City Center Library, Surrey, BC

One fine evening I traveled to the Surrey City Library Complex, a cluster of municipal buildings that is arguably the jewel in Surrey's architectural crown. I arrived at dusk, as the angles and reflections deepened in the evening light. So much to explore and photograph. As usual the time passed far too quickly.

Shades of the Past

A while back I spent a few days on a rural property in Matsqui, BC. Among the various farm buildings was a house, built in 1955, awaiting demolition. It was a fascinating study in texture, color, and deterioration over time. So much can happen in 60 years, and this place was a vivid and poignant testament to the lives that had passed through it.

La Conner Gold

Last spring I visited La Conner, a tiny Washington community known for its colorful Tulip Festival. I arrived too soon for tulips. Instead, I was treated to fields blanketed in glittering gold. It was daffodil season. Such an amazing spectacle! The surrounding areas offered plenty of charm, from the majesty of Deception Pass to a rusted 1939 Buick looking for a home.

A Cut Above

Recently I was introduced to the work of local sculptor Peter Lattey. Peter creates remarkable masks and sinuous, organic pieces from found wood. Happily I had my camera along and was inspired to capture a few impressions.

Chinese Lantern Festival, Vancouver

This winter brought a very special event to our local fairgrounds - the First Annual Chinese Lantern Festival. The lights went on at dusk, and what spectacular lights they were: blazing, colorful displays of traditional and contemporary designs. The evening ended much too soon - I could have stayed for several hours. Maybe next year!!!

The Big Island

Last Spring we traveled to the Big Island of Hawaii, on a quest to experience as many Hawaiian islands as possible. Like Kauai and Maui, the Big Island offers up unique delights to visitors, and we had many adventures. Of special interest were the palms, which I photographed like the firs and pines of BC. The result was quite intriguing.

Britannia Shipyard

Today was a very pleasant outing to Steveston, BC. We visited Britannia Shipyard, a newly restored heritage site that celebrates the area's rich fishing and shipbuilding history. The day was perfect: crisp and clear. Lots to see and photograph. Below is a very small sampling.
