Library

I happened to walk by this building the other day but it took a while before realizing it was the Vancouver library. Lately I read books from a tablet and haven’t been inside a library for ages. In any case, I liked the architecture of the library which seems vaguely Roman. Well, maybe a little more than vaguely.
I happened to walk by this building the other day but it took a while before realizing it was the Vancouver library. Last night I walked by another smaller library in another section of town and I found myself wondering how libraries are doing these days. Lately I read books from a tablet. In any case, I liked the shape of this library which vaguely reminded me of Roman architecture.

Burrard Afternoon

This is the Burrard Bridge in Vancouver. I shot this in the late afternoon when people were out walking and enjoying the scenery. This section of town is known as West End and it runs along False Creek into English Bay. If you look closely you’ll see three ladies sitting on a log enjoying a picnic and the scenery of English Bay.

Urban Sunrise

When I travel from east coast to west I wake up early. I mean early early. So on this day I setup my camera and waited for the sun to rise and this was the scene outside my hotel window. I suspect that most of the people in these buildings were still in la la land, as would I be if I were on my own coast.

Siesta Key

Siesta Key is a little village not far from where I live. Funny thing is I find the only time I go there is when guest come to town. In an effort to turn that around I headed there to shoot the sunset last week and I enjoyed it so much I’m planning on going back, hopefully before our next guests arrive.Siesta Key is a little village not far from where I live. Funny thing is I find the only time I go there is when guest come to town. Seems I take for granted what's in my backyard and only seem to enjoy it when I have to. Well, in an effort to turn that around I headed there to shoot the sunset last week. I enjoyed it so much I'm planning on going back, hopefully before our next guests arrive.

Wages of Sin

Lately I’ve started to shoot a little urban street photography which you’ll see more of in the coming weeks. I suppose it’s best to let the scenes speak for themselves and leave it up to your own interpretation. This is on the popular and eclectic Robson street in downtown Vancouver.

Yaletown Condo

I like Thomas Hawk’s photography which has a lot of buildings at odd angles. This not so much, but I’m intrigued by the regular pattern of lines in the architecture. This photo is from the Yaletown section of Vancouver and I know that because the name of the subway stop nearby is Yaletown Roundhouse. A place where the rail roundhouse operated in ages past and now a trendy section of town. But then, when it comes to Vancouver, pretty much every section of town is trendy. It’s a trendy city.

Casino Train

This is on the subway from Richmond, BC to Vancouver. The next stop is at the River Rock Casino and on this Friday night the train was packed with folks dressed to the nines and ready to party.

Cambie Night

This is looking down towards the Cambie Bridge across Vancouver at night. What I like most is the size of the mountains in the back. Coming from a flat place like Florida I can never get enough of the huge mountains surrounding Vancouver. In any case, this epitomizes this city; always busy, full of life, yet surrounded by the big beautiful Canadian Rockies.

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.
