The Perfect Camping Spot

Well, you’ll have to excuse the abundance of photo posts with very little text to go with them; I just haven’t been in the mood to write. I intended this one to be different, I really wanted to tell a […]

Siwash Rock – Stanley Park, Vancouver

Thick fog and a bright sun led to this moody photograph of Siwash Rock in Stanley Park. Believe it or not, this is a pretty fair representation of how things actually looked on that day, the picture hasn’t been artificially […]

Hazy Day at English Bay

Another one from a cold, damp day in Stanley Park, this time around the English Bay area. This is one of those photos that comes out of the camera and looks, well, not amazing. The lighting was difficult, the conditions […]

Foggy Day in Stanley Park

I remember that this day was cold. Cold and damp. Vancouver hardly every gets snow, and the temperature rarely drops below zero even in the middle of winter, but the dampness of our west coast climate make up for that. […]

I took this one the same day as the photo I posted previously. What a difference a slight change of perspective can make, eh? I am actually very pleased with both of these photos. In this one I particularly love […]

If you haven’t bashed selective colour, you haven’t become a “real” photographer. Selective colour is awful, horrible, cheap and amateurish. Yeah, usually. But personally, I think I pulled it off.

A Bright Spot

While wandering around the edge of Gastown I came across this fellow. It seemed to me like he had found a bright spot in the sunshine in an otherwise dreary life. For me the bicycle speeding by in the background […]

Hawaii Jungle Grove

I remember coming to the top of a hill during a short trek through the Jungle in Hawaii, and being greeted by this small stand of trees. I was struck by the beauty of it, but also the eeriness; the […]

Rocky Peak In Banff

Well this is embarrassing. I had originally posted this photo as “Rocky Peak in Maui”, but I have since realized that I had this one very mixed up indeed. I don’t know how I did it, but I somehow got […]
