Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

  I chose foreign to be not of this world. In May of 2012, the moon was closer than any other part of the year and we had a ring side seat coupled with great weather to capture what is described as a “super moon”. The Moon shapes our world everyday, from harvest night light…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

This is a capture from earlier this summer, but one I found as I was looking for another picture.  Sometimes we get lucky in our shots… Here we was watching a classical concert and I happen to hear a new instrument coming from behind …some may not call it musical but the Canada Goose “honking”…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

The harbour always offers new challenges and opportunities for capturing light.   The setting and rising sun deliver great views with less definition but still tell their story in a unique and interesting way.

Food On Campus Portland Market

Now we find the basis for some of the great food we did find in the restaurants around Portland.  The market was a joy to behold with fresh food as well as a variety of prepared foods which we sampled – including  salmon bagels and tacos.

Keeping It Weird _ Portland Visit

A quick trip to Portland as it was Thanksgiving north of the 49th, a long weekend in US of A and a special day for us.  Our first trip on the car ferry COHO from Victoria Harbour to outside of Seattle – village  of Port Angeles.  Then on to 10,000 foot mountains and cascading waterfalls.
