Rose Lemay is my adopted niece, someone who I have known for more than forty years. Below is a link to a brilliant, inspirational speech (11 minutes) she made last September in Vancouver to an audience of Indigenous peoples. Her words brought tears to my eyes.

Thunderbird Partnership Foundation along with the First Nations Health Managers Association hosted a special workshop on Reconciliation in Mental Health, in September 2015.

Much appreciated +Sarah Myers ... as you might have guessed, I love photographing people. I've found that if you ask for permission in an honest, sincere manner, most people readily agree.

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 centre. 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 D800 since 2012. However, during travels to other countries, I continue to rely on my trusty Nikon D80. My cameras are my constant companions.
 
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.
