Bio

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.

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 [...]

The Avenue of the Giants

The Avenue of the Giants may just qualify as one of the most beautiful places in North America. It’s a narrow road that meanders through the giant redwood forests of northern California. In shares many [...]

San Francisco Gloom

I’m no fool, I know northern California isn’t southern California, but I expected the weather in San Francisco to be at least a little bit better than Vancouver. Well, not so much, not while we [...]

The Pillars at Chichen Itza

While we were visiting Chichen Itza, our guide would frequently lament that the Mexican government “didn’t care”. I got the impression that this was a broad statement that could apply to a lot of things [...]

The Red Door Building

One of the problems with digging up several years old photos and publishing them is that sometimes you can’t remember where you took them. Like this one for instance. I know it’s somewhere in Vancouver, [...]

Beautiful Life

A few years ago I was wandering through Vancouver’s Gastown neighbourhood and I came across this building. Of course I had seen this building many times before, but at that time an interesting business had [...]

Deep Green Sea

It’s hard for me to imagine not living near the ocean. I have grown up near the deep blue sea, it’s something very familiar to me. Every time I have ever considered moving away from [...]

Seafaring Vagabond

Permalink to Seafaring Vagabond By Jonathan Timar | Published February 21, 2014

I am always fascinated by backpackers, especially when they are travelling alone. I always wonder where they are going and where they have been. More than that, I wonder why they are travelling? And then [...]
