The Skyline of Vancouver looking across "Dead Man's Island".
I am travelling again today & tomorrow, so I may not post.. I have lots of great images from Vancouver & Toronto to share yet.. Watch this spot!
The Vancouver 9pm Cannon. This is a genuine Georgian muzzle-loaded cannon that they must charge during the day and fire remotely. The sound is indescribable! Look to hard and you will see the image is blurry. I wasn't touching the tripod (it was on a remote release) so the compression wave from the sound must have shaken the tripod!
Funny story... When I arrived back in the hotel, I was in the lift with a fellow who saw the tripod. he asked "Did you get any good shots?"
My response, "Yes! I managed to shoot the 9pm cannon just as it was going off. It was difficult to get right."
He just sort of looked at me for a while, like I had spoken Swahili or something, then, just as the elevator door opened at his floor, he said to me as he stepped out, "My wife shoots Canon..."
