Photos - Some Favourites

Batchelor Bay - my favourite photo of one of my favourite places.

If you stop by here from time to time you know I like photography. Well, I just finished organizing about 6 months of photos on my computer (6,000+).... it was an epic project that I hope will convince me to organize them better each time I upload.

Anyway, I decided to reward myself by putting together a quick photo post with a few of my favourites.

Many of these have graced these pages already... but a few have not.

Enjoy!

Will Routley and Nic Hamilton at the Yaletown Grand Prix. I took a bazillion shots there - this one was the best. This got published - once online (can't remember the site) and once in the 24Hours Newspaper.

Viggo and our big wooden pear.

One of my favourite photos I have ever taken... I love these bikes and the gritty wall, the shadow and the green crates... all behind Habit Coffee in Victoria. Missy even asked if she could have this for her wall which was quite an honour!

The smiles say it all - priceless!

Ha! Soon they won't let me do this sort of thing to with them... because it will be "uncool". Until then, they are my favourite 'models'.

Lighthouse Park on an amazing weather day - sunny AND black clouds = camera time!

First day of school. She was SO excited.

Sacha pushing the kids on the swings - summer evening in the city, out late.

Steph @ the Bay Challenge... I drove the boat and took photos, Steph and Susie put on a masterful display of swimming.


The Look... he's intense for a little guy.

AMAZiNG pics!! I love the bike one; your children are insanely photogenic; can't believe the swimmer & BARGE made the cut! I look forward to taking that picture of YOU next year...gidddddy up!

Swimming beside those tankers is pretty much the only reason I want to do the Bay Challenge....

It looks SO hardcore...

Your cap matching the stack on the ship was lucky...

wow... true talent in taking pictures. Hope you are protecting them. We just had our MAC crash and lost our hard drive. For a small price of $1500 we can get all of the precious photos back. Lesson learned!

MJ said...

Ouch! thanks for the reminder! I back up but probably not often enough.

I also keep some in online albums (picasa and photobucket) though not at the highest resolution...

Before you spend that $1500 (assuming that's through the Apple store) you should try using the "little guy" i.e. find a small shop with a single nerd trying to make it... they are always WAY cheaper.

Cheers,

YES, because I love your pictures. The room is coming along nicely and I'm sending it off for enlargement. ...it would just be weird if I put pictures of your kids up in my bike room;)

Missy said...

P.S. another fav of mine is the one where you have a picture of your T1 set up with your bike and leg - yep, I think about that one all the time when I try to puss out! Sorry but it gets me everytime...

MJ said...

That photo's from WAY back... I had to dig around to find it...

Here it is: http://tinyurl.com/ya86cl6

Looking forward to seeing my shot hanging in your bike room!

Cheers!
