Gazebo

Recently I posted another shot of the beach from inside this Gazebo. The structure had just been built as part of the Tortuga Inn Beach Resort in Bradenton Beach, Florida. In any case I thought the design of it pretty cool, the kind of place I could see hosting a Florida wedding reception, complete with sunset and Jimmy Buffet music.

Mote Sunset

This is a shot of the sunset near the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, Florida. The Mote is a marine research facility in Sarasota Florida. They are generally making news regarding rescues of Manatee or other sea mammals as well as habitat and ecology of the seas. The evening I took this I saw a shark swim by and after I got over the shock I realized it probably wasn’t so unusual, the waters of the Gulf are teaming with all kinds of life and ecosystems. Lucky for us we have scientists and volunteers at the Mote dedicated to researching and preserving it.

Five Minute Break

I noticed this hotel worker while walking past the Sheraton in Vancouver. Despite being smack dab in the middle of a busy city he managed to find a quite place for a quick break. I don’t know why I was attracted to the scene but I think we all need to find that quite place from time to time, if even just for five minutes.
I noticed this hotel employee while I was walking past the Sheraton in Vancouver. Despite being smack dab in the middle of the city, he managed to find a spot of relative calm and quite. Not sure why, but I was impressed by the scene. Perhaps we all need to find that quite place from time to time, me included.

Vancouver Night

This is Vancouver as viewed from Portside Park. I got the idea for this shot from a small painting which hangs in the bathrooms at the Hilton hotel in Burnaby. I think it was painted from roughly the same location. The small park is wedged between the harbour and the rail yard and it took me a while to figure out how to get here on foot. Once I did, I found myself walking through a small field at night and ended up tripping in the dark. Fortunately I had the presence of mind to use my head to soften the blow to my heavy camera. A little scratched up but with camera intact, I managed to get this shot looking back on Vancouver at night.

Lost Lagoon 4

The reason I call this “4” is because I’ve taken three other shots from this same location. I try not to repeat myself, but on occasion I can’t help it. I took this night before last when walking back to my hotel through Stanley Park in Vancouver. The path was pretty much deserted, and I found out why after I setup, lots of mosquitos. In any case, this is a typical evening glow that residents of this city enjoy. No wonder everyone is so mellow here.

Urban Garden

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

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

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

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.

Coal Harbor Tower

This is a part of Vancouver known as Coal Harbour due to the coal seams that were found in the area way back when. The architecture and lines of this building silhouetted against the night sky caught my attention. Every window a different story.
