So much going on here that I’m testing a new wordpress plugin that lets me use Flickr photos in an embedded gallery. Ya, tech/blog stuff you probably don’t care about… but I do.
In the meantime, why not look at my handsome & charming - muse, task master and PIC (that’s partner-in-CheapEats not partner-in-crime)
I have recently started using Instagram more. After balking the trend and lamenting loudly, and frequently, about Instagram’s lack of collaborative, community-building and searching tools, I finally caved. I blame the Food Bloggers of Canada conference. Well, that and Instagram’s slick and quick interface which makes it so easy [...]
Today marks the 9th anniversary of my personal blog – unsweetened.ca (yes, this one!)
The photo above is also the 15000 photo I have loaded to my personal account on Flickr.
If I ever wonder if I’m producing enough, this just answered it for me. Though I have a backlog of photos, posts and ideas just bursting to get ou [...]

Just heading over to the Agile Conference and grabbed a quick breakfast at Canteen (they had a lovely blood orange marmalade this morning) Just checking that flickr blog thing again.

Finally, I’ve got the photos from the reception up on Flickr and ready to share.
The folks at Camaraderie, Toronto’s newest co-working space, invited me to hang a collection on their walls. I have selected the brightest, most vibrant of my photos in a collection called Potential @ Camaraderie to reflect the vibrant folks who work in th [...]
As many of you have voiced your support on my Creative Commons issue with Toronto Life, I thought I’d share the letter I sent them about their use of my photos without permission. [original post about that is here]
I’m writing because 2 of my photos are being used without my permission on your Daily Dish section. Both phot [...]
On request, I am posting the Artist Statement I wrote for 50 Paces: an Installation opening at the Saint John Arts Centre on Friday May 4th. (That’s in Saint John, New Brunswick in case you didn’t know.)
Happily, the universe has worked with us to shift things around enough so I can go to the opening Friday and then spend the we [...]
Given the overwhelming response to including my flickr photos in my RSS feed for unsweetened.ca, it seems that unsweetened_365 is redundant… and, well, kinda more effort than it’s worth to maintain since everything is going to Flickr anyway.
So, kind readers, if you’ve been watching unsweetened_365 please redirect your RSS [...]
Now Available Stacked — Originally uploaded by LexnGer
The guys over on BlogTO have selected this photo as part of their Friday Flickr Forum. It should be up there as part of a selection of photos Friday morning.
Yesterday, Nancy and the rest of the good folks at TPH finished printing the photos for the 50 Paces Project!
A BIG thanks to gkaufman of the Monthly Scavenger Hunt who whipped off a program to generate labels for all the photos. Each photo will be tagged with the title, flickr photographer’s name and where in the world the photo was t [...]

I’m a photo-processing novice and I need some advice. Please!
Here’s the situation:
I have almost 600 images to print for my “50 Paces Project” (www.flickr.com/groups/50paces)
They have mostly been submitted via Flickr, so they vary in resolution and size, but let’s assume mos [...]
For my birthday last year Gerry bought me a Pro membership on Flickr and this year my gift to myself was to renew it. My “gift” to you is this collage of my photos which flickrites tagged as their favourites from 2006

“Presents I’ll remember forever”
In general, my favourite-est gifts have come as packages in the mail, completely as a surprise, from one of the many wonderful people in my world:
The first piece of mail I ever remember getting was a package from Montreal my father sent me while he was away on course. It was a small box fi [...]
