Santa Monica Pier

This photo was taken on my second of two trips to California where it was cold and gloomy. Okay, that was expected in San Francisco, but it was more of a surprise in Santa Monica.

Incinerator Rock

This is Incinerator Rock in Tofino, BC and it’s a lot bigger than it looks. Determined to place the island dead centre in my frame, I walked down the beach. And I walked… and I walked… and I walked… Every […]

Clam Ring

His buddy the oyster was like, “I got an ocean pearl”. And clam said, “oh yeah, well I got a diamond”.

Tofino Afternoon

Tofino is most definitely one of the most beautiful places in Canada. I wouldn’t say the sun shines most of the time, but the feeling is laid back. The beaches are beautiful, and even though palm trees don’t grow, I […]

Tofino Beach Fort

These “log forts” can be found all along the beaches of Tofino and Ucluelet. I’m not sure what their purpose is, but my guess is that they were constructed by surfers to provide a quick escape from the storms that […]

African Grey Parrot

This guy (or girl, I can’t remember) is one of the resident’s at the Bloedel Floral Conservatory in Vancouver. He’s not as colourful as this yellow bird, but he’s every bit as beautiful. The most annoying thing about birds is […]

A Yellow Bird

Permalink to A Yellow Bird By Jonathan | Published November 11, 2016

This is a yellow bird. I am not really sure what kind of yellow bird it is. It looks kind of like a canary, and it was about the size of a canary, but I don’t think it is a […]

Yellowstone River

I was so sure I had already posted this one. But today I was searching through my gallery to find some photos for a project I’m working on, and it was nowhere to be found. Overall my photos in Yellowstone […]

Heading Home

Granville Island is a great place to spend an afternoon, but eventually we all have to head home. I think that’s what this guy is doing.

Paralysis

I am paralyzed. No, I’m not in a wheel chair. Yes, I still have two legs, and they work. Arms work too. Oh sure, chemotherapy took its toll. I don’t quite have the stamina I used too. And I am […]

View from the Peak of Mount Cheam

This is the view when you get to the top of Mount Cheam. They put it there to remind you how far you have to walk to get down to the bottom. Kind of mean, if you ask me.

Slopes of Mount Cheam

Our friends invited us to climb a mountain last night. I said yes because I thought it seemed like to good day to die of exhaustion. I got a couple of pretty photos though, when I worked up the strength […]

No Fat People Allowed

I’m not exactly sure when building codes were introduced in British Columbia, but I am reasonably confident Barkerville predates them by several decades at least. And what is the result of a town built relatively free of regulation? Diversity of […]

Just the Top Floor

Permalink to Just the Top Floor By Jonathan | Published August 25, 2016

As a photographer, how do you deal with a crowded place like Barkerville? Tourists have a bad habit of ruining the mood when you’re trying to capture images of a 19th century gold rush town. You just have to get […]
