Dale Schulz - Nanaimo - "As He Sees It" - May 30/16

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 30/16

Today Indy and I enjoyed a walk with my good friend Ric Steed. A beautiful day it is!

First Indy and I saw some real nice looking walnuts growing on 5th Street near Ric's place; then I shot a view of Mt. Benson from Ric's doorstep. Nice view!

Downtown I shot a detail of the sculptural work at Diana Krall Plaza; A portrait of Ric through the 'Love is in the Air' sculpture at Maffeo Sutton Park; and a view of Mt Benson from beside the lagoon. We walked onto Cliff Street where I shot a funky little coffee place - Ric doesn't care for the 'tacky' look of the signage - but he is a consummate professional when it comes to sign-writing!

Found some weeds growing under the Bastion Street Bridge and lastly took a photo of the Meyers Norris Penny Building on Wallace Street - for those long time residents - this was the site of the old Legion Building, Nanaimo #1 Branch I think.
