Cameron, who is on the injured list, has been moping around and was due for an interesting walk. But because of his ‘sports injury’, the usual mountain hikes were out. He’s a big fan of the intertidal zone though, so we headed out for a short beach walk. But I had forgotten it was the busiest weekend of the year. Fernwood Café was packed inside and out. There were cars on the side of the road, people walking on the road and people out on the Pier.
Five minutes down the beach, we met one person (knitting). Cameron reported there most excellent smells everywhere. And the photo above was our view. One person walking on the pier.
So, in the middle of a sunny afternoon on the busiest weekend of the year—not that crowded after all. Pretty good, even by Island standards.
It’s been a great two days of portrait shooting. Here’s the first finished GISPA performer image. The portraits will be printed and on display in the ArtSpring Theatre lobby at this year’s show. (April 19, 20, 21)
Performing Arts, including GISPA (the Gulf Islands School of Performing Arts) at Gulf Islands Secondary School is my business cause.
Just adding a day doesn’t quite tweak the calendar; it’s still off by a few minutes. So, “leap years occur in years divisible by four, except for those divisible by 100 and not divisible by 400. Confusing enough for you? In effect, that means that 97 out of every 400 years are leap years, including the century years 1600 and 2000 but NOT 1700, 1800 and 1900.”*
The image above is from a grade twelve student portrait set I did with Aina.**
