Duncan, BC

It is an impression I wanted to share with you.


About Joseph de Lange

Before retirement worked in art galleries, a photo studio, offices, and the trades. Don't travel much anymore but still photograph. For the past 5 years 95% of my photography is done with the phone. My prediction for big cameras: DSLRs and their beautiful lenses and even the smaller mirrorless cameras will be mostly a historical footnote in the not too distant future.

I expect the residents felt the necessity of that change was a bit mean spirited.

    • Yes ehpem it is the end of the lens together with clouds and haze and sunshine. That’s what has caused this Duncan look. Thanks for the dose of enlightenment and I am sure that some of the Queen Charlotte City inhabitants are unhappy with the new name, but one would think that there must be a way for locals to turn the new name into an asset perhaps through tourist brochures or…
