This is work

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

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.

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 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 [...]

A sight for sore eyes

August 13th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

August 13th, 2017 - Rain….it is literally a sight for sore eyes, and sore throats, and sore lungs. The smoke from the forest fires burning inland has made the air quality in the Lower Mainland the worst it's been for a very long time. Its been compared to Beijing recently. But as bad as it [...]
