One Hundred and Seventy Five. #umbrellalostalone
From the original Vancouver Lost Umbrella series, now at 175 specimens strong (including this ugly sob in the dark night)!
I started collecting dead umbrellas years before Instagram was invented on #35mm film, the project has since evolved to be mostly mobile & digital snaps in the last few years. Full set on Flickr (link in bio) and under my hashtag #umbrellalostalone - thx for following along all this time. Many more to come!

Chilliwack Lake and surrounding peaks are mighty fine in the early spring. If you look closely you will spot @castleofthesea getting reflective, too.

30 years ago this month four musicians entered Fort Apache studios in Boston and cut 17 songs that would soon change music forever. The first of these songs announced the arrival of the Pixies on a mini-LP called Come on Pilgrim - 8 scorching, punky, noisey blasts of dynamic melody, surreal lyrics partly sung in Spanish and partly yelped in English. The music became a template for indie rock, and now it's hard not to hear a Pixies influence in any modern rock that came out in the late 80s & 90s, heck 00s.... For me they are the band that changed everything. Come on Pilgrim w/ Surfer Rosa is absolutely one of my 'best evers' . Here's a #sundaysides tribute to Come On Pilgrim, still fresh at 30 years old. Thanks weirdos!

To keep it fair amongst the sisters, here's Countess going wacky in the bathroom. Hilarious little critters, they're so much fun.

The subtle glacial hue of Kinney Lake, from higher up on the Berg Lake trail.
Mount Robson, BC.

The magnificence of Robson, the splendor of the Rockies. The cliffs above Whitehorn camp, just to the left in my previous post.

It's #worldwaterday and I can't help but think of this place, the Berg Lake trail at Mount Robson. So much water everywhere it's in fact a rainforest microclimate hundreds of km from where you'd expect one. Once you make it past Kinney Lake on the approach, the deep rumble of tumbling water creeps into your ears and body. A few hundred meters further and the rumble becomes a roar as you enter the Valley of a Thousand Falls. Everywhere you look, water is pouring off cliffs and down the mountains. You can feel the power of the water as it rushes past, above and below you. The roar does not subside in these parts, it's absolutely incredible to 'tune in' .
This is the view from Whitehorn camp, along the Robson River, a good stop on your way up. Living near the mouth of the Fraser River in Vancouver it's cool to know the headwaters of our mighty Fraser are right up here near Robson Provincial Park.

"The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness." - John Muir
Wise quote from an inspirational man, and I must agree! For #internationalforestday I'm posting an impressionistic photograph of mine titled "Spirit They're Gone" . This is available as a limited edition fine art print so please get in touch if interested. An edition has been exhibited at PhotoHaus gallery in 2010. Taken in the forest close to home, it's an image to gaze into and transport yourself when you can't make it to the woods that day.
