Happy Birthday Carolina

January 12, 2011

I’ve been playing a little catch up since returning from my holidays. Two very important people in my life celebrated their birthdays recently and I haven’t had a chance to post their birthday blogs.

Carolina’s birthday was January 5th. Carol is one of my favourite people on the planet and I’d like to take a minute to tell you about her.

She was a cute little girl...

...that became a beautiful woman.

She is married to a great guy...

...and together they have produced two more of my favourite people.

Once and awhile she gets a collo piegato.

She has a bit of a wild side.

This is how she looked pregnant.

She's an amazing hostess and cook.

She enjoys relaxing at the cabin on the lake...

Or taking in some rays on the beach.

...or taking a walk on the beach.

A good looking familia.

She is always smiling.

Carol poses with a forehead!

Carol is fiercely loyal to her family and friends. She is tough and will punch you in your eye if you disrespect her beloved Canucks! She loves the summer and gardening and BBQ’s with friends.

Carol you are one of those rare people in life that I feel I can truly be myself around (I’m sure more than you’d like). I am always amazed by your seemingly endless energy and supermomness! You are selfless and always put your family and friends first. You have gone above and beyond for me through thick and thin and I love you.

Happy Birthday Bella!

Happy Birthday JT

December 3, 2010

No it’s not Justin Timberlake’s birthday!

Today is my dear friend James G Thornley’s birthday! I’d like to take a few minutes to tell you about him.

He is an excellent chef and a BBQ master. Takes him forever to clean the grate though.

He loves adventure and has traveled the world.

He enjoys canning vegetables, even when he has stayed up until 4am partying the night before.

He grew up on a farm and still enjoys a good pony ride.

He's feisty though his bark is much worse then his bite.

He has more friends than anyone I know...

...ironically he will not join Facebook! ...ironically two hot birds and a Turkey.

He enjoys a good hike, here he is on a Haleakala in Maui...

...and here he is on Piestewa Peak in Arizona

He is quite the swinger!...

... incidentally he also enjoys golfing.

He and actor Michael Keaton share a similar profile.

He is thoughtful...

...and always has a rebel yell chambered and at the ready.

A few little known facts about James. He raised birmingham roller pigeons in his youth and used to show them at the PNE!. His favourite pigeon was named Bernice, sadly she was attacked by a hawk while James was training her. He was an extra on 21 Jumpstreet, Johnny Depp often stays at James home while in Vancouver!. Okay that’s not true at all, but he was on 21 Jumpstreet. He enjoys the odd pint of beer and occasionally dips into a glass of Crown Royal.

Seriously though Jamie you are truly a great friend, you have a big compassionate heart and your loyalty never waivers. You have learned to endure my close walking in the mall, my incessant arm bars and my steam rolls while on vacations.

Happy Birthday buddy!

Borrrringggg…

…I swear I have interesting new posts coming soon, they include an artist in her studio space, broom parking, Vancouver’s flea market and vintage New York stripper polaroids. Until then here are a few images I made but never posted from Maui this year.

Mexican Fireworks for June G.

July 30, 2010

Here you go June!

I made this stop motion movie at the fireworks last Wednesday night. It was shot through a window so it’s a little over/underexposed at times, not to mention mostly out of focus and all around underwhelming. The helicopters and planes flying around might be the best parts. Best viewed fullscreen on the 720p setting.
