This has been a fantastic year for photography, and in the last few months I feel I’ve finally hit my groove. Maybe it’s the long seawall walks, and the lovely scenery I got exposed to? Or maybe it’s the cardio?
My first morning photo of Burrard Bridge, I think? Already trying out new things just days into the new year. Nice job, me.
Simple and already done, but when the shot’s right there you have to take it!
This might have been my first walk along the south seawall from Cambie Bridge to Granville Island, scoping out good vantage points for my eventual walking commutes. I found one.
My first Icelandic waterfall, and it’s a lovely one!
My second Icelandic waterfall, a bit harder to get to, but well worth the effort.
Take a moment to appreciate the humble little things around you.
Gorgeous and noisy.
A silly little photo I took on a whim, but I really like it!
Just a one-time thing so far but hey, I’m not just about photography!
All about the golden hour with bonus rainbow flags!
Overcame my twitchiness about stinging insects, with a phone that wasn’t particularly made for close-up shots.
LOOK AT THE FUZZ. Though apparently you don’t want to touch it. That fuzz is called “setae”, and they can break off in your skin if you touch them, cause allergic reactions or even contain stinging chemicals. BUT JUST LOOK AT IT
Not my best selfie but a great milestone for me, being my first time presenting at a WordCamp.
I love this photo’s geometry: the stark angles of towers and shadows, the mosaic of lit and dark windows — and the soft soft clouds in the background.
It feels like an impressionist painting, doesn’t it? The delicate textures of clouds and light rippling on the water, like brushstrokes. Love it
It feels like another painting, with the moody clouds pierced by little bright spots of colour.
There’s tons of life around False Creek, and here we see a flock of geese commuting to their hangout in Charleson Park.
A bit of darkness lets you see more light.
Yet another painting-like photo. This one feels perfect: balanced, harmonious, relaxing. I could drink it in all day.
I can’t get enough of this view.
Just goes to show, sometimes all you need is to be in the right place at the right time. And also to look behind you sometimes.
I was on my way back from Taichi class, driving along Broadway, when I saw the sky and made an impulse decision. I found my way to Trout Lake and found (a) a good vantage point, and (b) that the lake was frozen. Unexpected, but it didn’t hurt the view!
I love the contrast of grey and gold here, and how ground level is still in shadow.
A little call-back to when I took photos of Sunset Beach every morning… except now it’s dusk, and there’s a new thing in town.
I couldn’t make both these landmarks fit in one 16:9 shot, though I may try again from a different vantage point.
Not my first macro shot, and it’s a bit blurrier than I’d have liked, but look at the cute little twinned berries! Look at the surface reflection! Look at the surrounding berries reflected in the droplets!
This view never gets old
