A Frog’s Perspective

September 17th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

September 17, 2017 - Yesterday was a gorgeous day. It was a bit brisk in the morning but fabulously warm by early afternoon, so we grabbed the boards, tossed them on top of the truck, and headed for Sasamat Lake, a spot that we'd never visited even though it's so close. A wrong turn landed [...]

Capilano Canyon

September 10th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

A little rain yesterday seemed to freshen the world up and bring out the colour in everything again, it’s been a long time since some water fell from the sky. I know I’ll be moaning about it in a few months when it won’t stop, but right now it's a welcome change. After a visit [...]

A little friendly competition

September 10th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

September 9, 2017 - After months of dry weather there is a bit of cool ari and some rain, not enough to do much for the forest fires raging in BC and south of the border, but enough to both make us grateful for the moisture and also drive us indoors for some weekend entertainment. [...]

This is work

September 8th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

September 8, 2017 - It's hard not to love my job. A couple of trips up to the Pitt this week for work, and a visit to an Island site to test some equipment and help out with some injections on some broodstock from a stock of concern. All that makes for another week in [...]

Trans Am Totem

September 3rd, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

Sept 3, 2017 - Personally I think it’s a bit ugly, but then again, that’s what art is all about, emotion, opinion, and conversation. I’ve been wanting to take a photo of this art installation for a couple of years, but it’s nowhere near where I live and I only occasionally get through this area [...]

Milo Bear

September 2nd, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

It’s been hot…even the cats are hot. Milo has retreated to his crinkle tube where he lolls about… and then terrorizes and kills a string that hangs on the side, before going back to sleep. SaveSave

Smoky Sunrise

August 30th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, Travel|

Yesterday I had two morning site visits to make on the Island, and an afternoon meeting at the Biological Station. Since two others were coming along and they were both from the Station, I opted out of the ferry and one of them did the driving. I love taking the float planes across the Strait, [...]

Out for a little drive

August 29th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, Travel|

August 29, 2017 - This past Sunday we decided that we’d neglected the backroads for too long. Since we got the motorcycles we've not played out on the Forest Service roads that we used to ply back when we still had the old truck. When I was up at Gates Creek a couple of weeks [...]

A Tomato Filled Weekend

August 19th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, Food Mood|

August 19, 2017 - It is a busy weekend, filled with tomatoes! I picked up 60lbs of tomatoes, a couple dozen corn on the cob, onions, 10lbs of chicken backs & necks, and a variety of carrots, celery, fennel bulbs, basil, red peppers, green peppers, jalapeño peppers, onions, and other fresh vegetables. But the tomatoes [...]
