Closeups in the Hood

CK Wright Photo Trips 2 Comments

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 …

Here and There in the West Fraser Valley

CK Wright Photo Trips

Over the last few weeks I have explored various areas in the western Fraser Valley . This is really the first year that I have spent any time poking around here and I must say there are some interesting areas and vantage points. Devon Falls is tucked behind residential housing on the south-west side of Sumas Mountain. The conditions were …

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 …

What Lies At The End Of The Road, Redux

CK Wright Photo Trips

Two years ago I posted photos from the Grant Narrows Regional Park and Pitt Addington Marsh Wildlife Management Area which lies at the end of Rannie Road in Pitt Meadows. Last weekend I had the opportunity to revisit the area and to explore other sections. Check out the older posting for comparison. We started off just outside of the regional …

Pump to Dinky Peaks

CK Wright Photo Trips

On Saturday we headed out at first light, snowshoeing in the Mount Seymour Provincial Park. There was plenty of snow on the ground, though very little snow on the trees as there had been the previous weekend on Cypress. The trail rises steeply as it ascends towards Pump Peak, though the views at the top are certainly worth the effort. …
