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.

Early January scenes from Burnaby Mountain

Last Wednesday I went up to the top of Burnaby Mountain after finishing work at 8am. The #135 bus goes to Simon Fraser University (SFU) and from there I took the trail to the west end of the mountain. The weather looked promissing when I left work but the breaks in the cloud cover began to close as I reached my destination. Oh well. These photos will show you the scene that morning with cloud and all, even some snow on the mountain. We are expecting some sunshine after all these weeks of overcast and rainy weather. This will allow me to take some photos giving a different mood to the scene.
