Just a shot – finally got a chance to stitch this baby together :)
Have a great weekend everyone!

Blogging today from beautiful sunny Vancouver where I’ve just completed 3 fantastic helicopter shoots – one of which included a trip through the Rockies and two of which were in absolutely magical golden hour and blue hour light. Today I wanted to just share the Rockies pics. I’ve flown over them before – the foothills outside of Calgary, but this was far more spectacular.
My assignment was to shoot a selection of properties in the downtown core, but we had 4 hours of flight time, so I figured it was time for a bucket list item.
It’s one of those things. I’m trying to figure out what to say here that can possibly convey what it was like to witness and to photograph them. Lacking as I am in words I’ll go with a poem by Emily Dickinson that I love: “The Mountains—grow unnoticed”
The Mountains—grow unnoticed—
Their Purple figures rise
In Their Eternal Faces
The Sun—with just delight
Looks long—and last—and golden—
For fellowship—at night.
I’ll share the pics of Vancouver too – but these had to come first ;)

It’s a hot one in Toronto! This week we’re creeping up against the 50 degree with humidex mark. There are emergency cooling centres around the city, you can fry an egg on the sidewalk and the AC in my office is broken. Luckily for me… I love the heat. I love it so much that I can sit outside and knit wooly things for people in it.
That doesn’t mean that the idea of a cold dip in the pool after work doesn’t sound mighty fine though ;) and while I was contemplating that I thought of the aerial photography I did of the lake last year, and decided to feature aerials for a blog post. Heat, pool, lake, photography. Yes, that was how that went.
Aerial photography is, no contest, the best part of my job. I love it so much that I’m starting flying lessons this year – let’s see how that goes ;)
