The Similkameen is where I spent my childhood. It’s one valley west of the more famous Okanagan Valley, in the southern interior of British Columbia. Both regions are rich with fuit trees and vineyards, producing some of the worlds finest wine grapes, apples, peaches, apricots, and cherries. It was the best possible place to be a kid.
This picture is ripe with personal nostalgia. Not only because it shows a place I once called home, but also because I captured this scene with an old camera that once was my father’s.
