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.

Burnaby Mountain and other posts coming

Posts have been far less frequent now that I am back to work full-time but I have been busy taking photos on my days off (weather permitting), so there are a number of new ones to post once I find the time to download them from my Sony camera. Its a challenge trying to fit everything done before into a much smaller time frame. The photo above shows Burnaby Mountain off in the background just to the right and the one below shows Metrotown in south Burnaby off in the distance. You can also see Mount Baker, a volcano, in that one. So the next post will be about Burnaby Mountain in north Burnaby, BC. If you've loved my other photos, you'll love these (and the view) as well. Something to look forward to.
