Queen of Nanaimo

The coloring against the deep blue water is amazing.

Here are four kayaks on a dock with some great shadows.  Quite truthfully it is hard to take a bad picture of a kayak.  They have such interesting lines.

Porsche 356 Roadster

Porsches over the years have managed to keep a certain style with their 356 and 911 models while still being able to update their cars to a more modern look.  A lot of it I think has to do with the headlights.  If you look closely along the lens you can see evidence of fowl play.

A Variety of Fuels

These fuel containers were strapped to the deck of a pretty beaten up saiboat from Alaska.  I was just amused by the colors and the repetition.

I just love the colors of the rusty winch against the grey water at Fulford Harbor on Saltspring Island.  If you ever go there make sure to visit the Rock Salt Cafe.  We went there for lunch and I had the Texicana Naan Sandwich and it was one of the best meals I have ever had – for $11.  Definitely worth the stop.

Bow – Wow

I was visiting Ganges Harbor on Saltspring Island with some friends and we happened upon a boat show where we were able to board a bunch of working and pleasure boats of various sizes and types.  This is a fancy cruiser with an interesting shadow cast across the bow.

Mount Saint Helens

I grew up in central Alberta.  In 1980 I was 11 years old so I didn’t really understand the significance of the eruption of Mount Saint Helens.  My wife and I tried to visit there in about 1998 but there was low fog and rain so we just had to imagine what it would look like.  Last week we decided to meet some friends there and ended up seeing it on a gloriously sunny day and here are a couple of the shots from that day.

Apple Orchard

I have lived in a region of Canada that grows a lot of apples for over 10 years now.  I often try to get a good photograph of an apple orchard and no matter how hard I try I cannot seem to get a great photo of one.  This one is alright.

Montgomery Park #2

While eating lunch while taking a course at Montgomery Park in Portland Oregon I took photographs the first couple of days.  That is until Security told me that I was no longer to take photographs anywhere in or around the building in case I was planning a terrorist attack.  I really think we all need to lighten up a bit.

Sculpture Silhouette

I have sometimes asked myself if I take a photo of a sculpture or other artwork does it mean that my photo is not art rather just a record of someone’s artwork?  In this case I think it is alright since it shows the sculpture in a light that is rarely seen.
