a detailed look at land and seascapes plus the flora and fauna around us through the photographic image
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.

The Year in Review - Sapperton - March 2014
Above is a photos of the side street near home. You might recognize it from a photo in an earlier post but this one is minus the snow.
The Thifty Foods on Columbia Street in Sapperton (New Westminster) is now a Save On Foods since it was sold since this photo was taken earlier this year. There is a story behind that if you care to do some online research.
The grocery store is sitting on land that used to be part of a former brewery, Labatt's.

Setting up a photography business involving Brad is no longer in the plans but one involving my son Wahid may be in the works for the future since my son had expressed an interest in photography. There is time to sort all this out. Any feedback or interest let me know.
