Hey Derek I saw you post this morning and to my surprise the travel section in today's paper had exactly the same shot obviously without you and Georgette in it this morning. How bizarre!

I'm reposting this album as I've reorganized it and added several new photos. (Note: according to today's news reports, 100,000 spectators lined the parade route. I believe it!)

+Suzanne Bell ..... I have to thank this friendly couple for being so cooperative. The one thing they wanted to know was whether I was a cop!!

Introduction
G+ Circles: If you add me to one of your circles , I will circle you back if your profile includes your photo and provides a reasonable amount of information about you and your interests. I enjoy seeing the work of other photographers, including newcomers to this medium.

I will not circle those who conceal or misrepresent their identity,  or who are trying to sell me something, or who show hatred towards others.
 
If you comment on one of my photos, I will make every effort to comment back. I love receiving +1's on my photos but don't always have the time to acknowledge them. 
 
I grew up in West Vancouver and attended the University of British Columbia, where I honored in Political Science. I've lived in Vancouver all my life. I am in my second marriage - to a beautiful, wonderful woman and soul mate, Georgette. We married in 1997. 

Since my retirement, Georgette and I have traveled to Europe, India and Nepal, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Morocco, Turkey, and most recently, South America (Ecuador, Chile, Peru, Brazil, and Argentina.) 

My passions include writing, movies and music of all kinds, browsing the Internet, cycling, hiking, and keeping fit at the local community. I am also chairperson of the Vancouver School Board Archives and Heritage Committee (a voluntary group.)
 
I became interested in photography at an early age. During Grades 11 and 12, I was lead photographer for my school's Student Annual, which required that I develop and print all my photos. My cameras included a Rolleiflex (Tessar) and later, 2 Leicaflexes.
 
I bought my first digital camera, an Olympus, in 2005, and was instantly hooked. I especially enjoyed being able to PhotoShop my photos. It was like having my darkroom back, only better! I have used a Nikon D80 since 2007. It is my constant companion.
 
Sharing photos through Picasa and G+ has opened my eyes to many new ways of approaching photography. I've learned a lot from other photographers, and I believe I've become a better photographer as a result.
