Upside Down Umbrella Party

Upside Down Umbrella Party. I ventured out to Royal Roads University to take some pictures of Hatley Castle one fall day, and found a bunch of overturned umbrellas, presumably from a party the night before. It was quite cool as they were all clear umbrellas that had just been rained on. Turned out to be very curious. View the larger version on Flickr

Space Needle before the Storm

Space Needle before the Storm. Growing up near Toronto, ON, and the CN Tower, the Seattle Space Needle isn't all that impressive from a size stand point, but what is impressive is how Seattlites have made it part of their culture. the SeaHawks 12th man flag flies from it all the time, and whenever there is fireworks, the Space Needle looks like it's about to explode as the fireworks shoot out of it sideways. This shot was taken at the end of a nice day as the clouds rolled in to bring that beloved Seattle rain. :) View the larger version on Flickr

Good Night Toronto

Good Night Toronto. Ah, my home-town. This shot taken from the Docks in Toronto of the famous CN Tower and the rest of the Toronto Skyline. Shot this during the summer. I would wager this place is getting quite cold these days. View the larger version on Flickr

No Trains

No Trains. Ballard, in Seattle, some pretty nice locks to get, by boat, from lake Union to the Puged Sound. This shot taken from the Botanical Gardens on the Comodore Park side just popped with the bridge up and the yellow sunset (yes there is sun in Seattle!) behind it. This is another old shot of mine, but recently re-edited. View the larger version on Flickr

Fremont Art

Fremont Art. This is a really old shot of mine, but it's always been one of my favorites. I haven't put it online yet, and I wanted to change that. If someone knows who the artist is (ABZ?) please post it in the comments, I'd love to compliment the artist, as this is an awesome wall! View the larger version on Flickr

Dead End

Dead End. Over at the Heritage Acres Farm, they have a lot of cool old buildings. This is a water wheel near the small pond, if you go much further than this building, you'll be IN the pond. The color of the building and blue of the sky really caught my eye, which is the reason I stopped and snapped this one. View the larger version on Flickr

Takes a Lickin', Keeps a Tickin'

Takes a Lickin', Keeps a Tickin'. Some trucks are never meant to die, like this one! It was hosting a folk band at a Halloween festival. These old trucks are so unique, with their rounded fenders and I'm sure with this guy, ever dent and bump has a story behind it. View the larger version on Flickr

Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus. Heritage Acres on Vancouver Island (Saanich) hosts an "Enchanted Halloween" every year leading up to Halloween night. This pumpkin was on the witch's house where kids were supposed to go to trick or treat. Caught my eye, and turned out rather cool. View the larger version on Flickr
