It’s pretty impressive just how much Ethan and I packed into our three day sojourn to and from the Okanagan. It helps that the list of things to do in a relatively small area is pretty impressive: wineries, orchards, farms, small producers… As we were told while we were there, you hear a lot about […]
After giving you the tour of our first day in the Okanagan, it was high time to reappear with day two. Day two was our only full day in the area and we packed as much in as we could. We started out the day at the Okanagan Lavender Herb farm. If you love lavender, […]
The Okanagan Valley is a special place in BC – I think it has a little bit of magic surrounding it. In summer and early fall, it becomes the fruit basket and wine glass of Canada. Orchards, and vineyards as far as the eye can see – dotting the shores of Okanagan Lake, home of […]
Food Photography Notes I’m not going to give a blow by blow because it is Wordless Wednesday but, I’ve been playing with some Florabella Actions in Photoshop for these image (except the top one – that was all done in LR). I started in LR, did a quick export to Photoshop, ran the actions and […]

I kind of liked doing Wordless Wednesdays the last few weeks and even though I seem to be shifting out of my funk, I thought I’d keep doing them. It lets me share photos that might not be about food. This week, in the spirit of summer fair season coming and the notice that the […]
Even though I feel like I’m slowly getting my writing groove back, I find I kind of like doing these Wordless Wednesday posts. So I think I might keep doing them. It’s a nice way to share photos. Today’s are from the new Chef’s Tasting Menu at Vancouver’s Mosaic at the Hyatt. It’s running from […]
