my shot today of a sculpture titled: meeting, by artist wang shugans. the light was low/ i was returning home from a walk to chinatown. i shot many variations / this was my choice. you can see more about this installation at the vancouver biennale 2009 site.

today was foggy, then sunny, then foggy......... perfect for shooting in the forest. right now, this is one of my favorites.


this is an art installation at enghish bay called A-Maze-ing Laughter, by Yue Minjun of China. it seems very popular / tons of photos taken here.

blast from the past

i haven't been by the train station in vancouver for decades. we use to pass thru this building on a regular basis, spending the holidays in vancouver, via the rails, from saskatchewan. it seemed 'bigger' when you're 6 or 8 years old......... but i like this shot.

cambie hotel

i hooked up with a few old friends, and some new ones, at the cambie hotel last night. its the type of place that reminds one of a prairie bar. there was conversation about photography, particularly documentive. so in that spirit, this is my version of capturing the street. reminds me of early days shooting the zoo in oxbow... on main.. (sans traffic).

i followed this little fella around lost lagoon in stanley park for awhile today. he kept diving on me, but i got this shot when it was time for a breath of fresh air. i like the simplicity of the image.

man's best friend

when i was shooting in the park last night, a friend i met last winter happened by with his canine companion. the light was fading fast, so asked them if they would pose quickly for a portrait.

lions gate bridge

i've always hoped i would be under the lions gate bridge when a big ship was steaming by (with a camera, as opposed to sleeping). so i was happy with the first image. i thought i'd try for a secondary shot. i like the second one the best. it would be great to get your opinions/choices. looking forward to your comments. thxs.

vancouver bc

2 shots from coal harbour tonight. one for you, and one for me.

stanley park

i went for a walk in the park, and shot some of nature's art. i'll call this series 'the ice of stanley park'.

i know it's a little chilly in the hinterland right now, so this may not suit your eye. maybe our neighbors to the south will enjoy...

introducing the roaming red rocker

some of you may remember a little series i did called "the roaming yaris". well, turns out she wasn't really a country girl, so my brother adopted her, and now she's in the city where she belongs. (i bought a truck).

so now, i have started a new series called "the roaming red rocker". i wanted the first shot to be a killer, so this is what i came up with. unfortunately, i will be leaving for the coast shortly, so the series will start in earnest next spring. this is my choice for the 'teaser'. let me know if you agree, or if you like any of the others.

rock on! roaming red rocker.......

looking for the moon

this is an impromptu portrait of my friends daughter. it was a quiet november eve, and the half moon was high in the big saskatchewan sky. for fun, i formatted as if an album cover.

molly's house

i went to the country today, and hooked up with friends on their farm. at last light, i had the camera out, and shot some portraits. on the way back to the house, i saw molly the dog go into her warm happy home. i fired of a few quick frames. i like the moment.
