TPA Sunset

When I fly back to Tampa from Vancouver this time of year we land around sunset. Aside from the occasional iPhone photo, by the time I get off the plane its usually too late to get a good shot. This day I got out of the terminal and headed straight to the top level of the parking garage to capture this picture. Oddly enough, I wasn’t the only one, a group of about eight people including a few children where there to watch the sunset as well. I remember the dad saying to his impatient son, “look while you can, you don’t see many sunsets it your life, this is one of the few”. I thought that was cool, but in a way kinda sad. I mean except for weather, every day we have sunsets, it’s just a matter of whether we choose to take the time to notice. This photo is all about that.

Grouse Mountain Sunset

On the day that I took this there was sun, clouds and the occasional snow storm. I remember this because I had just arrived from Florida and had a light jacket with a t-shirt, …basically over dressed for Florida. About thirty minutes before sunset a snow squall quickly came through and reduced visibility to zero. I ran for the lodge but was covered in snow, however within ten minutes it had passed. Such is the dynamic weather up top the peaks surrounding Vancouver. Now if I can just remember to pack a sweater.

Yacht Club

This is the False Creek Yacht Club in Vancouver. I honestly don’t know anything about it, I just happened to be walking by with my camera and was struck by the design of the building, as well as the location just under a large bridge. It seems wherever I walk in Vancouver I end up with unexpected sights that interest me as a photographer. This is just one of several that I’ll be posting from a walk this evening.

Terminal D

I travel through Dallas airport frequently and Terminal D is my favorite hangout. Not only is it the most recently constructed with more stores and restaurants than most malls, it has art such as this sculpture placed throughout the terminal. Photography has opened my eyes to art wherever I see it. For instance, there are intricately laid tile mosaics on the floor and I, like many, walk right over them without a notice. One of these days I’ll try to capture those as well.

Time Slip

The day I took this I had to stay in my hotel room and work when I wanted to go out and take pictures. Nonetheless I got the idea to setup my camera and take multiple exposures throughout dusk and evening, this being the result. I was fortunate to have a nice view this week, usually I’m on a much lower floor looking at other buildings. This picture has multiple exposures combined, sunset on the top and evening on the bottom. I guess you can say I am moved time around to suit the shot.

Hidden

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.

DeSoto Magic

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.
