Hidden Bridge

Actually this bridge isn’t hidden at all, it’s crossed by thousands of pedestrians and cyclists daily at the entrance to Stanley Park in Vancouver. I’ve included a Google Maps Link to this spot to get another perspective. It’s such a scenic little spot that at the same moment I came here to capture this, another photographer was setup not five feet away pointing in the opposite direction. I always try to smile and make conversation when I met other photographers, but it’s been my experience those with tripods are serious, absorbed in their craft and not likely to chat much. Either that or I look a little weird, …the truth is probably somewhere in the middle.

Trinity

This is the Trinity Episcopal Parish Church in St. Augustine, Florida. There are so many people that like to visit St. Augustine that I had to get up before dawn to capture a few shots without the tourists. In general, this little town of is a photographers paradise, an abundance of subjects in every direction.

Symmetry

This is my impression of a foot bridge along False Creek in Vancouver. A wedding party with photographers in tow were right behind me as I set up. The happy couple walked around me and stood in front of my camera on the bridge. With all the excitement they assumed I was one of the hired photographers and were posing for the shot. Realizing the error, they giggled and moved on. And of course all of that has nothing to do with my artistic renderings of Vancouver’s urban architecture.

Nokomis Lookout

This is the lifeguard lookout stand in Nokomis Florida. When I came upon this I noticed a gentleman sitting on the stairs in quiet contemplation. I'm pretty self conscious so I did my best not to make too much noise while taking this picture. The clicks on my camera can be a little annoying, so after I got the shot I quickly moved on to leave the soul in peace.

Hotel Georgia

This is the Hotel Georgia on a rainy night at the corner of West Georgia and Howe in downtown Vancouver. I think its cool to see the older architecture along with the new, it somehow makes it standout more and adds to the character of the town.

Holding Pattern

A holding pattern is exactly what Flight 500 was in when I took this. It was getting close to sunset and being stuck in a window seat I figured I’d make the best of it by pulling out my camera. I think the guy sitting next to me was a little amused, nonetheless each time my side faced west I had this view of the sun setting over the Gulf of Mexico. Of course once we landed there was no sun to see, just typical afternoon thunder showers in Tampa, Florida.

Motion

I grew up on science fiction and so I can easily daydream that a building is a spaceship. Sometimes I’ll come across architecture that’s ready for warp drive like this one along False Creek in Vancouver. Just one of many interesting buildings to be seen walking around Vancouver.

Lower Longboat

Thousands of little fish, I’m not sure what they’re called, swim close to the surface and the birds along the waterways are more than happy to scoop them up. This is the southern tip of Longboat Key near Sarasota Florida. Late afternoon is a great time to be close to the water as you’ll always see something interesting and unexpected. The day I took this I saw a six or seven foot shark about a hundred feet off shore (in an area not too close to the beaches). As I said, interesting and unexpected.

Van Wezel Patio

This is the patio of the Van Wezel Performing Arts center in Sarasota, Florida. The architecture and purple color of the building are unique in the area and stand out from a distance. I took this at sunset and was more drawn to the reflection of the sunset than the real thing itself. I’m always excited in a geeky kinda way, when I find something unique close to home, and the Van Wezel is a pleasure to look at from any angle, near or far.

Magic Dusk

Minutes after a sunset are sometimes the best to enjoy; the light of dusk on an ocean shore on a warm day is simply exquisite. I think that if I didn’t have a real job, I might just spend every evening by the beach capturing sunsets at dusk. But for now, the occasional picture is enough to keep me happy. Happy Friday everyone and I hope this brings a touch of that magic to your day.
