Lichen of Love

Silently tey love in a very colourful manner.

A Leaf Fell in My Path

I could step over. I could step on. I could step around.
I chose to stop and quietly admire then reversed my way so as to not disturb the slumber.

Solid Advice

When I was about four years old I pushed a rock into my nostril. Just to see if I could, I guess. I will never forget it. I didn't think I would ever get it out.

Don't tell anyone. It is our secret.

Camera

Some guys with cameras attract wandering hands. Not me.

A palindrome can be a boat but a boat is not necessarily a palindrome.

I see a cute smiling face waiting to be lovingly stroked.

Quesnel Forks

It is Colette Amelia's birthday so we went for a drive. To the ghost town of Quesnel Forks. To check out the cemetery.

It is never too early to shop around.

Risking Life and Limb

It is interesting. They put this little barrier to protect your life but in order to get to it you have to risk life and limb. The climb down can be quite treacherous. One slip and it is either broken bones or the ride of a lifetime in a very fast running river.

I, of course, am up at a safe spot whereas good old Colette Amelia is in the danger zone.

Breaching

Some days the world just doesn't seem as friendly as it I think it should be.

I should rephrase that.

Some days the world as dominated by human animals just doesn't seem as friendly as it I think it should be.

Up All Night

Prince Charming was awake all night trying to find Cinderella. He finally decided to hang the shoe in hopes that she would find it and he went home for some sleep.

Chicken Little Was Right!

I saw this piece of missing sky and wondered if Chicken Little had the right idea and maybe the sky is falling? Naw, I think the lesson that the story teaches us is correct. If you tell enough people that the sky is falling, that will become the reality.

Does it matter if the sky is falling if everyone believes it is? After all, perception is reality. What we believe is reality to us. If you believe in a god or ghosts or even if you believe that your neighbour just might be working for the CIA it will be true for you.

Or if a town thinks that crime is out of hand it will be. A self-full-filling prophecy.

Moving here from a city with gun fire in the streets was a big change but people seem to think crime is a huge problem here. Even the Welcome Wagon Lady drew attention to it. Now that is a good way to welcome people to town.

The thing is that I haven't ducked any bullets recently. This is paradise. And the sky is not falling.

My Precious

We all have a "precious" om our lives but we don't all know it.

I think I have found my "precious."

The Distant Future

Think about it. This is running resin.

Amber is fossilized resin from a time long long ago. This bit of resin could harden and, some time in the future, become some one's dangling jewelry.

I should attach a copy of the photo to the tree so that the person can have a shot of the manufacturing process.

Preparing for Take-off

Actually went out shooting photos today. Not a satisfactory shoot but the fact that we went is what is important.
Kim got all the good shots.

Have you ever thought "I should stick my finger in just to see if anything is living down there."

Autumn Showers

I know, I know. Raindrops on roses is soooo cliche but we all need a little cliche now and again.

It is always good to have a friend to lean on during troubled times.

She looked up at me with her arms outstretched and said "Pick me up. Please?"

Nightmare

I had nightmares last night. In it, I went to a slummy trailer park and stole $10,000 and tow large gold bars. Never got caught. I had to go through a kind of border crossing and never got searched. I guess I looked too honest.

There were also some very short people, maybe two feet tall. They called themselves Geneticants. Genetic Mutants. Whatever that means.

I cannot imagine stealing.

Well, not quite true. Back in the 70s we got really lousy service at a Keg Restaurant. We stole two steak knives. I still have them. I have been on the run from the law for over 3 decades.

My Story

My photo

I got my first camera, a Canon Ft QL, in 1974. It was supplemented by a Canon F1 in 1976 so that I could have a camera for black and white and one for colour. 

I still have those beauties but now they have eased into retirement. They relax on my shelf beside many other old beauties.

Now I use a Canon 5D MK II. How convenient to use one camera for both colour and black and white.
