10/17/2004: "Suffering for the Sake of Art - A Photo Blog Entry"

I went out for coffee with my friend Karen today and afterwards hiked part of the Perseverance Trail, then snapped a few photos on the way home. I got all excited while driving over the Douglas Bridge because the light turned a beautiful golden color so I parked the car (nearly running off the road), crawled under a gaurdrail, f*^&ed up my back and knee and got one of my shoes run over by a car, but in the end it was worth it. Below is a sample, I plan to make some of the scenic ones into wallpaper.

I think so too, the fall is such a pretty time of the year here, the tundra on the mountains turns that russet color and on clear days, th lighting can be very dramatic. I don't have a camera so I see these really striking compositions all the time but usually don't have anyway to record it. I just lucked out that I had a camera for the weekend that I had rented from the computer lab. Anyway, glad you like them!

Daahling - you do wonders with the camera!!! Not to mention you're a great philosopher, wonderful counselor and amazingly able to function in your left brain for an artiste. Always.....THANKS! :)
