Chef Boyardee

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

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 of those in-between minutes before nightfall, someone might remark that I’m too serious. In any case, I suspect there is a similar photo in Germany, taken from about the same spot with a lightly more serious look and feel.

Tortouga Gazebo

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

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.

Stepping Stones

This fountain can be found along the Coal Harbor section of Vancouver. It’s unique in that it has stepping stones such that you can walk right through the fountain, almost like a stream in an urban setting. I found it quite peaceful, however the night I was there a young man on his stunt bike was hopping from stone to stone on one wheel. Probably not what the architects had in mind, but I was impressed nonetheless.

Coquina Pier

This was taken atop what’s left of the Coquina Beach pier on Anna Marie Island, Florida. While the pier is slowly giving way to the elements, local fishermen and birds still use it daily. I love the blue green waters of the Gulf of Mexico, they’re always clear and inviting which explains why we have so many visitors to this area year round.

Van Wezel Stairs

These stairs are on the grounds of the Van Wezel Performing Arts center in Sarasota Florida. Actually, I couldn’t think of anything to write about these, I’m coming up blank. How’s this, …Often patrons walk these stairs dressed to the nines in anticipation of a great performance. Hmmm, well maybe I should just let it go. You can make up your own story, it’s probably much better than mine.

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.
