I’ve been using Flickr for school assignments, and have admittedly forgotten to upload some here. Whoops. Well, it may be a little behind, but here is a taste of spring in Victoria.
This Friday marks the end of my first semester in school for graphic design. Bet you though that would never happen! I finished my “One sheet of paper” project. I plan to add some projects to a portfolio during winter break, but for now, have these images. (These will be re-shot with better lighting when I have more than 5 minutes :)

Isn’t she pretty?
She’s a Giant Cypress W. I took her for a proper test ride today, almost all the way to the Johnson St bridge.
It was a sunny afternoon, perfect for a ride. I managed to stay upright, and even closed my mouth before hitting the cloud of gnats. (Ha) I may have given my lungs and knees a bit of a shock, but it was fun, even if I only went 7km round trip. Next time I’ll try to make it further. :)
Now I need to give her a name. How about Ellie?

Apparently I forgot I took these in April. Oops.
I know I haven’t been here in a while, but I’m in the middle of some potentially life-changing-for-the-better kind of stuff.
It’s kinda awesome.
Wish me luck.

Two weeks ago. Kinsol Trestle.
I decided to experiment with B&W a little. Which do you like better?

We had an excellent sunset as well.
Taken around Kamloops yesterday.

On the way back from our weekend in Parksville we saw: rain, sun, waves, beach, bears (4, including 2 cubs), deer (1), birds (lots), changing leaves, evergreens, and a really huge sitka spruce.
The longer scenic route is usually worth it.
