Author Profile: Jonathan


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.

This stunning work of art is a statue of Francois De Laval in Quebec City. Francois De Laval was the first Roman Catholic bishop of Quebec and is considered to be the Father of the Canadian Church. A quick perusal […]

It’s been exactly one week since we traveled to Calgary and brought our new family member home. He bravely left behind his brothers and sisters and his “gramma” (Thank you, Carol!) and got into a car with two strangers who […]

Montreal Graffiti

Apparently some people really like graffiti. Put me on the camp of people who still think it’s an asshole thing to do. That said, it can make for some interesting photos when wandering around a new city, in this case, […]

Prince Edward Island Church

I spotted this church as we were driving around Prince Edward Island and I had to turn around to get a picture. By Prince Edward Island standards, this is a big church. Even with my superwide I was only barely […]

Seattle Gum Wall Vent

A while back my wife and I went on an overnight trip to Tacoma to see the worst concert in the history of mankind (seriously, #$%#! you, Roger Waters, you complete and utter tool), so the highlight of the trip […]

Bomber Brewing

Vancouver is extremely saturated with craft breweries, which is good because if you can’t afford a house, at least you can spend your money on good beer an drink it with your eight roommates. Now I know that may come […]

Hipster Coffee

I love good coffee. What I don’t particularly love is pretentious coffee (or pretentious anything else, really). But the other day we were out and about in East Van looking for the nearest coffee shop that wasn’t Starbucks. We had […]

Two Forests in Arashiyama – Kyoto, Japan

Arashiayama is famous for a few things. One of them is Iwatayama Monkey Park, and another is this beautiful bamboo forest. But it’s not the only forest in town. There’s also the kimono “forest”, which is a collection of cylindrical […]

Landyachtz Arcade

I happened across this scene while exploring the many breweries in East Vancouver. Apparently it’s a “pop-up arcade” operated by a local skateboard company. I just thought it looked cool.

Tires and Trash

Just a big pile of tires around a dumpster that I came across one day while wandering through Vancouver. Yep, it’s not all glass towers full of snobs with credit card debt.

Bicycle in Gion Alley

Gion is a historic Geisha district in Kyoto. Its narrow streets and traditional buildings make it a uniquely charming area of an already charming city. Tourists and locals alike can be seen roaming the neighborhood in elaborate kimonos which are […]

Nijo Castle – Kyoto, Japan

Permalink to Nijo Castle – Kyoto, Japan By Jonathan | Published December 5, 2017

Nijo Castle was probably one of the more awe-inspiring places we visited while in Japan. It just happens to have been the home of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the last Shogun of Japan. I know him better as his fictionalized version, Toranaga, […]
