A Visit to Lee Valley Tools

December 10th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

Lee Valley Tools is a bad store. A very, very, bad store. Because it’s hard to not spend too much money on too many things that I didn’t know I didn’t need. I rarely come out of there unscathed. Today I went to pick up a single item for a Secret Santa gift exchange later [...]

Time is Precious

November 27th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

I’m feeling the effects of time these days. Kirk joked the other day that one doesn’t need drugs to feel a buzz anymore, one just needs to stand up quickly. WHEEEEEE! Headrush. But in all seriousness, why does time seem to go so slow when we are children and so quickly as we age. I’m [...]

Through the Looking Glass

November 23rd, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

It’s a rainy day and the temperature is dipping again. It’s been unseasonably warm with the Hawaiian Pineapple Express running over us this past few days. Seems like a perfect day to pack the field gear in the truck, head for Squamish, and spend part of the day walking streams and counting fish, doesn’t it? It [...]

Playtime

November 21st, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

When I was a little girl one of my favourite things to do was sit in my Dad's workshop in the basement while he fixed...whatever. And while he worked, he would give me a hammer, a piece of wood, and a pile of nails. I would happily bang nails into that two by four with [...]

Nailed it

November 19th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

Nothing of interest, just playing with the camera a bit today and a pile of nails was one of the subjects since “Nails” was one of the topics on the few remaining photos to take in the 117 scavenger hunt. 117 Photos in 2017 - 51. Nails

What’s Cooking?

November 18th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

Gah! It’s been a crazy fall. I usually work like a lunatic October and then get sick immediately after the month is out. So this year I decided to fix that problem and front end load a lot of my travel and get some of it out of the way in August and September and [...]

A Sunny Weekend

October 28th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, The Twisty Route|

October 28, 2017 - One has to take advantage of sunny days in Vancouver at this time of year because they can be few and far between. It’s a standard joke that it rains here pretty much from October until May. Except it’s not really much of a joke. So when the sun comes out [...]

Busy few weeks

October 26th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

October 26, 2017 - Life’s been hectic the past few weeks. Oh, who am I kidding, how about for the past few months. I’ve been up to my eyeballs in brood season, but as much as it’s been busy, it’s also been very enjoyable. I really do have the best job and get to work [...]

Chocolate or Vanilla

October 20th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

I’ve been a bit depressed lately. Enough so that I feel I’ve lost my voice in a way. I usually journal extensively and my photos are generally a medium for my thoughts in some metaphorical manner. But lately I’ve been uninspired because the world has been so disheartening. It seems that the world is just [...]
