Idea Spark is now available!

Hi.  I’m David the software engineer.  Yes, this is the same David that normally posts here, but at the moment I am wearing my software engineer hat.  Since this website focuses on photography, I don’t don this hat much here.  It is a conscious choice to keep my web presences separated for clarity’s sake; even so, these skills constantly support each other in my day-to-day work.  When developing a website, I can …

The Crooked Brothers

After months on the road, The Crooked Brothers threw a homecoming party at the West End Cultural Centre a couple Fridays ago.  Oh, and they also were celebrating the release of their new album: “Thank You I’m Sorry.”  Take it from me, you should check it out: it’s streaming here.

The place was packed.  Seats were claimed quickly, so the latecomers made themselves comfortable lounging on the floor; until it quickly turned into a dance floor that

#ExploreMB Book – now available.

Flipping through a fresh-off-the-presses copy of the #ExploreMB book.

About a month ago, I was contacted by Travel Manitoba to be part of a book they were putting together to highlight truly Manitoba moments.  My contribution: Folk Fest memories!

Last week, I was pleasantly surprised to find a copy in my mailbox – the final product looks great and I’m happy to see so many friends’ work featured as well!  Flipping through it on this dreary December day, I …

The road to California – Part 6: Familiar territory.

(continued from Part 5: Coast)

Covering so many miles, seeing so many new things, constantly exploring places you didn’t know existed…a road trip is certainly an adventure.  Like all good adventures though, the rewards come with an exhaustion that slowly builds up.  There is a sort of comfort in the familiar; a quiet sense of permission that it’s ok to relax – that you don’t need to constantly be active.  Coming full circle and now retracing our…

The road to California – Part 5: Coast.

(continued from Part 4: Land of the Giants)

Winnipeg, the starting point for this whole journey, is located at almost the exact center of North America – pretty much as far from any ocean as you can get.  At this point in the trip, to roll over yet another hill and see the endless blue horizon stretch out across the sky was quite the milestone.  Crossing California’s dry interior, we reached the refreshing sea air just a bit north of Los Angeles.  …

    Sweet life, David! Maybe you want to make a guest appearance as a computer science teacher with that history of yours, and I’ll head out west to take some pictures? Just a little tradesies for a bit?ReplyCancel

    I may be in that place before you know it Kay! I’m actually dabbling in some education education right now. And no, that’s not a typo.ReplyCancel

    This journey is most definitely on my bucket list… Thanks for the added incentive… and since I did that education thing first… I now have time for the photo-life…ReplyCancel

The road to California – Part 4: Land of the giants.

(continued from Part 3: Desert)

There is a place where you can wander a forest full of giant trees.  Isolated in a spot of high elevation between two deserts, these trees are left alone to grow, and grow, and grow.  Taller than 26 storey buildings, wider than some roads, and with 2500+ years of life experience under their bark…these trees are humbling.  Every once in a while I stumble upon a place that is so surreal it feels as if I am dreaming, and the giant…
