September 25th, 2019 — A second world war army truck abandoned on the Baden Powell Trail just above Millstream Road, West Vancouver. It’s probably left over from when Hollyburn Ridge, as it was then called, was logged in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s. The Baden Powell Trail used to be known as Skid Road Trail.

October 6th, 2019 — A quick game of cricket on UBC’s east mall, once trees and grass, is now played on concrete and resembles an inner city basketball game. Construction on the campus has turned what was many years ago a leafy, grassy, comfortable university into a downtown metropolis with architecture similar in style to 1950’s Moscow. University people profess to be green, to believe in global warming, but they cut down trees and pave lawns as fast as a gyppo logging outfit.
Through Blurb books I’ve published a book of my pictures taken at oldtimer races, mostly in BC but also at the tracks in Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, and Alberta. It’s a nice book but expensive because it’s printed one at a time. You do, however, get it at cost as there’s no markup in the price for me. You can browse through the book HERE or you can scroll through the pictures in the book HERE. If you’re in one of the pictures and would like a copy for your iPhone just right click and download it, no charge. (Above is Tiger Wingert (16), Agassiz, BC. June 2010)
