GALLERY: Recalling Summer 

 

A look at some of the shoreline views I had in Nova Scotia this summer, including looking across the Bay of Fundy at Halls Harbour. Somewhere closer to the southern shore of the province, I took the lone picnic bench shot.

Not sure what sort of somber mood I was in that day but it sure looks gloomy. That reminded me of the impending winter (he said, in balmy Vancouver) and had me thinking back to summer.

BLOG: (Welcome Back) Changes

It’s been about two years since my last post which lines up with my timeline of breaking my last laptop and purchasing this one. I’m terribly sorry to any and all that were hanging on to the This Week In Photos series. It’s been a quiet few years in terms of portfolio fodder but I’ve been doing some rather important personal growth. Also travelling and working and all that jazz.

Some of the highlights while I’ve been gone include:
