    Best! Newsletter! Ever!
    You outdid yourself on this August issue, Chris. The Barkerville Impressionism image was the most compelling, but every shot was unique and equally creative.
    Great Job!

    (My wife & I stopped by your gallery about ten years ago and picked up a copy of your hot-off-the-press Bowron guidebook on our way up to that glorious place and have been fans ever since. We recruited our daughter into that cohort and I expect she will make the circuit herself some day.)

    Hi Chris…the Barkerville streetscape catches my eye! Mike

      Thanks Michael. B’ville is always a great place to visit.

  5. I was stunned by your comment about Barkerville and the impressionist period(It opened a window for me). On the wall at the St. George is a painting of Paris from that moment, and to see the mood and emotion recreated in Barkerville was exceptional. Weaving landscape and history(both geologic and human) together may be a key to our mutual excitement for life. I’m even more excited for the upcoming workshop we’ll be helping you host.

      Thanks Dave, you have me more pumped than ever to get back there and run this workshop with you (our host) as well! That was a ‘light bulb’ moment for me; I can’t wait to make more impressionist like images; weaving that narrative of geological and cultural history…wow!!! I look forward to seeing that painting on the wall too. See ya soon Dave. Chris

    You are truly a gift to the world Chris, and fortunate, as I, in having a partner that supports you no matter what. Lois says she sticks around, because she never knows what I am up to next. 🙂
    See you soon in Barkerville. David

    I feel so lucky to be among the 10 in the Barkerville workshop. Your work inspires me so much. Whenever I read your newsletters I am immediately energized. In fact, as soon as I read this last one, I got up from the computer, grabbed my camera, and gave creativity a try in my house!
    See you soon.

    Wow…Joan, you are the best!! Did you jump up and down or swirl around in a circle as you made your creative ‘in house’ masterpiece?? I look forward to seeing you soon. Safe travels. Chris

    Betty & I were just travelling in Scotland and your photos remind us of what a beautiful Country we have right here at home. Enjoy you making it possible to see new visions of our home through your Camera’s Eye (Lens).

    Great to hear from you Betty and Ron. Yes, it’s hard to grasp what we have here, but there are also many other wonderful places…like Scotland! Continued health and happiness. Chris
