Join us as we enjoy an elegant dinner with one of the founding families for the Greater Victoria area on Vancouver Island today. The Ross Bay Villa is one of the original homes in the city that nearly had a date with a demolition crew. TLC The Land Conservancy of BC came in to save this historic place and has spent more than 10 years in the active restoration and renewal process. The results are absolutely breathtaking. Today’s post finds us taking a detailed look at the Dining Room, which is furnished and decorated in antiques that are either originals or are period correct.

Our recent project working with TLC The Land Conservancy of BC has resulted in our ability to photograph the lovingly restored interior of Ross Bay Villa. This gorgeous old character home was saved from demolition by TLC who has since spent over 10 years working with their team of dedicated volunteers to restore this storied home. Today’s post finds us taking a close look at the completed Drawing Room.

As we continue to explore the wonderful Vette to Victoria 2012 weekend we attended recently, today’s post takes a close look at the Show ‘N Shine that occurred on Saturday. It was a beautiful day and we were very lucky to have a chance to attend and participate both as attendees and as club photographers. It was a real delight to see all these wonderful Corvettes in such a great setting and to meet folks from all over North America.

Recently I was in Chicago visiting a near and dear friend. I knew Chicago was a great city, and couldn’t wait to explore with my camera. One thing that was an absolute must, was getting to the Willis Tower. 103 floors, 1300 feet above the ground. I made sure that I arrived for sunset and stayed into the night. Chicago at night is beautiful. I was intrigued by the views. The straight lines of the city grid. The sparkling lights, the deep blacks. I caught this photo of the train yards. I stood there, thinking of the history of Chicago, and how much the yards have played key roles in the industrial/meatpacking/prohibition era history of the city.
