#34 - Splash of Color

I recently visited Vancouver, BC for the first time.  Everyone told me it was beautiful, but I can't say that I agree - it was grey.  Grey sky, grey pavement, grey buildings, grey or black hair, grey to black clothes.   And then there was this one girl - dancing with reckless abandon in a fuscia pom-pom suit and a Mexican wrestler's mask.  She tried to spray paint something on the sidewalk but just made a smear - said she was protesting the high price of weed, and asked me to join her in the fight against the injustice of it all.   I had to decline - didn't bring anything pink and left my luche libre mask back home, too.   I offered to sign her petition, but she didn't have one; she said I could take her picture instead so here you go...

#33 Something With Wings

Here are two things with wings - do I get extra bonus points?


#32 - Signage

This sign was hanging over the doorway of a shop in St. Thomas.  I did not go inside, so I do not know if Zora's sandals are works of art or if he is a starving artist who makes sandals on the side to keep bread on the table.


#31 - Show With Flash

I am learning how to use the speedlight, so be gentle - shot this at a car show in downtown Lakewood Ranch with off camera flash and think it turned out ok for a handheld after dark.  I wish I brought my tripod, but didn't plan to stay that long.

#30 Show Us Your (color) Bokeh

I don't do much macro shooting, but I took this shot of the stigma (I think) with a wide open aperture and got a nice color bokeh effect from the petals to set off the small area in focus.

Pacific time.


#28 Repeating Patterns

Oh, man - we got lines and patterns and reflections of lines and patterns and stuff going on all over the place in this photo.  Do I get extra credit?


#27 Quaint and Quirky

While visiting Vancouver, I took a little walk in the area around our hotel and I happened upon this quirky vintage bicycle front frame with some winter-killed flowers on it.  It doesn't get much quirkier than this.
