1252 Burrard

I could make something up about this but that just doesn’t seem right. The fact is I was walking back to my hotel and noticed this and, well, I’m influenced by Thomas Hawk and I think to myself, that’s a Thomas Hawk shot! So this is a Rick Schwartz pretending to be Thomas Hawk shot. And if you thought this is a lame bit of writing, or even a bit weird, that makes two of us. Just look at the photo and pretend you never read this.

Morning Walk

This is another shot of Emerson Point in Palmetto Florida. I love this place in the morning, it’s so quite and I’m likely to see Osprey, Eagles, Great Herons, any number of fish and a beautiful sunrise. The Parks department built these wooden walkways across the Mangroves to view the ecosystems at work up close. And when you’re done you can pickup a fresh Duncan Donuts coffee on your way home. Another morning in paradise, eh?

Brigadoon

I have no idea where this is, other than I took it from a moving train somewhere between Vancouver and Jasper in Canada. Something about the fog and the early morning light almost reminds me of the 1954 musical Brigadoon. Maybe this place doesn’t even exist, but for a minute of time I was able to capture it from a moving train. Ah, such are my thoughts when I’ve nothing better to do. In any case, maybe in my next life I’ll live somewhere like this.

Tarpon Pointe Sunrise

I live in a community across the river from the Tarpon Pointe Grill & Tiki Bar. Often I’ll walk the dogs at night and stop at the point right along the river to listen to the sounds of live music coming from here. Boy, they have some good music and parties. However, when I took this, it was sunrise and everything was still and calm, not a soul in sight. Funny what difference a few hours makes.

Sarasota Sunrise

As the sun rises in the east in Sarasota Florida it rises over the city. Most people think of Florida as a place to retire with warm weather year round. That’s true, but Sarasota has a younger crowd as well due to the colleges in the area, and so every morning before dawn the streets and bridges are full of people out for a jog or walk, or in my case, taking pictures of the sunrise. The waters are always clear, mostly warm, and you can’t go too far without running into a Starbucks. What’s not to like?

Dawn

This is dawn in Sarasota Florida. I’ve been here dozens of times but never noticed this tree, however this time something about it in the twilight set it apart. Twilight and dusk are my two favorite periods of the day for taking pictures. The mood of something, like this tree, is complete and real, yet disappears just a few minutes later. The other thing that makes this special is that I was able to drag myself out of bed to take this photo. That’s no little accomplishment.

Trellis

This is the rose garden trellis in Vancouver’s Stanley Park. When I took this it was too early for all the roses to be in full bloom, nonetheless I thought the setting idyllic, especially when you consider that the bustling city is just a few short steps away. If you come here in the evening around dusk you can have the whole place to yourself. I can’t think of a better way to unwind from a busy day than walking through a rose garden in Stanley Park.

Robinson Dusk

Boy, I am such a procrastinator, like another shot I did of Robinson Preserve I got here just as the sun was setting below the tree line. If I was just ten minutes earlier, …but then again, maybe everything happens at the perfect time. So maybe this is the picture that was meant to be. I’ll never know but, in the end, this is what came out. Robinson preserve is a 487-acre preserve in Bradenton Florida and is the home of many species of wildlife, in short, a beautiful place for a walk.

Nature Salad

I was standing on a lookout tower in Emerson Point Florida just after sunrise when I took this. In a way it reminds me of a big salad with the sun, clouds for rain and the green vegetation below. This is so typical of Florida, you can have clear skies in one direction, big clouds with rain in the other. And when it does rain, you can usually see blue sky. Even as I write this post, there are thunderstorms outside, but I know that in about twenty minutes it will pass and we’ll have clear sky and a nice sunset. So this picture just sums it all up, and puts food on the table as well.

Moraine Creek

Moraine Lake, just above this creek, is one of the most scenic lakes in the Canadian Rockies. While everyone was taking pictures of the lake I snapped a few of the creek. The rock pile to the left is from a massive rock slide that created the lake hundreds of years ago.
