Idea Spark App – now available!

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 …

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.

Matlock Pier Wallpaper


Matlock Pier, MB, Canada

I suppose you could say I have decided to start decorating desktops for people, because I’m now going to share high resolution wallpapers here.  To view all the wallpapers in the future, select the Wallpapers category in the blog menu and a list of all the wallpaper posts will show up.

To get things started off, this is an image I shot in the twilight before sunrise out at Matlock, MB.  This quiet little town is on the edge of Lake Winnipeg.  …

    There is such a strong sense of design in your photos. Thanks for the wallpaper!ReplyCancel

Camping Season

Camping season is upon us, and every weekend that I manage to sneak away from the city really is respite for my soul.  Days stuck in shoes are balanced with days barefoot in a field; the noisiness of city night life is balanced with the noisiness of insect night life.

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 …

Diving Bunaken: Under the sea

Diving is adventure.  Diving is exploration.  Diving is going somewhere that few have gone before.

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…

    Hey man! What kind of underwater casing did you get!? Pics look greatReplyCancel

  • DavidJune 18, 2012 - 9:30 pm

    @Cat: The camera was a Canon Ixus 105, but I’m not sure what casing/flash were paired with it.ReplyCancel

    Hi, loved looking at your pictures! I’m on my way to Bunaken at the moment and have been trying to find info on renting an underwater camera. Do you have a way to contact Son?ReplyCancel

  • DavidOctober 22, 2012 - 9:36 pm

    @Lauren: Thanks! Son had a cell phone but I don’t have his contact information. If you aren’t on the island yet you could try the contact form on their website (http://bunakenkuskusresort.com/contact-us/). But if you are on the island already, just walk up the eastern path to Bunaken Kuskus Resort and walk down to the shore. The dining/hang out area will be to your left and the dive shop will be to your right. Son and the locals running the place are usually hanging out in the dining area laughing or playing the guitar. They’re friendly and I’m sure will be able to help you out. Have a great time above and below the water!ReplyCancel

    Amazing website! I love your images and the way they are positioned on your website! Stunning!

    Just curious, and I’ve been trying to get a good website up myself.

    What website host/platform did you use to create this blog/website?
    Or did you do it through independent means?ReplyCancel

  • DavidNovember 27, 2012 - 10:09 am

    @Milan: Thanks for the kind comments. I designed the site myself but leveraged some other technologies so I wouldn’t have to waste time reinventing the wheel. 🙂
    I’ve sent you an e-mail with some of my setup details and thoughts.ReplyCancel

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…
