I did a shoot with Irene in downtown Victoria on Saturday afternoon. I love the colourful graffiti around. The first one with the windows is on Fisgard just a bit east of Government Street. I’ve been dying to do a shoot there, because I think the colours are gorgeous. The shots with the darker graffiti and the colourful rolling door are from the alley next to Bastion Square, near the Yates parkade. If you’re a photographer in Victoria, you should check them out.
I used my flash and new 85mm lens for this entire shoot and I think they worked awesomely together.
I’m so happy that the girls on the board of the Greater Victoria Animal Crusaders (GVAC) gave me a chance to redesign their website. Here it is, if you want to have a look (or if you’re looking to adopt an animal or donate to a great cause). I made the site using WordPress, just like I did for this site. I thought it would give the volunteers an easy way to update the site, without having a lot of technical knowledge. Some of them have taken to it really fast and even discovered some things I didn’t know WordPress could do. I’m still tweaking the design here and there and adding plugins to make things work better. We should be adding a blog section in the near future with updates and cute stories about the foster animals.
We’re currently looking for someone to volunteer to design a new logo for GVAC. I think I’m pretty good at web design, but terrible at logo design. If you’re a graphic designer looking to help out a charity, please contact me.
I’m currently fostering a beautiful cat named Baby. Below are some photos I took of her. I’m not sure what kind of cat she is, but I think she looks like a miniature Maine Coon. She’s quite sassy and independent. She spent the first week smacking my poor little Isabelle in the face and biting her ear, but Izzy didn’t really seem to mind. Now, she’s playing with Freddie and Izzy all the time. When I had a bunch of people over the other night, she was super social. She even snuggled up on my belly when I was lying on the couch last night. Anyone want to adopt a sweet yet tough cat in Victoria?
