A very large orange punpkin with "Saanich Peninsula Movers" printed beside the stem in black is being weighed on a large scale outside. There is a crown watching, and the man doing the weighing is in jean overalls and a red cap.

A close up of the front tire of a parked bike without a rider. It is parked on a sidewalk and the sky behind it is blue with white fluffy clouds. There are out of focus shops in the distance.

Nice Ride and Future Red Barn

Nice ride spotted at the corner of Amphion and Oak Bay Ave. You can also see a future location of the Red Barn in the background! We’re excited!

In the foreground is a clump of orange blooming flowers with tall green stems interspersed between them. The flowers are in focus. The background is out of focus and is a body of water with a blurry downtown and trees on the other side.

Light & Flora

Great light at Victoria Harbour right now!

A soccer field at dusk with rectangular buildings in the distance. The sun is setting so the horizon still has some sun but the upper part of the sky is dusky blue, and there is a skydiver with their parachute pulled descending from the upper left.

How Do You Get To School?

Here’s a throwback to a UVic Vikes women’s soccer game last fall, when skydivers opened the game with this spectacular midfield landing. School is starting soon. How are you arriving? Photo taken on unceded Lkwungen Territory.

Two different art works side by side. On the left is a black and white painting of a woman's head, shoulders, and chest. She has her hair in a large bun atop her head, and round thin glasses. Her left hand is visible coming up to brush her chin. Past her neck is a long sleeved black shirt that is done with water colour so it has a blurred, dripping aesthetic. On the right is an abstract piece with blues, pinks, black, and a mustard yellow strip on the right. It is done in water colour, and all the colours blur and drip together. It is painted on a white canvas.

August is over and the vibrant art of Sam Eldridge is no longer up at Discovery. Thanks, Sam, for adding some extra zip to our morning coffees!
