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.

colour - autumn and otherwise

During the last weekend of September I was in Vancouver to check out the autumn colour in Stanley Park. These are some of the photos that resulted from that visit. While the first two photos have nothing to do with fall colours, I found the design and colour of this highrise condo building along West Pender Street interesting. There are shops on the ground level and then condos above. This building is a few blocks east of where West Pender meets West Georgia Street. There are a number of buildings of interest in the area. Check it out if you're in the area.

The maples along West Georgia Street were starting to show some of their colours. This is in the block as we near Stanley Park.
