Some By-Passed Photos

I was going through some of my older pics the other day, and finding quite a few that never made it into these pages, I thought I could use some of them to make up for the lack of photography I’ve been doing while I’m involved in moving 8-10 years of my accumulated life from one location to another. These types of pictures don’t usually get missed in the first cut because I’m particularly dissatisfied with them, but rather more it’s due to space considerations, or the fact that they are too similar to others that did make it into the original post. So at any rate, I’ve picked four of them for today, and before you think that Spring has come early here on the coast, I assure you, it’s the pictures that are “out of time”.

With all that said, I hope everyone is having a great year so far, I wish you all the best for a gentle Spring when it does come, and until next time, please stay, as I always pray for, happy, healthy, and safe.

A Glance At The Park

Just thought I would sneak in a quick picture of this view I saw the other day, of Stanley Park beckoning to me from across the Bay. From where I took the picture, to the Park is roughly a 40-minute walk, and it’s one that I take quite often as I look for new things to snap pictures of while I work the aches and pains out of these creaky joints (they’re not really that creaky). Anyway, the bridge in the picture is called The Lions Gate, which is where the movie company that films so many of their movies here in Vancouver got their name from, and the people in those cars crossing that bridge are on their way to North Vancouver, or maybe West Vancouver or parts beyond. The North Shore Mountains make up the back-drop. As  you can see, our weather has been holding, and I hope yours has also. Everyone take care now, stay safe, and we’ll see you next time.

That’s More Like It

The first  thing I thought when I saw this scene as I was out walking today was, “Now that looks a little more like summer!” So never being too far from my trusty Nikon, I snapped it, and here it is just so no one can deny that we actually had a summer this year, no matter how short it may have been.

Changes Soon To Come

So I managed to get out yesterday and today, and even set my camera to a couple hard days work. Though I obviously haven’t had time to work on the results yet (a total of roughly 850 shots), I thought I would let you see the very first one that I just finished a few minutes ago. I thought it worked out alright as far as samples go, and hopefully in the next few days I’ll be able to put a gallery together that will be worth waiting for. In the meantime, I hope everyone is enjoying their summer, and for my American friends in particular, I hope these election shenanigans are at least working out as well as you could possibly hope for. Everyone take care, and remember the sunscreen.

Hello From Vancouver, Canada

I was planning on changing the posting on my site today, but got myself into a rush and discovered I didn’t have a whole lot of time left to do much of anything. So instead of a detailed gallery, I decided to give you all a quick look at what my favorite country looks like from Outer Space, when you take into account all the different soil temperatures, textures, moisture levels and such. All these things were figured out by the RADARSAT-2 Data satellite that actually took the 121 pictures that were required to produce this one final shot. So here it is, the country where I live, and if you find the little arrow down around the bottom left-hand corner, you might be able to spot me waving up at you as I rush out my door. If not, catch you next time.
