Island Images of the Night Sky


Life Behind Bars

Captivity is not pretty and my feelings are complex. It may not be a traveling circus but a Zoo still benefits from placing a living creature on display in often very small enclosures. It's often said that life expectancy is longer when under the care of humans so I can only hope that all Zoos treat these animals who now depend on humans with nothing less than a very high standard of respect.

This project is ongoing.

Flying With Snowbirds

I have a love and facination for aerial imagery, geography and the "big picture" of a landscape. This love extends to a love for flying and seeing the world from above.

I was very fortunate to have the opprotunity to see our Island from inside Jet #9 of The Canadian Forces (CF) Snowbirds, 431 Air Demonstration Squadron. A true honor I'll always be grateful for.
