This is the Jericho Sailing Centre on Jericho Beach in Vancouver. Many years ago, I had an awesome summer job working here with a summer school program for children with disabilites. It was two weeks of sailing, kayaking, rowing, and just hanging out at the beach! The students were great fun and they loved every […]
I shot these pinhole panoramas on JCH Street Pan 400 using a homemade pinhole lens I mounted on my Belair Jetsetter for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day 2020.
This is the view looking north across Burrard Inlet from Prospect Point at Stanley Park in Vancouver. The first two photos feature the Lions Gate Bridge which was built in the 1930’s by the Guiness family (the same family responsible for the eponymous Irish stout), while the last photo is of Ambleside Beach in West […]
I shot these from the balcony of my hotel on my first visit to Auckland. As I was enjoying the view one morning, I started to notice all the interesting things happening below me and had to snap a few photos.
These photographs are from the Bretteville-sur-Laize Canadian War Cemetery at Cintheaux in Normandy, France. In 2015 I attended a memorial ceremony here in honour of the Canadians who fought and died during the Battle of Normandy. The first two photos show the many attendees including a few visiting dignitaries. If you look in the background […]
A fun thing I like about hiking is that you often discover interesting art and weird things in the woods. These photos are from a winter camping trip I took with students years ago.
These photos were taken at the Wintergardens in Auckland, NZ. Sarah and I spent a quiet afternoon wandering around the Wintergardens and Auckland Domain. It was an absolutely beautiful and incredibly hot day and I remember we enjoyed an ice cream in the shade of a tree.
These two photos of a flock of sheep were taken on Sarah’s parents’ farm. They have since sold the farm. I’m not sure what happened to the sheep.
These are the last of my photos from my exploration of New Zealand’s Queen Charlotte Sound by air, sea and land. Motuara Island is home to the Little penguin and there are many man-made nesting boxes scattered throughout the island for their use. Each nesting box has a lid that you can flip open to […]
These photos from Motuara Island are from a weekend where Sarah and I explored New Zealand’s Queen Charlotte Sound by air, sea and land. Historically, Motuara Island is the location where, in 1770, Captain James Cook and his officers raised the British flag and claimed New Zealand for the use of the British Empire. Today, […]
In 2019, when Sarah and I were in China, we had the opportunity to visit a tea plantation in Emeishan. Patrick, our guide, drove us to the home of an old high school friend who was the owner of a tea plantation. Upon arriving, we were kitted out with traditional Chinese conical hats, tea baskets […]
These are all from the day I proposed to Sarah. We went horseback riding from Lake Louise up to the Lake Agnes Teahouse and I nervously carried the engagement ring in my pocket all day. In the end, I did not propose at Lake Agnes (too many people and no privacy) and instead proposed to […]
Over the years, I’ve shot a lot of photos at Union Cemetery. Most of the old headstones were made from sandstone and they have not stood the test of time. Sandstone is a very soft sedimentary stone and it is a poor match for Calgary’s climate. These photos were taken with LomoChrome Purple film and […]
