Sea Wall Long Exposure Photography

For a little something “much” different… I love to play with long exposures when I’m outdoors. This time, instead of the more common silky water long exposure, I incorporated lines and angles along side ghostly figures as people walk down the sea wall, and a perfect line of ships way out in the distance. I added some dramatic edits for a vintage feel and viola! A pretty cool shot. You think?

Summertime Beachy Pleasures

Finally, summer is here! Vancouver’s Lower Mainland has been usually cold the last few weeks but lo and behold, summer is here. And as so, I was ever so inclined to take the kids to the beach. Here’s one photo that I think represents some of the reasons why we really love summer.

This Stanley Park series is almost coming to an end (though I still may come up with a couple more), and I wanted to share some of the peaceful qualities of this amazing park. So far, I’ve covered the spring time flower gardens in ‘Stanley Park Blues‘, ‘It’s A Bee, It’s A Bee‘, ‘Tulips And Textures‘, ‘Bulbs‘, and ‘Vibrant Pinks‘, as well as some wildlife in ‘Goslings‘, ‘Turtles At Lost Lagoon‘, and ‘Lost Lagoon’s Swans‘. As the summer aproaches, I will post updates as the seasonal blooms change to other varieties. Also, I plan to go much deeper into the woods to show the incredible natural history displayed throughout this magical place.

Lost Lagoon’s Swans

This was my fist time capturing swans on camera. I have to say, as they float peacefully like that, they really emanate a sense of grace and beauty.

Happy Mom’s Day!

New Discoveries

I thought this was a fitting one for today. Their intent gaze down at the water as they discover something new is a perfect example of what makes motherhood so special. Happy Mothers’ Day!

She Lives On Pink Street

And now, for a little something different. This cul de sac was striking in all its spring time glory. Cherry blossoms covered the sides of the road, perfect grass everywhere, magnolias decorated each front yard and the most perfect looking house at the very end. Still, the shot was boring on it’s own. So I embellished it just a little. I don’t usually apply this effect but in this case, I kinda like it. Besides, neon is back in these days, no?

Lonely Sailboat II

Yet another ‘Lonely Sailboat‘. Unlike my previous rendition, this one was out on this calm, cloudy day. Still just as peaceful and beautiful.

Though, not much was happening in the sky this gray day, the clouds were striking with velvety textures and soft, subtle colours.

Lonely Sailboat (work in progress phase 2)

Lonely Sailboat (work in progress 2) - Oil On Canvas

Lonely Sailboat (work in progress 2) - Oil On Canvas

This second phase is more interesting then the first as I’ve added more contrast and texture. Still some work to be done but it’s coming along happily.
