Welcome to Throwback City. Population: Buzzer blog!
With this series we re-publish some awesome old pieces from days in the Buzzer blog’s history.
Today we look at January 16, 2008. The Buzzer blog was a mere pup, not even a year old!
The Canada Line was shiny and brand new and the Buzzer blog editor at the time took to interviewing two talented photographers who just happened to be the artists behind the largest collection of Canada Line construction photos!
Go back in time and enjoy!
Profile: Tafyrn & Seamora Palecloud, Canada Line construction photographers

A double rainbow over the Canada Line’s Operations and Maintenance Centre — one of the many fabulous photos found at Canada Line Photography.
For Friday, here’s the second profile in a series on Lower Mainland transit enthusiasts — our first was on the Trans Vancouver bus photo archive.
Look up “Canada Line photos” in Google, and the first hit you’ll get is Canada Line Photography, an enormous repository of terrific photographs chronicling the train line’s construction.
There are two people behind the site, Tafyrn and Seamora Palecloud, who were kind enough to do an interview with me for the Buzzer blog. (And I did ask about their unusual names: Tafyrn just laughed, saying, “As you probably know, it’s good practice not to use our real names on the internet.”)
So, here’s the interview, and sprinkled throughout you’ll find some of the Canada Line photos that Tafyrn and Seamora consider favourites—they link back to related pages from the Canada Line photo blog, too.
Tafyrn, Seamora — thanks again so much for helping me put this together!
