Help Wanted!

I find myself ready to finally step up and make a purchase of a new DSLR Camera. My problem is that I am just not sure what make and model I should buy.So that said any suggestions? I want a Camera that is versatile, so I can take portrait shots as well as landscape, and micro, and I want the camera to also have HDR capabilities. I have enough money to purchase pretty much anything so I’m just looking to get some advice and guidance from my redbubble friends as I know many of you have some experience with the DSLR Cameras on the market today.So any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I’m goiing shopping later this morning!

WHY IS REDBUBLE OPENING THIS SITE FOR SHARING?

I don’t know how you all feel about the fact that this site is now open to sharing your work across the internet through facebook, twitter, and other sites, but I for one am not the least bit impressed by this new move!This site was somewhat secure against copyright infringement and although not perfect at least we had some protection. Now just anyone can take our work and share it across the worldwide web without our permission or even our knowledge! Your work is no longer protected, and it pretty much makes it worthless, as anyone can steal it and use it for whatever purposes they have in mind.I am not impressed with this latest move and If it is not shut down immediately and removed from this site I intend to remove my portfolio and will no longer be a member of the redbubble site. It…

Thank-you!

I’d just like to take a moment to thank the person who just purchased two greeting cards of S.S. Sicamous from my portfolio. i must say I was very surprised to see the notice in my emails this morning. Thank you so much!

Gone For While

Hi everyone. Just a short note to let you all know I won’t be online for a few days as I am going away on Vacation. My plans are to head to Vancouver this evening and then catch the Ferry over to Vancouver Island for a few days. I have lived in British Columbia for over 40 Years now and have never been to the Island so I figured it’s about time I went. I plan to head to Port Alberni, then on to Long Beach as It is supposed to be very beautiful there and I do love the ocean.
I may even go out on a charter and see if I can catch a salmon or two to bring home. I will spend lot’s of time taking photographs and exploring the island, just relaxing. I’ll be back next weekend. Have a great week everyone and I’ll upload some pictures of my trip when I get back. I so need this break.

Great News!

Thanks to everyone who has been keeping us in their thoughts and prayers of late due to the forest fire situation here in B.C.
God really does answer prayer if we have faith.
We finally got a change in the weather and it rained heavily, in fact breaking a lot of rainfall records for a 24 hour period all over the province. All the fires have been brought under control and everyone who was evacuated has been able to return home.
There was 53mm of rain over Terrace Mountain in a 24 hour period and more rain fell yesterday so that situation is pretty much over. There was one pilot injured when his plane crashed into Okanagan Lake but he will be okay.
The rain really helped in the Litton area as well, and everyone there has been allowed to return home as well. There was a fatality however…

FIRE FIRE FIRE

Just to let you all know , we once again have found ourselves in the midst of a very bad forest fire situation. We presently have three fires burning and have lost a number of homes and out buildings in West Kelowna on the west side of Okanagan Lake. That fire is a bad one and 17,000 people have had to be evacuated.
There is a second fire burning further north by Fintry Estates that is also out of control but is not an immediate threat to any homes right now.
Just to make matters worse a fire has just started at the end of Hall road where my parents live only a couple of blocks away so I may have to leave at any moment to go help them evacuate.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. It is just so so dry here this summer and very hot. There have been no injuries thus, far but …
