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. […]
This is the building that overlooks City Hall Park in New York City. So, naturally, I first assumed it was city hall. But it’s not, city hall is actually behind this building. New York was […]
I had a conversation with my dad today about my trip to New York. We got to talking about the food. I was telling him that, as a Vancouverite, the food in New York is […]
There’s a small Amusement Park within Central Park in New York known as Victoria Gardens. The only question I have is how in the world anyone can live In Manhattan and still afford to have […]
The statue of Atlas that stands outside Rockefeller Center in New York. This is as close as I am getting to a 9/11 post. But just so you know, New York is the best place […]
Mount Rushmore. What can I say? As a Canadian it’s never really been high on my list of must see places. I’ll be honest, we only went because it was on the way to New […]
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 […]
