This photo, from Polek Rybczynski's Sea to Sky Photo journal was taken in Pemberton on November 12. The caption I used for it is something I have been saying to myself all year. Just about my whole life actually. Simple Life. The longer I live though, the more it becomes evident to me that I … Continue reading It’s all in the mind: Polek Rybczynski simplifies his approach
It makes intuitive sense to a 3 year old - leave a place better then you found it. Leave a trace of love. Photo by Polek Rybczynski.
Today, Polek shares his photo journal entry from June 16, 2017. Feel like home?
Some backstory, from Lisa: Earlier in the month, I emailed Polek: "got a pic for Sunday?" And he shared this one: "my best and favourite photo taken to date. For me this photograph culminates years of learning. And relearning. I'm proud of how far I have come. But tomorrow, the learning continues." I was curious. … Continue reading When one second is all you get. Polek Rybczynski meditates on his best photograph yet
I read a David Suzuki quote once - "mountains are the water towers of the world" - and it has often returned to me, this realization that here, in the mountains, we are upstream of so much life and activity.

In this moment, may you find a treasure in whatever is before you. Photo by Polek Rybczynski.
Shares Polek: "Tae right now is all about throwing rocks, sticks, dirt, thankfully not too much food, and two year old tantrums.

"Mt Currie shed a layer and made a big rumble a few days ago," says Polek Rybczynski, who caught the action. "It was humbling and a reminder of the raw environment we live in. But it's all about the One Mile Lake Water Lilies this time of year for me. They steal the show. With subtle … Continue reading The yin and yang of summer, so far, is caught by Polek Rybcyznski’s lens
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
by Polek Rybcyznski: I had to shoot this frame of a Tulip in the garden as i had never seen a spider like this. I was amazed. It was not amazed at me, though - as as soon as i got within 2-3 feet of this spider, it would go up on its rear legs … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Polek Rybczynski meets a chameleon, the goldenrod crab spider
