    I’m so inspired and excited by the amazing work accomplished by our students in Barkerville. And I love how you juxtapose the streets of Vancouver with the scenes of Ape Lake. Photography is such a great art form, allowing us to let our imagination go.

    Thanks for bringing back memories of the wonderful time in Barkerville. I loved every minute [except for my poor computer skills]. Thanks for printing my favorite image of the week. Joan

    Superb newsletter yet again, Chris. I am envious of the group who got to attend your latest workshop with Dennis. While I hope to join the two of you again on one of these excursions, I will never forget the inspiration that emerged from that workshop a few years ago. I find it interesting how you have explored multiple exposures and the impressionistic style since then. Doing much the same because of the images that the two of you post. Thanks. Chris

      Thanks Chris. I still remember the creative work you did on that workshop. I’m sure you are still making wonderful expressionistic images still. All the very best…Chris

    Wonderful Chris! I too love the juxtaposition of Vancouver images and Ape Lake. Though more tiring for you (!), the Vancouver buildings caught through your eyes are also inspiring — how you see what is there, that so many linear eyes would not see at all. I am also touched, due to my connection and history I have with Vancouver, the 3 Expressionism style images you created from the bike lane, walking lane and restaurant. All three of them touch into the feeling I have being there, when one’s own connection at a heart level to “place” is your dominant experience, rather than a static realistic picture. Bravo! Brilliant newsletter…

      Thank you kindly Brenda. I appreciate your historical connection to Vancouver. I actually found my two hour walk through the city to be quite inspiring and I thought of Fred Herzog throughout. There was a people fascination in Vancouver as opposed to the Nature fascination at Ape lake. Both exciting! Also, the transition from skyscraper viewing to seeing cyclists and pedestrians amidst trees and flowering plants had me changing my photographic style pretty quickly! Also very exciting! Thanks. Chris

    I always enjoy your newsletters, but this one was especially interesting. I found that the city pictures made me feel quite tense – not a fan of heights – even though I had lived in Vancouver for 25 years some time back. The photos of Ape Lake area, on the other hand, I found very relaxing. I enjoyed the softer focus of the city in the three more impressionistic photos. I especially liked your photos of Barkerville, taking me back to this summer when I visited my nephew and his family there, who operate the House Hotel Saloon. Love the pic of “Billy Barker”, and the one of the blacksmith. Looking forward to your next newsletter!
