Upon arriving in Brighton, I ventured a few steps from the bus station and discovered the gorgeous sight found at the pier around sunset. The seagulls were circling from what seemed like every direction, the lights were flashing and the people acted as if like the chilly winds of February on the coast didn’t bother them.
To my loyal followers, I apologize for the delay in getting the first post up since my travels began, but I’ve finally settled a bit and it’s time to start posting again. I hope you are all keeping well in your corner of this globe! This will be a couple of weeks of update until I can muster the courage to keep adventuring to bring you more escapades around the world. Next up should be Europe with my cousin!

In August of 2012, I spent some time in southern Ontario and with that comes the capitol of the province, Toronto. I discovered a random lookout point while driving around and getting lost in the city, and I spent a breakfast and a dinner here on different days. This photograph with the swan and the heavy cover of haze/smog seemed to capture a dramatic side of the city in the wee hours of the summer morning.

A last minute photograph taken just before we headed to the airport to return north seems to be my favourite, or definitely close to it, from my trip to Nevada. Unfortunately, I lost a good majority of the pictures through a technical error on my computer, but I’m working to see what I can recover.
The photograph in question was of a sunrise in Las Vegas on a late Spring morning.

Hello again, friends! I have returned to the internet, as well as North Vancouver! Time for some new pictures, right? That was the point of my trips to Las Vegas and central Washington State!
Being that the second half of my trip was photographing for “work” (can you really call THAT much fun “work”?) for http://www.concertaddicts.ca, I have begun to tackle the massive photo-editing mission in front of me from the middle, to the end, then back to the beginning until I finish back at the middle. If you’re still with me after that one, here’s my first photograph on my way to central Washington.
This was taken at 8:25pm on May 25, 2012. Me and my partner in crime throughout the duration of Sasquatch! Music Festival were headed the Gorge Amphitheater in George, Washington and here we were about halfway there on our drive from Vancouver, British Columbia, so likely just a few miles outside of Seattle. I love that you can spy the word “Travel” along the bottom and the beautiful sunset of this gorgeous late spring evening took my breath away. At a nearby gas station, the attendant didn’t seem quite as impressed with the sky, as he told me that later in the summer, the colours appear much more vibrant.

Along my travels, I’ve seen and capture much street art, especially on the island of Ireland, both in the Republic of and the Northern area. In Dublin, I took a photograph of this bit of art and I love the way it turned out, with the sharp detail and stark contrast.

During my most recent visit to the UK, I decided to stop in to visit a friend I had made at a festival in California the year before. She lived in Royston with her son and in nearby Cambridge, I had an experience I will never forget! Take a look at the photo below.Yes, what you’re seeing is correct. The neck of a guitar sticking out of a trash bin. Playing that neck is the arm of a man. A man who is inside the garbage, playing, as well as singing. By far the most original busker I have ever encountered!

I spent a good portion of my time in Sweden with my cousin and his wife. They are quite possibly the most adorable couple I have ever met! Congratulations to my cousin who is just about graduated! I wish you the best in achieving your dreams.

During my last couple of days in Europe, I hung out with a guy I met at a festival a month or so prior. Bournemouth is a place renowned for the beach and this photo seems to capture my friend’s personality well.

In this photograph, you’ll see the Indian Community Center in Belfast, Northern Ireland. While I was in the city, I was staying with a super rad guy who lived just a few blocks away from this gorgeous building. As you may or may not have realized, I have a thing for architecture!

As you may have noticed, I usually don’t include the country in my title, but in this case, it seemed to fit. While traveling, there’s a lot of passing through. Stranraer, Scotand is a town in the southwest of Scotland, right on the coast. I briefly went by the city on my way from Belfast, Ireland to Glasgow, Scotland. There is a ferry, called the Stena Line, which transports passengers from Belfast to Stranraer and from there, I caught a bus to Glasgow. I happened to arrive just in time for a gorgeous sunset, and what with the beautiful weather here at home these days, I’m all about a gorgeous sky!
