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 26/16
Hi Folks! It is a HOT day out there and Indy and I had a good walk but only stopped to take a handful of photos - so in addition to the five from our walk I've included three shots of insects on our fennel plants - just to round things out a bit.
The first two shots are of the back of the Patricia Hotel on Halliburton and Baker Streets. I always wonder how long it will be before this building comes down.
The next two are a little 'prettier' - newly-painted rocks in the boulevard garden/gallery on Albert Street. I appreciate these little bits of colour and detail added to the street.
The last from the walk is a subject I've shot before - an #abandonedsofa on Hecate Street - the gate that shielded it from the street has disappeared, but the ivy has grown in to add protection.
At home I stood out in the hot sun for a few minutes and got pictures of a bee, a ladybug, and a wasp (I think it's a wasp).
