Urban Sunrise

Rick HDR, Urban, Vancouver 0 Comments

When I travel from east coast to west I wake up early. I mean early early. So on this day I setup my camera and waited for the sun to rise and this was the scene outside my hotel window. I suspect that most of the people in these buildings were still in la la land, as would I be if I were on my own coast. Follow link to obtain a limited edition print of this photo.

Siesta Key

Rick Landscape, Sarasota 0 Comments

Siesta Key is a little village not far from where I live. Funny thing is I find the only time I go there is when guest come to town. In an effort to turn that around I headed there to shoot the sunset last week and I enjoyed it so much I’m planning on going back, hopefully before our next guests arrive.

Wages of Sin

Rick B&W, Urban, Vancouver 0 Comments

Lately I’ve started to shoot a little urban street photography which you’ll see more of in the coming weeks. I suppose it’s best to let the scenes speak for themselves and leave it up to your own interpretation. This is on the popular and eclectic Robson street in downtown Vancouver.

Yaletown Condo

Rick Architecture, Urban, Vancouver 0 Comments

I like Thomas Hawk’s photography which has a lot of buildings at odd angles. This not so much, but I’m intrigued by the regular pattern of lines in the architecture. This photo is from the Yaletown section of Vancouver and I know that because the name of the subway stop nearby is Yaletown Roundhouse. A place where the rail roundhouse operated in ages past and now a trendy section of town. But then, when it comes to Vancouver, pretty much every section of town is trendy. It’s a trendy city.

Cambie Night

This is looking down towards the Cambie Bridge across Vancouver at night. What I like most is the size of the mountains in the back. Coming from a flat place like Florida I can never get enough of the huge mountains surrounding Vancouver. In any case, this epitomizes this city; always busy, full of life, yet surrounded by the big beautiful Canadian Rockies. Follow link to obtain a limited edition print of this photo.

Chef Boyardee

Rick Urban, Vancouver 0 Comments

This is not Chef Boyardee, although it’s the first thing that came to mind when I saw this on a back alleyway in the south side of Vancouver. I don’t think there was even a restaurant on this building but I thought it was cool in contrast to the gritty alley. I’ve started noticing a lot more street art and appreciate the creativity that goes into it. Art is everywhere, and we just have to stop and look, which is sometimes harder than it sounds.

The Whole Shebang

Rick HDR, Landscape, Vancouver 0 Comments

I call this the whole shebang because this has a bunch of my favorite elements all in one shot. On this evening the rain has stopped long enough to give a hint of sunset over False Creek in Vancouver. The rowing crew had just finished and as I approached I noticed that several other photographers were here for this shot as well. I briefly chatted with one photographer who was from Germany, and boy was he serious. But then I can appear serious also well when I have fading light. If I’m “in the zone” trying to make the best …

Tortouga Gazebo

Rick Florida, HDR, Landscape 0 Comments

I took this from Bradenton Beach about a day after the first named storm of the year. In Florida we have a semi-tropical climate and so our summer is almost like winter meaning we get a lot of storms. Of course, afterwards the clouds are awesome and everyone, and I mean everyone, is down by the beach at sunset taking photos and wishing it would never end.

Burrard and Pender

Rick HDR, Night Photography, Vancouver 0 Comments

The corner of Burrard and Pender is in the business district of Vancouver and so there are fewer people walking around at night. This night was rainy so even fewer were out as I stood in the shelter of a building to compose this. What attracts me to night photography are the lights which transform a location into something completely different and the relative calm of the setting, depending of course on the location. I could stay out all night composing shots, alas have a day job. Follow link to obtain a limited edition print of this photo.
