Dreaming with Lu Lee

In a Gaze (day 1378)

Slip sideways with a fuzzy dream
And carry those loose blossoms
That follow your footsteps
With a delicate clutch,
Simply to answer questions
From far away strangers
With elegant movement,
Shared back in a gaze.


 

As always, Lu Lee (fb, archives) has made simple delight as elegant as a dream.

This shoot was done in the alleys of EastVan. Alleys in any downtown area are a little interesting to shoot in; it doesn’t really offer the same clean style one gets from shooting in a studio with a seamless, but I kind of like things being a little rough around the edges. However, shooting in an alley in a business district during working hours, it’s funny how many businesses really do use their alleys and loading docks. Who’d a thought?

I liked finding that Porsche sitting in the parking lot, conveniently.

Autumn in Vancouver, BC

Posted on 5th March 2015 in explored, nature, wandering

Seasons are perhaps one of the most solid testaments to the dynamic nature of life on earth. It just so happens that in Vancouver, BC, it’s particularly mild with frequent rain. This makes for lovely growing weather for plants and shrubs and sitting around on the beach! It also requires a constant umbrella and scarf once you’re out of those summer months, just in case.

These photographs were taken in October.

Also, there are bunnies in the parks around Kits beach and Jericho beach.

Sculptures of Stockholm, Sweden

Posted on 1st March 2015 in explored, wandering

I always wish I knew or could remember the characters and stories that belong with each sculpture I come across and photograph. I know that a lot of them have information at their base… Perhaps it’s this public art that really makes a person feel like their walking with history.

As I wandered the ancient streets of Stockholm, Sweden I came across these pieces. Some were sculptures, some were probably moldings, and others were maybe pounded our of iron or copper. I distinctly remember saying to myself that I was going to focus on capturing as many arch details above doors as I could.

I’d love to hear if you recognize any of these in the comments below, and perhaps sharing the stories of them.
