if you squint just wrong

Sometimes my favourite photos happen by accident. 

While peering through the view-finder to get a better angle to photograph something else entirely, I noticed that a collision of overhead lights had doubled up to make the shadows cast by the camera in my hands look sort of otherworldly. Or at the very least, like a fabric pattern left over from the 60's.

I think it swings.

In other - more linky - news, I'd like to offer up some of my recently published scribblings:

In the latest edition of Latent Image, my short story called The Handbook of Facultative Morphology.

On the National Music Centre website, two articles about the new exhibition spaces - Amped Up Exhibitions at Studio Bell and Behind the Scenes: Developing NMC's Exhibitions. 

May you always see the good in the weird.

Hey Barbara, Cool-O on the pic and the three texts. "The Handbook" had me in a grip, and the articles were also excellent. National Music Centre, Rolling Stones mobile studio ~ how cool is all that?

Now at some point I will aim to traverse the 2483.2 kilometer distance betwixt here and Calgary. . .

Thank you, Erik! I am glad you like my scribblings and my odd view through the camera lens. If you ever make it up to Calgary, we must meet up and I can show you my city.

So I squinted just wrong enough to see a big breasted woman in an evening gown doing crunches.

How did I not see that before, John? Now I can't unsee it...
