I’m in love with shop houses. I want one. Actually, I want two, next to each other, so I can merge them together so they’re not super narrow like shop house tend to be. I think China House in Penang is actually four houses, and restored and decorated perfectly. It’s a big maze of art and dining spaces and even has a beautiful courtyard in the middle. This place inspires creativity <3
So now that I’m pretty much all caught up processing my archives of long lost photos, I wanted to do a couple of short posts on cool places. I’ve been mean to post this set for… oh… about a year, since I took them.
I love Nk’Mip wine. Probably my favorite of all BC wines (and BC wines are pretty much my favorite of all wines… call me biased… whatever…) I digress. Anyways, I was lucky enough to spend a night at their winery resort last year. It was at the end of winter so not much was a alive, and we were only there for the night and didn’t even stay long enough to tour the winery – sad face – but it was a beautiful place. Loved the desert inspired architecture and interior design; it fit right into the landscape. Maybe one of these days I’ll be in the Okanagan at a more winery tour friendly time of year.
Apparently there’s a Danish church just behind my house. I had no idea. I had the pleasure of shooting Svenna’s baptism there last week. I don’t think most of the people there were Danish, but the service was mostly in Danish. I still haven’t quite figured it all out.
Finally at the end of my Java photos. This was my second time in Jogja and I still love it. Maybe even more than my first time. Really looking forward to being able to spend a few months there at some point to study more Bahasa. It’ll happen.
I’m in Thailand now, but in an effort to feel like I’m still working, I thought I should post another set from Java.
I’ve finally decided which of these shadow puppets I want: Baruna, God of the Sea. If anyone would like to find me a nice and authentic one and send it to me, I would be forever grateful.
Also… I’m posting this from a hammock.
