Emerald Lake.

In Emily and I, Just For Fun, Travel by David12 Comments

There may, or may not, be a hot tub here at Emerald Lake Lodge. A huge 16-person hot-tub. Also, there may or may not be a fermented beverage in the flask (thank you, Dave Delnea). Flask by Filson. Photograph, and mad iPhone skills, by Cynthia Brooke Haynes. Hat by Patagonia.


In Just For Fun, Life Is Short, News & Stuff, Pep Talks, Travel by David88 Comments

I want to join my little penguin friend in wishing you a very Merry Christmas. If you celebrate Hanukkah, like much of my family, then a happy Hanukkah to you. If you celebrate something else, or nothing at all, then I wish you the same: peace, joy, and a new year that is filled with the same. I still celebrate …

OK, New Plan. Part I

In GEAR, Jessie and I, Just For Fun, News & Stuff, Travel by David76 Comments

I think we can all agree that this year went a little sideways. If things had gone to plan I’d have picked Jessie up in Atlanta over a month ago, spun through the Florida Keys, lingered for three weeks, then come up the Eastern seaboard, and back into Canada.

I’ll have the Gator

In Jessie and I, Just For Fun, Travel by David54 Comments

Actual conversation in Louisiana, somewhere on the bayou. I’ve been thinking about it ever since and suspect- just maybe – the human brain doesn’t do well on the toxic combination of gator, frogs and deep-fry.

One last full day here in Jamaica. The sun finally came out and I traded my sweater for swim trunks and my snorkelling gear. Stumbled across Tony who took me out to shoot some staged dive shots while I tried to get on top of the learning curve with underwater shooting. I’ve learned so much over the last week, though …

The Nikon Post

In GEAR, Just For Fun, News & Stuff by David

I am approaching this post with trepidation knowing what kind of strange misplaced fury these issues bring up in some people. If only some people put as much energy into their creative lives, eh? But you are not those people, so that’s why I’m not keeping this to myself. You folks are friends and deserve to know the reasons for …

Postcard from Kho Samed

In Just For Fun, Travel by David21 Comments

Last night up to my neck in the warm waters off Kho Samed. Hello from the small island of Kho Samed. I came here last year for a couple days at the end of a 2 week shoot in northern Thailand, and knew I had to come back. So when I had a week to hangout between the Ladakh and …
