    A rare opportunity presented itself to me on the rooftop garden at the Vancouver Public Library. Two geese were chilling out in the planter with a glass divider between me and them. Geese can be quite aggressive, so normally I would never date get this close. However, with the protection of the glass, I was able to get up close and personal. I'm not sure they appreciated it, but they held their ground. #urbannature #urbanwildlife #canadagoose #birds #goose #geese #naturephotography #nature_perfection #nature #naturegram #naturelovers #nature_shooters #beauty

    Ornamental fruit tree blossoms. Fragile and ephemeral beauty. An excerpt from a recent Under the Piano recording and some pictures captured just the other day. I observed, this morning, that the blooms on the tree that was the source of most of these photos are nearly gone. #cherryblossom #spring #flowers #plants #naturephotography #nature_perfection #nature #naturegram #naturelovers #nature_shooters #flower #flowerstagram #horticulture #garden #gardening #gardens #beauty #photography #photo #pianist #pianoplayer #pianoman #musician #composer #improviser

    Some sort of weeping cherry or ornamental fruit tree. So delicate and graceful. - - #spring #cherryblossom #ornamentaltree #flowers #plants #naturephotography #nature_perfection #nature #naturegram #naturelovers #nature_shooters #flower #flowerstagram #horticulture #garden #gardening #gardens #beauty #photography #photo

    Tofu scramble is still one of my favourite things. I'm still not tired of Erin Campbell's recipe from Thomas Campbell's The China Study Solution. I like it so much, I've never ventured to try any other recipes. If you make Tofu Scramble, what's your favourite recipe? - - - #vegetarian #vegan #veggies #wholefood #plantbased #nutrition #health #food #cooking #plant #yummy #wfpb #fitnessjourney #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosstransformation #weightlifting #training #liftingweights #exercise #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitover40 #fitover50 #tofu #tofuscramble

    If you don’t like the fuzz on peaches you may not like this. I discovered some time ago that there is really no need to peel kiwis. It’s so much simpler. This morning’s breakfast: Oatmeal with cinnamon, ground flax, banana, strawberries, kiwi and unsweetened soy milk. - - PS: if the kiwis are particularly fuzzy I give a good scrub to remove some of the fuzz. - - #fruit #naturestreasures #sweettreats #vegetarian #vegan #nutrition #health #food #cooking #plant #yummy #wfpb #wholefoodplantbased #fitover40 #fitover50

    Vancouver was merrily getting on with spring and then this happened. Poor little flowers didn’t know what hit them. #primula #primulas #flowers #plants #naturephotography #nature_perfection #nature #naturegram #naturelovers #nature_shooters #flower #flowerstagram #horticulture #garden #gardening #gardens #beauty #photography #photo

    Posting the opening minute of the music for this video I threw together quickly. It’s an improvisation I did just last Sunday using my synthesizer to control some new orchestral sampled sounds I’m exploring. The HALion Sonic orchestral library isn’t even considered high quality but compared to what I’ve had access to before this is a big step up. What’s really exciting is how much expression and subtlety is possible without any post production on the recorded sound. I'm not sure why it made me think of the the more gloomy and mournful aspects of the ocean, but it did. I went through my photo library and selected a few shots I've taken over the years to partner with the music. #HALionSonicse #halionsymphonicorchestra #dorico #stringensemble #naturephotography #nature_perfection #nature #naturegram #naturelovers #nature_shooters #beauty #photography #photo #ocean #sea #seaside #oceanside #seawall #orchestration #improv #improviser #instamusic #instapiano #UnderThePiano #CraigAddy #pianoman #pianoplayer #pianomusic

    Ocean Song I'm excited about these sounds. Especially because they were an unexpected bonus that came with a free 30 day trial of Dorico, a new software application for professionally typesetting music. Dorico comes with a playback engine and a library of orchestral instruments. The playback engine lets composers and music engravers playback the music they have typeset in the program and hear that all sounds as it should and create an audio file for potential performers to listen to. The music for this video is an improvisation I did just on Sunday using my synthesizer to control the orchestral sounds that came with Dorico. I am shocked at how much expression and subtlety is possible without any post production on the recorded sound.
