Welcome to our giant photo directory of Nanaimo! Post your photos here for posterity and/or conversation, or if you need information about something you photographed!
First: How to post photos in the forum:
You just need to get your photo onto the Internet SOMEWHERE, like Flickr or...
A lot of photos get posted in our "Nanaimo Perspectives" category, so I try to keep the category split up into different "threads". This is the third.
1st Nanaimo perspectives thread
2nd Nanaimo perspectives thread
Here's a bench on the Trailway just west of Ninth St. I really like this...
Here is a new thread for photos of (and from) Gabriola Island.
Pictures of annie-moes! (Animals)

Went by the Classic Car show at Montana's today and took a few pics. The bright sunlight made it tough to get good exposures, but I decided to just go with it and use the reflections to make the pictures more interesting.
Canon SX 50 for both shots.
Didn't really see a category for night time photos so I thought I would start one. Here is one I took of the moon the other night.
Since we lost our digital camera I could not capture the photo of the "Shaggy Mane" mushrooms I saw up on Mount Arrowsmith. They were past due and slowly disolving into Ink, but were amoung the biggest I have ever seen standing at least a 14 inches tall.
These are one of the most easily...
Love Neck Point and was trying out a new camera (Canon SX 50 Superzoom) and managed to get this shot.
I photograph lots of ships that visit Nanaimo, so here's a thread for those kinds of photos from all of us.
For starters, here's our June-July 2011 guest, the heavy-lift ship and the drilling-platform that she's carrying.
- the drilling-platform is now at Duke Point getting repair...
Over in my intro on the business forum, it was suggested I post some shots of Nanaimo I've taken, so here's a recent one I took which made the front page of the Daily News. I'm a director of the Nanaimo Astronomy Society and we are looking at having Westwood Lake a designated International Dark...
Four photos taken around town.
1) Looking onto the Great National Land building from the second floor of 223 Commercial Street, once home of the Nanaimo Daily Free Press.
2) And a walk along the old rail tracks off Bowen Road.
3) A reflective view from Hill's Indian Art on Bastion Street....
I didn't know where to put this so thought I'd start a new thread :) ... my mutt waiting for a treat!
No2 photo is at the canine therapy pool in Errington, poor dog looks worried to death but she really enjoys it, honest!
Oh, & a couple of the nags ...
Just wondering if any other forum users are on Instagram...
This thread can be for anything that relates to Nanaimo's long and interesting past.
I figure it's appropriate to begin the story with these pictures of petroglyphs, which are tucked away unceremoniously on Extension Ridge. Sorry about the quality; maybe one day someone'll submit some better...
My Dad and I went fishing for trout yesterday afternoon at Green Lake. Weather wasn't too bad, we had a few short downpours (got quite wet) but had a wonderful time. We were there three hours and both caught our limits. Snapped a few photos and thought I'd share them.
Time to start a new thread!

For the last almost six months it has said "Happy New Year". Well, today I looked out the window and it said this:
This is a popular thread - maybe because the subject matter is so open.
The first "Nanaimo Perspectives" thread is already 11 pages long, so, just to keep things wieldy, I'm starting this second one.
Here's that mill right by the Duke Point ferry terminal. I took the photo from the Nanaimo...
This thread is for images that present Nanaimo's landscape in a new or unorthodox light. Interpret that however.
This might be fun.
Here is a video i did of Westwood Lake. Did it today for my Digital Media Class at VIU.
Thank you to everyone that participated.
Some names have been changed and the story is NOT all fact based. Its for fun and i thought i would share.
On Sunday, April 18, 2010, I visited Biggs and Jack Point parks for the first time ever. Wow, what a great place. Apart from a sketchy parking lot where I was grateful to find my car un-vandalized at the end of my hike, it was a great place.
Here are my pictures, designed to give you a "you are...
