Meditation – sand dunes on the Oregon Coast

Beautiful sand dunes just outside of Florence ( Oregon not Italy ) .

I was thinking of the image for today as it was not a good day. It started with passing away of Leo Dery . He was the oldest member of our Surrey Photography Club , few days short of 95th birthday . I really liked him , he was .. great. Sens of humor and vitality . At 94 he asked me “ How much ? “ … “ Leo ? How much what ? “ … “ To start with that digital , I need good camera and computer – so how much ? “ . He was not a tall man but I looked up to him

Later in the day earthquake in Christchurch . First thing, I checked where Ian lives .. big sigh of relief 200-300km south . Than he posted an update – they are OK .

Here in Vancouver we tend to be reminded about geological past of our city as the earth shakes other places.

My prayers are with Leo and people of Christchurch
