Of Aerodynamics and Life
January 19, 2006
Leonardo Da Vinci wrote "Once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return." Recently thinking about this in the middle of the night, I found myself drifting towards strangely complicated horizons for a while and then suddenly, it all made sense. Through the mists of sleep, I ended up laying down a comparison of life with the principles of flight and aerodynamics. Here is what I recov...
Chinatown Shapes and Colours
January 3, 2006
An expedition to Vancouver's Chinatown, third biggest in North America, is always quite mesmerizing.

Boats in the Fog - Burrard Inlet
December 12, 2005
I will soon be putting a new Vancouver photo gallery online. Until then, I'll post glimpses and previews of the ongoing work here, on the blog.Today Sunday, the fog rolled in and downtown Vancouver became but a ghostly imitation of itself. Sounds were muffled and colors dulled, but in the end the sun prevailed and managed to wash the high peaks above the city in a glowing orange salute.The next few posts will depict the scene, once a day beginning now, noblesse oblige, with...
