The US land lost in Canada

It all started when my father mentioned the Walleye War. Despite growing up in the Twin Cities, I’d never heard of Minnesota’s Northwest Angle, or its fishing disputes with Canada that caused some Angleites (as the locals there are known) to take action to secede from the United States. I was curious about these northerners and this isolated area of my home state. I was hooked. The Angle became part of the US due to an oversight In early July, my retired parents and I embarked on our upstate adventure. To drive to the Northwest Angle, a bulge of land at the top of the state...

The true story behind England’s tea obsession

Imagine the most English-English person you can think of. Now I’m fairly certain that no matter what picture you just conjured up, that person comes complete with a stiff upper lip and a cup of tea in their hand. Because that’s what the English do. They carry on and they drink tea. Tea is so utterly English, such an ingrained part of the culture, that it’s also ingrained in how everyone else around the world perceives that culture.

Belgrade’s floating river clubs

On a Friday night in late June, the air along the Sava River pulsed with a panoply of music and competing bass beats. Belgrade’s city lights danced on the water like molten gold, with ripples from passing boats creating a trance-like effect. Across the way, the centuries-old Belgrade Fortress snaked along a hill, marking the Sava and Danube confluence. Anchored on the banks of Belgrade’s rivers, around 300 rafts (called splavs or splavovi) lined the waterways – a mix of restaurants, bars and clubs. The river is our seaside On the other side of the river...

Five Tips for Special Event Photography

Event photography is something that may not always make the photographers leap with joy. Special galas, company parties and non-profit fundraisers all fall under this category. Creatives have a bad reputation about corporate event photography. This is mostly because it is an unglamorous type of photography. Though it is true that many aspects of corporate photography can be repetitive, but keep it in mind that these events also offer the advantage of more creative expression. The reasons for this can be many. There is always an almost undeviating set schedule and structure to corporate...

Why people are obsessed with Fair Isle

When David Brackenbury was six years old, he was given a Fair Isle jumper as a gift. Curious, he looked up Fair Isle on the map. Hailing from the industrial English town of Derby, “the furthest you can possibly get from the sea,” he found himself seduced by the idea of living there. About 10 years ago, he made it happen. And while the detail that drew Brackenbury to this 3-sq-mile island may seem particularly idiosyncratic, he is far from the only person to have chased a dream here. Marooned halfway between the Shetland and Orkney archipelagos, Fair Isle is one of Britain’s...
