Waiting for the train, the nostalgia
A lovely and quiet evening walk…
📍White Rock Beach Promenade #604
This image resonates with how I felt today, being on the inside, looking out into the space of time, of life. I’m sure that my having migraines the last few days has contributed to this feeling as well 😖
My apologies for the lack of postings… I’ve been feeling uninspired lately and thus haven’t posted much. I’ve been going through a personal incubation period of sorts which can demand all of my energies till I emerge on the other side, lighter and hopefully more self enlightened. Those of you familiar with Thomas Moore’s writings will understand what I’m talking about
The collateral beauty after a big storm… The beautiful calm and a sense of community as everyone comes out to to see the damage and share stories. A bit surreal seeing the gap in what was the longest pier in Canada, now in two segments. I don’t know if whether they will be able to selvage what’s left, it took a good beating with all the boats that were docked at the end by the breakwater, and being that’s it’s 104 years old, might mean structural damage can be greater that it appears to us right now.
Unfortunately the strong winds came right at it, slamming all the broken away boats into the pier. In the third image you can see the wreckages on the beach, quite the mess.
I also checked in on @cruseruser as the crew’s are still quite busy with post-storm calls, downed wires and trees still. I was amazed to see how many people ignored clearly cordoned off area due to live wires and ignored verbal earnings by him and his crew. What is wrong with some folks nowadays? Darwinism? RCMP also had to start ticketing people who ignore barriers blocking access onto the pier, as well as looting the washer up boats
Another year, another @wrfrauxillary annual Boot Drive completed. $2.5k+ and a few bins of non-perishable food donations will go to help those in need through White Rock’s Sources Food Bank. Despite 5 hrs of standing out in the chilly 5C temp, it was all smiles with holiday cheer. Wonderful to witness all who came out to support the WRFR Aux crew’s efforts, from young kids to seniors, all donations big and small were meaningful and wonderful gifts to help others is
This year I began to prepare an online store to share my art photography with everyone (store link in profile). Now I have a way to help fund this side passion of mine, so that I can keep capturing beautiful moments around beautiful British Columbia and globally when I’m not busy with photographing Cherished Moments or Special Events photo sessions with local families. (DM for more info & bookings)
