Author Profile: Jonathan Timar



Hello, I’m Jonathan. Welcome to In the Limelight, my little slice of the web. Here I showcase my photography and blog about creativity, travel, and personal development. I also offer various creative services.

I live in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia with the love of my life, Rachelle. When I am not taking pictures or geeking out at my computer I enjoy cycling, cooking and reading novels until the wee hours of the morning.

In 2013 I participated in The Ride to Conquer Cancer and cycled from Vancouver to Seattle. Together with my team we raised over $500,000 dollars for cancer research.

I am always looking to connect with other like-minded people.

Goldfish Portraits

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’ […]

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.

Twilight at Kentucky Lake

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 […]

Secret Window

Sometimes it’s fun to see an alternate take on the same subject. For instance this photo of a Hawaiian sunset and an alternate taken just moments later. I took a few photos of the Sylvia […]

I Have Testicular Cancer

After two months of uncertainty, three ultrasounds, multiple blood tests, a CT scan and a traumatic surgery, it has finally been confirmed. I have testicular cancer. Obviously this diagnosis triggers a sea of conflicting emotions […]

Oregon Coast Beach

I didn’t expect that I’d be travelling down to the Oregon coast twice in one year, but that’s exactly what I’ll be doing. In August Rachelle and I will be enjoying this beautiful drive for […]

Movie Review: Maleficent

Warning: This review spoils the story but you should read it anyway because I’m certain it’s more interesting than the actual movie. So there. “Will you ever be able to enjoy anything again,” asked Rachelle, […]

My Urban Garden

Okay, so here’s something a little different from the type of photos I normally post. Rather than being “art” this is just a snapshot of the balcony pond and urban garden that we recently put […]
