Kamloops - Tournament Capital

Testing cameras is always fun and scary but my Olympus never breaks down. Here's a fun video at my friend Carrie's house with my point and shoot.

The best clouds to shoot in are always the darkest, Lightning and thunder are nice too.

New Scraps

 Before my photoshow was done I completed many new Scrap layouts, here's a few to add to the book. My thickest book which these are in is about 500 pages, hopefully to be filled one day.

Some B&W rolls

 I still love to drop rolls of film off at the lab, not knowing what's inside is  always a pleasent surprise. Here's a few from when mom and dad were in town, Sasha and I took them around, camera's on them at all times. Vancouver, Whistler and Squamish.

Events weekend

 This weekend should be a busy one around town. We have Car Free day, Billabong store opening, RDS line contest, Concrete's 100 issue party, Zoo York video premier, Horse races, etc etc. Oh yea and some  serious  skateboarding as well if you can pry me away from the beach. Found some more extra photos on my computer today, some old some new.

A few left overs

 This summer has been hot and full of great skating. Here's a few extras from the past month or so that I've been sitting on. This Saturday is our #100 issue of Concrete Skateboarding as well , hope you all can  make it. Antisocial shop at 8pm then to the Biltmore for drinks and partying.

There's a new magazine in Canada called Kingshit. I got a couple things in there for the first issue, including this article about winter in Vancouver. Thanks guys, I like the way it turned out.
