This is Bow Valley Ranch in Fish Creek Park. Once the residence of William Roper Hull, who commissioned this two-story gable-roofed mansion in 1896, it is now a restaurant in Fish Creek Park. The other wooden building is Annie’s Cafe which was once the farmhouse of ranch foreman Billy Banister and his eponymous wife Annie. […]
Sarah & I travelled to China a few years ago. These photos are from a day we spent in Chengdu. On an overcast day, we visited People’s Park, rowed a boat on the lake, watched an elderly man write poetry on the pavement with water, visited the Wenshu Monastery, and watched with averse fascination as […]
These photos are from a photography workshop I took 5 years ago. We spent a morning with a few amateur models, wandering around downtown and snapping photos in various locations. These were shot in front of Coppeneur Chocolatier.
These are from my second trip to New Zealand. Sarah and I spent a day wandering around Auckland’s waterfront. I remember we had some amazing ice cream at Island Gelato in the Ferry Building.
Over the years, I have steadily come to look upon my Lomography Belair X 6-12 Jetsetter camera with growing disappointment. My disenchantment with the Belair rests upon two chief complaints: The plastic lenses are terrible. They are quite soft, especially along the edges, and the photos are often out of focus—rarely in a good way. […]
I shot these tractors 5 years ago at the Coyote Flats Pioneer Village. They easily have over 100 tractors and I think I spent most of my time with just these three, ha ha.
These photos were shot on the overnight train to Xi’an. This lovely family, with whom we shared our compartment, spent part of the day putting together a puzzle on their bottom bunk.
From time to time, I will take self-portraits. Often it’s because I have no idea of what to photograph. I’m easily bored of photographing the same subjects and locations over and over again. There are only so many times that I can visit the same places and vary the point of view or use a […]
These photos are from Il Giardino Italiano, my favourite part of Hastings Park. The garden features many beautiful fountains and the ‘Opera Walk’ is a hidden gem. I hope to visit the park again the next time I’m back in Vancouver.
These photos are of the Vimy Memorial, Canada’s monument to the 60,000 Canadian soldiers who gave their lives in France and to all those who served in World War I. The memorial sits on Vimy Ridge which Canadian soldiers captured at great cost. The scale of the memorial is amazing. Two towers of white limestone, […]
These photos are of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. The titanium-clad Guggenheim Museum was designed by Canadian-American Architect Frank Gehry and it is probably his most famous work. The Guggenheim houses a large collection of modern and contemporary art including a few pieces that are on display outside the museum building. Visible in the […]
I shot these in Yangshuo, China while doing some river rafting. This was a very touristy thing to do as I’m sure you can tell from the photos. But it was a lot of fun! There were hundreds of boats on the river. Most of them were of the bamboo raft variety. They each seat […]
These are the roots of a tree outside the Reunification Palace in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
I picked up this mysterious film, Mr. Zhu 100, on eBay. It’s so mysterious that the seller himself didn’t even know much about it, including its name. So, in the absence of a name, he chose to name it after his Hong Kong shipping partner, Mr. Zhu. Intrigued by a new rare film, especially one […]
