I hope in these trying times that we are in with the COVID-19 pandemic, that we are all safe and healthy. I do believe that art is an important component of our mental well being, and hopefully these compositions will provide a bit of joy in your life. Mullion Framed Rectangles of Sky.

Intersected Drops. At the Vancouver Convention Centre is the iconic sculpture The Drop by Inges Idee. In this composition, I have used three multiple exposures where the third intersects each of the two vertical exposures. Red Bench on Lower Burrard Street. I like the interplay between the bright red bench, the dark tile, and the strong straight silver elements in …

January’s Fortnight of Urban Views

I spent the first two weeks of this year exploring urban areas of Metro Vancouver. The weather at this time of year can be a mixed bag so urban outings allow me to take advantage of the optimum weather windows.JOn one of the trips along River Road, I headed down a side road and spotted these Seaspan rail ferries on …

The gardens are paved in square and rectangular blocks and with my wide angle lens, it forms an …

Good Friday In The Hood

With the clearing weather conditions near noon as forecasted on Good Friday, it was time to explore the area where I live in south Burnaby. At this time of year, the area is so green and lush.

Here and There in South Burnaby and Port Royal

Chris Wright Photo Trips

Here and there indeed as I rambled through various sites in south Burnaby and Port Royal last weekend. In search of fall colours, I took a walk through Burnaby’s Central Park on Saturday. While the vine maple there was mostly green, there were several patches that had turned orange to red. On Sunday, I walked through Byrne Creek Ravine Park …
