Lions Gate Bridge Photowalkby
Inspired by John Biehler and Scott Prince’s talk at BarCamp on Saturday, we decided to join them for a photowalk yesterday afternoon at the Lions Gate Bridge. I was the only one there without an SLR and my lens didn’t detach, however I still had a great time wandering around for hours on the bridge.
I also wanted to capture a modern-day version of a photo I saw on the Vancouver Archives website, that featured the lions at the south entrance.
I underestimated the time we were going to spend capturing photos although I should have had a clue since it was a sunset photowalk and we met up at 3:30pm.
It was great to see John enjoy his new camera and learn tricks from pros like John and Peter.
I had fun seeing what my little Fuji could do and also walking across the Lions Gate for the first time, ever. I love my little camera but I’m sure not even the pros on our walk could capture the true amazing beauty that is a Vancouver sunset.
You can view the rest of my photos from the walk on Flickr, tagged: “Lions Gate Bridge“. To find out when the next photowalk will take place, you can follow out the “No Compacts Allowed” Facebook group.

Thanks for flaring up a raging case of homesickness 😛 Beautiful pics 🙂
These are fabulous. Oh how I love our city!
Great shots Rebecca! Love the one of the lion! I have a shot of you taking the photo of Stanley Park + Vancouver. Thanks for the link <3 too! lol
Yeah, we had a little too much time before the sunset to get setup but at least we had time to chat and play with gear.
I think your little Fuji camera did a fine job…you even got a funky long exposure shot without a tripod!
My photos are up on Flickr from the walk and I should have a post up tonight.
Ahhhh! Your photos brought back a lot of memories – commuting to UBC every day. Lovely!
