#FriFotos: Earth Day

20 Apr

To be honest, I didn’t think I’d have enough material for this week’s Fri Fotos. I don’t work for a recognizable pro-environment company. I’m not one of those gung-ho enivronmental evangelists nor do I need to laud it over people’s heads. But I do what I can with what I’m aware of. (If that makes any grammatical sense whatsoever.)  My dad taught me to turn off the lights and he always used to chastise me about it and saving energy in that simple sense became a habit. Now when I see other people leave the lights on at unnecessary times, I get annoyed and always turn off the light. I recycle. I’m a good citizen. I won the environmental challenge in Grade 8. They even gave me a pretty certificate. Does this count?

But seriously, how in the h-e-to-double-hockey-sticks can I be a better traveler in that sense? Right now I don’t have the time to do a voluntourism type of vacation or take a few months to save the children in Africa. Sorry, not trying to sound sarcastic here but I would love to hear your tips. Here are a few photos I came up with.

Dear Beach Drive, Victoria BC

11 Aug

I was told to look out for you but I didn’t expect you to be such an unexpected discovery.  The cobalt blue of the ocean had me fixated.

As I wound my way along the curves of Beacon Hill Park, I reached you.  Runners, rollerbladers, walkers and photographers abound.  A bird swiftly flew out of this picture. The sign near the steps leading to an oasis upon the descension.   Continue reading
