117 Photographs in 2017

This corner of the world

May 22nd, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

May 22, 2017 - This weekend was awesome. It started Saturday with a run to the insurance agent to “finally” insure the motorcycles, and that was followed by a not-too-short and not-too-long ride to remind myself that this machine is a very, very different animal from the little scooter that runs me around town. It was nice [...]

Band-tailed Pigeon

May 21st, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

One of our new garden residents, a shy band tailed pigeon. Native to the West Coast, but shy and not frequently seen, our new bird feeder has coaxed them down from their hidden perches high in the cedar trees. A few weeks ago we looked out and could see the crappy little feeder that we [...]

Unwanted

May 15, 2016 - Riding the ferry home from the Island today I skimmed Facebook and came across a post by someone I follow. The quote in the post resonated with me given something I am struggling with currently. Books. Books are important. They transport us to other places, other times. They introduce us to [...]

Another Walk in the Woods

May 8, 2017 - Today was my 50th birthday and I can't think of a better way to have spent it, out for a walk in the quiet forest with three people who mean the world to me. It was the last day my friends were out from Ontario and although we originally intended to [...]

A day in the mountains

May 7th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

May 7, 2017 - We are lucky to live where we do, not a day goes by that I don’t recognize that fact and feel grateful for it. And living between the Pacific ocean and the coastal mountain range is something that we are always only to happy to share with others, if for no [...]

Sail Past

May 7th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

May 6, 2017 - It’s been an interesting few days. Kirk told me to take a week off of work and I’d assumed we were to be going somewhere since it’s my birthday in a couple of days, except that I didn’t want to go far from home because of Loki and what’s been going [...]

Bicycle Day

April 19th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

"Bicycle Day is April 19, commemorating April 19, 1943, when Dr. Albert Hofmann first took LSD intentionally. Three days earlier, he had absorbed a small amount of the drug either through his fingertips or by accidentally ingesting it. On Bicycle Day, he took 250 µg of LSD intentionally and, fearing he had made himself ill, [...]

A Walk in the Woods

April 16th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

April 16, 2017 - The weather has just been atrocious so far this spring. March was officially the gloomiest on record with only three days free of rain, and April hasn’t fared much better so far. Honestly, I don't mind the rain, but it's just been a bit much this year so far. It reminds [...]

Game Night

March 6th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

  March 6, 2017 - Television is an isolating time waster. We plant ourselves in a comfortable seat, all face the same direction, and watch intently. We break the spell only briefly every twenty minutes or so (less if we are streaming video or watching prerecorded shows) for a snack, a bathroom visit, or to [...]

Sleeping Beauty and The Lamp

March 1st, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

March 2, 2017 - Meet Milo and Loki, if you haven’t already. Milo usually wants to get "in" the fireplace and so whenever we light it there is a battle of wills between cat and human until the fireplace finally reaches a temperature that suits him such that he will settle down on his sheepskin [...]
