Holiday Snaps (lazy blogging)

In my usual way, with the Christmas break in full sway, I’ll more or less finish of the year with some lazy photo blogging. First up: Toronto’s Eaton Centre with the 1937 camera:

And here’s Jill Barber, the mystery holiday chanteuse I alluded to previously:

And finally, here’s a view of Vancouver’s Coal Harbour district, from the visit to the conference that Cath just mentioned.

That’s it. I’ve got nothing more weighty than that to say. Happy 2015 everyone… a year in which you will find me skulking about with a camera or two again, and if we’re all very lucky, posting about some science as well.

About Richard Wintle

I am Canadian by heritage, and a molecular biologist and human geneticist by training. My day job is Assistant Director of a large genome centre, where I do various things along the lines of "keeping the wheels on". In my spare time, I tend to run around with a camera, often chasing race cars, abandoned barns, and sundry wildlife.

    Great photos! The bird formation in the last one sure balances out the composition — did you see them coming and wait for the right moment, or set up a tripod for hours and hours?

    • Thanks, Steve. I am sad to report that it was fortuitous… they happened to be flying by as I was thinking of composing the shot, but I did intentionally get them in the top of the frame. Of the two exposures I shot, this was the one where they were best tucked into the corner.

      I agree that the vee of geese balances out the photo. Without them I think I actually wouldn’t have bothered editing and posting this one.
