Neighbourhood freight train

August 18th, 2018 — A freight train on the connecting tracks from Vancouver Harbour to Strathcona passes very close to a house in the 1000 block of East Pender Street. There are now six scheduled trains a day along the spur line that until 2017 had maybe that many in a year. CN said it reactivated the line to improve service to customers. Residents of the area are not happy with the change.

Smoke on the beach

August 13th, 2018 — A rescue boat from the Jericho Sailing Club inspects a boom of logs washed ashore on Locarno Beach. Smoke from forest fires obscures and adds strange colours to the view of freighters and the north shore mountains.

Long ferry wait

August 9th, 2018 — People at the Nanaimo ferry terminal were out of their cars looking anxiously towards the loading ramp and hoping a few more cars would get on the 3:30pm sailing from Departure Bay to Vancouver. A few did but not the people in the picture who had to wait in the 30 degree afternoon heat for the next sailing.

Art behind glass

circa 2008 and 2018 — I really don’t like galleries hanging photographs in a frame behind cheap glass. No one can see them with all the reflections so what’s the point. Cheap glass protects against coffee spills but not the important stuff like UV fading, so remove it. If it fades or gets damaged print another one; it’s a photograph.
