What we do when it snows…

Vancouver is finally getting some snow! Here I am looking very excited (and wearing the exact thing I am in every single photo on this website – it’s like I am a poor clown with only one costume). The reason I am excited is because this snowy weather can only mean one thing… (there’s a hint somewhere in this picture)…

    Oh man I miss BBQ’s. My BBQ season was cut waaay to short this summer. We will need to get the propane tanks burning again in Jan when I return, Hamada.

    I love your only costume, as well as snow barbecue.
    We need snow over here, too.

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
