Chasing the Light at Lower Lonsdale

Chris Wright Photo Trips 6 Comments

I have photographed the lower Lonsdale area in the City of North Vancouver on several occasions, and on each visit I see something new. It is rich in photographic possibilities with new and old buildings, interesting architecture, and the waterfront public space called The Shipyards. So I was excited to show fellow photographer Dennis Ducklow around the area.

After a nice lunch at the Tap and Barrel and then shuffling cars in the 2 hour parking limit, Dennis and I walked past the 1926 BC Telephone heritage building on West 1st Street. We spent some time capturing it from different angles and with different techniques.

At the end of the photo shoot, we both agreed that it was a productive outing in an area rich in creative possibilities.
