Dale Schulz - Nanaimo- "As He Sees It" - May 26/16

Lifelong Nanaimo resident, professional artist and illustrator Dale Schulz 'sees' much of Nanaimo many of us simply walk by without giving a second thought.

Through the eyes of an artist the everyday can become almost magical and with a few simple photos of his daily walks, Dale captures and shares some of that magic on his Facebook page.

The following is the most recent example of what Dale sees when he walks about our lovely seaside community many of us just take for granted.

Dale's Post - May 26/16

Here are photos from today - a BUNCH of them - and one shot from yesterday to start with. I was still suffering from a headache yesterday so I didn't shoot much - got a shot of the 'Book Nook' on Short Avenue though.

Today we crossed the Cat stream and turned right on Railway Avenue and shot some Roses and a purple-flowered hedge. On 7th we turned towards town after I shot a favourite shed. I also took a picture of the E&N Rail line at 7th and View Street. On Victoria Road I got a picture of a nice red rose.

On Strickland Street I shot a set of leaves on a tree. There were some Canada Geese in the Boat Basin - I took their picture - then Indy and I stopped for coffee before heading to Maffeo Sutton Park.
There I shot a partially painted bench leg; the new piece of artwork on the bridge over Swy-a-lana Lagoon; the Newcastle Island ferry; and two more pieces of art - 'Cerebrum Digitalis', and 'The Hug'. As we walked back along the waterfront I stopped to chat with Rodney Davis - a local musician - I like the Maraca taped to his boot!

We walked up through the Old City Quarter on our way home - on Selby Street I shot a pic of a gritty old wall with fennel growing beside it; and a chair that I'm not sure qualifies as an ‪#‎abandonedchair‬ - it is still pretty close to the building!

We found ourselves up on Kennedy Street where I got a shot of a nice Salmon-coloured rose and some Lavender flowers.

Back on Railway Avenue and almost home - I finally shot a picture of this house that amuses me - the roof just keeps getting piled with more and more stuff - in an attempt to stop leaks I'm thinking! Unfortunately this angle doesn't show the full extent of the rubbish on this house.

NOTE: My shot of the Railway tracks is out of order and Face Book just won't let me move it into it's correct position. Darn.
