AWOL in Toronto for NxNE

Just a quick update here from Toronto. That's right. I'm in Toronto right now - my first time (I know, I know). I've been invited to be the photographer for Vancouver-based Guttersnipe website for their NxNE festival coverage.

This also partially explains why I haven't been posting as many updates on this blog, as I've been spending much more time improving (or at least trying to improve) my concert photography skills, which you can also find on the aforementioned site.

Needless to say, my updates here are going to be hit and miss for the next little while. Will report back on my NxNE escapades shortly!

Steller sea lions in Steveston

My uncle runs a water taxi business based out of Steveston. On Sunday, May 23rd he invited us for a quick tour 10km down the mouth of the Fraser River to the lighthouse at the end of the breakwater known as "Sandheads". It's here along the rocks where we encountered sea lions basking in the sun. May is the last month of the annual Steller sea lion migration.
