Making Babies

December 6th, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

I helped a fabulous group of people make many babies this week, baby salmon that is. The eggs in the cups in the photo are future Cultus sockeye salmon that will hopefully come back to Cultus Lake in four years to help rebuild this population and add their genes back into the proverbial pool. Every [...]

What’s on your bookshelf at work?

October 31st, 2018|118 Photos in 2018|

I freely admit that I love books. All books. I love novels, non-fiction, technical books, atlases, …… I just love books. Books are tactile, they have heft. They have presence. And I tend to keep technical books…so they have history. A few years ago the federal government, under the previous government, made a terrible decision [...]

Goodbye Terrace

February 2nd, 2018|Amsterdam 2018, Travel|

February 2nd, 2018 - A few months ago Kirk said he was going to a massive trade show in Amsterdam, Integrated Systems Europe, the largest AV and systems integration show in the world. I love Europe and if it was a chance to go and save some costs, then I was clearly going along too. [...]

Burning the Midnight Oil

December 17th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

This entire weekend was spent on a marathon of marking, I barely got off the computer or off the couch. Thirty two term papers to get through, and thirty two final exams. I got through the term papers at last, and thought I had another full day to work on the exams, until I realized [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

End of a long day

October 10th, 2017|Monochromatic|

It’s been one of those days where pretty much nothing went as planned. Up terribly early, more fish than expected, took longer than planned, got away later, didn’t catch the right ferry home, missed the opportunity to spend some time with my brother, got home later than planned. So this seems like a little bit [...]

World Animal Day

October 3rd, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

October 3rd, 2017 - Tomorrow is World Animal Day. This is not a day I’ve officially recognized, but it’s the theme for a challenge in the FLickr group I’m in at the moment, so here you go. According to Wikipedia, World Animal Day is an international day of action for animal rights and welfare celebrated [...]

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 [...]

This is work

September 8th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

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 [...]
