The long anticipated #604Photowalk number 8 was finally upon us and everyone seemed pretty enthusiastic to get to some fun and friendly photography that day. The weather was cooperating for the most part (at least it didn’t rain!) and I think we all enjoyed being outdoors. So without further adieu, here are some of the sights we saw in and around UBC.
Not only is Irv Lau (@irvlau) our administrator in charge of logistics, equipment and general stuff porter and tour guide, he has also become our unofficial model. Very GQ.
I’m glad we did see the the blossoms as they make for some pretty photos. Even though the above photo is anything but in focus, I like the effect the blur gives the shot. It’s almost as if Thomas Tang (@tmasoo) and Irv are casually stepping into another ethereal world.
It was at this point in the day where I decided to become a bit more interactive with the people in my viewfinder. I had heard before that anyone can press the trigger on a camera, but that it takes a certain level of social poking and prodding to uncover a really great “moment” or particularly interesting demeanor from the person you are taking the photo of. Here is Vince Chow (@vincechow)
The usually quite reserved Sukhraj Bhattal (@sukhrajb).
Who can be quite animated given the right circumstances.
Thomas Tang, who was oddly without a camera this time around, should be congratulated for finishing his engineering degree (and for making it back to his car without passing out from food fatigue).
One more photo of Vince sporting his blood donation band-aid.
Posed and contrived, I couldn’t help but force my will upon the remainder of our group one more time for the above photo. My only hope is that my abuse of power does not end up causing a violent uprising against me. I would like to express my appreciation and thanks to those who made it out to this last #604Photowalk. It was a fun experience and I look forward to seeing you all again soon!
