day 641 – night photography

DSC_0019

tonight was a rather chilly night, but went out with a friend in search of the picture worthy places around town to capture some of the very best of vancity. this is my first time taking out my expensive toy and a tripod to take night shots. it is also my first attempts to play around with dslr and long exposures functions. here’s a pretty dandy shot which i thought deserved tonight’s notable mention. some of the pictures turned out quite well. i think i’ll have to invent more time in photography to get better understanding of my camera’s capabilities

day 547 – mild winter weather

image

gorgeous weather in late january with very mild temperatures this winter season which could be both good and bad. sunshine calls for nice stroll out although it can get a little too breezy along the seawall. but also because weather has been mild, it hasn’t allowed me to hit the slopes for skiing yet. i will take it as long as it’s not wet and rainy like what vancouver is notorious for

day 531 – winter sun

image

surprisingly sunny on a january afternoon but it is still very cold out there. the weather has been the same past few days, sunny by day and foggy by night. i wish i could take a jet plane to fly above the clouds to take pictures of the city through the fog. i heard you can get very mysterious snapshots with the fog. but since that’s not possible, i will take an afternoon stroll under the clear blue sky and white clouds

day 464 – out and about

when it’s been pouring with temperature drops drastically, every sign signals autumn has arrived. i hate to see summer leave vancouver because the weather is about to get miserable around here. it’s cold outside but as long as it’s not raining i can be outside wandering around. never realized there were railway tracks from downtown looking towards gastown, interesting gems i find through my walking adventures

day 348 – hot and sunny

gorgeous vancouver weather and would be happier if i had more time to enjoy it outside. down at the water front getting myself the required vitamin d from sunlight and summer heat. hope it’s here to stay for a while cause i haven’t started my season and definitely not ready to see it end

day 295 – strolling

image

spring is when the vancouver weather starts getting nice out. strolling outside one of the prime areas of downtown during mid afternoon to get some much needed fresh air and personal space alone. being able to walk along this path will be one of the biggest upside come summer time

day 176 – stroll along the seawall

image

out in yaletown along the seawall after dinner to look at the city scape at night. the dineout menu for the refinery sounded decent but actual food served wasn’t all that impressive and didn’t live up to our expectations. i guess i had the company that made up for the lack of sparkle
