Pender Adventure (May 24th, 2005)
The Gulf Islands are called such because back in the day someone thought they were in a gulf. It's confusing because they most definitely are smack in the middle of Georgia straight. I could see how sailing around with a GPS system could be confusing though.

This weekend was a truly enjoyable nature experience. Lots of hiking, Disc Golf, beaches, friends, drugs, alchohol and most of all - Photos!

This was my first weekend experimenting with the D70. It truly is a remarkable piece of machinery and I can't wait to learn more about it.

The D70 has arrived! (May 19th, 2005)
This week I received a large box full of thousands of dollars in photography gear. The items of most interest (and value) were the Nikon D70 Body, 2GB Compact Flash card, Nikkor 20-80mm f/3.3-5.6 G lens and Nikkor 70-300mf/4-5.6 G lens. Other accessories include a closeup/wideangle attachment, extra litium-ion battery, tripod, hard case, soft case and other less significant items.

I'm fuckin' stoked. Now, I will no longer be hesitant referring to myself as a photographer. : )

Bend Over Backwards (May 15th, 2005)
I had planned going camping this weekend but the weather didn't shed a favorable light on itself yesterday afternoon so I changed my plans to be less adventurous. I think it would have been a good trip though, I haven't seen a drop today.

This weekend I had a shoot to do at my friend's yoga studio, 'Bend Over Backwards, Yoga in the Iyengar Tradition'. The photos are for the website that I built for her a couple years ago - www.iyengaryogananaimo.com. I'm planning to design a new look for the site in the next while.

Hyper Productive Week's End (May 9th, 2005)
So, this weekend, in addition to spending lots of time with the woman of my dreams I got a lot of stuff done. Painted the shed, played Disc Golf, did a photo shoot, etc. It was great and the best part - no hangovers.

The photo shoot today was for the VI Raiders, a new junior football club in town. You can check out their website here. (I built it)

Just throw it .... (May 5th, 2005)
I've been playing a lot of Disc Golf lately. It seems to be infecting everyone I know with no sign of an antidote. The infection really has only pleasant symptoms though and gives all involved a chance to be outdoors in this fantastic weather we've been having.

The fanaticism has run so deep that two friends and I are developing a website with information about courses, technique, etc. as well as a store to buy discs, disc bags and other related paraphenalia. It's called DiscGolfSource.com and will be a few months in the making. Might be a good revenue generator though, apparently more discs were sold in the last year than footballs, soccerballs and basketballs combined.
