There are a wide range of reaction to your work here and well, there should be. I worked at Tranquille in the summer of 1972, 1973 during which time I lived in the newer of the residences; and from 1978 to early 1980. People on this forum refer to the emotion of these photos. Rightfully so; I am now moved to tears. What an outrageous shame that this has been allowed to happen. I was stuck on the turquoise blue boarded up building until I realized it was the Administration building, almost not recognizable. I worked upstairs in the building (Greaves Building) that has the mural painted on the west facing wall. It overlooked Kamloops Lake. Ive stumbled upon this by accident. Ive recently purchased a painting of Tranquille and still have a strong attachment to my time there, and the place itself. Thank you to Barbara Read and Fred Schaad. What a wonderful surprise.....Michael.

Barbara, Fred. I have looked over your galleries extensively over the past few months and I want to say that you both do exquisite work. Your compositions and mechanics are superb. Every one of your pictures is well thought out and expertly captured. You have some outstanding galleries you should be very proud of. Keep up the good work (and thanks for continually stopping by my galleries and making all those nice comments).

Wow amazing work on the Tranquille pictures. I never knew about this place until a few days ago. I'm an amateur photographer and I'm facinated by abandonned places of all kinds. What a chance you guys had to go inside to take those shots. I've been itching to get out there to do the same, unfortunately the place is closed to the public since some big shots decided that it would be a good idea to destroy it and turn it into a village of 3000 to 4000 people. Nice way to make canadian history disapear!!!! You guys have managed to immortolize this place very well. Great work!!!
sherwood frazier25-Feb-2010 02:03
Thank you both for the remarks on my travel gallery of Nova Scotia. There were many chances at Moose, these 2 were at the very edge of the road and had no fear of us. Nova Scotia was a wonderful trip and we will return one day soon.
Take care folks and keep the great shots coming, I'll be back!

Hi Barbara and Fred,

Thanks for the nice comment on my skateborder shot. It's been a while since I visited your galleries, but still am amazed at the overall quality of your shots. I love the auto galleries (and I'm really not a 'car guy'...).

Hi Fred and Barbara:
I love the candid portrait shots. They capture the true essence of life. There is also a timeless feeling about black and whites. I love the shots of nature, especially birds and the landscape shots are breathtaking. I have always found your photos very inspiring. Thank you for sharing your unique artistic view of this beautiful world we live in.
Sincerely, Kym

Les 04-Aug-2006 23:16
Great photographs of Jasper/Banff areas. I noticed that some of your photo's list a Pentax ESII as the camera used. Do you still have one of these old cameras...The ESII was my first 35mm SLR. Great camera in its time.

I had a chance to visit Vancouver in February and was impressed with the beautiful scenery, although the new construction was rather distracting. Your style of photography is inspiring and really shows how a master uses the light. I enjoyed your lovely galleries.

Fred and Barbara: You have some of the lovliest images on here. I have no idea how you keep your film images so sharp when you have them scanned. Your exposures are really very good. I may join this site as a regular member but you're apt to see the same ol' photos I have had for quite awhile now (for lack of newer ones).
Guest 26-Mar-2006 03:03
extremely good photographs, thanks for sharing!
