Me: Costume plans will likely result in changes in appearance lasting beyond festive period – gotta commit to make art-ish – mimic your heroes

Halloween at the Morgue

RT @johnbiehler ~ @uncleweed really gets into character..including shaving his head in homage to Hunter S. Thompson 

Halloween at the Morgue

Me: With festive night of costuming over, i’m now just a dude with some seriously weird looking male pattern baldness – was worth the funtimes

Halloween was indeed epic at the Morgue – Thanks to host @cognesto + @johnbiehler @staciebee @miss604 @johnbollwitt + more for camaraderie

an uncleweed costume is a great idea @ColleenCoplick i could sell kits w/ goofy hat, obscure literature, well-used pipe & sensible shoes

in the abyss, one man stands alone … with only a giant stein of beer and a crocheted beer can toque to protect him … how will he survive?

Via @johnbollwitt Dude, this screams cover art for something. {note: this is a wild photo – seems so serious while goofy)

Here are a few highlights with a full set on Flickr – Canada Fireworks in Vancouver.

Vancouver Fireworks Pics as per Northern Voice spiel

With my semi-useful blurb in Scoble’s vidcast of KK’s Northern Voice photography schtick yesterday, thought i’d point you to my kick-a$$ fireworks pics in case you missed ’em. The shots are from three separate shows – the Chinese, Mexicans and Czechs. Be sure to stay tuned for this year’s performances which are now a go due to the largess of some corporation or other.

Here are a few more faves to get you started … plenty more to enjoy. View the details to get the shutter speed and aperture settings.

Vancouver Sculpture Bienelle

Vancouver is hosting a collection of world-class public outdoor sculpture for a period of time. All the details are at: http://www.vancouverbiennale.com/

Art and photography enthusiasts may consider contributing to the Flickr Vancouver Bienelle Group which is also a contest of sorts as you may win a nice lil prize for your efforts.

My snaps are tagged and stashed on Flickr but here’s a few samplers:

Declared the finest fireworks picture ever!

Chinese Fireworks in VancouverThe esteemed Unabonger has declared this as his favorite fireworks picture of all time. While there is no contest occuring, i must say, i am really pleased with how they turned out.

I have dozens upon dozens from this night of the Celebration of Fire competition alone (China) and only posted maybe 6-8 so as to not flood my photostream but i’ll likley make something out of the whole collection. Plus still two more nights to shoot with Czech Republic and Mexico competing for the prize(?).

Anyhow, I ran them through a slideshow last night and really dug the dimension of the colours and and, when in full size, seeing the subtitles of the smoke of the water (dada dada dudada) and the details on the barge. Check out the whole set including the walk to English Bay and the sights and folks around.
