Sorry. I’ve been shooting a wedding for some friends out in Newfoundland, so I haven’t been as good at updating this web page as I normally am. Also, I now have a ton of photos to process, and my brother’s dag to pet. I’ll do my best~

I have a bit of  strong opinion on art – it has to say something. Banksy is amazing at this. When you look at his pieces, you’re never confused about what he’s saying. When you look at a Picasso, it might be a bit more complicated. Some of his work is immediately accessible and you can feel immediately what he […]

One thing I don’t generally enjoy doing is commenting on people’s bicycles. One thing I don’t generally do in public is comment on stranger’s bicycles. We’re bicyclists, how can we not comment about other people’s bikes, especially trash talking our friends for their silly choices? But this guy? He’s doing it so right that I couldn’t help but comment. Solid […]

How many Japanese People does it take to unscrew 10,000 lightbulbs?

This is workers at Yasukuni shrine after a festival. Every one of those strands was the innards of a lantern that had been hanging during the matsuri, with the names of the donors who had paid to have their names written on them. And now that the matsuri’s over, someone has to go and unscrew all those lightbulbs. I wonder […]

Bursting out of the Ground

Shiraito Falls is awesome. It’s a waterfall with no river. Kinda. There’s a small cliff, exposing the different geological strata, and there’s something about the strata that means the water that has soaked into the mountain and been filtered through the earth comes gushing out of the mountain near the top of the cliff. It’s much more dramatic and beautiful […]

You’ll hear photographers say it all the time – ugly light, beautiful light, dramatic light, washed out light, diffused light….. Really, we’ll talk your ear off about light if you give us the slightest of openings. Because it’s really the light that matters.

I went to Ale’s house, finally. A couple years back, my friend wanted to visit Matsumoto castle. It was on her list of things to do before she left Japan because it bears her family name. At the time, I declined to join her on her adventure – and I think perhaps it was the right choice. Matsumoto castle is […]
