Stanley Park Part 2 – The silhouette edition

Posted in Photography by sanchovi on 10/03/2010

The sun was getting low as I reached the top of Stanley Park. A mysterious figure was following me. Later I found out it was just another tourist. I was hoping it was a vampire or a werewolf or something interesting like a vampire raccoon bat.

Big bridges always impress me. This was no exception. Another favourite thing of mine is to see mountains higher than clouds so to get the two together in the one photo was pretty cool.

Before this bridge was built raccoons would of had to swim across to North Van to collect bottles. It’s strange to think of a time before bridges. I like to refer to this period of time as BB (Before Bridges).

Another beautiful thing about Stanley Park is the variety of scenery it holds.

I’m lead to believe that this is where they shot all of Pirates of the Caribbean. They shoot a lot of movies in Canada.

Biking around the park is quite popular. I wish I had a bike. I think a trip to E Hastings is in order.

After 3 hours of walking and chasing squirrels, the sun finally set and the light turned to shit so I met up with some friends to smash burritos at Budgies.

You can’t spell blog without ‘log’

This log captivated me so much that I snapped off about 20 shots of it. Here are my favourites.

And we all remember this clip.

Stanley Park (part 1)

Posted in Photography by sanchovi on 05/03/2010

Stanley Park was created in 1994 by the Stanley Corporation. I was lucky enough to win a golden ticket and explore the magical world of squirrels and raccoons that resides next to the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver.

It felt like I was in a Disney cartoon. All of the wildlife would approach you without a care. I was actually scared that a squirrel might crawl up my pants leg like they do on TV.

Did you know that seagulls ┬ádon’t sleep? Anyhow, here’s a photo of some geese.

This shot was taken just as a dream sequence was about to commence.

Moss only grows on the north side of trees so I was obviously standing north looking south. Moss also can’t gather on a rolling stone or rock. Do you remember the Moss Man action figure from the He-Man series? He use to creep me out when I was young. Who’s idea was it to make an action figure covered in felt or whatever it was?

Here are two shots of the same area. The sun was on it’s way down which made for some great lighting. This was the forrest where they filmed Die Hard 2.
