Yearn to Wander
A Sunny, Sunny Birdwalk
After a walk through the fog last week, the sun was welcome. It seemed like the first day of Spring, albeit a bit early, as we looked for birds along the Georgia Strait and Little Qualicum Estuary. The biggest treat was a flock of Trumpter Swans milling just off the shore.

Greeetings from Vancouver Island
Snow greeted us here, but melted as quickly as it came. Now clouds, rain, and intermittent sun rule the days. But nature doesn't seem to mind, and those sunny days with the low angles make photography fun, especially when a resident River Otter bids us hello.
Chicago, A Different Kind of January
January in Chicago? Sunshine and jackets ... what a pleasant place to go architecture hunting again. After weeks of enjoying London's new collection, Chicago seemed different. A couple new ones: Aqua Tower and Trump Tower, a few old favorites, plus Marilyn bigger than life, change Chicago's look, too.
Then winter came. We enjoyed the snow this time, especially a walk in Harms Woods.
A Taste of London's Architecture
London's built environment is world renowned: Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral et al. But they have lots of company now, especially in the City.
