Unknown Frozen Lake

If you look closely in the large version, you'll see a tiny line in the top left 1/3 of the shot. That's what a human track looks like from a few thousand feet above.

Garibaldi Ice Field

Not sure what to say, but it was a pretty amazing day :)

Worth a click to see large


It was a good day to be flying ... and a good day to be taking photos :)

Alex Fraser at night

I'm still not quite sure how much I enjoy light trails, but I find the image of the bridge haunting.

Something else from the recent fog :)

English Bay Inukshuk

I think this is one of those key examples that 1) The camera doesn't matter and 2) that what matters is that you _have_ a camera when it counts.

I was out for a little 'urban assault' mountain biking and happened to have my Casio ex-z750 on me. And I'm glad I did :)

It's worth one more click.

Lone photographer watching the watertaxi

Shot during the Dec 21st 2008 snow storm. The film is expired "Blacks Photography" which explains the 'run' of the colours around the perforations.

I don't know why, but I like this image. When viewed large it almost seems "Monet-esque" to me. The snow was so heavy it created the "blob like" effect.

I've had this sitting around for a while. But I still enjoy it so I thought I'd post it up.

Into the mists

Shot during one of the snow storms from Dec 2008.

Hard to appreciate unless you see it large :)

Canonet Test shots

From the first roll I put through the little Canonet QL17 GIII

The lens is nice and sharp.
The meter gives a reading accurate enough for negative film.
The shutter functions properly.
So the camera works! :)

Not bad for $35.

Feeding the ducks

Shot at

I was mostly shooting TX400 (which will take a bit to develop) but I also shot a few photos with my point & shoot.

To say you can get close to the ducks is a bit of an understatement ;)

Ducks grande!

Urban Living

I've been going through some older shots.

I still like this one, so I decided I might as well post it :)

Freeeee money!

The Theater of the Real

Shot on my road trip last summer. With a bit of editing I like it :)

Canonet QL17 GIII

a.k.a. _another_ film camera?

I guess I've been thinking more about film lately than digital. It's fun, I shoot less and think more. I'm not sure if the results are ultimately better, but it's changing the way I shoot and that's a good thing IMO.

And rangefinders are all in vogue, so I thought I'd see what all the fuss is about.

Well, I can't tell yet besides that it's quiet and smaller. Not small by today's standards, but smaller than a D300 by a long shot. And smaller than my FM's by a fair bit.

We'll see how I like it... well first I have to confirm that it works anywhere near properly. So I've started putting a test roll through it. We shall see.

Wish me luck!

Street Silhouette

I enjoy photographing these doors. Even when I have to sit in a snow covered street, blind to traffic because I'm waiting for someone to walk into the frame ... in just the right way :)

Why not go all the way?

Kitsilano Alley

Shot during some of the recent fog (which had faded as I walked back towards my apartment).
