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.

Nakomis Sunset

I can never get tired of Florida Gulf Coast sunsets. And apparently I’m not the only one, dozens of people showed up on this evening just to watch the sun go down. I don’t know why but it amazes me that people show up to watch the earth rotate to the point that our star is no longer visible. Maybe there’s something larger going on, or maybe I’m just over-thinking it. Probably a little of both.

Manatee Bridge

In Bradenton Florida you cross this bridge to get to Anna Marie Island and Holmes Beach. When the tide is moving the bridge is full of fishermen and it’s my understanding that the fish move with the tide, however don’t take my word for it as fishing is not one of my stronger suits. That’s a polite way of saying I suck at fishing. Even so I like to fish on occasion even if I’m only feeding the fish all my bait.

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.
