A New Year: A New Post

Gulls soar on the wind as waves crash at Cattle Point

Happy New Year! How quickly 2017 flew by. The days, months, seasons just seemed to run together. As the saying goes, “time flies when you’re having fun”. I must have been having fun. 

Since starting my blog in June of 2013 I’ve written and posted just over 130 articles. Generally, the topics I chose to write about reside in 3 thematic areas – My Work, Travel and Education. Starting with this post I’ve added a new theme, The Creative Process. This new theme reflects my growing interest in this area. It will be fun to explore.  

My goal, to write and publish a weekly article has not always been accomplished.  As with New Year’s resolutions distractions happen. So, this year my goal is simply to write whenever I can. That’s it.  

This post is the 1st of several in which I will display my favourite images of 2017. I spent almost 2 months of 2017 in Victoria, including the month of October. On almost a daily basis I was able to get out with my camera. Back streets particularly in James Bay, the Oak Bay Marina and the Victoria waterfront became my frequent destinations. This selection of images and others to be posted in subsequent articles show my appreciation for Victoria’s beauty.

      Thanks Sheryl! I try to put my own ‘stamp’ on them. They question I always ask myself, “Does the image represent what I saw and felt at the time I made it?”

    Very nice photos, Stu! I particularly like the lone boat out in the calm water! It’s so peaceful, yet colourful. Jane

      I loved the scene when I first saw it. It was beautiful. I hoped that I could capture it serenity.

    Always a pleasure to see your art. It is thoughtful, reflective and just damn good.
