Great Blue Herons in B.C. are feeling the pressure of human population growth. Herons are very sensitive to activity near their nests, in particular early in the nesting season. Though they can get used to day-to-day human activity, novel noises (e.g. sudden blasts of horns or chain saws) can cause the birds leave their nests, making the young vulnerable to predators such as eagles. If the noise persists, it’s possible that colonies will abandon their site completely.

I had the opportunity to do the photography for the engagement celebration for two friends. It was a traditional Pakistani Muslim event. This is where the wedding date is announced and the engagement rings are exchanged. The ceremony begins with the groom arriving and then joined by the bride to be. Afterwards, friends and family personally greet them with their blessings. Speeches and songs are then sung in their honour. After the dinner, they play a game of dholki where the two groups on the groom and bride's sides challenge each other with more songs.

We all just enjoyed an amazing show from Mother Nature tonight. After weeks without rain, a thunderstorm resulted in a breathtaking sunset in Vancouver. The entire city was bathed in a warm orange glow. The lightning and thunder later on upstaged the fireworks we had. Amazing.

These look familiar... ;)

An editor at Re:Place Magazine had expressed his admiration of my photography a while ago and had been trying to get me to contribute some photos and an accompanying write-up for him to do a feature on me. When he recently inquired again if I was still interested, I said "yes". Since I am not working, I have some time to do all that. I really have to say that I appreciate his patience in waiting for me to finally give him something to use.

That site makes my images look great!
