Random Seascapes...

i've been going through old photos lately, and collecting together my favorites of those that don't belong to any particular collection or outing.  There have been a few scenic photos especially from this last year that I feel are worthy to share.  Some may even make for great big ol' prints to go up on a wall or two.  (Let me know if you are interested!)  

I have enough that I've tried to break them down by theme, so to begin the first of a few photo posts, here are some random seascapes:

Like this one near Stanley Park:

And these two at Cresent Beach:

And also these two from White Rock:

 (This one is my fave.  It'll look really good printed big on canvas)

Also this one from Richmond:

Plus more!

So far, it's snowed everywhere but here this winter.  We live in Surrey, BC.  and we need some snow.  Soon.   Please.  I would really appreciate the snow.  Because then I can go back to doing things like this:    

Like making this guy in a pile at a Chucky E. Cheese parking lot.

Or this dead guy.

Or making this snow ant with farmer hat.

 Or carving this face into a ski slope.

I guess the point is, next time you fall down while skiing, take the time to carve something special into the slope, because people will wonder what you are doing and if you are OK.  And after all, isn't that what we really want?

From the archives... 
Years ago I tried making a little motion happen with frame-by-frame MS Paint drawings. I didn't have the heart to finish it, but I threw it up on YouTube today, because of the timeliness of it's political message.
