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.

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 […]
His buddy the oyster was like, “I got an ocean pearl”. And clam said, “oh yeah, well I got a diamond”.
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 […]
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 […]
I looked down at this sea-foam and there were a hundred photographers looking back at me. Weird.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
This is just some grass up close. What more can I say?
I like taking pictures of windows. I also like complementary colours. That’s because of science. Art and science work together. Isn’t that neat?
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 […]
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.
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 […]
It’s a darn good thing that residents of Barkerville didn’t have to deal with today’s politics. Imagine the carbon tax they’d have to pay with all these dirty oil lanterns hanging about.
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 […]
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 […]
Our first day in Barkerville was perfect. Nice warm, but not hot, weather and sunny skies. But by that evening we were huddled under a tarp that we literally threw over ourselves and the picnic table at our campsite. We […]
This is just a window in Barkerville. A very old window. I though it looked cool. I’ve taken a few other pictures of windows too.
