I love to walk on the streets in downtown Vancouver, and to capture the interesting moments in those familiar places.

 

Urban geometry, light and shadow, strong contrast and precise timing...those are the basic elements I'm looking for.

 

My enthusiasm for photography started with my kids, and it's still on the climb.

*this is the first time i’m writing a testimonial for someone, but i think that .Jianwei. deserves thousands of testimonials. he is one of my absolute favourite artist here on flickr and i think it needs to be said. i remember how excited i was when i first discovered his stream in sept 2011. i simply love how he sees the world and that he shares his vision with us. it is (every single time) a big pleasure to visit his stream which makes me dream, laugh and admire. often i have a whole film running in my head looking at a single shot. he has a special deal with birds, umbrellas, women in red, silhouettes, reflections and humor. thank you .Jianwei., i love your art and look forward to see more. (and i don’t even begin to write about what a great flickr friend you are)*
