One from the archives as I’ve been too busy to shoot much in the last week. Have a stack of film to process tonight though so, will have some new stuff soon enough.
Here Arnaud utilizes the natural contours of a stump in Strathcona combined with the flexible souls of his Chuck Taylors to find a steady shooting position. This type of advanced thinking is typical for him.
Simon Saw Stuff on Flickr.
It was a pleasure meeting Simon when he visited in September. Nice guy and wonderful photographer, be sure to check his work out, including this wonderful portrait he happened to capture of local punk rock survivor and legend Chi Pig. Simon had no idea he was a celebrity photographer!
This is the rear view of Vancouver’s second oldest house at 502 Alexander Street, built just two years after Vancouver’s founding.
The last house remaining on the block but, sadly, due to some poor renovations done in the 50’s, it is unstable and the non-profit organization who owns it and the building next door can’t afford to remedy that.
It’s quite likely that, despite the best intentions of the owners, it will need to be torn down. It’s gathering a fair profile in the media, hopefully the money can be found to restore this piece of our history.
Photographers seeking unique viewpoint. on Flickr.
Had a lovely afternoon on Sunday wandering about through the underbelly of Vancouver with good friend Will and new arrival Arnaud, who was nice enough to let me play with his Zuiko OM 18mm f/3.5, a real gem of a lens.
Fun was had, silver halides were exposed for what they are and we ended up with a few pints on what may well have been the last summery Sunday of the year.
Would that this were my footprint on Flickr.
As I sit chained to my desk, slaving in the code mines. Oh well, at least I’m not missing any sunny weather.
Seen early in the morning on a much nicer, lazier day on Stanley Park’s Third beach.

Technical Difficulties on Flickr.
Probably the low point of the SummerLive festival in Stanley Park this past weekend was when the giant robotic snake broke down.
No worries though, the crack technicians from eatArt had Titanoboa back up and running in no time at all and the festival was saved!
Bollywood Birthday Party @ #SummerLive on Flickr.
One of the highlights to this past weekend’s SummerLive festival in Stanley Park was the Bollywood Birthday Party, a live Bollywood style play that raced here and there throughout Brockton Point for each act, avid watchers racing after them at each stop. What a blast and, a solid performance by all as well.
Here, the bridal party shows their stuff.
