Here’s a colourful group taking photos of Niagara Falls. I find tourist traps fascinating. I can’t stand them for the most part and can’t wait to get out of them, but clearly I am in […]

I was looking through some older photos for a sky to, er, borrow… And I came across this photo from the Oregon coast. Why did it escape my attention before? I don’t know.
I had such a great time at this little bit of paradise. I can’t wait to go back.
As soon as I saw hipsters, I had a feeling we weren’t in Wyoming anymore. Was that cheesy? Well it should be, because this picture was taken in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. What is it with me […]
One thing you get used to as a Canadian is that most of your cultural institutions are American. It’s just the natural result of being a country with a relatively small population right next door […]
Our feet were sore and covered in blisters from our walk around Manhattan the day before. The weather was iffy too, but damn it; one does not simply visit New York and not go to […]
Stephen Colbert is host of the Late Show, The Tonight Show is in New York and Conan O’brien is still screwed over and stuck on TBS. Just some of the thoughts that passed through my […]
One of my favourite parts of my recent trip across the USA was a detour back into Canada to spend a couple of days in the beautiful Muskoka region of Ontario. I love twilight on […]
I recently had the pleasure of passing through Yellowstone National Park as part of an extended trip across the United States. Unfortunately I wasn’t lucky enough to be there in the evening when the light […]
Sometimes it’s worth looking up. In this case you get a much different view of the Golden Gate Bridge from inside Fort Point in San Francisco.
A view from one of the windows at Fort Point, San Francisco, USA. It reminds me of this photo of the Sylvia Hotel in Vancouver.
To say that I am impressed with the sharpness and clarity of my new Olympus 40-150mm F2.8 would be an understatement. Holy crap!
I have small balcony pond (actually it’s a patio pond now as we no longer live at a place with a balcony). The pond is home to at least four goldfish. I say ‘at least’ […]
A cool summer day on the beautiful Oregon Coast. And that’s all I have to say about that.
I captured this guy as he was reviewing the photos he had just taken on his iPhone of the fog that was blanketing English Bay in Vancouver. It’s a bit of a shame, in my […]
Sometimes it’s fun to take an everyday object and try to make it interesting. And if you can come up with a painfully clever title for it, so much the better.
I call it the Moon Base, because that’s what I felt like I was looking at while standing at the peak of Mt. Haleakala on Maui, Hawaii. Of course it really isn’t, it’s the Haleakala […]
Here is a view of an officer’s quarters at Fort Point in San Francisco, which sits right under the Golden Gate Bridge. Many of the rooms at Fort Point have been ‘restored’ to resemble what […]
Kentucky Lake is certainly a photogenic place, whether it’s just after a storm, or in the peaceful twilight as seen here. This is the kind of place that makes you really appreciate the present, and […]
When I visited the BC Cancer Agency last week for my “chemo teach” session, I was given a very nice paper journal which I took as an indication that journaling was a popular and encouraged […]
