Pre-Dawn on White Rock Pier

Pre-dawn on the pier in White Rock, BC. Overcast and rain meant no great color in the sky, but there was some contrast if you waited for it.

Vancouver's False Creek Dreamscape, Orton Effect

Processed in the manner of Michael Orton's "Orton Effect", this is a early evening image looking across False Creek towards BC Place stadium and Yaletown, the trendy community area in Vancouver's downtown core. If you examine the fine details of the image you can see items such as individual screws and nails in the boardwalk planks, and even the ghost images of a couple of pedestrians strolling the rail.

Curious Cow

This curious fella found me as I was attempting to capture an image of a little red barn that is directly behind him. I must have been one of the few people to wander down this isolated road during the day because I sure attracted his attention, though my camera and lens were able to escape without a lick.

Bose Family Farm

I passed this family farm for nearly a decade before I was became aware of its heritage in the area. This photo is of the lower barn, constructed in the 1930's; the original barns from the beginning of the 20th century still stood on the upper portion of the farm when I made this image.  These buildings were in an incredible state of dis-repair, however the lower farm has been redeveloped for condos and homes, and the main structure was considerably rebuilt around 2015 as a common building for the property.

The Hands of the Craftsman

While in Vancouver's Gastown district, I met this native carver who makes inukshuk stone carvings for the tourist trade, and I was captivated by the texture of his hard-working hands.
