Catching Up on Flickr.
Just before life went all bonkers at the end of March, I was fortunate enough to be able to shoot Compaigni V’ni Dansi performing as part of the Coastal First Nations Dance Festival at the Museum of Anthropology.
It was a great show and, finally, life has settled down to a dull roar and I was able to actually get the shots edited.

Now, I don’t get out to UBC much so am always stumbling across interesting buildings when I do. On Sunday, I was on my way to the Museum of Anthropology to shoot a performance in the Coastal First Nations Dance Festival when this marvellous structure caught my eye. How could I have missed such a stunning (and large) modernist installation as this for almost 25 years? I took note and stopped to investigate further after the show.
Well, imagine my surprise when google revealed that I missed this previously because it’s relatively new!
Pavillion is a remodelling of the courtyard of the Buchanan Block that was just completed recently (looks like just last year from the article). What a splendid thing!
Skinning the White Whale on Flickr.
Work is already well underway on the massive remodelling of the former Eaton’s building at Georgia and Granville.
While spared the dynamiting that this life sucking behemoth most definitely deserves, the finished project will be a great improvement over the famous ‘toilet’ with all of it’s white cladding replaced with glass. Once completed, it will be home to a Nordstrom’s.
Just two wild and crazy guys at a swing party. Despite appearances, they were actually having a grand old time. Trajan’s mate Tycho is part of our exclusive club of toddlers named for significant but not particularly well known figures in history. Their good friend Linnaeus wasn’t along on this day.
Introducing Fred on Flickr.
Nyana goes way back. The Emperor’s oldest friend, they even had a date on their first Christmas, the first time either of them had seen another kid.
Here she is, introducing her new baby brother Fred, just seven days old at this point. They’re already pretty tight.
Limbs of the Stars on Flickr.
Renaissance man and good friend Stephen Lyons belts one out at the CD Release for the debut album of his combo ‘Limbs of the Stars’: heartwarmongering at the Rickshaw last Friday evening.
It was, as they say, one hell of a show. They’re one hell of a band, 40% or so of the Juno Award winning ‘Fond of Tigers’ with Shanto Acharia on bass, and Skye Brooks on drums.

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!
Autumn Looks Best Backlit on Flickr.
Making it such a shame that we usually get so little sun during Autumn on the coast.
Also, I had forgotten what lovely stuff Fuji Reala is. Fortunately, it’s still available in 120. Straight scan with just a wee bit of sharpening.
Luddite Wars on Flickr.
Owing to the unfortunate rush hour incident at the corner of Georgia and Burrard involving the mules I hired to pull my darkroom, I must in this instance concede the match to Bill (nsfw) with his 6x9 Speed Graphic.
Touché Bill. I’ll be along to reclaim my title soon.
