native American cultural performances. There are several large hand-carved Totem poles scattered throughout the campus, each one different than the next. Totem poles are simply fascinating and I've been mesmerized by them ever since I was a child. It was great to see a few of them in the "wild", and I really liked how this one turned out. About the shot... As I was with a group of people, I didn't want to keep holding everyone up (as I so often do) so I only took a few shots and did not bring a tripod (yikes!). As the sun went down, I was forced to put to raise up the ISO on my camera in order to be able to hand hold in the low light. I also shot wide open, in this case the Nikon 24mm @ f2.8 in order to allow the most light in and gave me the fun depth of field with focus on the big mouth. I was actually able to fire off a 9 shot bracketed set and then aligned the shots in Photoshop, did some standard levels/curves/contrast adjustments, a bit of noise correction, and here we are! Weather is starting to turn so I'm hoping to have a lot more time to catch up on everyone's streams. Hope you all have a great week!

We were driving through the Kanab Canyon in southern Utah and saw this small totem pole on the side of the road, and decided to stop. This was actualy located on some picnic area, so I don't know if it's an authentic Native American totem pole or not, but it was pretty cool.

August 22nd. Wandering around photographing some of the landmarks of Berkhamsted. This is the much photographed Berkhamsted totem pole. This was originally sited at the Alsford timber yard on Castle Street. In the early 1960s, Roger Alsford, a great-grandson of the founder of the timber company , went to work at the Tahsis lumber mill on Vancouver Island. During a strike he was rescued from starvation by a local Kwakiutl community. Alsford's brother, William John Alsford, visited the island, and in gratitude for their hospitality, commissioned a totem pole from the Canadian First Nations artist Henry Hunt. The western red cedar pole, 30 feet (9.1 m) long and 3 feet (0.91 m) in diameter, was carved by Hunt at Thunderbird Park, a centre for First Nation monuments. The completed pole was shipped to Britain and erected at Alsford's Wharf in 1968. Alsford's warehouses were demolished and replaced in 1994 with a housing development, but the totem pole remains in place today as an unusual local landmark. It is one of only a handful of authentic totem poles in the United Kingdom.
Durkheim describes totemism as the most basic form of religion. A totem is a sacred plant, animal or object. From his study of secondary data of Australian aboriginies Durkheim claims that when the group are worshipping the totem, they are actually worshipping themselves. As such religion maintains social integration.
