It’s a darn good thing that residents of Barkerville didn’t have to deal with today’s politics. Imagine the carbon tax they’d have to pay with all these dirty oil lanterns hanging about.

I’m not exactly sure when building codes were introduced in British Columbia, but I am reasonably confident Barkerville predates them by several decades at least. And what is the result of a town built relatively […]
As a photographer, how do you deal with a crowded place like Barkerville? Tourists have a bad habit of ruining the mood when you’re trying to capture images of a 19th century gold rush town. […]
Our first day in Barkerville was perfect. Nice warm, but not hot, weather and sunny skies. But by that evening we were huddled under a tarp that we literally threw over ourselves and the picnic […]
This is just a window in Barkerville. A very old window. I though it looked cool. I’ve taken a few other pictures of windows too.
Buster’s clearly went bust a while ago because this is its “good side”. There seems to be two kinds of small towns in America. There’s the quaint, heritage styled “arts communities”. Those are nice. And […]
What do you do when there’s a storm brewing and you’re stopped at a deserted rest stop in the middle of nowhere, somewhere in northeastern California? Take pictures, of course. Here’s a wider view:
I have said it before and I’ll say it again, the Oregon coast is one of my favourite places on earth. Every time I go back there I come away with a new appreciation for […]
Okay, so our Yosemite plans didn’t work out exactly how we imagined. We arrived under the midday sun, couldn’t find anywhere to camp and had no choice but to pass right though. I did what […]
A shot of my beautiful muse, and now my wife. This is the first portrait I have taken of Rachelle since we got married. Just casual and impromptu as we were passing through Gasoline Alley […]
Rachelle and I took a little tip into Fort Langley today. I took this shot in Gasoline Alley, a little enclave of shops off the main street. It’s right in the centre of town, but […]
I was just walking through the woods one day when I saw these brightly lit ferns, way up high in the distance.
Looking at what’s just behind this mural makes me wonder how long it’s been here and how long before it’s defaced by graffiti. Hmm. Just underneath the Santa Monica Pier.
Santa Monica, a city where they don’t put the prices of drinks on the menu, and you feel ridiculous having to ask. And there are these lovely little shacks, located just behind the bustling Santa […]
Sit still, would ya! Sandhill Cranes are certainly not the most cooperative of animals. They seem to be incredibly curious about what people are doing and have an annoying habit of advancing rapidly toward the […]
You’ll have to excuse the pretentious title. I like taking photos a lot more than I like making them. Shot with florescent lights. Anyone who tells you it can’t be done hasn’t heard of custom […]
Alcatraz only closed about 50 years ago, so it’s quite amazing how much decay can occur in such a short space of time. I guess being in the middle of the ocean and constantly bombarded […]
The lighting was good (here’s a place where harsh midday light actually works), but apparently everyone in Minnesota decided to visit this place that day. I very much wanted the cliche shot of entire place, […]
Driving through the prairies can be boring… very boring. But when the evening light starts reflecting on the landscape it can also be very beautiful. The challenge is finding somewhere where you can actually pull […]
Washington Square Park is a less famous park in Manhattan. Much smaller than Central Park, it’s actually pretty ho-hum when you’re in it, but I found it quite interesting to look at from the outside. […]
