Dreaming of Sunshine
Some days I think I must be crazy to be a photographer who prefers to shoot with available light in a city such as Vancouver…what available light, where did the sun go….oh for the warm blush of spring and summer…the rosy glow of lingering evenings and sunkissed skin.
Does sunshine count when it is hidden under a blanket of fog? Do clear skies count when they arrive with the stars and depart with the dawn…
Oh but we do live in a beautiful city. The other day I was blessed with the sight of two majestic bald eagles perched together at the top of a towering totem pole just a few blocks from my home in Kitsilano. The moon was rising behind them in the late day sky, and yes, I must say it was a bright clear day. I could see their feathers ruffling in the wind, their eyes scanning the city horizon made all the more dramatic by a backdrop of brilliantly snowcapped mountains.
Nature and it’s seasons - even seasons such as these that have devastated our Stanley Park and tested our patience with wind storms and countless days of rain – still continues to fill me with awe and inspire me to no end. I just can’t wait for the longer days to come so we can all be out enjoying its’ glory.
On that note, I will be kept very busy with some exciting new projects and “weather permitting” I may be shooting outside instead of minding the store, so please call ahead just in case we need to have irregular hours!
