Rusty New West Walk

I guess that works on a couple of levels. One, I haven't been going for many walks around New West ... or anywhere, in the last few weeks.

Two ...

I came across this

Which made me think about the following series




There are more photos from tonight, but they'll have to wait :)

Starting to feel better

Summer colds, they really take a bit out of the nice weather.

Finally, I'm feeling more like doing 'things' so I got out last night and went for a walk.

I've been acquiring more of a taste for 'worn out' images

These two were actually side by side.

I'm also trying to shoot a few more abstracts, but as a series when possible.




Down by City Hall I took a walk through the little 'Japanese garden' and it's actually quite calming there

Old Fountain

Duck pond



The light was quite tricky to shoot in and I'm going to try and stop by at different times to see if it improves. Quick tricky under the tall trees.


I like these in sepia

Also, I'm trying to work more on interesting flash fill. Not the best subject (or execution ;) ) but I'm working on it.

Have a great weekend.

Not very inspired

Went for a bit of a walk, but nothing really came together.

This is the only shot I like:

Hope you had a good night.

Ride to the Athlete's Village

After riding the KLR Friday, and mountain biking yesterday, I took the road bike out today. It was supposed to be just a quick little ride to move the legs, but I ended up all the way in Vancouver again. And this time I checked out a bit more of the Athlete's Village.

There are some cool structures there

which can lead to some interesting perspectives

"Supposed to be artsy" grass shot

BC Place, caught with it's top down

The ride back was tough, 20 km into the wind. :)

Hope you had a good weekend.

Wet Canada Day

But Michelle and I still went to check out the festivities in New Westminster's Queens Park.

These kids sang a capella and they were really good

Umbrellas were a good thing to have

Michelle stopped to smell the flowers :)

I took more flower pictures, not sure why.

After a while we walked back to New West. I liked the look of this door.

Hope you had a good Canada Day :)
