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...
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...
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...
The Colliery Dams are a cool old park on the side of the hill behind Harewood, where the Chase River comes down from the ridges. Anybody got pictures?
Here's a map I made a long time ago. Sniff*
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.
We have some amazing trees and other flora around Nanaimo, including huge firs and graceful arbutuses, vibrant manzanitas, colourful rhododendrons, otherworldly monkey puzzle trees, hopeful palms, delicious magnolias, and so much more. Post your photos here!
(There is another thread on this...
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:
Swimming at Brownie Bay, Nanaimo
Here's a bus bench on Protection Island. Not sure why it's there.
It's at the south end of the island, a beautiful, desolate place with great views of the city across the water, and a cool boat ramp, and awesome waterfront homes, and petrified wood on the beach by the lighthouse. There's also a...
The estuary is a really neat, huge place. It's historic for those with the education (or imagination) to have some idea of what this place has seen.
I also wrote a short blog post with some other photos of the estuary.
Nanaimo River - fishing hole downstream from Cedar Bridge
This is a really cool little group of islands, just outside of Departure Bay (and not as far out as Snake Island). You have to get out there with your own watercraft (we used canoes), but it is a very worthwhile excursion! It is a really neat landscape.
Here's the view from the ferry, or perhaps...
This thread is dedicated to showcasing and honouring and playing around with our fantastic and unique arbutus trees.
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...
