Carly Dow (and friends)

One of the great things about the Manitoba music community is the mutual support that artists give each other – competition is shrugged away, and friendship is the chosen way.  When a creator releases to the world something they have been working on for a long time, it is a thing to be celebrated.  Such was the case at Carly Dow‘s launch party for her new album, Ingrained – friends gathered, friends performed, friends danced, and all witnessed the …

Happy Mother’s Day! (slash: soft Etsy store opening)

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there!  You ladies are superheroes without the capes.

This is a card I made for my Mama Bear – and when I say made, I mean photographed, cut, printed, and even cut/hand-folded the envelope.  As some of you may know, six months ago I bought a photo printer and since have been quietly working to understand the art of print making – in doing so being able to control every fine detail from the moment my camera…

Spirits in the sky.

The aurora borealis are a beautiful wonder of nature.  Over my entire life, I have seen the night sky erupt in dancing northern lights a few times – usually unexpectedly when I am camped in the woods and I happen to poke my head out from the tent in the middle of the night.  Watching them silently move across the sky, it is easy to understand how people have believed them to be spirits of animals and ancestors.  In all honesty, in the awe of the moment it is …

Frozen at Lake Winnipeg.

I am not a bird that flies south.  Rather, a winter escape for me is to leave dirty city streets behind and seek out a spot where the snow is still pure white.  This year, the escape was to a cozy cabin on the blank canvas that is Lake Winnipeg.

The city quickly disappears behind as we drive the blustery road north.  Conditions like these aren’t great for driving…

…but they sure are beautiful when you’re out of the car.  The big snowflakes covered everything

    It was so cold that night you went up to Hecla, but the shot at the lighthouse was worth it. How beautiful!ReplyCancel

    Love your visual stories. That last shot is awesome. Very reminiscent of Paul Zizka.ReplyCancel

    I’m glad you both like that last one! It was really cold Karyn…but we worked up enough of a sweat schlubbing through the snow drifts that we were fine!ReplyCancel

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
