The driver

It’s finally happened. She decided it was time to practice for her driving test.

Almost two years of cajoling to get to this stage. I thought it would never come.

Now I get to shoot from the passenger’s seat.

Another day, another dollar

It rained overnight. Not that it matters. Out of bed, over to the congress centre. Escape from the windowless meeting rooms to take a call in the lobby.

There was good light.

L’affaire est ketchup

Went back to Québec City for a family thing last weekend and had a few hours to kill in the St-Roch district on Sunday morning; I couldn’t help myself and snapped away like a kid in a candy store.

FYI, “l’affaire est ketchup” loosely translates as “it’s all good” or “everything’s cool” from québecois joual.

The lobby

One of the few redeeming architectural features of the lobby of the Sheraton in Bloomington, MN is the way the light hits the lobby’s courtyard (very) early in the morning.

When the light is gone… well, at least there’s a decent bar, so not all is lost.

The glamour


A hotel. A business park. An hour to kill in the morning.

Could be anywhere. Could be somewhere. Could be nowhere.

But the camera follows.
