Life after Jay

A few weeks ago I finished a one week photography workshop put on by Jay Maisel (of Spring Street in New York City) within the parameters of the venue offered by Vancouver Workshops in British Columbia, Canada.  Jay still has me framing photos better in my mind.  I am grateful for that.  It was a […]

Pacific Northwest – Day 9

We left Port Alberni this morning about 9am for the drive to Ucluelet.  This was finally, more or less off the grid for the GPS insofar as restaurants or lodging.  It did have the roads, but few names to them at this point. However, it should… the place is hopping with people.  We had a […]

Pacific Northwest – Day 5

We had a great day starting off with a 5.2 miles hike out the CAPE LOOKOUT trail.  The CAPE juts out into the Pacific about 2 miles I think.  We started off at about 850 ft. elevation and ended 400 feet above the sea.  It was spectacular.  A footfall from the edge of human existence.  […]
