Playing with lights in our new home
I like the red chair a lot so here you have it.
So it’s only one day after I complained that I am lazy bastard and I get to say that I am moving forward. I think that today would really qualify as at least a good step. In fact it was a super busy day filled with pure awesome (: The day started at the early hour of 5:30am with a bit of morning driving about while M was at her weekly cult meeting. While they were toasting kool-aid and such I was chasing the sunrise around.
Harry Jerome Statue with with morning in the back ground…
…and my favorite tree in Stanley park.
Next on the list of awesome today was a photo shoot with a couple of new models that I haven’t worked with before – Leanna and Amie. We had a blast shooting with old cameras, vintage clothes, and some old furniture.
Amie out in the wilds of Vancouver and in the studio.
The same place with Leanna. These four shots are taken with my standard run of the mill Polaroid 600 Camera
I took a few rolls of film that I will drop off to the lab as well but these are a few of the digital shoots from the day.
I think we are going to do a whole fashion inspired chair in random place series. Mostly because chairs in random places = buckets of awesome! And Buckets of Awesome is what I am all about!
Continuing right along with the awesomeness of the day, I had band jam time in which we did a few takes of our favorite songs. I managed to somehow tear my fingernail half off yesterday on the mountain so I was playing with a bandaged finger. Shan played us a hidden track from a band (I forget the name of the band) where they ‘cover’ Guns and Roses. This prompted us to start playing Bon Jovi and well it all went down hill from there. Luckily the Zoom was recording the hilarity that was our version of Dead Or Alive :)
More form the archives of the institute, here we have a wicker chair and and wicker wall in the Waldorf Wicker Tiki bar that A Northern Voice Party was at this year.
Here we have a photo that I took while at a bridal show that was held at a North Shore Art Gallery. I loved the colour of the chair and the colour of the wall, and well I loved it all so I stole it in photographic form! Hey they don’t call it ‘taking‘ a photograph for nothing!
So over the last two days we have been slowly driving back from Alberta the long way around. Instead of going the most direct way that would get us from Edmonton to Vancouver very quickly we thought we would make the drive fun and go the longest possible way that we could. We went south to Red Deer and turned west at Sylvan Lake where we found the neatest little scooter company that is actually based in Langley BC – Volano Scooters – although we are sure these are the “cheap P.O.S’s” that Jiang Wayne was talking about one time. We thought that it was hilarious that we went to the middle of a field in Alberta and discovered uber urban things that come from our home.
Stopped on the highway to take photos of this old house in the middle of a canola field.
We actually were going to go through the field and check it out, but the canola was so thick we couldn’t even walk. The best we could get is a long lens shot of it from the highway. We stopped in Rocky mountain house on our way to the parks. We took the ice fields parkway south to the Trans-Canada and we stuck on that till we got to Revelstoke where we decided that we would spend the night. We ended up staying at the campiest place ever just for the heck of it! We didn’t set out to stay at the campiest place ever but it just sorta happened that way. Check out the floor in the bathroom! A word to the wise, Round Beds suck!
In the morning we hit the road early but we didn’t make it far before we found a place that we had to check out. This is an old abandoned motel right on the side of the road. We only had to hop one fence to get to it!
So we wandered around with cameras for 20 minutes. After that we weren’t on the road for more then 10 minutes before we found the next abandoned place. This is an old sawmill that looks just like it shut down one day and never started back up.
There is everything still there and not even badly vandalized (probably because it’s in the middle of nowhere.) So we wandered around that for about an hour. We stopped next in Sicamous for breakfast. We found a country breakfast buffet that wasn’t half bad. Because we like to drive places that we haven’t seen before we took the long way home. We went though Vernon and Kelowna as apposed to the quick route via Kamloops. We didn’t really stop anywhere except this.
I have never been to Osoyoos or Princeton so we took the 97 and the 3 home. Fantastic scenery and we found a few more scooters on the way! There is a town called Keremeos that is about halfway between Princton and Osoyoos that was filled with old beat up tractors and well worn Vespa’s as well as wicker scooters!
I Came Home today to this.
Then I woke her up :)
