IMG_5948My friend Lavanya, from Singapore, recently wrote to me asking for answers to some questions. She’s promoting a blogging award called Liebster. Fellow bloggers can nominate each other and nominees can answer questions and then pay it forward by nominating others themselves. It’s kind of like an on-line chain letter that helps introduce new bloggers to others in the process. Thanks for the nomination Lavanya. Here goes…


Q:  What gear do you normally use for photography?

A:  My camera is a Nikon D40 and my filming is done with a Canon Vixia with a dedicated microphone. I’m hoping to get a zoom lens soon so I can stop borrowing my Mom’s all the time.

IMG_6186Q:  What has been your favourite sighting (spotting) of nature?

A:  My favourite sighting was of humpback whales in the Broken Islands on the west coast of B.C. on a kayaking trip. We were lucky enough to come across a male and female when they were mating and I was able to take pictures for nearly 30 minutes.

Q:  Why do you love nature?

A:  I love nature because I grew up with it and have lived in it all my life. It’s part of my history and my childhood and it brings me a lot of calm when my life gets really busy. It’s always waiting to be visited and there’s always something new to discover.

Q:  Where would you want to go most in the world?

DSC_3494A:  I would love to visit Australia, the Seychelles Islands and Alaska would probably be highest on my list.


Q:  Why did you start blogging?

A:  I started blogging because people were often asking about my work and I thought a blog was a great place to have all my information in one place. It’s also a great way to document the things you do and the people you meet. Being able to highlight the works of others is a real advantage as well. It’s just one more way of getting important messages out there to other people who share similar passions for helping the environment.
