I wonder if the child that built this had any idea someone would come along with a tripod and photograph it and then put it on a blog where people all over the world can see it. I think not. But, that’s what I did, and whomever created this, I’d like to thank you, we can all now admire your fine work.

Yesterday I resolved to take a short walk and stopped by this lake. I’ve taken and posted others from here so I almost walked by. In the end I liked the shot an am beginning to realize that no matter how many times I’ve photographed a particular place, there are infinite perspectives to record and share. This is Hidden Lake in Stanley Park, it’s one of several I’ve posted from this location and, …probably not the last.

In many cases I prefer to take a picture after the sunset, the sky tends to be a little deeper and if the clouds are right, the glow can last for fifteen minutes or more. The waves appear calm which is due to the long exposure I used. Actually this is a combination of exposures which is what gives it the surreal feel. But come to think of it, the picture is about as close as I can get to the colors I experienced over that fifteen minute period. A magical moment indeed.

In Vancouver, at the furthest point along the Stanley Park seawall trail is this unusual formation known as Siwash Rock. Native Americans assign importance to this and the first time I saw it I too felt something special. It is the home of a couple of Canadian Geese which I know because I hiked to the overlook a few weeks ago and could clearly see the two, one resting and one surveying the sea. I’d think that among geese this is a coveted place to call home. Nonetheless, hundreds if not thousands of cyclist, joggers and hikers pass this rock each day. Seems like a great place for people watching, …especially if your a goose.

This is the downtown section of Vancouver viewed from Grouse Mountain ski lodge. I’m not sure in what other North American cosmopolitan city folks have access to the slopes with public transit, but in Vancouver it’s not uncommon to see people standing at a bus stop with their snowboard or skis. This evening I took a tram and was rewarded with a spectacular view. While there I met other photographers and a poet from Brazil, it seemed everyone was inspired by the vista. I had no trouble using up two or three hours taking photos and enjoying the view.

This was taken at Bradenton Beach just after sunset. It seemed this Blue Heron was happy to pose, or perhaps it was just eyeing a fish. Nevertheless, everyday at sunset hundreds of visitors and residents alike line up on this beach to snap a photo as the sun goes down. We have a favorite restaurant on this beach and there’s usually live music at sunset, a nice setting. For years they had this musician who always sung “Here Comes the Sun”. To me that seems a little odd, …isn’t that about a sunrise?

This is another sunset at Lost Lagoon in Vancouver’s Stanley Park. What captivated me was that in the heart of this city, not a single person stopped here to enjoy the sunset except these two geese. Frankly, they looked quite content to be here and didn’t mind one bit that I was taking their picture, or at least the picture of the sunset with them in it. Geese are people too, right?
