Hello, I’ve given this long standing website of mine a little overhaul, new art and tattooing portfolios, a new contact form and books, prints and ephemera website links. 34 more words

Tattoo Portfolio

A Rose is A Rose, is A Rose.

During the summer I spent five weeks in the UK, mostly staying with my mother in Hastings. She has a beautiful garden and across the street from her home is a beautiful rose garden in Alexandra Park. 67 more words

800 block Beatty Street - north side

We’re looking up Beatty Street from Smithe Street. These warehouse buildings date back over a century, and this 1926 image shows them already looking well used. 696 more words

Still Standing

Songs of the Ephemeral

A few Months ago I got to add to Carol’s collection with a really fun and dynamic chest piece, after we had completed the project I got the chance to take some photographs of her leg all healed. 20 more words

Homer Street Methodist Church

Here’s the second Methodist Church built in the city, constructed only three years after the first one was built on Water Street. The dramatic growth in population after the railway arrived saw that building to be entirely inadequate, and this imposing new structure was put up in a recently cleared area not too far from the CPR’s new Granville St hub, but not so far from the population concentrated in the original Old Granville Townsite to the east and north of here. 236 more words

High School - Dunsmuir Street (1)

Here’s the Vancouver High School on Dunsmuir Street, with the ‘Public School’ (as it’s referred to on the 1901 Insurance Map) in the background, on the same block, further north on West Pender Street. 387 more words

Finished John’s Chrysanthemum and shot some nice new healed pics of his other work……
