Waxing nostalgic

"Back in the day" is a popular phrase, but let me take you back to another day. This Ford tractor was the first one my grandparents owned. Before that, and even after for a while, they used horses. My uncle restored this to showroom condition. Here is a fine example of a "Happy Days" car, a 1956... Sign in to see full entry.

Vacation memories

As close to a vacation as I will probably get this summer was the afternoon I spent with my sister and mother at my Uncle's place. His place is right on the Columbia River. Sometimes I forget that people drive many miles to visit this part of the country. Having grown up here, I take these types of... Sign in to see full entry.

Even if I told you...

There is a road close to here that has a very odd name. Now, I could just tell you the name but you might think I was making it up. There is nothing to add impact to a story like a photo that clinches it all. No, I don't think any doctors live along this road. Sign in to see full entry.

Try anything

As we walked around Vancouver I thought I would try a few interesting shots. The first was a weird little car along the street covered with refrigerator magnet letters. There was a warning in the back window that the letters were glued on and please don't mess with them. I'm not sure if this was a... Sign in to see full entry.

City scapes

I'm used to shooting the hills and mountains, my normal views. So when I found myself in downtown Vancouver, B.C. recently, my normal backdrops were nowhere to be found. Rather, I faced the relentless walls of the city. It reminded me more of New York City than far-flung Canada. Turning to the west... Sign in to see full entry.

You'll never remember it all

Its the old adage that a picture is woth a thousand words. Oh sure, you can tell someone about this place you saw in the city, or can you? No one will believe this either, I mean Vampire snacks is the first thing that pops into my head, not Falafels. Sign in to see full entry.

More of those contrasts

The hotel across from ours was a thoroughly modern design, all glass and shaped somewhat like the hull of a boat, in fact there was a structure on top that resembled a boat hull although from this angle you can't see it. This contrast is two-fold, first I took this shot from ground level in the... Sign in to see full entry.

Contrast isn't only lighting

Contrast can present itself in various ways. On a recent visit to Vancouver, B.C. I saw a building that stood out because it wasn't the typical box the other buildings came in. Then I noticed the angle afforded a contrast of old and new architecture. Another contrast is man versus nature. So I put... Sign in to see full entry.

It pays to try things

For years I have been envious of those National Georgraphic photos of cities at night. They just look cool. So recently I found myself with the opportunity to take one of those shots. Only, I didn't have the prerequisite tripod. So I took a deep breath and went out onto the balcony of our hotel... Sign in to see full entry.

How close is close enough?

I was trying to fill the frame with my grandson's face, but his curiosity about the camera drew him closer and closer. I snapped the photo even though in the rush of things, I didn't know how close he had gotten. Turns out, pretty close. Even though he overruns the frame, I still like the picture....
