All photos taken holding my iphone out the window of my car as I commute from Quadra Island through Campbell River en route to my practice in Courtenay, on Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
“Fishing” and “whale watching”. Now that summer is here & I’ve begun participating in both activities, I’m giving the words a think.
I haven’t caught any fish while “fishing” nor have I seen any whales while “whale watching”. Yet here I am on the outside deck of the bc ferries commute from Quadra Island to my Campbell River practice/work ~ whale searching!? The sun is out. Isn’t that all that really matters? Can’t look overboard & type at the same time, while looking for whales. B-bye.
This takes us calling the small ferry to the big island (on our daily commutes to work) “the cruise” to a hole new level. This was taken from my iphone, in my car on the wee ferry headed back to Quadra. Usually they are doing the Vancouver to Alaska trip. This isn’t even close to the biggest cruise ships that come through here in the tourist season. Cool, though, heh?
Today’s commute photo is of my dads cool ocean front condo. (also the tulip one downtown campbell river). In the foreground is my Obama surfer dude, car, bobble head. Yes, he does have dried gum on his head.
I was considering taking it off my dash, over his lack of enviro concern – specifically oil money and war…. But last week I was so proud of him for risking his re-election by being the first president to ever go on record in favor of gay marriage. Unless you live under a rock, you heard about this announcement. I couldn’t resist reposting the other photos!
I found myself using my ferry commute to work as an opportunity for creative expression for my BLOG. However, most of what I found mysef writing was judgemental about hippies etc…and not very pretty. When I open my eyes up during my commute, which can be very helpful while driving… I see a LOT of beauty. It is, in fact, the reason I moved back to the coast, almost 2 years ago. So without further a dew.. (ado?) here is a new photography catagory for your viewing pleasure. It will be found down the side column with the other catagories on my blog & photos can be enlarged or saved by double clicking on them.
