A band from my hometown is going to be published on the cover of a newspaper in Edmonton and they`ve chosen one of my shots to grace the cover.
Although I will always travel, Vancouver is now and always will be my hometown. With the limited time I have left here before I spread my wings and leave the proverbial nest to Europe, the eastern side of Canada and beyond, I’ve been making sure to take time for capturing this city.
Finally sorting out the technical side of my software woes, I am able to sort through some shots I took with my newest camera. The Nikon D600 is the first full frame I have been able to afford and the remarkable outcome has converted me.
Anyways, I’ll throw another couple of photos your way soon enough! Thanks for checking out this photo-blog!!
A bit of fish-eye, my hometown an a gorgeous sky makes Krystal a happy girl. The flare adds to the effect of the lens in a weird and unexpected way that I like.
This was taken in November of 2011 and I’m itching to show some newer photos, but unfortunately, I’m building an archive of photos that I can’t use. Nice one, Nikon. Release a fantastic camera that I’ve fallen in love with, but make sure that no Adobe product is compatible with it (yet… although it’s been a few months now :/). No Lightroom, no Photoshop… My only choice is to switch to Capture NX2, but being that it’s an unfamiliar program, it’s time-consuming for a simple edit.
Anyways, enough about my camera woes! I’m sure it will be worth it once the technology catches up. Enjoy this shot of Vancouver in the mid-afternoon in the fall. It is taken from the giant “Q” that looms above Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver across the water from downtown. The amount of time I spent there in my youth will always be reflected in my photos, but this shot seems to capture it in a way I have yet to match.
This photograph was taken in December, 2011. During this time, I was dating a guy who lives on Vancouver Island, so I would often take the ferry between Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver and Nanaimo. The beautiful masses of land along the trip always fascinated me, so I thought I’d take a self-portrait with them. I’m super bundled, as the whipping winds on the open water can be treacherous in December.
I’m playing a bit of catch-up today, doing a bunch of posts instead of skipping more days. I seriously need to start post-dating! Just in case, I don’t get that set up before I leave, I am going to be in Las Vegas from May 21-25 and immediate when I return, I’m heading to Sasquatch Music Festival in central Washington from May 25-29 so if you don’t hear from me in a while, it’s only because I will return with fabulous new pictures! Just in case that happens, since it will encompass the last 7 days of the month, feel free to let me know whenever you’s like which of the following you would like to have as the theme for June:
– Spot The Clock
– Friends Made Along My Travels!
– Live Music Abroad
