blast from the past

i don't really want to post family shots on this blog, but this one is kind of fun. the shot is of me, my sister, and twin brother, taken on our 2nd birthday. you can see a young gal in the background trying to crash the party. guess we were pretty popular with the ladies back in the day. (wonder what happened)?

vancouver canada

so, i had quite the journey today. spent 5hrs plus walking the town, camera at the ready. returned to home base, and reviewed 200 plus frames. and what do i do? post a shot of a door and a bus??

ok, this was what i was thinking. i flat out like the light/colors of the door shot, so that's that.. the bus... well, photographs of transit rides, are time capsules. that is to say, the streets, the buildings, will evolve slowly over time, but vehicles, and the advertising on them, suggest a moment in time. (just like the sunglasses worn in a 2 year old photo... dates you in an instant).

that's my justification for these 2 shots......... oh, and the exercise didn't hurt i suppose....
