Stan’s Captured Sunlight

Boat K70_5985IN

Thanks so much to my friend and fellow “Dormite” Stan Chmelyk for inspiring me today, and in days past, to keep shooting, to keep sharing my photo’s.  Sometimes I think that my friends and family must surely be getting tired of me posting my latest photo from my latest foray outside.  So I love it when I find out that they aren’t.  Thanks Stan, you made my day!  This one’s named for you!

PS.. thanks to all my friends and family for your support, I sure do appreciate it!



North Island Cruisers Classic Car Show – Sep 4-2016 Campbell River, BC

1955 Chevrolet  4394


Every year on Labour Day Sunday the North Island Cruisers hold their annual classic car show in the streets of downtown Campbell River.  It is a fabulous way to see all these great cars all in one place.  Here are my some of the photo’s I took.  I would post all the pictures I took, but that would be kind of crazy.. haha.

To see the whole album on Flickr just click on the picture of the car and it will take you there!

Wings & Wheels – Campbell River July 2016

I got a chance to go up to see the Wings & Wheels show at the Campbell River Airport on Saturday July 16th.  It’s a great time to see old classic airplanes and old classic cars.  The weather was great and it was fun to see everything.  Here’s a few photo’s I took while up there.

Shane’s 1974 Dodge Dart

Shane Schumacher’s 1974 Dodge Dart

I found this cool old car parked at Canadian Tire on Friday, May 13-2016.  It’s a 1974 Dodge Dart owned by Shane Schumacher who works at Canadian Tire in Campbell River.  I want to thank Shane for making my day and allowing me to crawl around his car and try out my new wide angle lens.  You made my day!

Flickr and the Pussy Willow

Pussy Willow 1266

My most viewed photo this week.  I like how it looks like it’s poked up thru the cloud and is reaching in to the sky.  I’m hoping the reason that it’s getting so many views is that everyone thinks it’s a cool photo, not because it starts with a “P” if you know what I mean. 🙂

Warwick Dahlias!

A short drive between Campbell River and Courtenay on Vancouver Island is Warwick Dahlia’s.  This place is Macro Heaven for a photographer and a gardeners paradise for anyone who has a green thumb and a love of Dahlia’s.  You visit the farm, pick out your Dahlia bulbs, place your order, wait for spring and if you are lucky, PRESTO, you purchase the bulbs, plant them, and watch them grow.

Here’s a link to my set of pictures from my visit to Warwick Dahlia’s! White A Dahlia D7K_0040FBRS A Dahlia D7K_0107FBRS

Arbutus Abstract

Arbutus Abstract

I just got back from a 3 day trip to Salt Spring and Pender Island with the Comox Valley Camera Club.  We spent 2 nights in Sidney BC and then took day trips to the Islands via BC Ferries.  The weather wasn’t fantastic so some of the photo’s have light grey sky, but, hey that’s the way it goes sometimes.  The Islands were beautiful and I’ve never ventured over that way before so it was great to see new scenery.  We visited Salt Spring Island first and went to the Saturday Vendor Market, to the top of Mt Maxwell, Ruckles Park with a visit to the historic farm at Ruckles Park to see the wild (Not very) turkeys there.  Sunday we went over to Pender Island and went to Bricky Bay, Roesland Park and Brooks Point on South Pender Island.  Lots of scenery and stuff to see.  My favorite part of the trip was the Arbutus Grove and Bluff in Roesland.  I love the wild shapes and strength of the Arbutus.  It’s a really cool tree..
