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 - July 22/16
Lots of sights under the hot bright sun today folks!
I shot some old buildings and details of assorted things - a post, a wall, an arbutus tree. Found an #abandonedchair (with accessories!) on Sabiston Street. My favourite dilapidated house on Needham is under repair!
I got a couple shots of Mt. Benson under cloud - the one from Port Place also features the A&W where my daughter Dionne works.
The arbutus tree is in Maffeo Sutton Park - also where I shot the camouflaged soldier hiding his truck in the parking lot.
I got a shot of the trio playing at the Friday Market at Pioneer Plaza - not sure what they are called but they were good! Especially the percussionist!
On Commercial Street the Bathtub Market is starting to swing! I was lucky to get a shot of my friend Amanda and her friend Jen; and I took a shot up the street - I enjoy seeing Commercial Street closed to vehicle traffic!
