Post No Bills (please?)

Post No Bills (please?)

Taken in Vancouver, Canada back in May, 2008. Utility poles all over Yaletown were covered in staples. I figure the staples have many stories to tell and when the alien overlords or religious figures descend, those stories will entertain our great-great-grandchildren....
Crisses and Crosses

Crisses and Crosses

Taken in the Yaletown neighborhood, Vancouver, Canada. I am rarely satisfied with trying to take or make an image monochromatic. This one, however, I could probably do an entire series of various tones and be really satisfied. Here’s to satisfaction. Share...
Purple Sea

Purple Sea

I took about a dozen different shots at different angles trying to get this one just right. I never really caught it like I wanted to. This one comes close. The sad twig hanging down is pretty good, but it kind of gets lost in the background. The purple are tiny...
Last Night in Vancouver

Last Night in Vancouver

Our last night in Vancouver, I caught this sign. For some reason, it reminds me of Amsterdam. I don’t know if it’s the typeface, the crescent, the colors or the notion of a lounge and a grill. Can you think of two better things? Lounging and grilling?...

I remember seeing these in 2005 when we were last in Vancouver. I was struck by the typography of the initials as being mid-Bauhaus and really cool. I’ve got a few more from the trip this week. We’ve done so much travel that I have a backlog of photos to...
Granville Island Skull

Granville Island Skull

This image is exactly what I’ve felt like the past few days as I’ve watched the server get a ton of comments. My brain has been going OFF. This was taken on Granville Island, May 2008, while walking down to the marketplace to buy awesome fruits and coffee....

Brougham Cutlass Supreme

Took this up in Vancouver, Canada on my walk through Yaletown. Every time I see one of these I can’t help but think of Cedric The Entertainer’s bit about the “Bro-Ham”. I think it’s Cedric. Or maybe it’s your mom. Either way, sweet...
Stonehenge Lite

Stonehenge Lite

This was taken near Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia. I felt a deep need to chant and perform some pagan rituals. My druidic tendencies were satiated, albeit briefly, by the beauty of the stones. There was no time portal/event horizon. Even with the...
The Beat 94.5 FM Hit Music

The Beat 94.5 FM Hit Music

Taken at Georgia and Howe. The lens flare is all lens. No Photoshop. I dig on the light placement and the fact that at night, you can actually read the street signs. Great usability. Sadly, I did not get a chance to check out the radio station. Share...
Crane

Crane

Found this guy posing it up as I was wandering around downtown Vancouver. I love the crazy angles. The lens makes this crane look much taller than it was in real life. I don’t know why I feel so compelled to share that. Share...
