International Education Video

Gulf Islands International Program Video

Just released: a promotional piece for the International Education program in the Gulf Islands School District. Produced with former GISS student and now Vancouver videographer, Eric Peterson. There’s a nice look at the area, the school (GISS), and the kids; and about 160 of my photos. About 3 and one half minutes.

High School Student Joins In

Salt Spring Market, August long weekend

It was great to see a Gulf Islands Secondary student just walk up and seamlessly join this high-powered group. Within minutes they had the entire market walkway blocked. Lots of toe-tapping and shutter snapping. Such a Saltspring moment.

*thanks to Ben for making room at his Saltspring Fruitsicle stand so I could see!

Another ‘day trip’ photo from Vancouver

Brazillian graffiti artist twins, Gustavo and Otavio Pandolfo, have transformed the huge silos at Ocean Concrete in Vancouver’s Granville Island into a 360 degree, 23 metre tall ‘mural’.

The Granville Island area attracts over 10 million visitors a year, including me. It’s good to get off ‘the rock’ (Salt Spring) occasionally to see the world…
