Photographer's Note

I thought I would take a short break from my Croatia photos, but not to worry as I have dozens more to show.

For now I wanted to post a couple local scenes I captured yesterday while out on a stroll through downtown Vancouver.

I called this one Act 1 Scene 1 because the more I look at it the more it seems like a scene from a TV show or Movie. It looks kind of funny that way, its as if the scene here is completely staged.

Of course it's not. I wanted to capture some downtown Vancouver shots with 2 things in mind...focusing in on architecture and people together in harmony. That's what I did here. The glass skyscrapers of the financial district provided the perfect backdrop to the scene.

In the fg is an open area where workers go for lunch on their breaks - its a perfect place to snap some shots, as long as the people don't get annoyed and I try to be quick as possible.

I was actually photographing the 2 people sitting facing each other, when all of a sudden the woman on the phone walked directly into the scene - it was great timing :) If you look closely at the woman sitting eating, I think she got startled by the woman walking behind her.

Hope you like this, I have another one from the same location for my next post.
