Bit Big

She was trying to tire her dog out so it would calm down :)

Tasty Details, just click

Digging out

I'm still working my way through my 'snow images'.

This was taken on a lunch-time walk through Kits.

Some things simply are better in greater detail

View Christmas morning

I'm not sure if I like portrait or landscape orientations better.

Lunchtime walk

I worked from home today (too much snow & no snowplow till about 5 pm) and went out at lunch to find some food.

Took a little walk around to shoot a couple of snow scenes.

Cross-country Beach

Cross country skiing on the beach. What more is there to say? :)

Except: See it large and on Black

Volleyball Umbrella

I took a 2 hour walk today and it was a great time. I shot with my Casio EX-Z750 in a water poof bag and my FM2n. The water on the lenses / covers from the blowing snow created some interesting effects.

Happy Winter Solstice :)

Evil hoodie 'Peoplescape'

I've recently been introduced to the concept of the 'peoplescape' (think "landscape" ... but with people).

I ran across this as I'm reviewing some old photos. And again, I like it better now than when I originally shot it, mostly because it is different. And sometimes, different is good no matter what anyone says.

B&W Skyline

From July. But I still liked it and had never posted it.

This is the way. Really.

Outdoors - both ways?!

Despite still fighting with this nasty cold, I went for a little walk this afternoon. I found this quite interesting, hope you do too.

Seriously better large

After Sunset

Taken on Burnaby mountain. All the other 'photographers' had packed up. I was still freezing and waited.

And tried very hard not to blow out my red channel.


Oh and if you don't like red, you probably won't like this very much ;)

This one you really should see large and on black.

Poplars 3

Another shot from when I was in Horsefly in September

The other side of the tracks

I'm really enjoying the look I'm getting with the FM2n and the expired Kodak Tmax.

The move away from the 'perfect image' towards accepting the flaws in each of the B&W images, is somehow very liberating.

Sounds very artsy. But happens to be true non-the-less.

Shoot with what you got

Sometimes it's more important to have something that can take a photo, than it is to have expensive gear.

I shot the following out the side window of the car with my cell phone while waiting at a light.

... and I'm actually happy with the outcome :)

Expired Film

I had a roll of expired 'Black Photography' given to me and I tried to make the most of it (it had only been expired since 2001 ... ;) )

"A sign of the times?"

I just love the tones on this...

"Urban Sunflowers"

"Tall Grass"


"One more or less"


"? It's not our election..."

"Fountain 1"

"Fountain 2"

"Afternoon paddle"

Thanks for looking :)

Some more film

Nelson, BC - Abandoned rail-yard


Paul and I got together on Saturday to develop some more film and to print.

I'm hoping to be able to get the negatives scanned in sometime soon. In the meantime I was able to borrow a scanner (thanks Michelle!) and scan the prints. Both are from Jerry and my road trip this summer.

The Cascades 1

The Cascades 2

both shot on expired Kodak T-Max 100.

The process of making the pints was quite interesting and I did enjoy it. I'm not sure that I would have the patience to develop my own prints consistently, but every now and then is definitely fun.

Hope you are having a good weekend.

Lunch Ride

Took the opportunity to go for a little ride at lunch.

November-noon Sun

At the end of the day, what matters is that you have a camera with you.

Army & Navy walk

OK, so really Army & Navy wasn't the initial destination (and there are no photos of it here, so don't get too excited), but I did end up there and bought the cheapest pair of jeans ever ($9.99!). But that's neither here nor there so on with the photos.


Still Fall

Bland in the most vivid way


Gender-Bender West-Ender?


Two left legs

Creepy dude in window checking out the girl next to me (at least I hope that's what it was... Yikes)

Two cameras

Did I mention I don't like hair



Floating in space

Still not too cold

Princess Leia hair -- strike that -- Ears!

Toes on the nose!

Quite a productive little walk :)

Hope you had a good Saturday.
