I've been fortunate enough over the last year or two that I've been very busy as a commercial photographer. I love it, I've been meeting so many people and working with a ton of different companies. Sometimes though it seems like the only time I get my camera out is for work or when my wife Linda and I travel. So one of the things I've been trying to be more conscious of is to work at creating more art. Going forward I'm looking into selling more prints as I would love to share my art with more people. This blog entry is about a series of images I created and how they came to be.
It all started a couple of summers ago. My family and I were going to a Night Market here in the Vancouver. If you haven't been or know of it, It is a good sized outdoor market with lots of food and little knick knacks that one can buy. The night market is located near a junction Skytrain station. So we parked underneath this Junction, this overpass of Skytrain rails and as we were walking away it had caught my eye. To me, the three separate rails just had a very intriguing silhouette.
This picture was from that that first night. I think I had wrote in my Instagram account when posting the photo that I would be back to shoot this with my dslr camera one day.
So not exactly how much longer it took me to get back and take the photos but it happened late last summer. And I'm glad I did. There is just something about this large infrastructure. The design, the swinging shapes and the raw concrete texture that I just needed to capture.
Here is the set of images that I came up with. I think with the blues and the contrast in the concrete anyone of these would be fantastic print.
Thanks very much for checking out my Blog. I hope you enjoyed my art. Hopefully one day coming up I can get these all printed out nice and big.
