Photographer's Note

One of my favorite things to do is getting up super early when the downtown city streets are bare, they seem lifeless, the city is still asleep.

As a photographer, I have the luxury of doing things I normally can't - such as placing my tripod right in the middle of a busy street - which i did right here.
I had enough time to get down really low to the concrete, probably only the birds were watching.

On a personal note, this is one of my favorite photos of the Vancouver downtown core. The reason for that?
I didn't notice until after i took the photo and viewed it at home - but do you recall the Vancouver harbour centre? the 300 foot tall lookout point which i've posted on TE before? Its actually the shadow in the middle of this scene! I've never seen that shadow of the building before. In the WS, i'll post the Harbour Centre to show you, and you'll be able to recognize its shape.

I know that inner city shots look great with tons of people and activity, but this shows the opposite, which can also be attractive - especially if you're there to witness the dead silence of the city.

Have a great day
