Wooly Bully

Most of my Saturday was spent south of the city taking pictures in the country, on a very hot day (about 35 degrees), starting at about noon til 8pm.  This fine specimen seemed like he wanted to model for me (I was across the… Continue Reading “Wooly Bully”

Sunset Silhouettes @ English Bay

English Bay in Vancouver is one of my favourite places. These shots are from a beautiful Friday evening in June where it seemed like everyone was just happy to be outside enjoying the longest day of the year, watching the sunset at English Bay. … Continue Reading “Sunset Silhouettes @ English Bay”

Sir Paul McCartney at Mosaic Stadium

Last night was a pretty fantastic night in the Queen City.  Sir Paul McCartney was in town and played to a sold-out Mosaic Stadium (I think that was the final word – there was some debate beforehand why it didn’t sell-out sooner).  I’m not… Continue Reading “Sir Paul McCartney at Mosaic Stadium”

Flash Gordon

The summer I was 11 or 12 I watched Flash Gordon on HBO probably 10 times.  It’s still in my top ten of favourite movies.  The soundtrack by Queen is awesome, the writing and acting is so bad it’s good, and I had such… Continue Reading “Flash Gordon”

dahlias three ways

Did you know that dahlias are the national flower of Mexico? I don’t remember seeing any dahlias in Puerto Vallarta in March, but then again I don’t think I took any flower pictures there.  It was more about eating good food, sticking my toes… Continue Reading “dahlias three ways”
