Some of the biggest and most prolific car manufacturers in the world are right here in Germany- Daimler Mercedes Benz, Porsche, BMW, and Volkswagen. So when our host, Max, and some of his buds offered to take us out for a day trip […]

Being in Germany means there’s a lot of old stuff. And when I say old, I mean towns, buildings and even graves that are older than the nation I come from. We had the fortune of being given a tour of Marburg, a city in the state of Hesse, roughly in the middle of Germany. […]

Our time in the small town of Bad Orb, population ~10,000, has been quite interesting. For most anything of importance, you have to leave the town, and travel a minimum of 20 minutes to one of the surrounding, larger, cities. That is, of course, barring a visit to a brewery.

So I’ve got a new camera. In case you care, it’s a Nikon D7000, and I got a Nikkor 50/1.8 lens for those awesome short focal-range shots, an 18-200 zoom lens, and a SB-700 flash. In the next few months, I’ll be traveling through Europe, checking out some of the culture it has to offer, […]

It’s about that time again… The glow of the Summer 2012 lines has begun to fade, and the incredible pieces you saw at Vancouver Fashion Week and Eco Fashion Week has finally drifted from your dreams. This is all to be replaced by the dread of winter, looking forward to bed by 10pm only to […]

Recently, I had the pleasure of being cordially invited to the showing of Lotus Eye’s latest line of custom-designed modern Saris and Indian-influenced pieces. The event took place at the Ayden Art Gallery in Vancouver, and when I arrived it was absolutely packed. Aside from the expected mix of Vancouver’s fashion elite in attendance, there […]

Tonight, something magical graced the city of Vancouver; overtaken by fans of all ages donning everything from fedoras to single white gloves, Rogers Arena played host to the most amazing and magical spectacle it ever has, or likely ever will: the “Michael Jackson IMMORTAL World Tour by Cirque du Soleil” was in town. Well over […]

Coconut husk ‘red carpet’? Check. Recycled lanyards? Check. Secondary venue for the runway, accessed through a back alleyway that’s so New York? Check, baby, check. Oh yes, this is definitely the Eco Fashion Week we all love, and it’s all grown up. Hosted this season in the heart of Gastown, Vancouver Eco Fashion Week Spring/Summer […]
