Just barely clinging on on Flickr.
Kinda how I’ve been feeling these last couple weeks. Very busy preparing all sorts of exciting new stuff that should’ve been released today but, will have to wait until early next week now because, well, it’s just gotta be perfect.
Very excited by what I’ve been cooking up. Stay tuned!
A developing sense of scale on Flickr.
The controversial development at Davie and Bidwell is well under way now. All but the Facade of West End landmark Maxine’s, a former brothel and bawdy house built in 1905, have been torn down and the pit is dug for the new 21 story building that will replace it.
Now, I’m all in favour of densification and, the foot of Davie Street remains quite under developed. The restaurants, insurance agents and green grocer that lined this stretch of Davie Street always seemed like a severe under-utilzation of the space and, all struggled to survive as well, changing regularly.
Looking at the size of this pit, compared to the lovely old Sands Motel across the street though and, one has to wonder if this is indeed the right choice for the location.
Personally, I’ll miss the building that formerly held the green grocer on the corner. Briefly, in 1990, the building was home to a lovely café where my continuing addiction to and love affair with espresso began.
Because Jeff Complained… on Flickr.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled shots of Trajan walking, running, climbing things and generally being adorable. This time, with Mom outside the Gulf of Georgia Cannery at Steveston Village. Consider your complaint noted and responded, Jeff. Case closed. ;-)
Rolleiflex Automat, Kodak Portra 800-2. Seriously loving this film but, it would not be an option on a sunny day, what with the effective 1/250th of a second top speed on my Automat. It does have 1/500th as well but, that clocked out at 1/275 when I last had it overhauled so, it might as well not exist on the dial!
Some Lovely Flowers on Flickr.
Just to prove that I can indeed still point the camera at scenes that don’t include Trajan. ;-)
Steveston Village, Richmond. Rolleiflex Automat, Kodak Porta 800-2. This film scans beautifully, this image has only been sharpened, otherwise straight off the scanner!
