Colors of citrus

my baby is one!

somewhere there’s sun. acclimatizing to where there’s none.

somewhere there's sun.  acclimatizing to where there's none.

rainy old vancouver.  it’s just a degree or two over what would turn this wet darkness into a winter wonderland.  but, no, it’s vancouver… so it’s rain all the way. with the blinding time travel of planes and cars, the disorientating mash up of time zones and the massive acclimatization that has been happening this […]

they come in numbers

they come in numbers

i want to say so much – the experience fired synapses that set off emotional gasps of wonder. the size… the size of some of them… hundreds of pounds. but perhaps, in this case, the pictures will speak louder than words. nature.  beauty.  the world, doing what it does.  mysterious ways. leatherback turtles, maui.


mary & jonathon

mary & jonathon

what a sweet couple.  so mellow, so laid back, so willing to do anything… like climb rock walls sneak into compounds.  mary and jonathon had a beautiful little ceremony in kapalua and we jetted down to one of my favourite spots for some quick shots.  colin came along and added some flair to their snare.  […]

polaroid love.

for the last year, i’ve been flipping back to the past, diving into polaroid love.  the whole year in polaroids – from the beginning of the new decade, to the olympics, to the beautiful bc summer, to burning man, to the pumping maui swells – it’s been such an interesting ride through my new friends, […]

having a laugh

festivities from the celebration of this wonderful new year have finally begun to settle down.  reality of what 2011 really means is just about hitting us now.  decorations are taken down, the dump is piled high with trees that once sparkled in our eyes while anticipation and mystery cloaked our excitement.  party hats and empty […]


awake my soul – mumbles and jumbles.

i haven’t really had much to say lately.  i write notes to myself to spark some sort of philosophical debate – they get posted all over my room and my books and my computer… but then they lose their sticky and fall out of my sight… and i get distracted with my enormous workload of […]
