Photographer's Note

I was there before sunset to shoot the Vancouver skyline that evening but I stupidly broke my tripod . Angry at myself for having wasted a perfect evening , I packed up , got in my car and started driving around Stanley Park to get back home .

As I drove past this statue by the ruad, it suddenly clicked that something interesting could be shot out of it with the city lights glowing in the background . In the past ,I had driven maybe tens of times past this statue and never found a way to photograph it as it always had very strong backlight .

I just had enough time to place the camera on the car trunk and shoot a few photos .

I'm no fan of silhouettes - to be honest , I have a strong dislike for them - however , I did like the final outcome .

The statue is in Stanley Park , Vancouver and belongs to 1960's legendary Canadian athlete Harry Jerome . It must have been photographed by hundreds before but I haven't yet run into one resembling mine .
