A Jolt of Joy

I get a jolt of joy each time I find something to capture digitally. These are just a few of the special moments I’ve had since April while traveling through Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Vancouver Island and British Columbia. Natural wonders, endless oceans, majestic mountains, urban excitement and rural quietude.

Creative artists capture local culture. Seattle has its Blown Glass and Scandinavian Art Museums; Vancouver has its happy faces; Salt Spring Island wooden sculpture oversees the Ganges Marina.

Transitions evolve through time. I’m slowly beginning to understand the Western mentality of celebrating life daily in all its glory. As the journey continues, there will be more to show. I can hardly wait for the next glowing vista.
