The Live Like Water Story: The Chinatown Years

These are pictures from the Chinatown years in Vancouver BC. Taken during the time I had no Camera.Well my Nikon Fm was out of commission and I couldn’t afford to have it fixed.These shots were taken by Al Roy, Arthur and myself using their cameras. As long as I had my typerwriters and paper I was fine. I, in those days I wrote instead of photographing. Only towards the end of my stay I did some shooting and self portraits using Tri X.But you’ll see those pictures in due time; I’m a tea turtle after all! The Last two pictures are from when I went dark and atmospheric! I’ve never returned to the light since… well and update I can share the Live Like Water web site … steep on by www.livelikewater.com
