Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page
Tracker Pixel for Entry

Today was a Flickr day.

I started off attended a particularly fun Vandigicam event on Granville island.  The idea was to show up with an interesting prop, then photograph a partner, and practice your portraiture skills.  My friend Rachael did a great service by organizing it.

I decided that portraits of people’s feet would be just as interesting as people’s faces, so I made a little game: Guess the Feet.

I took a few good photos; the one of Dave above turned out rather nicely.  There were also a handful of good photos taken of me, like this one by Christina.

So, inspired by this event, when I got home I looked through Flickr for people named Travis, and I discovered something awful.  It seems that many “Travis” people are awkward, goofy, non-photogenic and in need of a shave.  I decided that I clearly didn’t belong with that crowd of ruffians, so I went through Flickr and tagged EVERY PHOTO of myself with this tag: travissmith

From now on, and going back to the beginning of time and beyond, please tag all reference to me with “travissmith” and I’ll be forever grateful.

If You Are Reading This on Friday


“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

Hey, I was just catching up on blogs to let my subconscious figure out an annoying problem to solve, and have concluded I need to read this more regularly. And/or revert to being a blogger. Anyway, I'm glad you liked that totally serious, highly photogenic shot of you being poised and not at all ruffianish. Also that my purple pants nearly match the colour scheme here.
