i’ve never experienced the kind of bitter cold that Canada and other similarly wintery places have to deal with, but something tells me that sitting in an ice fishing hut doesn’t appeal to me much. when i saw this series by photographer Richard Johnson however, i started imagining what my own ice hut would look like… i probably wouldn’t use it for fishing though, perhaps just as a giant freezer? i can store a year’s worth of ice-cream in there.
you know those rich people who live in one part of the world for 6 months and then scoot over to another hemisphere so they can sweat and simmer in summer all year round? yeah. i’m the opposite of those people. i would take my billions and travel to where it’s always autumny and cool – all the time.
