Pole Raising on Haida Gwaii - 2001

One of the most exciting events during my time on Haida Gwaii was the Pole Raising in June 2001. Six wonderful - as well as huge - poles carved out of red cedar were raised in honor of the six old villages: Skidegate, Cumshewa, Skedans, Tanu, Chattl, and Nistints.

I took some pictures of the Pole Raising in order to remember it better. Since I only had a traditional camera at that time, not a digital one, I just photographed all the old paper photos with my digital camera to make them more portable and shareable. Unfortunately, the quality of the 'pictures of the pictures' is sometimes a bit poor. Sorry. If I ever have time, I will scan the original photos to make the digital pictures better.

Please note that these pictures are private pictures and for personal use only.

Happy viewing!

UBC - 2012 Calendar

Since the sun was out - and I happened to have my camera with me when I was invigilating an exam just a few days before Christmas - I took a few pictures of various buildings at UBC. They turned out reasonably well. So I turned them into a calendar.

Please feel free to use it if you wish!
