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).
I get so much pleasure and inspiration from your images. There is so much variety but no matter the subject or theme it is excellent to say the least. I look forward with great anticipation to whatever comes next.
My best wishes to you both.

Incredible collection of A+ Photography. Congratulations.
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!!!
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!
Thank you for visiting and commenting on my ice racing gallery! Much appreciated. Your Cloud Jumper series is amazing by the way. Great action photography. Your timing and positioning was perfect. Regards - Gary

Hi Barb, Great shots at Tranquille.......I've always wanted to know what it looked like inside. Love how each area was captured. Ernesta
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'...).
Beautiful work !!! Love some of the sunset shots.
Thanks for all your recent comments, I appreciate your generous feedback. Just taken a quick look at your galleries again, you have captured some truly inspirational images. Well done! Nick

A wonderful reminder of my two visits to BC and the Rockies in the 1970's. Heaven on earth.
From a browser in England - thank you.
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.
Thank you for making this beauty available for those of us who haven't been able to see it ourselves. You are both incredibly talented artists.
You have amazing galleries the landscpe ones on Canda (several, US) being incredible. Your galleries cannot be locked quickly and they are very nice to be back several time. Thanks for the lesson!!
Hi..thanks for your recent visit to my F1 Gallery. You have very beautiful pictures. Will sure be following your work. Rgds Tricia
Wonderful shots! I enjoyed looking through your Galleries! Your photos of the Palouse are really good and not to be missed. Thank for dropping by my Galleries!
My what a wonderful web it is. A half hour ago I didn't know you folks existed. And now you've toured me around some amazing locations in our respective countries, pleased my eyes, and given photography lessons to boot. Thanks for your exceptional pBase gallery!

That shot I had that looks like Richard Gere really was. I had great seats on the field at Yankee Stadium and he was there too. Also the keyboardist for the rock band Bon jovi (although I didn't lnow who he was util someone told me.

Love all the galleries specialy Canadian Landscape. So beautiful moments captures. And the quality is incredible.
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.
Thank you for visiting my galleries. From such a great photogapher your words of encouragement are really appreciated.
Thanks for visiting, commenting and voting. Appreciated. Regarding the comment about the "Carscapes". Happy to be of help. All you need is a few clouds. :)

High quality galleries, great talent.
Quite the wonderful collection of images you two are compiling. I could comment on all the beautiful galleries you have here, but it would take days!! For now, I'll just have to add you to my favorites and come back often to continue exploring your work.

I'm so glad I've found your galleries - they're the best scenic photos I've seen for a long time!
Very much enjoyed looking through your galleries. Also looking forward to your further travels. John
Your images are amazing. Your comps and use of ambient lite are first rate. I hope you guys are marketing your work.
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.
Fantastic images. It was a real pleasure visiting your galleries!
Great Photo`s.. and 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).
extremely good photographs, thanks for sharing!
You have some pretty nice images.
