Twenty years ago, I went back to university to get a second degree. These were taken on a field trip as part of a geology course I was taking at the time. From Vancouver, we drove up the coast on the Sea to Sky Highway and stopped along the way to look at rocks and […]
In November 1994, I took a trip to Australia with my best friend Barry. We spent four weeks exploring the continent down under. These are from Byron Bay, the most easterly point in Australia.
In the summer of 1991, I took a family trip to Italy for a cousin’s wedding. These were all taken from the balcony of the house where I stayed in my father’s hometown of Bagnoli del Trigno. It’s a tiny little town in the Italian region of Molise.
After a short hike, we finally made it up to Widgeon Falls. The guys and I took a much needed break to eat lunch and enjoy the scenery before hiking back down to the canoes and the long paddle back.
As we paddled along Widgeon Creek, one of the guys spotted a tributary to the creek. Despite the clear “Do Not Enter” sign and the chain across the entrance, we decided it was worth a further look. The water level of the creek was just high enough over the chain that we could paddle our […]
My first trip to Widgeon Falls was back in July 1994. My friend Kevin was getting married and he really wanted to do this hike for his bachelor party. So we rented some canoes and paddled across Pitt Lake past Siwash Island to the entrance of Widgeon Creek. But that was only the beginning of […]
Here are some more photos from the 1991 Stein Valley ‘Voices for the Wilderness’ Festival on Seabird Island. Many bands took the stage that weekend and sadly I can only remember one of them: Spirit of the West.
In July 1991, the Stein Valley ‘Voices for the Wilderness’ Festival had relocated to Seabird Island. I met up with some friends at the festival that weekend and shot these photos of the guys doing some face painting and body art. These were taken with my old point & shoot camera and a roll of […]
Here are some more photos from my trip to the Oregon coast in the late ’90s. I shot almost exclusively with Fuji film back then because I loved Fuji’s colour palette with its saturated cooler colours. Incidentally, back then I didn’t like Kodak film which had a warmer tone. Today, it’s quite the opposite. While […]
From time to time, I plan to post old photos I took decades ago before digital cameras. I call this series From the Vault. These photos were taken at the Oregon sand dunes back in the late ’90s. I had an old point & shoot camera back then that I had painstakingly saved up to […]
