Merry Christmas

December 24th, 2017|Just Thinking|

Our neighbourhood becomes parking chaos at this time of year; we live two blocks away from the Capilano Suspension Bridge and they put on one heck of an amazing light display in the forest and on the bridge across the river. People come from all across the Lower Mainland to see it. And even though [...]

A Walk on LoLo

October 1st, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

October 1, 2017 - October? Already? How’d that happen so fast! The rain over the past two days disappeared and the sun made a brilliant appearance, and that made it a perfect day to wander Lower Lonsdale, or “LoLo” as it’s been dubbed relatively recently. Along both sides of the street, for a couple of [...]

Capilano Canyon

January 31, 2016 - There is the home you came from, and the home you created. The home I came from isn't home anymore. Neither the city, nor the houses that were called home. (It's rather neat that my childhood best friend now lives in the original home though) It's different, I'm different. And the differences [...]

December 16th, 2015|Photo a Day - 2015|

December 16, 2015 - Kirk sent me a text from his work out in Richmond part way through the day. He said "...if you can you should try to get outside and take a picture of the North Shore Mountains they look fantastic..." Today was a particularly spectacular day, and so, on his urging, I [...]
