In Between

August 5, 2010

If you are wondering why it has been so long between posts on this page, it may be because this is really the “in between” part of the summer. It is between vacation and fieldwork, between starting work on new exhibits and installing them, and between the beginning and the end of so many research projects. At the museum, I have been playing catch-up in between the steaming mounds of administrative backlog, leaving very few focused grey cells in between my ears.

There will be new material to post soon: I will be in the field later next week, and there are also trip photos from the past month that I want to edit and comment upon.  In between, here are a few additional photos of last month’s Ontario fieldwork, courtesy of Dave Rudkin …

Action shots of me doing field research in south-central Ontario (or perhaps they should be termed "inaction shots"?). From left to right, assessing a fossil slab, preparing to shift another slab, and realizing I am jetlagged and need more coffee. If you want to gain an appreciation of this sort of fieldwork, imagine these images stitched together and animated in an infinite and very slow loop. (photos © David Rudkin, Royal Ontario Museum)
