Same View, Different Light

Last month, I was on a shoot and managed to sneak in a shot of this very cliché yet stunning view of Vancouver. I've seen this view many times. I even photographed a similar one last year for a magazine, but it's still as breathtaking as seeing it for the first time.

I managed to get two identical compositions and am continually amazed at what a difference an hour will make on days like these when the light changes so quickly.

Highlight Reel

Wow, it's been four months since my last blog post. Honestly, I don't really have a good excuse, other than maybe Instagram?  I do post there regularly so if you don't follow already, you can find me @kyrani.

For now, here's a little highlight reel so show you what I've been up to and the people and things that caught my eye since my last blog post.  And here's hoping, I start posting regularly again.

Victoria Observations

A few weeks ago, I scored a fantastic AirBnB in Victoria's picturesque Chinatown.  So off to Victoria we went with the boys! If you haven't visited the neighbourhood, I highly recommend it.  It's such a vibrant section of town which is walking distance to pretty much everything - the adorable Fan Tan alley, Dragon alley, Market Square, Bastion Square, Munro's Books, the Royal BC Museum and more.

Victoria is one of our favourite little escapes from the city and perfect for easy travel with kids.  You're getting enough distance from mainland BC to make it feel like a vacation (taking the ferry really does have away of creating much needed separation from your daily routines) but close and similar enough that it's an easy transition on both ends of your trip.

Below are a few observations from our trip last month.

This was taken the day we arrived, cloudy but warm.
