Real Vancouver Writer Series

Finally posting my last images from the Vancouver/Olympic trip and these were taken when I first got there. I saw an ad for the Real Vancouver Writer Series a the W2 Culture + Media House on Hasting Street and thought I’d check it out. There were four evenings in the series and I was only able to stay for a short time at the second event in the series but had a chance to hear Charles Demers, Jenn Farrell and Chris Walter. I couldn’t stay to hear him read but had a nice chat with Kevin Chong who I hadn’t seen in several years. Oddly enough I then passed him on Broadway a week later while rushing to an appointment (it’s not that small of a city). Actually I also saw Chris Walter and his family walk by a week later as well while I doing a photo shoot with DOA in East Van, again it’s not that small of a city. Event was hosted by Sean Cranbury, bookman about town. I also noticed a man there with grey hair, someone aside from myself, who I had no idea who he was until I was looking at the Real Vancouuver Writers site checking for ID’s tonight and it turned out be Ian Weir who I haven’t seen since my first photography job a hundred years ago at the Kamloops Daily Sentinel. Wished I’d known that at the event. I must say it was great to see the place jammed with people out for a reading.

  1. I love the one of the tattooed guy. I’m not brave enough myself to get my head tattooed but I do still want a giant jellyfish on my back.
