Buntzen lake is located in Port Moody BC. It is a great summer retreat away from the city without really going all that far. There is a hike around the lake that is about 8km long and is not too challenging. There is a beach half way around as well that is generally much quieter than the one closer to the park entrance.
The hike is a great way to spend a sunny day and taking a dip in the lake is very refreshing.
I have had an old Canon AE1 Program for the past 6 years or so. It was an impulsive ebay purchase that really marked my initial interest in photography. Despite this interest I really didn’t have the knowledge, dedication or funds to pursue with any real passion. This statement is exemplified through the images below. Over the past 5 years there has been a single roll of Fuji 200 film in the body and every year or so I would pick up the body and take a picture or two. Last week I finally finished the roll and took it in for developing. The following photos were taken with a camera manufactured in 1981 and film that was 4 years expired. The images are untouched.
Got to love the retro-feel of film though… sort of like listening to Dark Side of the Moon on Vinyl.
My latest endeavor took me all the way to the other side of the World. Over the span of three weeks I travelled down the west coast of Australia seeing as much as possible between Cape Tribulation and Sydney. Starting off in Cairns, I drove north through Daintree and up to Cape Tribulation. Following this, the drive took me South along the coast to Airlie Beach where a three day sailing trip was in order. Wow, if you you are ever in the area, spring the cash and go for a sail. It is worth every penny. Post sailing, I continued South to Brisbane where I spent a few days before venturing to the Gold Coast. From the Gold Coast, a bit of a short cut was in order so after flying to Sydney I finished off the trip in the city.
Between the beautiful beaches, incredible nature, wonderful cities and of course the people Australia is a magical place. Worth every second and every penny. As with my lack of writing style of the blog, let’s get the photos to tell the story. Which ones are your favorites? If you really like them, check out more in the complete flickr album.
