Lifelong Nanaimo resident, professional artist and illustrator Dale Schulz 'sees' much of Nanaimo many of us simply walk by without giving a second thought.
Through the eyes of an artist the everyday can become almost magical and with a few simple photos of his daily walks, Dale captures and shares some of that magic on his Facebook page.
The following is the most recent example of what Dale sees when he walks about our lovely seaside community many of us just take for granted.

Dale's Post - June 27/16
A handful of shots from downtown today. Indy and I had to stop at the City Hall Annex to pay our property taxes and then cut through the City Hall Gardens on our way to the waterfront for coffee.
I stopped on the path in the garden to try and get a picture of Indy but he wasn't cooperating! It was too hot there and he wanted to keep moving, so I got only one picture with him in the frame and not too blurred. Next I turned to face uphill and took a picture of City Hall. It looks quite imposing from near Wallace Street.
Down on Gordon Street there was more filming (or taping) going on. I believe for the same production that was working in town a couple weeks ago - 'Chesapeake Shore'. This time it's the back of the Conference Centre that is posing as a New York building.
I thought that the big square 'diffuser' on the crane was pretty cool!
