A few other shots taken with the Kodak P850 several years ago and recently rediscovered on a USB stick.
This is an old Case 530 tractor I owned when I lived in Langley. I bought it with the engine seized and still had enough ability then to rebuild it. Not so sure I could do that these days. I used it for a while around the property, and sold it on. Here it is sitting in a rare-for-the-area snowfall. I’m not entirely sure this is a digital camera picture as it dates from a time when film was still available and the format seems to be analogous with a scanned 35mm print @ 640 x 427 instead of 640 x 480.
This old ranch hand I spotted not too far from here. I haven’t been back that way lately to see if it’s still around. An awful lot of the vehicles I’ve spotted over the years have disappeared. We can only hope they’ve gone for restoration and not for scrap.
Taken in the backyard at Langley. Good sunsets are unusual down there due to the pollution. When you come down out of the mountains and hit the lateral valley towards Vancouver you drive right into it: a wall of stinking, unbreathable air.
Along the winding canyon highway is the interesting settlement of Spence’s Bridge. I’ve seen quite a few unusual things while passing through there, including a Greyhound Scenic Cruiser (which is now gone).
When the water level is high in the Spring the creek will flood the yard at the lake and the overflow finds its own path. You never know what it will be like until you get out there and see. This year there’s a lot of snowpack, so it could be very wet indeed.
This is in the rocks at Spence’s Bridge, across from the church and quite a ways away from the road. Another reason why I like long lenses, as it wouldn’t be possible to walk up to this even if ignoring the trespassing laws.
One thought on “More from the past”
