A few weeks ago already was Pecha Kucha Night #18 in Vancouver, at the Vogue Theatre. As always, these events are very illuminating and rewarding to be a part of. This night was my third of such nights, and I hope I will continue to get to cover these nights, as I also do it to represent King Kabuz Media and write articles about the events.
I had the fortune to get asked to do a wedding in Kamloops on the 20th of August, at a fun, beautifully planned and executed wedding. I worked with a partner who took photographs of the brides side, I got the groom!
The list of photographs the newlyweds wanted was exhausting! But, hopefully we got everything they wanted and had a fun time doing it!
Every year in Vancouver we host the Celebration of Lights, a celebration piqued with fireworks: Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday, Wednesday it seems every time.
For the first Wednesday show this year, I headed down to Kits beach where I caught some nice shots, and took a few of the lit Vancouver cityscape afterwards.
The key? tripod and wireless trigger.
I took a stroll down to the epicenter of the riots some silly folks in Vancouver decided to partake in after the Canucks lost game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals.
Vancouver reacted to this by showering effected shop owners with love and cleanup efforts that warmed many devastated heart, including writing slogans of hope to the city on plywood put up by the bay. I talked to a person along the street and they said that they had to put a second layer of plywood because it was full of names. I’m wondering if they’ll put these up somewhere for art or a sign of love?
I’d like to shout out to @thefalconer for founding the #thisIsMyVancouver hashtag on twitter, which soon turned into a local campaign for people to share what they loved about Vancouver.
This is what I found.
On June 21st Vancouver hosted the Fete De La Musique in the historic Gastown district of Vancouver, BC. I decided it was in my best interest to go wander around and see what I could find.
The night started off meeting a friend, Indigo, where she was doing a live painting at the grand opening of Hive Gallery on Hastings across from the W2 building. Always a bright soul, and as I departed from I couldn’t help but feel happy; I had my Instax camera with me and had taken a shot a little earlier which, due to the frame of the camera cracking, had majorly over exposed, but Indigo said it was her favorite and I gave it to her.
As I wandered the streets, I was fortunate enough to catch the sun as it hit some of the high rises surrounding the district, giving off a golden flash of light which was brilliant.
This is my Vancouver.
