In Just For Fun, News & Stuff by David18 Comments

I call this one, “She’s a Babe, I’m an Idiot.” So does she. Yesterday my wife and I marked 6 years of marriage and so today we’re off to British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast for 3 days of hanging out sans internet. Can’t wait.

Kenya & Bangladesh – World Vision Canada

In Images, News & Stuff, Travel by David25 Comments

In November I was in Kenya for World Vision Canada, in February I was in Bangladesh. Both trips were a visual adventure for me, another challenge to shoot similar subject matter in new ways and to discover new moments. I’ve only now got around to posting something.
