Meet one of our resident Anna’s hummingbirds, Slash. He’s been visiting our feeder for almost one year now, and he’s quite the feisty little fella, and vocal too. These photos were captured last December when I was first getting to know him, I think he had just become an adult as he was more bold; this year he seems more dominant and even more territorial. In photo 2 you get to see his tiny little feet, sort of like T-rex scrawny arms/hands, lol.
Such amazing little creatures
A friends old family dwelling in Ucluelet, generations of Canadian Japanese fishermen. A glimpse at what once was and how his father and his father’s fathers lived. After his father’s passing, the dwelling was no longer lived in, standing still in time until the family would decide what to do with it
Be forever curious to discover things you wouldn’t normally see/think/do, key to hone your & creative design skills.
I went on one of my “go discover” walks and found this beautiful old beached log with new growth at the end of it. The cracked splitting wood was so strikingly sculptural, had me wishing I could recreate this as a piece of art to be on a wall. I love how the decaying tree textures were emphasized by the lush green fern growth, a perfect collateral beauty example.
And a few other photos to capture “the beauty in small things” 😊
If you out this way, to see the many migratory birds and fowls have their pit stop here, see if you can discover this beauty yourself.
By the way, a friendly reminder to folks that this is a bird preserve, and so no dogs, not even on leash, are allowed inside this park. As migratory birds come through here all year round, please respect this space for them, allowing a safe haven. Thank you
When the weather works out and so do the colours = <3 This little beauty is heading off to the market, so the owner wanted to have some professional photos done to remember her by, and of the countless blood, sweat, and tears that went into making her.
We hadn’t quite planned to shoot at dusk at this lot with complex and awkward lighting, but we managed to make it work using my car headlights, plus reflectors acting as filters to get the softer light we needed to fill in spots I wanted to highlight more. Always learning
