Downtown Vancouver for the Canucks Game 7 Loss To Boston

Posted on 16th June 2011 in events, photojournalism

So, the home team, the Vancouver Canucks, were in the stanley cup finals last night, and it was game 7, and it was being played here, at home. Clearly, as an interested photographer (see my flickr, tumblr) I had to go down and catch it. What I had planned was to catch a very busy crowd. That was it.

How prepared was I for what I saw? I had my flash, my T1i, and 3 memory cards. Incidentally, I was disappointed that I had forgot to transfer the files from one of my memory cards, which as it turned out I didn’t need it in the end.

What I found was something else. Something that started off beautiful quickly turned into something very very ugly. I could feel it, as other people I talked to said they could feel it, deep within my belly. These pictures can explain.
