Figured an update was in order since I’ve been pretty busy with lots of things since the summer.
A few nights before halloween, I figured it was time to carve up a pumpkin down at my local indoor shooting range:
Of course, this was all preparation for me to shoot real zombies, however instead of with a 9mm handgun, I used my DSLR to cover the annual Thrill the World Vancouver event. They set a new record for the number of zombies simultaneously dancing to Michael Jackson’s Thriller – 434! They also raised over $4400 for the food bank.
This year’s event was at night which presented some photographic challenges but that’s what giant LED light boxes are for.
You can view my full set of photos from the event on Flickr.
At the end of September I visited Fairmont Hot Springs, BC. and did a couple of guest blog posts over at Miss604.com. Easily the highlight for me was the hidden natural hot springs waterfall:
and I used my GoPro to capture the salmon run that was happening underneath my kayak while on a sightseeing tour:
I also got up close and personal with a bear cub on the resort grounds:
I had actually just finished in the spa and was following the bear cub around in my robe and flip flops. The momma bear wasn’t in the area…we saw her the next day and she was as big as a VW beetle.
Speaking of furry animals, I also got a new kitten recently. A female orange tabby that I’ve named Pixel:
And lastly, this year I’ve decided to throw my face into the ring (?) and participate in Movember. I’m actually going to grow my facial hair, even though I can just print a mustache on my 3D printer:
I’ve lost a number of people I care about recently to cancer and figured it was time to endure a month of awkward looks with a creepy janitor-esque mustache. Although I may try and do a fu man chu if my follicles play along. If you’d like to donate, please visit my Movember page. I thank you in advance for your support.
