Vancouver Island Secrets
The 6 stereos you see here form a small representation of the different landscapes on Vancouver Island (Canada). The first is Kinsol Trestle, finished after the conclusion of WWI, which is one of the tallest wooden railway bridges in the world. Other views include sailboats docked near the Oak Bay Marina, the little summer pools of the Koksilah River, snow-covered trees atop the peak of Mount Washington, a selection of bright trees in Mystic Vale near my house, and a sunset snap of the southern beach of McNeill Bay. You probably won’t recognize any of these locations unless you’re an islander like me, but I’m proud to live in a place with such varied natural beauty! Come visit some time!

My stereo-hobby is quickly approaching its 3rd birthday, proving once again how time flies! I started taking stereo photos when I was living in Hamburg, Germany, and needed a personal interest to pass the time. Like many people I first encountered the stereo process thanks to Dr. Brian May, and since then I’ve met many wonderful photographers and artists! I mainly enjoy hyperstereos and photos that can demonstrate the grandiosity of my subjects. Having returned to Canada, my main focus has been the natural beauty and colour that surrounds me every day. Any time I’m on a hike or camping excursion I’m sure to snap a few pictures! It’s amazing how much you can do with a smartphone. My only equipment currently is my trusty, old, cracked Samsung Note 8… the camera is great and that’s all that matters! Sequential photos do have a limit, but there’s enough for me to work with for now!
