Something nostalgic about the smell of a campfire. 🌲
Refocus and remember the dream.
Built immediately after the Second World War, this school was just one in a wave of new buildings for the Edmonton Public School Board.
Constructed in 1946, Delton School is one of the few in the city to feature strong Art Deco elements. Design work was carried out by Maxwell Dewar, a significant mid-century era architect. Along with his private firm, Dewar held the posting of City Architect, a municipal government position responsible for designing all future city-owned buildings. Designing Virginia Park School, Victoria School and a underground parkade for the Hotel MacDonald, he would later go on to design City Hall in 1954 before passing the following year.
Unlike most of the EPSB's post-war schools, which put heavy emphasis on early modernist styling, Dewar used Art Deco and Moderne styled motifs. Strong horizontal elements are created with the brown brick bands separated by rows of windows and white Terrazzo spandrel. Art Deco triglyphs are visible along the parapet. Ribbed fasces are located above the two main recessed entrance ways, which separate the original centre portion of the building with it's subsequent additions. The two sympathetic wings were added in the following decade; one in 1951 and another in 1955. Most likely due to steel shortages resulting from the war, Delton is exclusively concrete construction. The interior floors are a checkerboard pattern of yellow and grey Terrazzo flooring. The building also makes use of glass brick over it's original wooden doors.
Delton continues to function as a school to this day. It is not listed on the city's Inventory of Historic Resources.
Isn’t Charleston the cutest little city? And really the people here are so nice.
was a blast and I met so many new and amazing people. Somehow I always get so wrapped up in everything that I forget to take pictures but it was awesome.
Now the hubs and I are spending a few days exploring this gorgeous city.

One of my favorite edits so far from my trip to Alaska! I learned on this trip that there is a ton of iceberg terminology. Because of it’s, size this would be classified as a bergy bit. Any smaller and it’d be classified as a growler. It’s hard to tell scale from this photo, but the little iceberg is about 5 feet long.
It’s a wrap on a 23 day shoot in the state of Wyoming. The breathtaking landscapes and graceful wildlife are forever in my heart 💙Being there felt like walking through a painting of old America and at times like acting in a Western and I loved learning more about the Native American history and culture. Grateful for such a work adventure of a lifetime and for the hardworking team I got to experience it with. Yeehaw❣️To be continued...
Moving into Death Valley National Park tomorrow! Trying to emotionally prepare for the constant heat and crappy cell service. As Bilbo said "I think I'm quite ready for another adventure!"
A blend of marble, coral-colored walls and houseplants is officially the latest add to our Monday mood-board. Which room would you utilize this combo for?
Last night I built a castle and put you in it. But you flew away and my castle crumbled. The next day you returned and sat amongst the ruins and told me a secret of why birds fly and so I built a castle in my heart.
My heart has castles I will never forget but forever live in -to my lost lovers
So happy I got the chance to show this lady around my favorite places! Such a fun weekend exploring- come back anytime @jessklamerus
Many moons ago I found myself surrounded by mushrooms, it's a funny story. These are not those mushrooms however.
Stop trying to find shortcuts. Everybody had to take the long road, there are no exceptions!
I’m sure you’ve seen people say that social media only shows everyone the highlights of your life. We don’t share our lowest moments or the struggles that we face. Today, I want to remind you that it’s okay to have the lows. Without them, the highs wouldn’t be what they are. It’s a balancing act (just as I am balancing on this paddle board). Some days I wake up and I am sad. Other days I am happy. What it comes down to is my focus. I rather fix my focus and see the good rather than the bad. •
Even in relationships, the focus needs to be on the right things. My relationships with others aren’t always perfect and I know we go through our own rough patches. I could choose to be angry and focus on the negatives or I could choose to see the positives and let it go. At the end of the day I choose forgiveness because that’s how I am able to grow and move on. Forgive yourself and those around you. Then focus on the good and what you want to find in others and more importantly yourself.
Abandoned barns and scorched earth 🌞 I love small town America, definitely felt the vibes here 🌾
