odds and ends from an unusual life


Well, I'm home. I'm pretty good at changing gears but I found it impossible to get excited about all the snow in Vancouver. I'm about to go out and walk in it, so maybe that will change my mind, but my head is still underwater.

Here are some shots from my Christmas Vacation. I hope you like them.

Brendan clowning around with a bottle he found.
Spotted moray eel.
A giant anenome in front of the blue on the reef wall.
T checks out a preoccupied turtle. He was munching on a sponge for about 5 minutes.

This Peacock flounder was showing off his blue spots for me.
Reef Gliders moved into a huge new shop with its own beach and dock. Nice!

And now for the real world. I'm actually excited to see all of the entrants in the Deep Winter Photo contest going on this week. I'll be judging the event and I'm not really looking forward to that. Judging photography is like deciding which puppy is cuter, everyone has an opinion and they are all correct. However, someone has to win and I'll contribute as best I can to make sure it is the right person.

Unfortunately, saying yes to this event means that I am going to miss the Greg Todds Memorial in Trout Lake this weekend. I'm really bummed about that. I hope all my friends out there have a good time, and be safe. I look forward to seeing the photos.

Happy New Year everyone. I hope that is the last time you al have to hear it. On with the show...



Returning to Canada


Where ya been? I haven’t seen you in awhile. Been busy? Happy? Good. Nice to hear. Me? Oh man, so much going on.

I’m moving. Oh you heard. Ya I’m moving back to Canada. No, probably not Whistler. Vancouver. Ya, I have lots of friends there and I haven’t lived there since I was a teenager, so I’m pretty excited about it. I’m loving the city these days. Vancouver is amazing.

I’m getting married too. To T. I know, it’s still really new. Well thanks, I’m stoked too. She proposed just before we drove down to California. No, she’s not here now, in Honduras. I dropped them at LAX and she took Pammy down and taught her to dive. They’re having an awesome time. They saw a frickin sawfish. How is that? I know! I would be too. She’ll be back here at the end of the month. She’s going to help me pack up my stuff.

The mag? Oh it’s doing well, that’s why I feel ok about heading home. I’m showing Crispin Cannon the ropes right now. He has a month to learn how all this works, and then he’s on his own! Ya, I’ll still shoot for FSM, I just want more outside time and less office time. Thanks. That’s nice of you to say. Well ya, we worked really hard on it. Colin is good. Finished his book. He’s shopping it around right now.

Cool, cool. Ok right on. We’ll talk to you soon then. Good to see you…
