Seaweed graffiti
Nearing sundown on a grey afternoon, a tidepool somehow found a bit of blue sky to reflect. I stopped to take a photo. It wasn't until later that I noticed the seaweedy face frowning at me across the pool. Seaweed designs on rocks. A few steps away from the...

Seen in passing
One of a pair of deer browsing across from a mall, taken through the car window. A frozen moment; he watched me, I watched him. Only my shutter finger moved. And his ears. After a while, he went back to his lunch and I drove on.

Fishing boat dock, revisited.
Last November, I explored the docks where the fishing boats tie up , peering down into the water between the dock and boat sides, and between the old creosoted pilings. The winter has come and gone; the sun shines down the cracks and into the dark crevices ...

Lilac to purple
A few flowers from around my block. Lilac. It seems everybody here has a lilac bush. The streets are perfumed. Unidentified flowers growing in a great mound by a driveway. Beautiful, even the dying ones in the centre. I had to sit on the curb for this one. ...

Fluff monsters
Dandelions are stubborn. And sneaky. My patch of "lawn" here in Campbell River is about one third grass, half hawkweed, and the rest dandelions. I'm working on digging out the hawkweed, mowing the grass, and cutting down the dandelions as they appear. But t...

Just plain lucky
If I hadn't been looking at tidepool sculpins. If I hadn't gotten down on my elbows and knees to see the big plumose anemone under the rock in the sculpins' pool. If the sun hadn't angled in at just that moment; I would have passed these by without noticing...

Takeover
This household is under new management. Changes will be made. Chia. 9 weeks old, and already calling the shots. She's been here only two hours, and I've had to redecorate, re-organize, and share my workspace. No telling what tomorrow will bring.

While the sun shines
The morning sun is high enough these days to reach my kitchen window and bounce its light off the wall back towards the aquarium for a few minutes; I took advantage of it to get some quick photos with natural light. First shot. I didn't even bother to turn ...

More purple
This time, it's a crab. Blue, purple, and red-brown crab. Tyee Spit. Tomorrow: peering past pilings.

Where the bee sups
The weather has been warm the last few days, so I was chasing bees. They were chasing pollen, and too excited about the new goodies on the trees to stay in any one spot for more than a few seconds. And they had company, which I was too busy following bees t...

It's good to be home
After the foray into the vibrant colours and light of Mazatlan, I've come back to the clouds, the rain, and the paler spring colours of home; lilacs and pinks and periwinkle blues. And down on the shore, instead of creamy sand, there are rocks covered in bl...
