Since moving back home to Pemberton in 2013, I have been committed to creating a reputation as a photographer of people, of celebrations, smiles and memories. I'm a people person, and I can't wait to share some of these moments with you in the future. But do you want to know a secret? Landscapes are my … Continue reading Scorned Timber
I have family out east, who say they feel claustrophobic in the mountains - they like the wide skies of their flatland home. I'm sympathetic. But I like these mountains that hold up our sky. And the glimpses of sky and all its drama and glory. Thanks to Shayla Wallace for her ongoing Saturday posts. … Continue reading Shayla Wallace keeps an eye on the sky
This was a glimpse, said Polek,... I was streching in the living room when Tae, my 2 year old, was napping, and this was the glimpse when I opened my eyes between stretches. If the feature photo is a glimpse of life between stretches, the second one, below, is a glimpse of life between naps. … Continue reading What we see when we open our eyes… with Polek Rybczynski

There's room for … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Victoria Saddleman shows us there’s more than one way to see things (and no beauty is forfeited for the variety)
Thanks to Stu Armstrong, for training his lens on this gathering (seriously, it's called a convocation) of eagles in Pemberton on Wednesday.
Take it to the river. Your sorrow, your longing, your aching heart. The river, somehow, always seem to have the capacity to absorb it, and to keep on flowing. Gary Martin shares this image as his monthly contribution to our Wellness Almanac photo blog: An early morning moment of reflection and contemplation after some sad … Continue reading This is what it looks like to take solace by the river, with @garypmartin, photographer
I'm a bit of a farm groupie, ICMYI - red tractors, flowering fields, rubber boots and piles of freshly harvested vegetables are my kind of eye-candy, so I had to give a shout-out to North Arm Farm for their delectable instagram feed. It's a bit of an undiscovered gem of an instagram account, and Emma … Continue reading Instagrammers of Pemberton: check out @northarmfarm
