Equipment – New 50mm F/1.8


My tried and tested 50mm finally died 🙁

<a moment of silence>

I initially bought the lens back ~2007 off a coworker that had two because he loved it so much. It’s been my go-to lens for travel, portraiture, and anything not sports for the last umpteen years. I think everyone should learn on / have at least one prime in their bag. This lens is a sharp workhorse that’s always helped me get the job done.

Now, enter the new guy

He’s a little smaller, lighter, and quieter (all good things). Hopefully, we’ll have half as many adventures together as his predecessor.

Personal – I’m VUL Volunteer of the Year

When I’m not cranking out client work from my laptop, or biking around town, I’m probably playing Ultimate (Frisbee, …not Fighting Championship).

I’ve been playing Ultimate since 2003. I started in Highschool, then played for UBC-B, and then a Men’s competitive touring team. After that, I moved on to coaching Provincial Junior Teams and Highschools. Most recently, I’ve been volunteering my time to mentor teams for the Vancouver Ultimate League (VUL) who are just getting started/need a little more direction.

As a result, this year, I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of two Volunteers of the Year!

Nice to get some kudos from the League + $100 gift card to Rackets & Runners! You can see the full article on the VUL site here.
