Our daily routine can sometimes make the days seem long and endless, meanwhile we all look back in amazement at a year gone by toO quickly. These are the contradictions of life, both wrong and right at the same time. 2013 kicked my ass and put me to bed for the last days of the Read More →


I sometimes find that driving for an external goal is easier than driving for a personal one. For example, performing well at work is easier than getting myself to the gym every day, because at work I have other people to impress and to prove myself to; I am reporting to someone other than myself, Read More →


Why do we run away from the things we love? If we love the sun, why do we close the blinds? If we love the rain, why do we hide inside? If we love to be happy, why do we choose to stay mad? There’s a certain discomfort with the unusual, with letting our hairs Read More →

Under the bridge downtown is where we took these shots. Going off the beaten path can often take you to wonderful places, and in this case we ended up at Elbow Island Park for our first time. Even though it looks like a forest, it’s only a few minutes from downtown along the riverside. I Read More →
