Vancouver False Creek Fog

It was a foggy afternoon and I decided to venture down to Granville Island to see if I could get any interesting shots.  I couldn’t get inspired, so I just watched a few street performers to pass the time.  I thought the evening light would make a difference but again, things just didn’t come together as expected.  I took a few shots but didn’t get anything great.  After sunset, I walked around the seawall to Science World and took a few shots in the area.  It was one of those nights where I went out to get a specific shot and just couldn’t get it.  Some people things you can just go out and get a good shot, but in...

Dragon Boat Spring Sprint in Vancouver

The races are held in False Creek with downtown Vancouver as the backdrop.  Hard to find a nicer venue than this. The staging area is right beside Science World. Some shots of the action.    ...
