We took an overnight train from Shanghai to Xi’an to see the Terracotta Warriors. There was very little privacy on the overnight train. Compartments had six berths and an open doorway to the corridor. We shared our compartment with a university student and a lovely Chinese family. In fact, there were many families with young […]
Sarah and I took a bicycle tour through the countryside of Yangshuo. But to get to the bicycle rental shop, we had to first walk through a rather sketchy underground parking lot before emerging on the other side in an alley where I took these photos.
On my first trip to New Zealand, Sarah took me to Skyline Luge in Rotorua. It was my first time downhill karting and we had a lot of fun that day. Sarah grew up in Rotorua so imagine her surprise when she discovered that Skyline Luge was also here in Calgary at COP. You can’t […]
Sarah and I took a walk along Vancouver’s Jericho Beach last summer. The haze in the background is from BC forest fires.

Whenever I’m back home on the coast, I try to sneak in a hike or two while visiting family. These were taken during a hike through Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. I like to hike a few of the lesser used trails (fewer tourists) and my favourite leads to Starboat Cove. I snapped these with […]
When I was in France this summer, I took along a roll of Lomography’s LomoChrome Turquoise XR 100-400 35mm film. LomoChrome Turquoise is modelled after Lomography’s LomoChrome Purple film which in turn is modelled after Kodak Aerochrome (this post by The Phoblographer explains it all). LomoChrome Turquoise produces some wild color shifts, but it isn’t […]
Here are another two photos from Ralph Klein Park shot with my Superheadz Ultra Wide & Slim. When I got this roll back from the lab, I discovered some weird double exposures on the film. I have no idea how it happened except that it must have already been present on the film when I […]
I had heard so much about the Ultra Wide & Slim (UWS) that when I bought one I was both excited and disappointed. Vivitar made the original Ultra Wide & Slim camera that rose to cult status. Superheadz from Japan makes clones in many different colours. But just because they are clones doesn’t mean that […]
