WestCoast,

What a unique way to show the old (History) and the new, good work. I got a glimpse of it last year from a tourist bus but no shot. Is it behind Robson St?

Glad you like it.
That’s a reflection of the Marine Building on Burrard street by the harbour. A classic 1939 tower, similar to the Chrysler Building.

This is so hard! Waaay too many choices to make. Decision, Decision, Decisions.

Perhaps I might go for something that includes astrophotography Ive been experimenting with! 8)

I think I see history in all of the shots so far...love em...thinking about what is epic historically here..I bet orsan is gonna show up with something great..and I love those Daisy..would love to see what those stones were for, but I bet it was something scary. Still early in the month, and I am anticipating greatness in this thread...there are already great shots here..whoooohoooooooooo.

Korea has (apparently) 5000 years of history. I had a few ideas about shooting temples and palaces and the like, but I thought I'd try and focus on some family history with my picture. Family, tradition, and continuity is a huge deal here, so I hope I've captured a reasonably important milestone in one family's history.

I have to do a challenge themed 'old' for my photography class, perhaps I will be able to combine it with this one. Unfortunately the weather sucks and my new D90 won't come in until Saturday.

Another month..........another struggle to get something sorted. In my area there is one historic landmark, which apart from one tower, the rest is basically a pile of rubble and stones. How extremely hard it is to make this rubble and stone look `interesting`. I have been early in the morning, (catching the sunrise) i returned again a few days later when the rain had stopped and photographed it as the sun was going down. Igot down low,
I scaled the rubble balancing precariously trying for a different angle.
I peeked between holes in rubble for for a `framing`
I waited for a dog walker and a dog.{to add interest}
I captured and snapped walkers trying to give a sense of perspective.
Even the lady in a red coat failed to add `colour`
I returned home dejected, downtrodden, muddy, and my patience is wearing thin.
I have one photograph,nothing special so if all else fails this weekend ,that one photograph will have to do.

Sue

Thanks, Roy, I just followed that link, again, and am enjoying this bit of history..Would love to have been alive, then...all except for no hot water...and electricity....oh, maybe it is better now, have a cup of chilli beans, some crusty bread, and going to go read some more...

Thanks,
love,
patti
