The high road

Oh. My. God. Will I ever stop talking about the Vancouver Film Marathon? I will soon, I promise. But I did want to post just one more photo because I do like it. This is what the Lions Gate Bridge looked like around 9:30 am on September 12, 2010. I was on the West Van side of the bridge. The haziness was just part of the lens and the low lighting – it was overcast and maybe a bit rainy. I think it looks a lot like a photo from the 40s, kind of like this one.

That’s over until next year, so in the meantime, I uh, signed up for ANOTHER film photo event. Cynthia told me about it – it’s called A Million Little Pictures and that starts next spring. I have time to prepare. Also, they provide the camera – it’s a disposable. I selected the theme, “the people I know”. So you know what that means. YOU’RE getting your photo taken. What? I need to practice. After seeing this winning portrait, I need to practice my portraits and take more photos of animate objects with eyes.

And finally, some actual crafty news, Thursday is the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild meeting. We’ll be sewing! YAY! I just need to pick out my fabric and have it ready to go. I’d love to make it Halloween themed (of course) so PERHAPS it’s time to make a trip to the Dressew on my lunch hour tomorrow.

    Oh, I think you need to keep talking about the marathon! That is one amazing accomplishment. Yes, I like that portrait of the bridge you took. It has atmosphere.
    A million little pictures sounds like fun. May include a trip to Seatle to see it though that may be good.
    I want to go to Dressew on my lunch – waaa.

    (I brought a nice new ball of sock yarn to work on at lunch, so don’t feel too sorry for me! )
