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.

Vancouver's False Creek - South Shore Part I

The weather last Sunday (March 29) was sunny and reasonably warm for the season, so while I was in Vancouver for some training connected with work, I decided to take a walk along the south shore of False Creek starting at around Science World. These are some of the photos that resulted from my series of shots taken (part I). The image above shows what looks like a weathervane/artwork of some sort but there also looks to be a camera there as well. Have a close look. That photo was taken outside the dome at Science World. Below is a view of False Creek looking west from Science World. Yaletown is on the right and the winter olympic village on the left.

There is a pigeon resting in the photo above and a closer view of the village in the photo below.

There are some pieces of artwork around the Science World location, such as the wood sculpture above and then a general view of the area in the image below.

Since last taking photos of the olympic complex under construction, a lot of work has been done despite the set-backs that have struck the work. The remainder of the photos will show what progress has been made since last autumn. Part II to follow soon. Meantime, enjoy these photos!
