Robot Park

Sunday, March 7th, 2010

There’s a great huge park down the road from our place, Rocky Point Park.   Part of it is a superb youth hangout skateboard park which my kid just loves to run around in.  He insists I buy him a skateboard for his upcoming 3rd birthday, that’ll be a hoot.  I plan on letting him pick out the deck and whatever else can be customized.

Last summer this mural went up on the side of the building facing the skate park, I love it, and finally had a chance under a nice cloudy cover to take some shots.

There’s no snow here in Vancouver, just bare naked trees.

Top of the World

A snapshot from the top of the Shangri-la Hotel in downtown Vancouver. This is the highest building in Canada West of Calgary, which still isn’t all that tall compared to other skyscrapers. Still, the view is pretty damned spectacular!

Just a couple of photos from around the garden at the wife’s parent’s place.  My mother in law has quite the impressive garden.

What have I done!

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008


I sold my camera, my beloved Olympus SP-550UZ is now gone. Hopefully I did the right thing. I loved that camera, it took some great photos and never let me down. But, I thought I’d get more use out of a waterproof, drop-proof one, so I’m on the hunt. My eye is on another Olympus, this time the 1030SW.

Shrunken Porsches

Here’s a link to one of my favourite projects from awhile back, using Photoshop on some regular Porsche photos to turn them all into miniatures.

Xterra Archives

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

I guess its time to spend a few minutes reposting some of the posts I had on the old site. I just uploaded my 22 favourite Xterra photos from the old days. I still miss that truck … not at the gas pump though. The Yaris trumps it soundly in that department.

You can see all the photos by clicking this image:

Flickr-ing

Monday, August 25th, 2008

Alrighty then, since I’m going to ditch my personal Plone server and move everything to the public cloud, I gotta upload all my images to Flickr and get the tags and stuff sorted out. This blog will simply be a jumping point to the photo sets there.
