Here and There in Metro Vancouver October 2019

CK Wright Photo Trips 4 Comments

It has been a busy month photographing at various sites around Metro Vancouver. Beyond the two mountain and forest outings, my trips have often times been centred around working on my expressionism and abstract compositions. Of course, on those outings I have also been capturing some representational photos including fall colours so it seemed easier to share those in one …

Expressionism and Abstraction September 2019

CK Wright Photo Trips

As I started off this month looking for expressionism and abstract compositions, I will share that I had a nagging concern on how many more unique compositions I could find. This style of photograph is so new to me that I do sometimes wonder “how many more unique swirls and panning shots are there?”. I guess that is an unanswerable …

I had a productive Sunday morning wandering around the neighbourhood capturing closeups of the flowers and other interesting items.

Just prior to sunrise on Saturday I headed out to capture images of all that fresh snow, starting with this high view of the neighbourhood. The photo is full of details such …

City In The Park

Located a short distance from the Edmonds Sky Train station in Burnaby is City in the Park, a collection of high rise condos along with a small formal garden.  This formal garden, private but open to the public, has boxed wood hedges, deciduous trees, a fountain, benches, and a terrace with Greek column lined twin staircases.  I had an hour today …
