Photographer's Note

After a much needed break from TE, i'm back and feeling refreshed.

And what better way to do that than a Holiday Seasonal photo from Vancouver. This is the Christmas Market in the downtown core. You may or may not recognize some of the subjects.

To the far right, the red and green subject is our Couldron, from the Winter Olympics we held in Vancouver a few years back, its now a staple in our community.

I used a long shutter speed here, about 5 seconds, so the people are blurred as they're moving around. And I got a much higher POV than everyone else, i climbed the stairs to the rooftop, i was the only one up here.

In the bg, that large building is the Convention Centre, its located beside the Coloured Sails which I have posted several times. In the far bg, those city lights you see twinkling is the city of North Vancouver, and the North Shore mountains.

I liked the effect of the melting snow on my camera lens, so i decided to go with it and NOT photoshop them out - I think it adds to the festive motif.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all TE members!
