a good day doing mostly the things we enjoy like watching midget hockey and wishlist shopping before a pig out and a quick stop to admire the christmas tree at mcarthurglen. i didn’t cross off anything on my shopping list but he found good deals on what he was looking for. just taking advantage of our time off during the holidays and soaking in the festive season while we can

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 518 – eve adventure

time has flown by so quickly, today is the last day of the year. instead of going to a large scaled event to party like originally planned, decided to keep it low and have a quiet celebration to the new year. had a good time going up mount seymour and strolling around downtown for the countdown. it was a mix of good and bad this year with many eventful times, but through all i have grown to be stronger and ready to take the next step and make things happen in 2015

day 454 – fright night

image

second ever fright night and it wasn’t too shabby. even though my shoes and socks were soaked from random moments of down pour, it was still a memorable night. had some actors chase after me as i was running towards the roller coaster. a few haunted house and handful of coasters, hellavators and other rides capped off a wet rainy tuesday. the lit ferris wheel was very calming in between houses, especially at its peak i could see the world from up top

day 73 – surfing on the strip

image

walking along the heart of the main strip just spending time with the family and couldn’t help but noticing gordon ramsay steakhouse is situated right here. tons of nice nightscapes and architecture in the three blocks but paris got my vote for the classiest resort besides aria being the newest of them hotels

day 1 – canada fireworks

image

one of the most impressive celebration of lights showing i have attended. from the crowd reaction, canada made vancouverites proud and displayed some beautiful fireworks. it was definitely worth fighting for a spot on english bay plus the long crowded speed walk and commute back home
