Recently I had the privilege to photograph Emma, a talented young dancer from Nanaimo. I am in total awe of this young woman’s drive and commitment her art and to be the best dancer she can be. If only my talents as a photographer had been up to the challenge of capturing her grace and motion. Stay tuned for a few more images of the incredible Emma in action.
Canada Day was a scorcher this year! I thank the non-denominational non gender-specific supreme entity of your choice that my wife insisted I wear a hat and lots of sunscreen! Otherwise I would have come home redder than a Mountie in his serge! I spent a few very enjoyable hours wandering around Swyalana Lagoon and photographing all the different events. There was a wonderful peaceful happy and oh so Canadian vibe in the air. There were so many cultures represented at the celebrations and it made me SO happy to be a Canadian.
I recently had a chance to take a weekend and just do landscape photography. I made stops at Englishman River Falls, and the Medicine Bowls outside of Courtenay, Gold River, and Buttle Lake and Myra Falls. Buttle Lake at dawn is one of my favorite places in my Island world.
Kathy and I and Bono took a drive up to Courtenay today. One of our stops was at this amazing old church that has been converted into a theater. Here is the best half of this lovely old church mirrored!
