August 4th

Technically a picture of the three of us.
This weekend (which is still happening, as today is a holiday) was so good. Friday night we had movie night in the backyard and it was great, we’re already planning a second. Saturday Jenn came over for brunch and I made cherry pie-stuffed French toast*. Sunday we took Gwen for a walk on the Seawall near Coal Harbour. Today we blew bubbles in the backyard. Just quiet, nice things, which was funny because it was Pride weekend and we live in the city’s gay neighborhood so everyone around us was pretty much partying all weekend long. On Friday when we were watching the movie there was a huge, loud street party going on a block and a half away, and on Sunday I wanted to go to Stanley Park but the parade route effectively cut us off from it so Coal Harbour (where the above pictures were taken) was our second choice.
A long time ago I asked Taylor if he would take the pictures for my blog, I mean he has tons of fancy camera equipment and enjoys photography, so why not, right? It never really works out though. Whenever I ask him to take pictures of anything he immediately starts listing all the extra equipment he’ll need to buy in order to be able to do it “right.” Like when we were making my embarrassing kickstarter video he was all “how will we record the sound?” and I was like “… the cameras have built in microphones?” and he was all fretful about how bad the sound quality would be. He’s also weirdly terrible at taking direction, like I’ll be like “take a picture of this object in this place from this angle,” and instead I get a weird picture of some of the object from a strange angle that’s unusable for my purposes. Also I think he gets too inside his head thinking about arty photography rules and so when I’m like “let’s take a family portrait!” he tries to figure out how to squeeze all of us into 1/3 of the frame because negative space and rule of thirds, and I’m just like… dude. Also it takes him FOREVER to upload pics, and since I usually blog a couple times a week I can’t be waiting three weeks for my pictures, guy. Anyway here are some pics he’s taken over the last few weeks.

*To make cherry pie-stuffed French toast, just make “sandwiches” using canned cherry pie filling and French toast them, easy-peasy.
