October 2nd, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, Monochromatic|

October 2, 2017 - We use words every day and too frequently we spend very little time thinking about what those words are, what they mean, and what impact they may have once we release them. But this isn't a heavy discussion about language, it's just a short little thought about one word. "The" I [...]

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 [...]

Water Baby

September 29th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

September 29, 2017 - When I was younger it was hard to keep me out of the water. One of our cabin neighbours out at the lake used to call me “Frog” because I was pretty much always in the lake. I loved swimming and made my way up through the various swimming badges until [...]

A Day on the Burman

September 21st, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, Travel|

September 21, 2017 - I usually travel to the Conuma River Hatchery in October for the chum run. I usually do a lot of travel in October, so much so that I usually see little of my own bed and much of the inside of hotels or the rooms of residence buildings at sites far [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]
