A Sort of Homecoming

A Sort of Homecoming

Taken by Heather on our trip to Vancouver in May, 2008. I was too overcome with joy and other complex, dare I say, foreign emotions to take a decent shot of this place. I’ve been looking for ages for men’s size 13 Birkenstock rubber clogs. I love my Crocs,...
Dumpster with Juice and Shoes

Dumpster with Juice and Shoes

Vancouver is a very clean city. At least the parts of it I saw. I couldn’t resist jumping down an alley to shoot this very out of place, leaky dumpster. As I tried to get right with the light, I discovered these shoes, placed perfectly. I didn’t touch the...
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...
Vogu

Vogu

I love the light in the sky. And I like shooting with the 50mm lens. It removes the dickery that happens with a zoom lens and forces composition. Maybe I like it because the lens makes me work a little harder? I can’t remember the neighborhood we were in when I...
Ominous Night

Ominous Night

I should probably just attribute this shot to reading too much Edgar Allan Poe or too many Hitchcock anthologies as a kid. Or maybe too many Anne Rice vampire books. I should have put some bats coming off the building. Or maybe just Meat Loaf as a bat. Bat Loaf? Share...
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....
