Rose Harbour Endings

The last day of my time aboard the Passing Cloud we ended up in the anchorage at Rose Harbour, on the north shore of Kunghit Island. This is located on the south side of Houston Stewart Channel which divides Moresby and Kunghit Islands. Rose Harbour (map link) was a whaling station during the last century and a large piece of…

Around Kunghit Island

  Near the end of my time aboard the Passing Cloud we circumnavigated Kunghit Island (map link) which is a large island at the very south end of Gwaii Haanas. This roll of film includes shots from Heater Harbour on the north-east side (map link) views of Hecate Strait to the east of Kunghit Island and an excursion on…

Around Juan Perez Sound

As you are seeing in recent posts, I made several visits to the Juan Perez Sound area this past summer while cruising aboard the Passing Cloud in Gwaii Haanas. This roll of film includes shots from De La Beche Inlet (map link) at the western edge of Juan Perez Sound, another visit to Hotspring Island (map link) which is…

South into Gwaii Haanas

    My summer Haida Gwaii trip aboard the Passing Cloud included several passes through the Juan Perez Sound area that lies at the center of the east coast of Gwaii Haanas. Over the past two decades I have spent many months in this area, walking the shores recording and testing archaeological sites. It is always a pleasure…

Cumshewa Inlet

  While on last summer’s Haida Gwaii trip aboard the Passing Cloud we had a layover between cruises and groups of passengers. The photos on this roll are taken on the trip down Cumshewa Inlet and mostly in Gordon Cove at the west end of the inlet 30km from Hecate Strait. It was very calm, with terrific light in the…

Windy Bay and Anna Inlet

      My summer Haida Gwaii trip aboard the Passing Cloud took me to Windy Bay and Anna Inlet a couple of times. This roll of film is shot mostly at Windy Bay with some in-transit time and in the anchorage at Anna Inlet. Hlk’yah GawGa (or Windy Bay) has a Watchman’s cabin, as do several…

Gwaii Haanas North

    My summer Haida Gwaii trip aboard the Passing Cloud continues with images from the northern end of Gwaii Haanas. Others in this series on 52Rolls can be seen with this link. You can also find many more images from this trip shot with digital cameras on my blog (here). None of the digital ones have such…

Into Gwaii Haanas

As I explained in my recent post Sandspit – Haida Gwaii I spent time working on a schooner in Haida Gwaii last summer. This roll of film documents the ride from Sandspit down to Gwaii Haanas in a De Havilland Beaver float plane, and then a few days of cruising aboard the Passing Cloud. See this link for…

Sandspit – Haida Gwaii

One of my trips this past summer was to Haida Gwaii (formerly the Queen Charlotte Islands). My trip took me to work for several weeks as an on-board expert on a cruise. The vessel was the Passing Cloud, a schooner that spends part of each year in the Gwaii Haanas national park at the south…

Long Time No See

        Or more accurately, Long Time No Post. Since I last posted my Roll 18 in April I have been working out of town quite a bit, busy with work at home and otherwise occupied. That doesn’t mean I have not been shooting film, and usually shooting at least a roll per…

Concert With Point and Shoot

  At the end of last month I attended a concert that was to raise funds for the youth music program in Port Renfrew. Port Renfrew is a couple of hours from Victoria on the southwest coast of Vancouver Island. I went because my son was (a) playing and (b) teaches in the music program. I did…

Recording Studio

  My 2016 52 Rolls project seems to be taking a form much like last year’s. Shooting with specific cameras that suit a need and which I am familiar with mixed with new finds from thrift stores and similar places. This past week in one store I bought three point and shoot zooms, all with…
