Bus Writing: “Actually, it’s a loveseat”

Originally scrawled in unreadable prose while riding the 253 westward… The fact that she could most likely smell me before she saw me was probably little solace to ******* when she woke up this morning. It was, however, of some comfort to me. To describe her as bashful would be an outright lie, but there […]

The Week That Was Part 1: The “Ladies of Main St. Tour”

It was a Twitter message from the bowels of the Brewery Creek Liquor Store that sent me off down Main St. last Sunday: “If you ever want to feel better about your problems, looks or life in general, hang around my liquor store Sun AM.” A cry for help like that is hard to ignore, even […]

This is NOT a pub crawl

Candid shots are always the best shots (for my dime) but when people find out you’re taking their picture one of two things tends to happen: either they pose or they get pissed off. The later creates some good […]

Looking for shots in Vancouver or on North Shore

So, as part of  unleashing The Year of Baron on Vancouver and the surrounding area, I’d like to document as much of this city as I possibly can with my camera. It’s always exciting to explore and find your own shots but if there are any spots in this city that you feel are worth […]
