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.

Boundary Road Photos

Last week during a break in all the rain and before the colder weather with snow came, I got off the bus early and decided to walk the rest of the way home after a night of work. The fresh air and the walk did me good. Despite the approaching winter, all is not dead and lifeless yet. There are some shrubs in flower and colurful berries to see. Note the holly berries below.

I believe this is a larch tree but the photo below is of the crown of a Monkey Puzzle tree plus a close-up shot. The Christmas season is fast approaching! Perhaps these images will help inspire you.
