tourists taking pictures

a few shots from the 'bay' this eve. the beach looked interesting as the sun went down. i had some time to shoot what i saw, but then a couple entered the frame. in my past photo life, i would have hoped they'd move on. but i just waited and watched, and got a shot of them taking a 'shot'. turns out they were students from brazil on the last day of their trip.

like my last post, their presence makes the 2nd version, 'a moment in time'.

another dog, another sunset

ok, i had to go for a walk this eve, and the seawall is one of my tracks, and i had my camera, and the sun was setting.... so i thought i should linger. it was sweet to look at / boring as hell to photograph. but then the dog sprinted by, and this shot made my evening.

to me it moves beyond the cliche' / and becomes a moment in time. any comments?

east pender & main

had to return to the east pender & main area to shoot my version of the Ovaltine Hotel. i wanted to see the location under, what i consider, the right lighting conditions. i'm satisfied with my result. the neighbourhood is visually exciting/but challenging to photograph. a few of the locals gave me their vibe. all around.. no harm done.

note: i usually post one image ONLY. i wasn't sure which one was better? / comments?? (that is if you like). thxs.

stanley park, vancouver bc

ok, i've finally been instructed as to how to post a 'link'. for those who have not seen this photo video composed by my photo pal peter, please go to his blog here.

sorry to those that have received this more than once.

trailers for sale or rent...

a friend of mine in ontario put together a little video of some of my blog images (out of guilt). check out his blog with the link below. if the link doesn't "link", simply copy to your browser . thxs peter / did you write the song?

Cool shots lately ... liking the urban neighbourhood scenes.

Meanwhile, I hope you don't mind, but I made a photo-video using a bunch of your blog shots and did a post with it about a week ago. It's in lieu of commenting on the blog, so now I don't feel so guilty.

Check it out at (and turn your volume up because you won't want to miss the accompanying song).

- Peter.
