day 1096 – walk of life

image

everybody’s walk of life is a little different, this is my night time walk. i’ll find my way that leads to the path that my heart desires. it’s been a day of a weird long weekend full of unexpected circumstances and sudden turn of events. one that gave me a lot of realizations and held a lot of hard truths. although it was a laid back day, i am still very tired and could use the extra rest. i’ll give my body a break since i am too sore to benefit from exercising

day 1057 – walking in rain

image

a walk in the drizzling rain got me a little wet, but left me feeling refreshed. when i am alone, i think and think until i overthink everything. i’ll always find something to think about even when there’s nothing to think about. sometimes life let’s you wander off to nowhere in particular and leave you hanging just so you can learn a little more about yourself and perhaps find yourself. i got my rest, i got my time off; it’s time to look for steps to do something that will lead me to what i my soul is searching for

day 1002 – revisiting jericho

image

by the water hoping i won’t be feeding the flies and mosquitoes. jericho brings back a lot of memories from the studio term that i spent doing a beach redevelopment project. but tonight, my job was to forget about all that and be one with the calmness. times when we can stand ashore to look out across and get a good view of downtown vancouver. i’ll definitely want to be back here again when summer really hits

day 989 – date night

image

a nice sumptuous dinner and night out in the neighbourhood for reaching our first little milestone together. having connections really does help; hooked ourselves up with some good fusion tapas at torafuku. the restaurant is not located in a prominent area, the decor does not wow anyone with its interior, but eaters are drawn to focus on the flavour and essence of the food. it’s been one heck of a month and i only look forward to all the times we’ll share and all the memories we’ll create

day 984 – water walks

image

walking along the water just after sunset to wind down a great weekend full of activities. looking out into the water into the distant buildings and city lights gives us time to appreciate each other and recognize all that we have in our lives. never underestimate how a little time and the little things could add up to make a huge difference. cherish all the moments because time passes us by so much quicker than we expect it. so don’t let the chances slip away; express your thoughts, feelings with the deepest sincerity

day 695 – old quebec

image

tough day of competition with some slippage and certainly disappointment. hit me harder than anyone can imagine but it’s a wake up call and learning experience. i have some thinking, regrouping and re-prioritizing to do when i get back, but i will come back strong. in the meantime, going into old quebec late at night with the purpose of sightseeing. the area is pretty neat with some resemblance of vancity gastown and yaletown. turns out we stopped by mcdonalds just to try the mclobster and some mcflurries. would be nice to come back during the day time if time permits

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
