I spent the first weekend of February in Vancouver with my girlfriend and her family. It was a great time and I’m truly blessed to have the people that I do in my life! By no means will I ever claim to be a “big city guy” but there’s something about Vancouver that captures my imagination. It truly is a collection of everything Canada has to offer from coast to coast to coast and everything in between. It was a great opportunity to try out my new Nikon 1 AW1 and as well step a little outside my usual genre and try some “street photography.” I must say I am pretty happy with the results and surprised at how basic principals apply to different realms and subject matter. I may experiment with this a little further as time goes along.
