2012 is the year of the dragon and Vancouver rang in the year of power, superiority and rule with a parade in Chinatown. The event lasted a full two hours and was quite the spectacle to observe. Through elaborate costumes, pyrotechnics, music and more thousands flocked to the streets to watch or participate in the parade. Despite the wet and cold conditions the streets were packed and everyone had a smile from ear to ear.
For this, I used the 70-200mm and 300mm lens’. The thought behind this was to capture the individual people rather than the whole event.
If you didn’t make it out this year, mark it on the calendar for next! If you did, share a link to your photos, story or video below. I would love to see it!
This past weekend I made the trek over to Victoria BC, our lovely capital. In addition to being a beautiful city it is also extremely historical and the home of some of the best food and drink around. I lived in Victoria for about three years but left after departing from UVic. The city is amazing though and any excuse to head over there is a good one as far as I am concerned. The trip was not a photo mission so the camera only made a few appearances along the way but nevertheless here are a few pics from the weekend.
The lights on the Legislative buildings give a cheerful, warm feeling to one of the most influential buildings in BC.
The inside of St Mary’s Church is breathtaking, the stone pillars support the massively towering ceiling.
Have to rest a bit along the way and the beaches are a great place to do it. It is always nice to have a model to help make it look even better though…
Last but not least, this is from a shop in Chinatown… Can you say consumerism????
Until the next worthy adventure,
