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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

Enchantment comes in many forms, it can be found in the mundane and it can be found in the magical.  There is a spot on Vancouver Island called Fairy Lake, just outside of Port Renfrew on the west coast that has such magic.  In it is a tree unlike any other I have ever seen, […]
