During the last year I lived in three cities across two continents. I went from documenting Aboriginal culture on west coast of Canada to walking on frozen lakes under the Aurora in Canada’s Great White North to moving all the way back home to the Emerald Isle. I shot over 25,000 photos in 2013 and am so thankful to have a record of the year it’s been. Looking forward to another year of exploration and creativity.

Friday (11 Nov 2011) was an excellent night for music in Vancouver with The Wombats’ gig at Venue. Support came from the very exuberant and talented The Static Jacks. Photos of The Wombats and The Static Jacks can be found on SceneInTheDark and photos from the second support band, The Postelles (motowm sounding New Yorkers), can be found below.  Ahhhh…music photography…so much fun!
