Dome Through a Dome

Shot on impulse back when I was making regular use of the gym underneath the Alberta Legislature.

Pipeline Pig

This was used to clean an oil pipeline. It's now on display in Delta Junction, Alaska (or was when I drove through in 2011).

Tropical Shores

I'm not sure if it really  comes through on the blog, but I'm pretty happy with the vibrancy and composition of this photo, which I shot in 2008 while Sylvia and I were flying over Hawaii in a helicopter on our honeymoon.

Poor Superman

Poor Henry Cavill, chosen to fill the role of one  of humanity's greatest pop culture icons, doomed to star as that character in only one decent but fatally flawed film, one bad film with a few good moments, and one genuinely terrible movie that should never have been made. (In order: Man of Steel, Justice League, and Batman v. Superman.) Now, he's a Superman no more,  although there seems to be a bit of back-and-forth in the news on whether or not Cavill's contract has indeed been terminated.

For what it's worth, I've been impressed by Cavill's performances as Superman and in other films; it's not his fault that he's been saddled with mediocre-to-terrible screenplays to  work with. And I would have loved to see him cameo alongside Captain Marvel (the real Captain Marvel) in Shazam!, which looks like a  lot more fun than most of the recent DC movies, but it looks like that's not in the cards.

But who knows? Superman will return, one way or another. I just hope Henry gets to play the character in at least one genuinely great movie.
