The best part about my wife’s new business is that every time she creates a new product, I get to take pictures of it! This is her mashup of Star Wars and The Legend of Zelda cross-stitch pattern, which is for sale at her store. I have an acquaintance with a love for 3D printing […]

Rachelle and I decided to spend the afternoon in Steveston on the way to a craft brewery we wanted to check out. I managed to sneak my head in the doorway of the old shipbuilding, uh, building, just before they were closing up. So no annoying people around to get in the way! And just […]
You may have heard that Donald Trump is literally Hitler. Of course, in the parlance of our times, literally literally means figuratively. Words don’t mean what they mean anymore, they mean whatever the barely literate liberal arts gender studies major with filthy rich parents who’s lecturing you about your “privilege” wants them to mean. Up […]
Yet another in my series of photos of interesting windows. I have taken tonnes of window pictures. They’re terrific and the best window pictures. Everyone agrees.
This is a lamppost. It’s in Chinatown in Vancouver. I thought it looked cool, and there were no cars in the way, so I took a picture of it. And that’s all I have to say about that.
My wife Rachelle has been hard at work for the past few months on something she’s wanted to do for a very long time: She’s launched her own jewellery and craft business. She’s creating and selling beautiful handmade items straight out of her own imagination. It’s called Lyrical Junk and you can find her website […]
This is The Liberty Distillery on Granville Island. My automatic attraction to symmetry continues. One of these days I’ll have to actually go inside for a tasting; to pretend I’m sophisticated and stuff.
So the question was: can I take a good photo of this cool Chinese New Year tree that’s in a busy tourist location and in front of a busy, distracting background? The answer was a resounding “kind of”. I just had to wait for the right moment… But other people thought I was being too […]
Black and white was the way to go on this one, the colours just weren’t very complementary. But it’s still a great window. Have I seen better windows? Impossible to say for sure.
I was driving down the highway when I was suddenly surrounded by this amazing sky. I knew I wanted a picture but I knew by the time I got to a “good” area the moment would be gone. So I pulled off the road at the first opportunity. It was cold, extremely windy, and I […]
She’s a lot plumper than her brother, but that doesn’t mean she’s any more likely to sit still for a photo. But it’s kind of fun trying to snag that shallow depth of field shot during those split second pauses.
At first glance, he may appear to be a cat. But he’s actually a monkey. A monkey who wonders why I’m pointing that big giant black thing at his face. He’s a good monkey.
About once a decade things get really weird and we actually get snow here on the wet coast. That is, snow that sticks around for more than an hour before turning into a soggy, slushy mess. This year we’ve been especially fortunate. We’ve had almost a solid month of this bright, cheery, white winter in […]
This photo was taken on my second of two trips to California where it was cold and gloomy. Okay, that was expected in San Francisco, but it was more of a surprise in Santa Monica.
This is Incinerator Rock in Tofino, BC and it’s a lot bigger than it looks. Determined to place the island dead centre in my frame, I walked down the beach. And I walked… and I walked… and I walked… Every once in a while I’d stop and get my camera out, thinking for sure I […]
His buddy the oyster was like, “I got an ocean pearl”. And clam said, “oh yeah, well I got a diamond”.
Tofino is most definitely one of the most beautiful places in Canada. I wouldn’t say the sun shines most of the time, but the feeling is laid back. The beaches are beautiful, and even though palm trees don’t grow, I always think about making my way back.
These “log forts” can be found all along the beaches of Tofino and Ucluelet. I’m not sure what their purpose is, but my guess is that they were constructed by surfers to provide a quick escape from the storms that can come out of nowhere… Anybody know?
I looked down at this sea-foam and there were a hundred photographers looking back at me. Weird.
This guy (or girl, I can’t remember) is one of the resident’s at the Bloedel Floral Conservatory in Vancouver. He’s not as colourful as this yellow bird, but he’s every bit as beautiful. The most annoying thing about birds is their absolute refusal to sit still for more than two seconds at a time…
