Lifetimes Remembered. (7 photos)

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

I find myself from time to time wondering about Bella’s (pic 1 & 3) fox kits when the seasons change or when we have more extreme weather… wondering if they are ok, wondering who will remain after this oncoming winter, wishing wellness for the mom too.
This little one we nicknamed Butch (short for the butcher) in pic 2 as he was the dominant one always grabbing the fresh kill it’s mother would bring back. It would run around with the bunny and then find one of the den holes to go into and stash it or gnaw into proper pieces, throwing out the non edible parts.

My last trip to observe them was towards end of July, and I only spotted Bella by her lonesome self, as pictured in 1 & 3, waiting by the roadside for both social interaction and to beg for food. If you ever see any foxes up close, please don’t feed them, don’t even bait them. A couple of her kits were found dead by this very area the week before, too curious and tempted by human intervention. The two had been struck by a car, as they must have been lingering and hadn’t learned the dangers of the road yet. I believe the pair to be the siblings whom were inseparable (pic 4, 5, 6), and it was a very sad realization to have, seeing and hearing about the impact some thoughtless humans had on these beautiful creatures
