Capture El Paso – Photo Competition (2)

Its funny, how pictures take you back. Make you miss the people and places you have been, lived or visited. In processing images for the Capture El Paso photo competition I was really taken back.  I really miss being near family and home.

Here is another image I did post processing on for the competition.

Capture El Paso – Photo Competition

Not many know, but I grew up in El Paso, Texas. I still have family and friends in El Paso and try to get there as often as I can. (Which is generally about once every three years these days). The last trip I made to El Paso was in December 2008. While there I went to go shoot out in the desert by Hueco Tanks.

The Capture El Paso is a photo contest, now in its second year. Its a community project put on by the El Paso Time Newspaper. Basically, people submit photos of the city, its people and culture and visitors vote on the images. The selected images are printed in a coffee  table book and sold. Its a great project with some fantastic participation.

Being this is my home town, a friend reminded me to enter and I am a photographer I had to submit something. The problem is, I only had so many shots taken when I was there in December.  So, I entered four. I would appreciate it if everyone would go check them out, vote and leave me a comment. (they are always appreciated).

Here is one image I submitted. Its from the desert near Hueco Tanks. Thanks in advance for looking at my work on this site:

Canada Place – Vancouver, BC

In my most recent trip to Vancouver, I set out to photo-walk downtown and see if I could get any good Architectural shots. One of the structures that is unique to Vancouver is the Canada Place. Its a Tent Structure that has hotels, fine dining and is the dock for cruise ships. Its a very large structure, and capturing all of it requires being at Stanley Park or in the air. This is a close up of the tent structure.
