June 23rd 2012 | Stanley Park, Vancouver, BC | Wedding
more photos & details to come….
Earlier this month I had the pleasure of hanging out with Colton & his parents for a “Family Day Out Experience” in Gastown. Considering we live in Vancouver – the weather is as predictable as NOTHING ELSE in the Entire World. Seriously – weather in BC is sunny, hot, raining, cold, humid, snowing, sleeting, windy, freezing – and thats just on one day!
So when our morning finally arrived – I was thrilled to see the icy wind part the clouds and shatter our dreary day with a perfect sunrise! I hit downtown before everyone arrived to get a good parking spot, scope out the location (previously scouted but you never know when something changes), and just relax a little.
Here are some incredible shadows I caught from the bridge going from Main Street over to the park and a Vancouver Skyline with the nosiy railyard.
I love this sculpture – he was still engulfed by the icy-shadows when I arrived but a bit of fill-flash brought out the details! I like how he is about to eat Vancouver.
Some days I drive, some days I skytrain to Vancouver – just depending on the assignment I have. Waiting at the Skytrain for a ride home – I caught some gorgeous reflections in the late night rain.
Here I am waiting for the skytrain to pass. Its the Gateway skytrain station and I know this area receives alot of bad press for the less than stellar activities that occur here (the heart of Whalley), but, just like wandering around Hastings & Main, I never felt out of place, threatened (ie all my camera equipement) or uncomfortable. One day I will tell you a Tale of Melacca!
I know! I KNOW! Its almost March 31st. I will wait until next week to Panic. And im not even sure if Ive got the right towel! How did February get here so fast!
Dear February – I had so many plans for you that included – basically – nothing but the quiet, contemplative, structured review of my income, but overwhelmingly, my expenses from last year. A slow, slip-by-slip of paper receipts, scribbled & scrawled on, invoices with giant, red PAID stamps, and my trusty excel spreadsheets. But alas…..
Its not even Valentines day (as if that matters to my calendar-deficient hubby), and I still havent done anything tax related! I know the tax man doesnt care about headshots, birthday-suited babies, family adventures, or corporate functions – but ive been so busy with all these fun projects these last – uh – I want to say couple of weeks – few days – and more is on its way…that Ive neglected my tax-time duties.
Yes I know – its all good – I love the photography, I love the editing, I love getting my customers out of their comfort zone & showing them the other side to their natural beauty…
But still – it wont count for points when March 31st comes around and the HST form is late. Oh well – I guess there are plenty of hours between bedtime & the morning alarm. In the meantime, here are a few snaps from the last few sessions!
But if you see the tax man coming my way – please invite him over for tea so I have a few extra seconds to prepare my books! I wont panic yet, because ive got some really exciting projects for the rest of this week.
I wont panic yet.
Not one little bit.
Ok – maybe a little.
