Ah yes, the follies of youth they say.  Some things follow us our entire lives, and in some cases we aren’t quite sure even why.  We now continue our running photoblog series called the “Motor Gathering“, and in today’s post we check out a model of car that has been in my mind and imagination […]

It’s all in a name, they say, and in this case Four Acres of Rust says it all.  Our photography adventures find us exploring all sorts of wonderful spots here on Vancouver Island, and in doing so we meet the most incredible people.  In today’s post we are going to feature one of our favorite […]

Fisgard Lighthouse is a special place on the southern end of Vancouver Island, and is a place we like to visit as often as we can during the course of a year.  Its personality changes with the seasons and the weather, and the angles from which you can view it create fresh and distinct compositions.  […]

We’ve all heard about the Seven Wonders of the World, a list of places and things that are true marvels in every sense of the word.  Sometimes a wonder can actually be right in your own backyard, no matter if it lives on a list somewhere or not.  We have one such wonder of our […]

We’d like to introduce you to the newest member of the Toad Hollow Photography team today, “Bruce”.  Who’s Bruce, you may very well ask?  Bruce is a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone we recently acquired, giving us the ability to capture shots from a fresh, new perspective!  None of this would be possible without a […]

I really just can’t help it, I find rust to be visually delicious.  It’s got texture, it’s got character, it’s got years of stories hidden under that rich patina, stories that often remain secret and locked away forever.  When researching our trips up to Telegraph Cove at the northern end of Vancouver Island, it was […]

It’s not often at all that we come across a car that I’ve never heard of or seen before.  Every once in awhile, however, it does happen.  Such is the case with our encounter of a 1916 Franklin car we found one hot summers day as we were out enjoying the weather and landscapes of […]

The hands of time relentlessly tick forward, constantly turning the present into the past and creating history.  Sometimes this history is profound, and sometimes it is mundane.  Sometimes it lives in a place that was very remote, meaning it now lives in the minds and memories of only a few.  Jordan River is one such […]

It was the car show to end all car shows, the car show of a lifetime.  It was much more than we expected, and we expected an awful lot.  This year’s show was hosted at the brand new, state of the art facility, the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit, a world class track with world class […]

It has been five years since last we featured the incredible Kinsol Trestle here at The Hollow, and quite honestly I can’t think why.  This massive wood structure forms a very important part of our history, as is evidenced by the cost and effort the community has gone through to completely restore it.  At one […]
