Cityscape

June 24th, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

Summer in the city, summer in Vancouver. I get cranky about the traffic, the tourists, the never ending cruise ships that disgorge thousands of people into the downtown core, making it almost impossible to move if I want to go for a walk into Gastown at lunch. On the flip side, I am privileged to [...]

Daypass

March 31st, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

The weather has been nice the past two weekends, nice enough that patio season has officially arrived.  We'd just sat down on the patio at Hearthstone brewery - a sunny day required sitting in the sun with a beer in hand - and ordered our drinks and some (amazingly delicious) maple bourbon wings. While we [...]

Spring has arrived

March 26th, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

Just playing with the new Lensbaby Velvet 85 lens that Kirk picked up for me on a recent trip to Portland. The lenses are manufactured in Portland, there is no sales tax in Oregon, and Kirk was going to be there for a few days and could bring it back duty free. The savings added [...]

Here we go again….

January 1st, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

January 1st, 2018 - It's a bit of a ritual, a tradition, though I don't much go in for traditions as a general rule..... but I always try to find a cherry blossom on January 1st to share with my best and dearest friend, I don't think she really ever appreciates the effort though. :) So [...]

A Sunny Weekend

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 [...]

Is the Forest Dreaming?

October 8th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

When a forest goes dormant in the fall/winter...does it dream about spring? I've wondered this before, and I will presumably wonder it again in the future. Probably next fall when it begins to go dormant again. I usually head out to my outer coast hatcheries once a year, generally in the fall during broodstock season. [...]

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 Tomato Filled Weekend

August 19th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

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 [...]
