One of the reasons we love to stroll around the local car shows in the summer is how we get to meet some of the neatest folks who are very passionate about their personal vehicle.  This love and passion almost always comes shining through in the car on display, even if it’s not in perfect […]

Churches are much more than just the materials used to create them, they are important parts of our communities and take on a deeper meaning for the welfare of the people they serve.  As we begin our latest photography project working with the Anglican Diocese of BC, we are invited to visit and immerse ourselves […]

These posts are way too easy for me to write.  For those who know me, my deep deep love for classic muscle cars is no secret, and now that I am armed with a quality camera you can almost always find us at some car show over the summer trying to fill up memory cards […]

We’re heading back to The Motorcar Gathering 2012 held at the Queen Alexandra Hospital here in Victoria last year in today’s post, continuing our running photoblog series “The Toads At The Gathering“.  We’re going to learn a little bit more about me on a personal level today as I share a story about a car […]

Growing up I wanted to be lot’s of different things; a cowboy, a lawyer, a rock star…  but never really gave much thought to being a school bus driver.  We’ve all seen the reports of ill-behaved children and all the problems they can cause for the bus driver, and quite honestly this notion never really […]

It’s time again to rustle your hair in the wind as we head back to the 2012 “Vette to Victoria” event hosted by the Victoria Corvette Club last year.  It was a real highlight of our year to have a chance to join in on the fun over the long weekend as people from all […]

Most everyone has heard of the fabled Studebaker car company and the exquisite cars they designed and built in the mid-century.  And many know that this brand is long gone today.  What isn’t widely known is what happened immediately after the main plant in South Bend rolled the last car off the assembly line and […]

Car shows are a great way to spend an afternoon, giving you a chance to see vehicles you wouldn’t see otherwise and to meet the proud owners and make new friends.  You just never know what you’ll find at your local car show.  In the summer of 2012, Mrs. Toad and I stepped out and […]

It’s an almost magical place that can capture the imagination of those who visit.  Especially if you’re a Toad who loves antique heavy duty equipment.  You could seriously get lost in here for hours on end and come back the very next day and start all over discovering the most amazing things. We’re visiting the […]
