Idea Spark App – 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 build up media that is specific to my clients’ …

Zombies Fire Dance?

And here I thought zombies and fire didn’t get along.

Yesterday was Winnipeg’s annual zombie walk, where the undead get together to enjoy some zombie culture.  Kicking things off at The Forks were the Undead Fire Performers who got the crowd fired up before taking to the streets.

Funny how contrasts helps you appreciate both ends of the spectrum.  Hot days and cool lakes.  Sunshine and stars.  Sunsets and stormy skies.  Sweaty bodies and cold beers.  Friends and mosquitoes.  …

Diving Bunaken: Under the sea

I love exploring.  When I look at the map of the world, I am overwhelmed by all the places I’d like to visit, by dreams of seeing things I haven’t seen.  Initially when you look at a map, most people immediately focus on the land, the continents, the idea of foreign places around the world and images they’ve seen of these places flash through their head.  But take your focus…

A (Partial) Solar Eclipse

Photography aside, a friend and I decided to drive up to Steep Rock on Lake Manitoba to get out of the city last Sunday (May 20th).  It was a planned coincidence that it just so happened to be on the same evening as a partial solar eclipse was happening.  I took a couple snapshots of the sun through a filter that resembles a piece of welding glass, but quickly realized that photos just didn’t do the event justice.  Better to just sit back and enjoy the show with my eclipse…
