Patience

Another Whistler image. It seems to me (a non-skier) that a large part of skiing (at least at a busy resort) involves waiting in line. It was a very long line, but these skiers seemed to be taking it patiently.

Improvise

When I was in Whistler last week I did not bring a tripod, so when I saw the night scene from my hotel window I had to improvise. A side table, and a couple of books were pressed into service as a makeshift tripod, and luckily I did have my cable release with me, so I was able to complete the 45 second exposure with little or no camera shake. Shooting through the window did make for some weird reflections though.

Through the Window

The first of likely a few posts from Whistler (once I develop my film this weekend). I was at a meeting this past week in Whistler, B.C.  I had an amazing view from my hotel window, and took more than a couple of images at various times of today in various lighting conditions. Winter light to my eyes often has a pewter-like tone, like it did when I took this image.
