Shortly after I came out to British Columbia in early 2006 I had a case of severely high blood pressure. It wouldn't have been fair to an employer for me to work for them until I got my health situation sorted out. I was on medications to lower the blood pressure and it took until early 2007 to find the cause. I finally went to a naturopath who found that a microscopic parasite was the cause for all this.

While getting my health in order, I took up blogging to share my photography. This way I wasn't wasting time and others got to enjoy the photos, not just me and those close to me.

In May of this year I had a mini-stroke cause again by severely high blood pressure. I may end up gong to the naturopath again since the specialist and other MDs can't seem to find the cause. This has only been a problem out here. Before that in Ontario, the blood pressure was only marginally high, not severely high like in BC.

Knowledge is good because being forewarned is forearmed!

All that said, enjoy this blog and all the photos I share with you.

Pink Sky in Surrey

During the end of January we had a number of days with clear, sunny skies. This was approaching the full moon on February 2nd (Friday). The day these two photos were taken the eastern horizon was pink before the sky turned blue. You can see the moon rising (top centre) in the top image and you may see a tiny point of light in the sky in the second photo. We are on a flight path for planes approaching Vancouver International Airport. The jets and other aircraft can be seen quite often. Enjoy the photos!
