Creativity In The Garden

CK Wright Photo Trips 4 Comments

I wanted to share some additional photos from a recent trip to the Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver. A few photos from that visit were included in the September Expressionism and Abstract article, but there were many more interesting compositions! You may recall the dreamscape image I posted of the Bloedell Conservatory roof. This first photo is a representational composition …

Steveston

CK Wright Photo Trips 8 Comments

One of the areas I like to visit on occasion is Steveston. There are always interesting items to photograph including the fishing boats, the preserved Gulf of Georgia Cannery, and even some interesting buildings. It seems that in Metro Vancouver most of the old gas stations are long gone. I had walked past this station before but on this visit …

Closeups in the Hood

CK Wright Photo Trips

I had a productive Sunday morning wandering around the neighbourhood capturing closeups of the flowers and other interesting items. I started off in the City in the Park gardens and captured the roses with moisture still on them from the overnight watering. The gardens are paved in square and rectangular blocks and with my wide angle lens, it forms an …

Surrey Central

CK Wright Photo Trips

An area I have wanted to photograph for some time is the area around the Surrey Central Skytrain station. There are some interesting architectural buildings including the City Centre Library, the SFU Sustainable Energy and Environmental Engineering building, and the SFU Surrey Campus and adjoining buildings. The rain on Saturday finally stopped mid-afternoon so this seemed a perfect time to …

Pattullo to Alex Fraser

CK Wright Photo Trips

Along the Fraser River from the Pattullo Bridge to the Alex Fraser Bridge, there are several interesting pocket sized parks with views of those bridges and the Fraser River, along with walking paths. Brownsville Bar Park, located on the south-east side of the Fraser River in Surrey, has impressive views of the three crossings here; the 1937 Pattullo Bridge for …

Form and Reflection In Downtown Vancouver

CK Wright Photo Trips

I had a very enjoyable walk through the downtown Vancouver recently, photographing the various sights there. While I enjoy photographing natural settings, my other interest is architectural photography. I like the strong compositional line and the reflection from the glass wall in this composition of the Parq Vancouver. Even the traffic arrows add to the flow, as does the Zhang …

Good Friday In The Hood

CK Wright Photo Trips

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. It was a beautiful afternoon wandering around the neighbourhood capturing an ecliptic set of photos. The tulips were in bloom in the small …

The North Side of False Creek

CK Wright Photo Trips

Once an industrial hub, False Creek has made a dramatic transformation to a beautiful area of housing, interesting architecture, and pathways for walking and cycling. Last Sunday I walked the pathway along the north side starting at Science World. The low angle early morning light was reflecting off of the dome and adjacent buildings as I started the walk. I …

Pitt and Fraser Chilled

CK Wright Photo Trips

When it comes to my take on the recent cold spell in Metro Vancouver, I would say that the glass is certainly half full…and in this case, with the other half filled with ice! Prolonged periods of cold temperatures do not happen that many times in a winter and in some years not at all here on the south coast. …
