25000th photo in Vancouver

January 6 is known as Three Kings’ Day or the day of Epiphany.

A slow epiphany surely came about over the last few years (hence, the present RTW!), but walking around Vancouver’s famous Stanley Park on this cool grey morning made me realize two things:

  • I really am back in the city where I was born and raised. Since leaving Vancouver in 1994, coming back to visit has always bordered on the surreal. But this time, I’m sticking around for a few weeks, which adds a little more flavour and substance to the present visit.
  • The four-digit number-counter on my camera was close to ‘5000’, which meant exposure number 25000 after rolling over the counter twice already.

After clicking a few frames for the signage around the lighthouse nearby, the following is the 25000th exposure with my Canon 450D:

  • Brockton Point, Stanley Park, Vancouver, Canada
  • EOS 450D camera + EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens : 1/100s, f/5, ISO100

For a bonus, how about two more of my hometown …

I made the three photos above with the Canon EOS450D (XSi) and the Canon EF 50mm prime-lens. This post appears originally on Fotoeins Fotopress (fotoeins.com).

By the way, I also marked the 15000th exposure with a blog post here and the 20000th exposure on Flickr.

      Thanks! Despite the present weather, there’s still a lot that jumps out in a photo, even on a typically cool, wet, and grey winter day. Thanks again for reading and commenting!

      Thank you for your kind comment! The last time I went up the Lookout was waaay back in the mid- to late-80s as a younger lad going to school in this town. I hadn’t considered going back up, but I’ll give it some thought! Thanks again for reblogging and for commenting!

      Hi, Christina. Yes, that first photo is of the Lions Gate Bridge! I’m glad you love Vancouver, but are these photos providing further motivation to get you back to my hometown? 😉 Thank you for reading and commenting!
