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 28/16
Indy and I made the best of another very quick walk today - we went downtown for coffee and a snack. I think I got some interesting shots today even though I didn't shoot a lot. I was trying to work with the extremely bright day when shooting these - some in the shade - some with nice strong highlights.
First some figs ripening on Park Avenue - and paving on the same block - across from Robins Field. They also seem to be paving the parking lot of the park or at least the entrance.
Next some weeds growing along a fence in the alley between Pine Street and Farquhar Street.
On the way to coffee at the waterfront I shot the mural that seems to grow slowly on the wall of The Vault Café - this art off Albert Street. AND I like this shot: An urn waiting to be moved into storage or a banquet room at the Coast Bastion Hotel. This is on Wharf Street.
After coffee we checked up on the 'deconstruction' of the building on Church Street (the old Maps and Charts store) - this view from the back - off Bastion Street.
And ANOTHER shot of my friend Tim and his dog - he is just a beautiful person to photograph!
