So, today has been a bit rainy, but there was a small break and the rain stopped. It stopped just long enough for me to go for a walk along the promenade and out onto the sand at low-tide. Here are a few photos from my walk:
One thing that is neat about a telephoto lens is how it can “compress” objects in an image to make them look closer together. Here, the box cars look fairly narrow and squished together. I can’t remember the actual distance from end-to-end of a box car, but they must be roughly 50 feet or so in length.
As the train passed, I played around with taking panning shots. You try and move the camera at the same speed from one direction following the subject to the end. If it is done correctly, the main object should be in focus and the environment around it should be blurred by the motion.
I always thought horsetails looked nice, especially their green colours. Might make this one into a background/desktop image for the laptop. Though that leave in the upper-left side looks a bit out-of-place.
That’s it with the photos I thought I would post from my little (3 hour or so) walk today. The rain started coming down again as I turned around to walk home. Great timing though, not that rain has ever bothered me nor my camera equipment.
What else is happening?
Well, as many of you know, I finished my 2-year program at BCIT and this upcoming Monday I will be working with my previous co-op employer for the next 3 months. I am looking forward to getting back to work and earning some much needed income. I do enjoy the commute actually, White Rock to Richmond to downtown Vancouver. I really did enjoy working downtown, and the next 3 months will also be fun. Who knows, when we get back from Southeast Asia, perhaps I can find another career downtown too!
