Welcome to the March newsletter, thanks for your interest! This month has been another productive and creative one with photography outings to various areas of the south coast. I have explored some new areas of the Boundary Bay area, a quiet rural area in south Delta, and favourite haunts such as downtown New Westminster, The Shipyards, and the Annacis Channel of the Fraser River. There is truly a diverse set of areas here to photograph that matches well with my interest!
I wanted to pass along my thanks to everyone that has posted comments on these newsletters, I read each of them and do value your thoughts and insights! I always look forward to writing these newsletters as it provides an opportunity to review the month’s work, and to share my thoughts on the process. As you can imagine given the amount of photography that I do in a month, both commercially and fine art wise, it does start to become a blur as to what I have produced!
Enjoy the articles this month, be safe, and we’ll chat again soon!
Creativity in Off Weather
Recently I was thinking about the South Coast of BC and the thought that some have about the amount of rain that we get. While it is true that it rains here, often times during the rain events if you head south and west from the mountains, you can find dry areas. The following is a collection of photos made in between the showers one Saturday, all of which I feel are creative and expressive.
The Anvil Centre is a culture and community centre in New Westminster housing a variety of use spaces. On a visit to the area this month I decided to spend more time capturing the different facades and angles of this wonderful building.
Along the Annacis Channel
I took advantage of the continuing good weather one Saturday afternoon and headed out to an area near my home. The Annacis Channel is one of the navigable channels of the Fraser River and has interesting sites along it. I worked the Queensborough side of the channel and stopped at several locations, building on my knowledge of the area from previous trips.
It is always nice to gather the month’s abstracts in one collection to see the creative compositions that I have produced.
