Atari and Dragons…what a golden age to remember!
On July 23, 2017, my wife and I had the great pleasure of waking up with the birds to photograph the Canadian iconic Bluenose II (a replica of the original 1921 Bluenose that was featured on a Canadian Stamp in 1928 and on the Canadian dime in 1937) sailing along the St. Lawrence River and past the equally Canadian iconic Château Frontenac (1892).
This picture was taken from atop la Terrasse du Chevalier-de-Levis, and making this photo even more special is the top left hand corner where in 2015 I kneeled down on one knee to propose to my beautiful wife and soul mate on la Terrasse Dufferin. So, yeah, I’d say this picture would be easily among one of my all time symbolic favourites.
Class A, Barque 3, 89.7 metre, U.S. Coast Guard Cutter, built in 1936. Originally operated by Nazi Germany to train cadets for the German Navy, the ship was taken by the United States as a war prize after World War II.
One of my all-time favourite mottos in life is: “the early bird gets the worm”, and while most normal people would safely pass on getting up at 3:00 a.m. to find early morning photography moments, on this mighty fine day I had the great pleasure of photographing the HMCS Toronto FFH 333 sailing in the St. Laurent with le Pont de Québec and le Pont Pierre-Laporte in the background – a spectacular photography angle!
The HMCS Toronto is a Halifax-class frigate that was commissioned in 1993 and its motto is “Excellence with Vigour” — something any early bird can certainly appreciate! The HMCS Toronto is a general purpose warship with a particular focus on anti-submarine capabilities, but in times of peace it’s a real beauty to photograph!

Wihtout the flame all I could think about was superman’s Fortress of Solitude – I very much like the look!
Un bel immeuble entouré de grands arbres, où héberge beaucoup d’histoire et de culture.
Towering just above the tree line, and reaching into the clouds, are two beautiful totem poles honouring the Haida and Kwakwaka’wakw First Nations cultures in Victoria, British Columbia. The Haida Pole (left) was carved in 1984 by Gerry Marks, Richard Hunt and Tim Paul. The Kwakwaka’wakw Pole (right) was carved in 1981 by Tony Hunt.
The Kwakwaka’wakw Totem Pole at Thunderbird Park in Victoria, Canada, was carved by Sean Whonnock and Johnathan Henderson. This honouring pole is dedicated to the Coast Salish people on whose ancestral lands Thunderbrid Park is located.
This long exposure image was taken with my new Canon TS-E 17mm tilt-shift lens, and Formatt-Hitech Long Exposure Filters, on a calm night in Victoria, BC. One of my Canada 150 dreams would be to photograph all 13 provincial and territorial legislatures in Canada – both inside and out, during the day and at night.
A rainy day in Coal Harbour with storm clouds sweeping across the horizon. This image was taken with my new 165mm Format Hitech Lucroit neutral density filter kit, and dialed up with some Adobe Photoshop CS6 poster edging.
An early morning scene of moored boats, marked by a still sea and a moving sky.
The Honourable Judith Guichon, OBC, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, salutes hundreds of proud Royal Canadian Navy personnel in commemoration of the Battle of the Atlantic. This local event – under a national memorial context – took place on a beautiful sunny day in Victoria, BC, along the Pacific coastline. Celebrating a life of honour and sacrifice performed in the name of others for liberty and freedom is indeed righteous and worthy of remembrance.

Enjoying the ultra-spectacular sights and sounds of prayers resonating from the Blue Mosque and its minarets. And making this moment extra special for me was the opportunity to enjoy it from Sultanahmet Park under a relatively heavy and rare snowfall. Wintertime is indeed picturesque! This mosque was constructed between 1606 and 1616, and is located next to the equally impressive Aya Sofya.
