It’s all about the details and this particular weeks assignment was to look at and photograph the details of something. Well this week the moon was the closest it had been to the Earth in quite some time allowing us to see greater details on the surface than normal. It’s not the first time I’ve shot this but it did seem quite a bit closer.
This week’s assignment is a storyboard. Try to tell a photographic story in 3 images. Like all stories, yours should have a beginning, middle, and end.
With Spring Break coming up the kids are going a bit nuts. Always around this time of year there is an increase in hormones and student’s interests start to turn to each other. This storyboard hopefully tells the story of these budding romances and the awkwardness of it all.
So the assignment we go last week was, “This week’s assignment? 10 minutes from home. What the heck does that mean? It means that you need to walk, jog, ride your bike or drive 10 minutes away from home. Not nine minutes, not eleven, but ten. Stop at ten minutes and take pictures – post your favourite(s) – up to three – to the flickr group.”
Well walking from home in Cloverdale does not get you too far or at least to anywhere particularly interesting unlike if I lived in Vancouver let’s say. So what to do? Bike with 20 lbs of gear on my back? Nah. I drive and when the 10 minute timer went off on my phone I was at Barnston Island. It had been a long time since I’ve been there and strangely enough they’ve built houses on the hill overlooking the island! Who would have thought.
The sky was fantastic this day with broken clouds and sun peaking out. Shot one is of the ferry terminal if you could call it that for the flat deck ferry to Barnston Island. I do love the bright colours though.
Photo 2 from this expedition is of the mill kitty corner to the terminal pictured above. This photo was one of the last I took and it’s a reflection of the building in a large puddle in the ferry parking lot. If you look closely you can see the pavement in the sky!

Welcome to my new blog for my new photo sharing site, http://www.stopbathimages.com. My plan is to post info and photos of new shoots that I do. I’m currently doing a new photo project called “Weekly Assignment Wednesdays” where we actually have 2 weeks to photograph an assigned topic.
