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:
- 1202h PST, 6 January 2011
- 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).
