I have small balcony pond (actually it’s a patio pond now as we no longer live at a place with a balcony). The pond is home to at least four goldfish. I say ‘at least’ […]

A cool summer day on the beautiful Oregon Coast. And that’s all I have to say about that.
I captured this guy as he was reviewing the photos he had just taken on his iPhone of the fog that was blanketing English Bay in Vancouver. It’s a bit of a shame, in my […]
Sometimes it’s fun to take an everyday object and try to make it interesting. And if you can come up with a painfully clever title for it, so much the better.
I call it the Moon Base, because that’s what I felt like I was looking at while standing at the peak of Mt. Haleakala on Maui, Hawaii. Of course it really isn’t, it’s the Haleakala […]
Here is a view of an officer’s quarters at Fort Point in San Francisco, which sits right under the Golden Gate Bridge. Many of the rooms at Fort Point have been ‘restored’ to resemble what […]
Kentucky Lake is certainly a photogenic place, whether it’s just after a storm, or in the peaceful twilight as seen here. This is the kind of place that makes you really appreciate the present, and […]
When I visited the BC Cancer Agency last week for my “chemo teach” session, I was given a very nice paper journal which I took as an indication that journaling was a popular and encouraged […]
While taking photos at Kentucky Lake these two kids kept getting in the way of my shots, how rude! I don’t like it when other people’s kids get in the way of my camera lens […]
Sometimes it’s fun to see an alternate take on the same subject. For instance this photo of a Hawaiian sunset and an alternate taken just moments later. I took a few photos of the Sylvia […]
“We’re in San Francisco, we have to see Lombard Street.” Or so I was told. Unfortunately it was too late in the day, we were in a rush and so was everyone else. There was […]
It’s a window. It has many panes. One is missing. It is on the San Francisco Pier (one of them).
A seagull was kind enough to fly between the peeks just in time for me to snap this shot from a beach along the Oregon coast. This was truly one of the most beautiful places […]
What is even more horrifying than this little scene from Alcatraz is that the toilet is located directly across from the cell on the other side. If I recall correctly they aren’t even offset, so […]
If you were unlucky (or lucky?) enough to die at Alcatraz, this is where you would have ended up; the end of an old re-purposed tunnel. No refrigeration here, but apparently it stayed nice and […]
After two months of uncertainty, three ultrasounds, multiple blood tests, a CT scan and a traumatic surgery, it has finally been confirmed. I have testicular cancer. Obviously this diagnosis triggers a sea of conflicting emotions […]
If only the weather had been better in San Francisco, we wouldn’t have been so cold all the time. One the other hand, I wouldn’t have been able to capture this photo of the magnificent […]
I didn’t expect that I’d be travelling down to the Oregon coast twice in one year, but that’s exactly what I’ll be doing. In August Rachelle and I will be enjoying this beautiful drive for […]
Warning: This review spoils the story but you should read it anyway because I’m certain it’s more interesting than the actual movie. So there. “Will you ever be able to enjoy anything again,” asked Rachelle, […]
Okay, so here’s something a little different from the type of photos I normally post. Rather than being “art” this is just a snapshot of the balcony pond and urban garden that we recently put […]
