Alistair MacLeod, O.C.

Alistair MacLeod, O.C., originally uploaded by johnwmacdonald.

Earlier in the morning before the investiture ceremony started I had asked permission to photograph Alistair MacLeod outside in the natural daylight instead of inside Rideau, Hall which is entirely lit with incandescent bulbs all around.

However, when we got outside of the front door we were met with freezing rain and ice pellets! Not to be deterred by our great northern climate, I had him to pose just under the roof shelter of the front door for a few shots. He was game for it, thankfully, and it gave us a chance to cool off a bit before he went inside to celebrate with his family and peers.

Had just finished reading No Great Mischief and thought to find out more about this wonderful author. I was deeply saddened to find he had passed away. He wrote without embellishment but with great sensitivity. Jocelyn Gordon. Perth Western Australia.
