It has been a wonderful summer here on Vancouver Island this year, with weather the likes I haven’t seen in many years.  These are the perfect conditions for a car show, and when they come to town you can most certainly expect to find us wandering about the venue checking out all the awesome rides […]

Ask someone what makes the Cowichan Valley so special and you will likely get a very long list of answers.  But one thing is for certain, there is no place quite like it.  Nestled between the bustling cities of Victoria and Nanaimo, the pristine coastline, towering cedars, sparkling lakes and rivers, and mountains that seemingly […]

With spring finally here and summer just around the corner, it’s time to once again start planning our visits to the local car shows that seem to spring up on Vancouver Island, from the northern tip, to the big city of Victoria in the south.  In today’s post we’re heading back to the “Warmlands Show […]

Time seems to have a funny way of always running forward.  You can imagine my surprise the other day when I was going through some of the pictures I have here waiting to be processed to find an entire set of images captured at the Duncan Antique Truck Show in the summer of 2013 at […]

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 […]

Have you ever seen the largest raptor in North America?  Have you seen it up close?  Better yet, have you seen it fly just inches over your head?  If not for the terrific people who operate The Raptors here in the Cowichan Valley, these experiences would never be possible. We’ve now visited twice, and each […]

Art is all about interpretation.  And when it comes to personal expression, there is no art like that of the car and motorcycle enthusiast.  Given my rather feisty reputation behind the bars of a bike like this I likely will never pilot one personally, but they still make me stop in my tracks instantly when […]

Buckets come in all sorts of sizes, shapes, many with different intended uses.  Hands-down, the coolest bucket that I know of has to be of the Ford T-Bucket variety.  These highly modified cars tend to only loosely resemble the original car that motivated their creation, and they all stand out as unique and personal expressions […]
