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.

A Spring Sunday in Vancouver

Sunday we had a break in all the rain plus the sun made an appearance, so I went into Vancouver for the afteroon. These photos were taken along West Georgia Street at an apartment complex as I was nearing Stanley Park. Beautiful to see the cherry trees and spring heathers in bloom.
Here is a closer view of the spring heathers (by the height likely Erica x darleyensis varieties) and the cherry blossoms. In the background are magnolia trees (saucer).

Enjoy these photos. There will be many more since I was in Vancouver's Stanley Park again Tuesday afternoon using my new Sony DSLR digital camera. Expect some more awesome images. Till later!
