And An Ominous Portent For Dessert

My wife and I went out for dinner at the Danforth Dragon who, somewhat silly website aside, make very good and interesting food. They would have my unqualified endorsement if it weren’t for the fact that, to wrap up the meal, they gave my wife a fortune cookie with not one but two fortunes in […]

Guy Vs. Guy

Like alcoholism and pyromania, in moderation paranoia can be a lot of fun. So if you’re interested in making your commute just a little bit surreal or add a certain cold war East-Berlin-chic to your next get together, I have quite a treat for you. Numbers Stations are shortwave radio stations that transmit seemingly-random sets […]

Under A Blood Red Sky

This looked like a thin crescent moon against a cloudless, nighttime background to my simple human eyes. I took it outside my second-floor window through a screen at a quarter to four in the morning. I can’t sleep. And it came out a half-moon under a rusted-out alien sky, the one hydro line across the […]

You Can’t Have Too Much Buddha

I’ve filtered out a few more of my very-late-now Hong Kong photos, and dumped a set from my trip to Lantau Island on Flickr. The trip to Lantau was great, starting with another reminder of how backwards Toronto’s public transit system is; the trip was fast, fast and simple, all public transit and a cable […]

Libid Zyla 2: Zyla Harder

I know I still owe you some Hong Kong photos, internets, but I’ve just finished triaging the photos from Libid and Randy’s wedding. The rest of the photoset is here, not all of the bride and groom. I spent a lot of time photographing the guests, and some of them came out pretty well. That’s […]

Creepy Hydrant Wants To Love You

Taken in Winnipeg.

It’s Saturday, Oooh, Oooh.

This might not make a ton of sense if you’ve never heard of Ludacris, but I’ve been meaning to do this for a while. (Also, a slightly-related funny I stumbled upon, this made me laugh. “You remember that hot tub? I filled it up with all women instead of water. Saved a hundred and fifty […]

The Short Walk Home

I still haven’t sorted out my next Hong Kong set, but as a token apology here’s my walk home from the subway at night. These aren’t HDR-treated or even retouched; one of the many reasons I love this camera is that this is what comes out of it from the default settings.

Caution

A one-off from Hong Kong, as I sort through the rest. It’s impressive, to see a building wrapped entirely in heavy tarp and lashed bamboo for repairs (bamboo and ties being all that they use, as far as I can tell, for scaffolding of any kind) but the signage is not always what it could […]

The Temple Of Eternal Perfection

Again, taken from our visit to the aforementioned Temple of Eternal Perfection.
