Taken at the 5th Annual East Van Show and Shine outside the Whip Restaurant in Vancouver.  There were a lot of great cars there, but this late 60's Dodge Charger was my favorite.  This is actually an HDR shot converted to black and white with some transparency.

Vancouver Aquarium - 2012-05-01

Photo: Hyacinth Macaws at the Vancouver Aquarium

I always love to see the two Hyacinth Macaws at the Vancouver Aquarium.  They are loud, colorful, and always active.  In this shot it looks like they are good buddies.

I came across this interesting natural sand sculpture at a Vancouver beach.  It kept changing as sand and water ran down, very mesmerizing and beautiful.

American Pitbull Terrier - High Resolution Photo

Photo: Pitbull for adoption

I volunteer at Vancouver Animal Control to take photos of dogs available for adoption.  I hope the quality of the photos increases the dogs changes of getting adopted.  It is a lot of fun and very rewarding as well.   This 'cow patch'  pitbull was a big softie.

Queen Elizabeth Park

Photo: Fall Colours in Vancouver

This scene was so full of colour it almost hurt my eyes :)  The fall leaves had fallen into the pond but some of the plants were still a lush green.  The HDR photo brought out the full dynamic range of the scene.

Scotland Cathedral

Photo: St Mary's Cathedral, Edinburgh, Scotland

I only had one day to myself on my visit to Edinburgh, Scotland but I tried to make the most of it.  This is a photo of St Mary's Cathedral, an amazing structure.  I love old churches and cathedrals, even more so that we don't have any spectacular ones in Vancouver.

Hawaii Diving: Wreck of the Naked Lady

Photo: Wreck of the Naked Lady

Not all of my photos are above the water.  Since I'm an avid scuba diver, I also take photos under the water, like this shot of a sailboat off the coast of Maui, Hawaii.

Smithsonian Museum of Natural History

After a visit to the London Museum of Natural History in England, I certainly had to visit the Smithsonian while in Washington DC.  It certainly impressed, even if the building pales in comparison to the UK version.  Considering how popular this place is, I'm shocked I was able to get a wide angle photo with no people in the frame.
