Project Management Training

I have been wanting to delivery professional training for quite some time.  I was therefore really excited when I was asked by NPM to deliver some Project Management training for them.  As part of brushing up on PMI Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), I have started to update and add additional content to the original “PMBOK Abbreviated” series I had started almost two years ago.  I am currently engaged in a six-week training session for CAPM certification at BCIT.  As I deliver each session, I will aim to update the series I had originally started.  So keep an eye out for additional content @ PMBOK Abbreviated.pmbok2


Cascades Train Ride

I have been riding the Amtrak Cascades for a some years now visiting family in Portland, OR. The last time I took the train back to Vancouver, BC the lighting seemed perfect and I was inspired to snap some shots of the farmland and small town Washington state.

Chihuly Garden Visit July 2015

I recently took a visit to the Chihuly Garden and Glass. It is a museum in the Seattle Center next to the Space Needle showcasing the studio glass work of Dale Chihuly. I went to see the exhibit inadvertently as something to do with my family and was not sure what to expect. Much to my surprize, this was an unforgettable visual adventure. The intricate details, contrasting colours and the physical representation of forms in every piece was breathtaking and provides never-ending options for some great abstract photography. I did not have my Nikon with me; but tried to take some interesting pictures with my Z30.

A Ferry Ride to Galiano Island

We took a trip to Galiano Island back in February. I had recently acquired a Samsun Galaxy S4 and decided to take some experimental shots with the phone camera. I was really surprised by the quality of pictures that the phone took – even from behind the dusty windows of the ferry. On the way back to Tsawwassen terminal, I was able to capture some spectacular shots of Mount Baker.

Dubai Visit in December 2014

I took some quick shots with my phone camera during a really short visit to Dubai last year.  Some of them turned out worth sharing.  You be the judge…
