Tag: Rollei Retro 400S


Another Whistler image. It seems to me (a non-skier) that a large part of skiing (at least at a busy resort) involves waiting in line. It was a very long line, but these skiers seemed to be taking it patiently.

When I was in Whistler last week I did not bring a tripod, so when I saw the night scene from my hotel window I had to improvise. A side table, and a couple of books were pressed into service as a makeshift tripod, and luckily I did have my cable release with me, so I was able to complete the 45 second exposure with little or no camera shake. Shooting through the window did make for some weird reflections though.

A Spot of Life

Back to the Wreck Beach in Vancouver for this one. When I posted this image in a Facebook group, I got a comment back that the bird in the middle seemed like a “spot of life.” Seems like a good title to me 🙂

Another image from Wreck Beach. There are many sections of the Beach which are covered in large rocks. I felt any any moment I would trip and fall, resulting in a broken ankle and/or smashed camera. Luckily neither happened 🙂
