The world is a strange place, and it seems to be getting stranger by the day at times.  Things we never would have even considered a decade or two ago are coming true today.  Some of these things feel as if they are scripts for a TV show or a movie, yet when you take […]

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 […]

It’s really hard to believe that July is here already!  With summer just around the corner in Canada, it’s time to start planning for visits to our local car shows.  The weather is getting nice on Vancouver Island, and with it comes a bevy of sightings of classic and custom cars, trucks and motorcycles.  In […]

A garage door slowly opens as the first birds of spring sing in the trees and the buds begin to burst with the signs of good weather.  The silence is abruptly broken by the sound of a small block V8 firing to life.  The birds scatter and everyone in earshot strains to see where the […]

Francis Mawson Rattenbury was a true character, one who left his indelible mark on our city’s landscapes even though his time spent on the west coast of Canada was mired in controversy.  Eventually leaving BC to start a new life with his new wife, his demise was both shocking and unexpected as he was found […]

It’s been a rough winter for many folks in the US and Canada this year.  We’ve thankfully somehow avoided all this out here on the west coast, having had a relatively mild winter with almost no snow on Vancouver Island (south) that I can recall.  With March in full swing now, the flowers are beginning […]

There are as many variations of custom cars as there are enthusiasts who design and build them.  I think that’s one of the best parts about being a “car guy”, there’s always something out there to tickle your fancy no matter what your preference or taste is.  Now that summer is just a fleeting thought […]

Some items we have a chance to photograph have a life of their own.  The stories of those who once owned them are forever imprinted in their fabric, and if you listen closely you can learn a little of the person and the times they came from.  In today’s post we are continuing a new […]
