A Trip To The Moon (Farm)

My summer trip to British Columbia was to visit with my ever growing west coast family and attend the wedding of my niece Megan and her partner Teo, on their farm in Birken BC.
An early morning start for the long trip from Vancouver up the Sea to Sky Highway, which is under construction for the oncoming 2010 Olympics, to the wedding location in Birken on the
Moon Farm.

There's Something About Jesse

Great distances and busy lives can keep us apart from important people in our lives.The love and respect is always there but the physical interaction is sadly missed. Making the inevitable reunion...some kind of wonderful!
In a world that can be very black or white, there is always time for a Sunryz.

Mason Street Turntable

There is something about a 135 year old technology that has not really changed and is still in use today, that you have to love. San Francisco Cable Cars are simple and beautiful

Videoblogging week 2008 - Day 6

The Castle is a house in my neighbourhood, built by eighty five year old reclusive artist, Max. He has been working on the castle since his retirement but he prefers to measure the work by inspiration and not time. Max has incorporated styles from around the world to create a cultural mosaic. The work on the House is slow and sadly, often falls prey to vandals. The Castle will always be a work in progress.
