Welcome to OST Photographic Srevices



, , , , , , , ,

I’m pleased you stopped by OST Photographic Services. I’m local to the Fraser Valley and Chilliwack in particular. Take your time and look around. One of the most enjoyable things I do here, is restore photographs. But I’d have to say the most rewarding, is capturing the action in amateur sports or kids at play. There is much more I do here, but you’ll have to look around and hopefully enjoy… Feel free to contact me for further information on any of the services or posts I have made. Don’t forget to have a look at the “Prints”

Monday the 17th of March was a kick off for this week long celebration. A group of us got together at the Peach Road parking lot on the Vedder River Rotary Trail for an interesting and informative walk. The walk was hosted by the “Water Wealth Project” located here in Chilliwack. Continue reading

The weather took a turn towards “Autumn” today. I had started to clean up and prep some cedar boards for a project I have in mind, but soon realized the climate was against me. Wondering…

Volunteer Poppies


, , ,

These are volunteer poppies. I came across them while trimming up some vines and other plant life around the yard.

I don’t know the variety, but “Poppies” have been a symbol of remembrance since WWI.

I hope you like them…
