I’m doing a wordless Wednesday post today because honestly, I have no words right now. Been in a funk for a few weeks. But, getting out for fish and chips and watching the sunset by the sea last night helped a little bit. Click through the images if you want a larger look. Hope you all had a good Wednesday!
I know… it’s supposed to be Wordless Wednesday… with all the “w” letters… it’s clever, right? But whatever… I have other things planned for Wednesday. Or maybe Thursday. We’ll see how the week goes. At any rate… I’m pretty much never wordless so it’s not even a wordless Monday. What it is, is “A Bunch of Pictures Monday”. Because, I have a bunch of pictures.
There is something really amazing about watching people follow their passions – especially when they’re first starting out. You can watch the passion seeping out of them – there’s an intensity to them – sometimes it’s quiet, other times it’s boisterous. Their eyes flicker when you ask them about what they’re doing – sometimes their entire face changes. It’s like a light switch that flicks
Iona beach has been one of my favourite beaches for the last little while – it’s the perfect spot in the lower mainland to catch the sunset – especially at low tide. So when Ethan asked me if I wanted to go photograph the sunset on Saturday night, this is the spot I said we should hit. It was perfect except… there was no sun.
I’m not a big one for food media events. I find them loud and crowded, everyone angling for a handful of samples from the latest menu or shoving a camera in your way so they can get a badly lit blurry photo. I’m shy and not very pushy and I get frustrated with crowds or people who are just being rude by not being considerate
2012 has left the building. At first, I wasn’t very sad about that thought. It wasn’t a horrible year by any stretch. But it wasn’t a stand out either. It felt very… bleah. I don’t usually do recap posts (and this isn’t one either!) but I toyed with the idea of picking 12 of my best/favourite photos for the year and posting them here. I
This past weekend I had the opportunity to checkout the first day of the 3rd Annual Vancouver Christmas Market. The market, which is modeled after an authentic German Christmas market, is open from November 24th till December 24th at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza in the downtown core. It’s festive, bright and full of delicious sites, smells and tastes! Full of traditional wooden booths offering
One of my favourite places to go in Vancouver is Granville Island. It rides a fine line between being a tourist trap and being a well loved local institution. If you’re a local you have to pick your times right to avoid the throngs of tourists (my favourite time to go is actually in the winter on a weekday!) The public market is home to
Last weekend, I needed to escape. I really didn’t care where or how or with who, if anyone. I don’t remember the last time I had a full day off from work. I was tired, pretty cranky and feeling like I was verging on crossing that line between simply overworked and burning out. So you can imagine, I was pretty pleased when Ethan from Tastes
After our dinner at Kin Resto Bar the other night, my friend, Rosalie, and I decided to stop in at a Vancouver Christmas tradition: Gingerbread Lane at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Featuring some incredibly detailed and inventive creations from Vancouver pastry chefs, culinary students at both the post secondary and high school level, and talented amateurs it’s a fun way to get in the Christmas
