I'm pretty excited right now. So excited, in fact, that I'm publishing a rare, portrait-oriented photo here on the blog. This photo from my Flickr photostream is going to be published in a book about sustainable communities next year. I took it when my job as a research assistant at UBC got me on top of the Vancouver Public Library downtown with the staff of the landscape architect who designed it. It was a rare, sunny winter day and the light was perfect.

In other photography related news I'm planning on purchasing a new camera in the next month or so. I'll share more details when I've got it in my hands. After a few years of using my most-beloved Cannon point-and-shoot, (gold with a wide angle lens, no less...) it's time to move up a little bit in the camera world. Oh, and be sure to check out my guest post on Micaela's blog tomorrow!


  1. Congratulations! The photo is awesome. I don't know the grass types but they certainly are beautiful. I love those colors and shapes. Your shot captures the details so very well. Congratulations, again!

  2. There are a few different types of grasses up there and a lot of dirt, too. Being on the roof is really awesome because there is no fence or wall around the edges. Just wide open views of the city in every direction!

  3. Whoa this is great!
    No wonder you're chosen! Congratulation ♥

    Thank you for the button, I have your button on my blog as well. So happy for you!

    Congratulation again!
