Date night fun

Last night, Cliff and I had date night arranged.  He wasn’t feeling that great, and I was pretty tired.  But it was a very precious opportunity for us to be out without the kids, so we went out, hauling my camera and lighting equipment to Gastown with us.

I had an assignment I needed to do for a class, but I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired.  We tried a few different things, but all I felt was “meh”.  Standing on the sidewalk in Gastown, we started goofing around with the lights, and that was a lot of fun.  These are what we ended up with.

Urban archaeologist

For my Street Photography class, we had to do a series on man-made things–artifacts, buildings, garbage, etc–things that people make and leave behind.  So the focus is less on the people, but more on the indication of presence of people.

I walked from the Waterfront skytrain station all the way to Oppenheimer Park, and here are some of the pictures I took that day.
