oh yeah, i was in bc a couple weeks ago…

not surprisingly, grad school has taken over my life. I all but forgot about my photos until last night. This is because this is the sort of stuff filling my brain now:

… but the startling juxtapositions in a brief roll call like this conjure up a sense of political and intellectual ebullition that is, I think, unprecedented. It is out of the fusion between these two narratives that the discourse I have in mind is generated…

This is from geographical imaginations by Derek Gregory. Much of my time will now be occupied with translating pompous and often over written academic text into concise understandable sentences (note, i don’t think this clip is particularly pompous, or over written. it just happens to be what i am reading at the moment). Yup. Reading theory makes me love those few authors who appreciate brevity.

Anyway, i will quit my belly aching (because really i am rather happy to be where i am, not to mention outrageously fortunate) and post some photos…

these photos chronicle the travel from mainland to island… minus the cathedral grove shots. those deserve their own post.

the ferry was fairly novel on the way out to the island. which is why i took so many photos. on the way home a week later i hardly pulled my camera out of my bag. i think this is common on “the way home” portion of a trip. the novelty has worn off, the beauty and interest of the surroundings comes second to the desire to be finished travelling and be home (if you only to use your own toilet again)

random red things often attract my attention

and blue things too

we were entertained by this sign. i find the gaping mouth and  randomly black palm to be curious

more feet first travel photos. the island is in the distance there

The only non ferry, non cathedral grove travelling photo that survived – from the restaurant we stopped at in port alberni (the clam bucket i think). it was yummy
