The Old City Quarter

A trip into the Old City Quarter of Nanaimo, BC, Canada on Vancouver Island produced a new series of images that showcase this magical district.  Full of history and heritage, this area has some wonderful architecture which will all be the subject of an upcoming shoot we have planned.  Please feel free to visit our blog “The Old City Quarter” to see all 4 new HDR images and to read the story behind them.

Chapel of the Holy Cross

During my day trip to Sedona Arizona over the weekend I spent a fair amount of time at the ever popular Chapel of the Holy Cross. Sure, I know it’s a touristy spot, but the architecture is pretty neat and the view from there is real sweet. I wasn’t there early enough to avoid the crowds so I just included the people in this image. I hadn’t noticed at the time that there were 3 groups of people having their pictures taken.

Rocky Hill Hook & Ladder


From the web site:

Although a fire company existed in Rocky Hill long before 1902 the first written record describes the formation of the Rocky Hill Hook and Ladder Co. #1 by William Stults. In late June 1902 these first firemen placed an order for a hand-drawn Seagraves Hook and Ladder truck costing $370.00. On August 15, 1902, the Rocky Hill Hook and Ladder Company #1 was incorporated and for many years served the area between Hopewell, Princeton and New Brunswick.
