Simon’s forest

In photography by webmeister Bud

All quiet except for the occasional plane flying overhead. Every three freaking minutes. I’ve spent many hours in and around this wonderful forest, acting with friend Simon for his latest independent film, The Mango Chronicles: Oob-Tastic! It premieres at 8:00 pm next Friday, April 28, 2006 at Claremont Secondary School‘s Ridge Playhouse. Admission to see this wonderfully unique sci-fi comedy …

treefall

In photography by webmeister Bud

Lotsa rain + more rain = soft ground. Soft ground + lotsa wind = treefall at UVic. A bonus Friday photo ’cause, damn, was it ever some crazy kind of blustery this week. Thanks to Steph for the heads up on this one. =)

In photography by webmeister Bud

The sun reflects off the surface of Swan Lake, covered in its thin layer of I’m-not-really-sure-what. I don’t think it was algae bloom, ’cause an algae bloom’s supposed to be slimy and gross, right?

This cloud was all alone in its patch of sky, just …

cloudfire

In photography by webmeister Bud

Sunbeams break through the clouds in the distance, while the rest of the sky remains extra-dark. This is the last photo for February.  It’s not the most conventional month for a launch, but February’s been good for me.  My very first job, a paper route I had when I was 14, began on February 1.  Exactly ten years later, my …

second snow

In photography by webmeister Bud

During the second snowfall of 2004, the usual ambience of this parking area was enhanced by the snow. Welcome to the new happydesigns.com, version 2.0. Please feel free to share your thoughts.  Hopefully, the positive or constructive ones. Just the other day, I was asked how many digital photos I’d taken since making the leap to digital only sixteen months …
