From Commercial Drive to Robson Street

Vancouver is so diverse, even within a few kilometers.  You get the grittiness of Commercial Drive area, to the mix of Hastings, to the poshness of downtown, all within 20 minutes by car.  This makes street photography very interesting in Vancouver.  Here are a few photos of my recent shoots.

Now, I just need to start working on my term project that I really should have started 4 or 5 weeks ago.

Commercial Drive

The street photography class met today on Commercial Drive as our shooting location.  The assignment was called “The Decisive Moment”.  We were supposed to find an interesting background, frame the shot, and wait for something interesting to happen.

Well, that didn’t work too well for me, because I was impatient.  I would frame a background, and wait, and wait, and wait, and then lose my patience.  I’d find the next background, frame the shot, and lose my patience.  So after a couple of hours of this repeated cycle of failure in the pouring rain and wind, I just walked around and took whatever pictures I wanted.

I am so going to fail this assignment.
