I’m Doing the Best I Can

Branded as the biggest thing David Suzuki has ever done, the Blue Dot Tour is quite likely David’s last cross-country project in one final effort to encourage change. Now 78, Suzuki’s message to his grandchildren is: “I’m doing the best I can”.

On Sept 29th 2014, the tour stopped in PEI with a clear and emotional message to encourage change. A change to ensure Canadians have a clean environment to live. And a change in laws at all levels of government to force responsible development. If we completely depend on clean air, clean water and clean food… why do we not value it as our top priority?

While the tour was in PEI, I offered my time and camera as part of the volunteer team.

Covering a quickly progressing live event can be much more challenging when accustomed to carefully setting up a single landscape image on a tripod. The following was one of those times. Happy Halloween.

Atlantic Canada Air Show 2012

A couple weeks ago, the Atlantic Canada International Air Show returned to Prince Edward Island for a two day display of ground and air performances headlined by the US Navy Blue Angels and the RCAF Snowbirds — one of only two shows to feature both in 2012. My small obsession for flying had me camped out at the Slemon Park Airfield for the full weekend. Maybe my love for flying, aerials and mapping software accounts for why I approach my landscape photographs often with a very wide angle looking for the big picture scene.

Gold Cup and Saucer Race

The sounds of snapping whips and loud cheering crowds filled the air to a full house at the Red Shores Racetrack and Casino Saturday night to end a full week of harness racing.

Crowds gather at the Charlottetown Driving Park for the 53rd edition of the Gold Cup and Saucer Race. Regardless of what you think of the sport, it continues to hold it’s popularity. At least for me, I brace myself for each and every lap praying not to witness a deadly accident.

The following are some more images from the past few years.

Atlantic Canada International Air Show

Last year, PEI enjoyed the return of an Air Show to Slemon Park, Summerside and although mother nature forced a cancellation on Sundays activities, Saturday surely did not disappoint with several high adrenaline performances of death defying stunts. With the United States Navy Blue Angels headlining the show this year, every aviation fan will want to be in Summerside August 26th. The Air Show Atlantic Insider members already have their tickets and general tickets go on sale this Monday, July 9th at airshowatlantic.ca.
