Not only can he wield a spoon with the best of them but, Arnaud can also put together one heck of a photography journal as well.

Here he is proudly displaying a very rare inaugural issue of BOP magazine, prior to it’s general availability sometime in January. Very nice work and, as a special bonus, yours truly gets featured in a guest slot on the very last page.

Keep your eye on for news of it’s general availability and pick up a copy when it’s out!

Deck the Halls on Flickr.

With a toddler who’s shockingly helpful! I’m sure the tree will hit the ground at least a half dozen times between now and Xmas but, tonight at least, Trajan was a huge help in decorating.

W. Eugene Smith's Landmark Photo Essay, 'Nurse Midwife':

A real classic. As moving today as when it was first published.

Testing Snapseed out on a rare solo wander today. Much film shot too.

Snapseed seems pretty cool but, doesn’t save your images unless you explicitly tell it to. Very un-iOS like and I lost half a dozen shots before I realized that. Bad Snapseed!

With any luck, I’ll get the mountain of film that’s been collecting here processed tomorrow and have some new stuff to share this week. Or next. Or, maybe I’ll finish scanning my shots from October and November sometime soon. Sigh, maybe it’s time to go back to digital.

After a long hiatus, finally a new story (and lots of other stuff) on my website.

Just a quick hello on Flickr.

Another shot from my initial test of the Canon Serenar 100mm f/4.0 earlier in the month. The Harbour Green Water Park on a rainy autumn day, not a kid in sight.

Have been up to my ears in work lately and haven’t even scanned most of the film I developed a couple weeks ago yet! Hoping to see the sunlight (or rain shine at least) really soon!

Canon Serenar 100mm F/4.0 on Flickr.

Via Flickr:
At the swap meet earlier this month I picked up a Canon 7s and a Serenar 100mm f/4.0. The Serenar is a pretty basic lens overbuilt in heavy chrome and brass to an almost comical effect. Three elements, not a lot of correction for anything but, it does seem to perform pretty decently for what it is. I suspect that it’ll be pretty good at f/8-11 but, I live in Vancouver so won’t be able to venture into those kinds of apertures until May at least.

For months, I had nightmares about this. Nothing stopping him now.

Limbs of the Stars on Flickr.

Via Flickr:
Renaissance man and good friend Stephen Lyons belts one out at the CD Release for the debut album of his combo ‘Limbs of the Stars’: heartwarmongering at the Rickshaw last Friday evening.

It was, as they say, one hell of a show. They’re one hell of a band, 40% or so of the Juno Award winning ‘Fond of Tigers’ with Shanto Acharia on bass, and Skye Brooks on drums.

Check it out:
