Sittin on top of the world.

So while the rest of you were lying around on the couch in your underwear, hypnotized by the Olympics, my sister and I decided to climb a mountain. These photos are further proof I live in the best place on earth.

This was a our pump-up song before the hike and also our celebration song after the hike:

Cat Stevens – Can’t Keep It In

Waterfall!

Me and my backpack!

My sister and a friend!

Beautiful British Columbia, living up to its name!

  • Killer blog man. Killer. I’ll be adding you to the blogroll.

    i wasn’t on no couch; i was climbing up Mount Horrid in Vermont! Great photos. It’s so worth the climb, no? :)

  • Damn I am SOOO jealous. That looks amazing. How far is that from where you actually live?Oh and Cat Steven’s is awesome. Great pump up song!

  • Oh and great photos too. I like the wide shot especially, nice self placement off to the side.

  • wow, amazing place and amazing photos to describe it. your colors are so nice.

  • it’s about 1.5hrs from where i live. pretty lucky, i think everyone here in vancouver takes it for granted. yea that last photo is a quick photoshop job, i took about 5 or 6 photos for a full 360 panorama from the top of the mountain from the same place where someone took the photo of my sister and i.

    and ya Cat Stevens is the BEST.

  • Jess, so worth it! how was mount Horrid? is that really the name? haha

    Adam – thanks man yea it was amazing standing at the top, half of those photos my sister took.

  • Yo Jeff, photos look amazing man.

    We just did a trip in the Adirondacks, Upstate New York’s answer to British Columbia haha.

    From your pictures it looks like your mountains are slightly more amazing but check out the pics from out trip you will defiantly appreciate them if your a fan of skipping the Olympics for hiking a mountain.

    ha, nope that’s really the name. i had to double check, too.

  • Kyle

    Is that a chief? I mean the view looks like it from the panorama but the others I can’t really tell!

  • yea its from the chief!

    phil, your photos are great! love the bridge jumping!

    The next step is “The Grind”

    I know you vowed never to do it, but just do it already.

  • Doing The Grind after The Chief would be such a step down. it would literally be like winning the lottery and then getting kicked in the nuts.

  • dope pics man. what camera did you shoot these with? or did you fake film it in photoshop? haha. i’m diggin the blog though. keep up the good work!

  • haha you betta believe its photoshop

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
