I shot this image at a wedding last year. It was a smallish affair with a minimalistic couple who were just looking to celebrate their love with their close family and friends. While at the home of the bridge and groom, I couldn’t help but admire their simple sense of style and attention to detail and cleanliness. Their condo wasn’t overly large, but the space felt bigger with only the essentials in plain view. Their decor all seemed to be mated to something else and streamlined in an oddly existential way. Perhaps this line of thought is existential in and of itself, but to me, even their laid back and affectionate dog seemed to match.
I must apologize for neglecting my 365 project for the past few days. Although it occurs to me that the only person I am really “harming” is myself. All three (if that?) of my sporadic followers have probably long since moved on to greener pastures. Nevertheless, I have returned and am happy to say that I have been with camera in hand, even though I have failed to post any work this immediate medium. After a slight hiatus, the studios at Highline West (www.highlinewest.com) are back up and running better than ever. With any luck we’ll be scheduling more clients in short order and taking full advantage of our facilities.
While the aforementioned is all well and good, it saddens me a bit to know that I won’t reach the magical 365 number of blog posts by new years 2014. I could have cheated and advanced the current count to the appropriate date (to which I admit the thought had crossed my mind), but I realize that I would only be cheating myself with a false victory. An action that would likely tarnish an otherwise entirely positive and creative undertaking. So without rambling on too much longer, I will leave this (regretfully) photo absent post with promises of interesting and captivating photography in the future.
So the padlock photo I snapped on the Burrard Street bridge last week made it onto the Province website. The link is here. I answered a tweet from @cwistal & @vancitybuzz and by sheer coincidence had the picture they were looking for! There’s a chance the image will make it in the physical newspaper as well. I have my fingers crossed for that little break in the clouds.
So yesterday I did an edit of an entire kitchen unit in a newer condo. Today I present the kitchen sink. As pointed out by one of my Highline West partners, there were a few flaws in the image that I had to fix up and that eventually lead me back to my other edit of the entire kitchen again. I also fixed that photo up after noticing a distinct green cast over the entire image. From where that tinge of colour came from, I’ll never know.
