I believe these were the first two photos I shot when I arrived in Beijing. They were taken in the neighbourhood surrounding the hotel I stayed in.
In case you haven’t heard, RETO recently announced that they are (re)releasing the Ultra Wide & Slim camera. After reading the recent coverage by Emulsive and Kosmo Foto, I decided that I need to share my review of this iconic little camera. This is one of my favourite cameras and I take it with me […]
These are from a day I spent driving around West Vancouver. Some are from Ambleside Park and some from Lighthouse Park.
I was quite thrilled to discover a “duck crossing” sign when visiting Tauranga, New Zealand. Sarah and I took a walk one afternoon around this lake and true to form, I spotted some ducks crossing the road. While I understand why they would cross the road to get to the lake, I have no idea […]
With the recently announced return of LomoChrome Turquoise, I thought I might post a few photos and share my thoughts on this color-shifting emulsion. Of all Lomography films, this one has the wildest color palette. This is not a film for the faint of heart. If you prefer natural or even saturated colors, you will […]
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 […]
Sarah and I took a bicycle tour around the Yangshuo countryside when we were in China. It was a spectacular day and we had a lot of fun. I shot these with my Superheadz Ultra Wide & Slim loaded with B&W film. I would have prefered colour film, but that was all I had with […]
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.
Last summer, Sarah and I decided to rollerblade the Stanley Park Seawall while we were in Vancouver visiting family.
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 […]
