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.

winter scene - London, Ontario

Now that I'm getting the hang of using the new photo scanner here's a photo I took one bright winter day back in the early 1980s during an afternoon of cross country skiing. The scene is in a park just west of the Coves in London, Ontario. I ended up skiing for over six hours. The sun had set by the time I called it quits for the day. In the end I estimated that I had skied about 7 or more kilometers from one end of the park system to the other and back. I enjoyed the workout and the great night's sleep! I'll have more photos to post soon. - V

Thanks. I'll likely be posting some more this coming weekend. I've been scanning when time permits. Prints and slides have been my recent focus but I do plan to scan some negatives and work with them. Something to look forward to. - V
