Uncertain Road

I woke last night in the darkness to the rumbling sound of a heavy train passing through the city, threading through the quiet neighbourhoods with its horn calling a long, keening wail. I lay awake listening as the sound repeated, feeling anxious, sad, wishing that I might wake in the morning to a world noContinue reading “Uncertain Road”

Summer Horizon | Big Sur, California

Having spent a couple of years on the Canadian prairie now, I realize that what I miss most about the California coast is not exactly the ocean itself, but rather the air; dense fog, constantly shifting breezes humid with sea mist, and the resulting ethereal quality in the light. I find that this image capturesContinue reading “Summer Horizon | Big Sur, California”

Summer Prairie Skies

The sky is bigger on the prairie, and the sunsets some of the most gorgeous I have ever seen; constantly shifting weather, swirling clouds, and a golden hour that lasts forever… As I spend more time travelling across Saskatchewan and Manitoba my library of spectacularly surreal sunsets will continue to grow – find them allContinue reading “Summer Prairie Skies”

Moss Landing, California

Tucked between Highway 1 and the broad horizon of Monterey Bay on the California coast is the quaint, colorful, seaside fishing town of Moss Landing. On a whim one early spring day, I decided to explore the quiet streets and old storefronts of this weathered hamlet. Tucked along the edges of Moss Landing Harbor andContinue reading “Moss Landing, California”

Pigeon Point Lighthouse, California

Blustery, stormy skies and tempestuous crashing ocean waves are the perfect backdrop for a lighthouse and all of the history it represents. I’d driven past Pigeon Point Light Station State Historic Park dozens of times, passing by while driving the scenic and dramatic Highway 1 along the central coast of California. After years of admiringContinue reading “Pigeon Point Lighthouse, California”

On the road, West coast wandering

Currently on a roadtrip, camping and sight-seeing along the Pacific Northwest coast and then driving inland to explore states and mountains I’ve never seen with my own eyes and am very excited to photograph. I will be posting snapshots when possible to @photoapk on Instagram, and when I return to the digital darkroom I’ll beContinue reading “On the road, West coast wandering”

Road-trippin’

Big Sur bound, originally uploaded by A.p.K. Having long believed that the journey is the destination, I am as much a fan of the act of traveling, as I am a fan of actually arriving in a new place. Last weekend was a marathon roadtrip though, through a landscape altogether strange to me – SouthernContinue reading “Road-trippin’”

salt-flat photoshoot

salt-flat photoshoot, originally uploaded by A.p.K. If I said I planned this shot, at 80mph somewhere on the I-80 near Bonneville, would you believe me? Best viewed large, with a magnifying glass. 😉 While returning from a working roadtrip to Salt Lake City, this line of human figures in the desolate landscape caught my eye. Continue reading “salt-flat photoshoot”
