Urban Garden

Rick Urban, Vancouver 0 Comments

In certain neighborhoods of Vancouver can be found urban gardens where residents work with the soil to produce vegetables or just beautiful flowers. The gardens have little plots, each uniquely representing the labor of the local gardener. As someone who walks through this city, I really enjoy the energy that comes from these little havens in the concrete jungle.

Fort De Soto Lookout

Rick Florida, Landscape, Sunset, Tampa 0 Comments

This is a lookout used by spotters for the mortar battery used during the Spanish American War. Now I think the only thing you might look out for is a passing cruise ship or the sunset. Fort De Soto Park has camping, trails, kayaking, bike paths, and wind sailing to name just a few. However, the four legged members of our family like the dog park and beach where they can frolic in the waves on a hot day.

Residence Inn Lobby

Rick Architecture, HDR 0 Comments

This is the lobby of the Residence Inn in Vancouver. I only stayed here once but my first impression was that “it’s not your father’s” Residence Inn. Apparently it was recently renovated and the rooms where all state of the art, very clean and modern. Late one night when I came in from a photo walk I took this while the lobby was empty. I think I caught the hotel manager by surprise as I setup my tripod. In any case, once I got the picture I headed up to my room to use the state of the art microwave to make a bag of popcorn.

Night Reflection

Rick HDR, Night Photography, Urban, Vancouver 0 Comments

When I take the time to look up when walking at night in a big city I’m always surprised at what I see. That comes partially from my developing a sense of as photographer and partially from living in a small town where the tallest thing around is a Palm Tree. In any case, this was the last photo I took one night while on what should have been a short walk from the subway back to my hotel in Vancouver. The problem of course is that I kept looking up and seeing interesting scenes like this. It ended up a late night.

Nakomis Sunset

Rick Florida, HDR, Landscape, Sunset 0 Comments

I can never get tired of Florida Gulf Coast sunsets. And apparently I’m not the only one, dozens of people showed up on this evening just to watch the sun go down. I don’t know why but it amazes me that people show up to watch the earth rotate to the point that our star is no longer visible. Maybe there’s something larger going on, or maybe I’m just over-thinking it. Probably a little of both.

Manatee Bridge

Rick Bridges, Florida, HDR, Landscape 0 Comments

In Bradenton Florida you cross this bridge to get to Anna Marie Island and Holmes Beach. When the tide is moving the bridge is full of fishermen and it’s my understanding that the fish move with the tide, however don’t take my word for it as fishing is not one of my stronger suits. That’s a polite way of saying I suck at fishing. Even so I like to fish on occasion even if I’m only feeding the fish all my bait.

Burrard Afternoon

Rick Bridges, HDR, Landscape, Urban, Vancouver 0 Comments

This is the Burrard Bridge in Vancouver. I shot this in the late afternoon when people were out walking and enjoying the scenery. This section of town is known as West End and it runs along False Creek into English Bay. If you look closely you’ll see three ladies sitting on a log enjoying a picnic and the scenery of English Bay.
