As we continue to work on our personal projects here at Toad Hollow, we find that some of these projects leave us with a distinct sense of the profound.  This is especially true in regard to our project we refer to as “The Anglican Church Project“.  This exciting undertaking finds us visiting all of the […]

As we continue our long-running photography project dubbed “The Anglican Church Project” here on Vancouver Island, we find ourselves visiting parishes all over the island and the surrounding Gulf Islands photographing the buildings and their surroundings.  Each church is unique and does a wonderful job of representing the local community they serve.  Each one exhibits […]

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 […]

We were recently assigned a visit to St. George’s Anglican Church located in the heart of Cadboro Bay, a tiny community in the city of Victoria, British Columbia here on Vancouver Island.  The Cadboro Bay community is a wonderful place to visit as it sits by the ocean.  Here you will find delightful landscapes and […]

We are avid fans of great architecture, particularly architecture from years past that has left an indelible mark on the community it lives in.  We find that when you enjoy these buildings from the outside frequently you are left wondering what they look like inside.  And in many cases what you find is not what […]

As we continue to work on our long-term project documenting all the Anglican churches in the Anglican Diocese of BC, we are finding that this project is much more than simply photographing all the lovely facilities. It’s also a personal journey of discovery for us. There are most certainly commonalities amongst the various facilities, but […]

As the car slowly snaked its way down the narrow road, we were almost afraid to exhale. We had been down this road countless times, full of misplaced hope and wonder, only to be met with crushing disappointment.
