A Rainy Walk by the Coquihalla River | Hope BC

If you walk down our driveway, turn right and right again, after a few minutes you reach the Coquihalla River on its way to its confluence with the Fraser. It’s a pleasant, forested walk that borders the river and eventually loops back around to make a nice circuit route. I had some Ilford FP4 in […]

The Old Alexandra Bridge | Yale BC | Aerial photography

My blog has always been a place where I only ever post work shot on film and these days there are only 2 non-film cameras that I pick up; my iPhone, and my Phantom 4 Pro drone. I’ve been toying with the idea of posting some of my aerial shots from my drone on here […]

Merritt and the Nicola Valley | British Columbia

The Nicola Valley enjoys a dry, sunny micro-climate, and if it’s rainy in Hope it’s probably sunny in the Nicola Valley. We’re lucky to have easy access to this ochre-hued ranch country – just an hour or so up the Coquihalla from Hope – the temperature drops by around 13 degrees or so over the […]

Its literally no more than […]

Thacker Marsh | Hope BC | Portra 800

This afternoon we headed out for a walk and I took my Leica to check that a recent repair had done the trick. There is something particular I have noticed here in Canada, and it’s how often there are incredibly fleeting moments that appear one second and are gone literally the next. So many times […]

Downtown Chilliwack | Pentax Zoom 90 | TRI-X 400

I discovered that my Leica M6 shutter needs some attention, so at the moment while it’s being repaired I am without a small, compact 35mm option. Consequently when we headed to Chilliwack recently to run a few errands and walk around the old downtown area I decided to dig out my dad’s old 35mm compact […]
