Sometimes my camera is like an extension of my brain. Actually, make that: most times, my camera is like an extension of my brain. So after I'd finished lunch at the High Country Inn in Whithorse, I asked if I could walk around and take some photographs and the ladies behind the bar readily gave me permission to do so.
The little details are all-important sometimes. And while there are some great Yukon souvenir signs on display here, I also had to take the shot above because my eye was drawn to the little cocktail sticks and the variety of colours in the glass. To their right were the distinctive Yukon drinks coasters, while behind them were the bar taps, one bearing the legend "Yukon Gold".
It was very tempting to turn the closer set of coasters anti-clockwise, so that the word "Yukon" was facing the camera - but as you know, I never move objects that I photograph. So I had to go with the cocktail sticks in sharp focus, in the hope that your vision would encompass the other details in the frame.
And just in case you're wondering what the symbol was above the Molson dispenser, here it is ...
Are you wondering what the bright colours are in the background of the second shot? They're the hues of a huge variety of bottles, alcohol and liqueurs alike.
And no, I don't drink anything stronger than iced water, so if you're really thirsty, go ahead and drink my share.
