Father of an Adult

I've been focused on turning 40 this year. Last week it dawned on me that as of today I would be the father of an adult. Wow, that's quite the realization. Not sure how that snuck up on me but it did. When I mentioned this to Kim it freaked her out too.

Happy Birthday Kiddo.

40 4 40 @ Cafe Koi

40 4 40 @ Cafe Koi
Forty of my pictures are on display at Cafe Koi from now to the end of the year. In the spring Kim asked what I wanted to do to mark my 40th birthday. "I don't know, something to do with photography". Just after that Koi asked if I wanted to do a show there. "Do you have December available?" They did. So it's been in the works for months and now it's up.

There is a reception on Wed December 8th. I've sent invites to everyone I've thought would be interested. If you didn't get one, A) check your spam folder, B) Sorry just let me know and I'll send you the details.

It's my first time doing a show like this, have no idea what to expect, it's weird not to have stats on views etc.

The Human Brain is Truly Awesome

Bad new for those looking forward to the singularity. Human brain has more switches than all computers on Earth. from the article:

The human brain is truly awesome.

A typical, healthy one houses some 200 billion nerve cells, which are connected to one another via hundreds of trillions of synapses. Each synapse functions like a microprocessor, and tens of thousands of them can connect a single neuron to other nerve cells. In the cerebral cortex alone, there are roughly 125 trillion synapses, which is about how many stars fill 1,500 Milky Way galaxies.

Lady Justice Shoot

Lady Justice Takes the Bus
After the wedding in Ottawa I was able to do a concept shoot with Farrah Ferguson. Now that the wedding pics are done, I've had time to start on the Lady Justice shoot.

Shepherd Book and the Prayer of Saint Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.


Had to look this up after reading it in a comic book, I was quite sure it was the Prayer of Saint Francis. While not credited, it is put to great use in The Shepherd's tale. The story by Joss & Zack Whedon exceeded my hopes for the mysterious story of Shepherd Book. I highly recommend it.
