Random selection from my trip… I have laughed so much while I have edited those travel pics… I really shoot some weird things :D We all see the world so differently and that is like the best part in photography!
First is the shot when we arrived to Lynn Canyon Park, and I was screaming on the inside, that light!!! I just had to quickly hop off the car and take my camera. It was my heaven on earth <3
Second shot is from the Stanley Park, which is the one place I spent hours by myself, just walking, taking photos, wondering around and just enjoyed life. People were jogging, some tourists like me and just enjoying that very beautiful and little bit cold day. Little fun fact, if you wanna know what is the best way to know who is really Canadian… they wear shorts!!! Even in winter!
Third shot is from different part of the Stanley Park, from the Lost Lagoon. Don`t you just love that raccoon face??? So so cute!!! My hubby now wants a raccoon for a pet… I am just waiting that goes away… I think I will stick into dogs even those creatures are so adorable.
Fourth shot is from the Greater Vancouver Zoo, which was pretty nice place to visit in winter time, because there were maybe 4 people and us. Although some of the animals were inside, and we did not saw bear… not in the zoo or anywhere else… I was quite disapointed :D They were somewhere hibernating I guess. This guy was clearly posing for me, so I was like, I can shoot with you :)
Fifth one is from Minnekhada Regional Park. Beautiful place, and something to do with Twilight movies??? I haven`t seen any of those (even I am huge movie enthusiast), but I was told that some of those movies has shot partly in Vancouver area. And that movie business is quite big in Vancouver! Fun and interesting fact, and now I can brag to my hubby every time we are watching films ;)
And like I said… the sixth shot proves my point… I shoot some weird stuff. My friends were at that store, and I was hanging around outside and hey, I can take a photo of those shirts :D But I also bought some weird stuff too, mostly I think people buy some souvenirs… and me… I bought some little props for my shoots :D you will see some of them soon, I promise. And yes, I bought lots of chocolate… Hershey`s chocolate, maybe there would be some Canadian chocolate too…but I just love it…and you cannot buy those Kisses and Hugs from Finland! Or Twizzelers!!!
Already number seven.. I just loved that store right opposite the Hotel Europe, (Gastown) you can see it`s reflection from the store window, and I will have photos of that too to show you little later. There were really nice older man, I would think he was the store owner… he was very impressed about my cameras and we chatted a bit ;) And as you can see there were some celebrities in front of the store ;)
The last of this very random selection is from the Buntzen Lake, which were extremely beautiful location, and very nice hiking area. Our hosts has 2 dogs and those were there with us, running around and enjoying life. And those little guys were really comforting me, because I missed a lot my own dear dog, this was the longest time I have been away from him ever…
That city would be awesome to organize portrait shoots! Amazing locations, nice weather… Only in winter time, there are not so many hours of daylight (just like here in Finland), but everything else rocks! And I have been regretting quite a lot that I did not find a model like from ModelMayhem before the trip… But maybe next time…
Hey and some random pics more coming soon, and I hope your week has started well <3
