Something Forgotten

I found this old fishing boat overgrown with bramble bushes and thorns. If this boat could talk the stories it would tell. I also like the collection of outboard motors that are proudly displayed. The old metal rowboat being used as an awning is a nice touch.

The Salt of the Earth

As a photographer I was fortunate to recently see the documentary¬†The Salt of the Earth. It’s about the Brazilian master photographer Sebastiao Salgado. The film is directed by Wim Wenders and Juliano Ribeiro Salgado. For over 40 years Sebastiao Salgado has taken powerful black and white images about ever-changing humanity.

700 Metres Of Vertical

Today I hiked to the top of the Third Peak or North Summit of the Stawamus Chief. When you reach the glacier-polished granite summit you are rewarded with a view in all directions. A chipmunk joined me for lunch. This small mammal is difficult to photograph because it rarely sits still.

Slacklining

This individual was slacklining over the Brandywine Falls which are 70 metres or 230 feet high. I took lots of horizontal and vertical images, but I think I like this composition the best. I can only imagine what it was like to be walking across this slackline and seeing the water falling some 75 metres below. What a rush.

Capture Photography Festival

During the month of April the Capture Photography Festival is taking place in Vancouver. There are over 100 exhibitions, public installations and events. Today I saw Tokyo by Matthew Pillsbury and The Last Stand by David Ellingsen. I hope by viewing some of the exhibitions it will inspire me as a photographer.
