Spring is finally here after a long wintery slumber and with it comes sweet-smelling blossoms, warm wispy breezes and the beginning of my favourite time of year, wedding season!  Just like each new bud, hope is blossoming all around us.  Hope for a kinder world, hope for more love and laughter, hope for a healthier […]

With summer just around the corner this year, it would appear to be time for all the collectors and enthusiasts out there to take their beloved cars, trucks and motorcycles out of hibernation to stroll the streets once again.  This makes summer one of our very favorite times of the year.  The only thing better […]

If you have been a visitor to our blog in the past, you know very well just how much we love our little island.  We revel in traveling up and down the highways and byways just to see what we can catch with our lens.  Today we are taking you to a very familiar place […]

Here at the Hollow, there are few things we enjoy more than tossing a Canon in the back of the Volt and seeing how far we can get on battery power.  We sometimes embarrassingly find ourselves “high-fiving” at a passing gas station, but for the sake of leaving “range” issues in the rear view mirror […]

It’s baffling to me how some people seem to walk through life without ever really seeing what’s right in front of them.  One of the best things about taking a camera with you is that it forces you to slow down a little and look.  And like most good adventures, it’s the little unexpected surprizes […]

One of our favourite yearly festivals in the Cowichan Valley is The Medieval Days & Knights, one of the many events and demonstrations that happen at the Pacific Northwest Raptor Centre.  Nestled off the beaten path just a few kilometers from the main highway, it is a magical place where unlikely friendships occur.

We often hear the expression “if only these walls could talk” when we explore and photograph the myriad heritage buildings that cross our paths here at Toad Hollow.  Many times when we visit a place like this we have a deep and personal experience as we strive to connect with the rich history that the […]

Our love for cars here at Toad Hollow is far from a secret, and we really enjoy expressing this in our photography.  Some projects take longer to schedule and complete than others do, and often this results in great photographs that reflect a personal experience.  We find this to be true in the case of […]

It’s hard to not become nostalgic when you see one of the classics on the road these days.  As time moves along these sightings are becoming more rare and in many ways seeing one at the local car show or at the drive-in is about the same thing as seeing a unicorn.  So you can […]
