My first time on shooting from this side of Science World. Now that the Olympic Village is open, I will definitely come back.
My wife and I were shooting at the same location. Have a look at her stream, too.
Thanks everyone for their kind comments, faves and visits!
I was able to get out after the monsoon for a few pictures. I was hoping for calmer water but averaging several exposures turned out ok.
The building's former name, Science World, is still the name of the organization. The building's name change to the Telus World of Science became official on July 20, 2005 following a $9-million donation to the museum from Telus. The official name of the science centre was subsequently changed to "Telus World of Science", although it is still routinely referred to as "Science World" by the public. Prior to the building being handed over to Science World by the City, it was referred to as Expo Centre during Expo 86. When Science World is operating out of the dome, it is referred to as Science World at TELUS World of Science, and when it is out in the community it is simply Science World.

Coo coo its cold outside. Coo coo it's cold outside. Ooo coo coo.
Don't forget your mittens.
Hey pal! How do I get to town from here?
And he said: Well just take a right where
they're going to put that new shopping mall,
go straight past where they're going to put in the freeway,
take a left at what's going to be the new sports center,
and keep going until you hit the place where
they're thinking of building that drive-in bank.
You cant miss it. And I said: This must be the place.
Ooo coo coo. Golden cities. Golden towns.
Golden cities. Golden towns.
And long cars in long lines and great big signs and they all say: Hallelujah. Yodellayheehoo.
Every man for himself. Ooo coo coo.
Golden cities. Golden towns. Thanks for the ride.
Big science. Hallelujah. Big science. Yodellayheehoo.
You know. I think we should put some mountains here.
Otherwise, what are the characters going to fall off of?
And what about stairs? Yodellayheehoo. Ooo coo coo.
Here's a man who lives a life of danger
Everywhere he goes he stays - a stranger.
Howdy stranger. Mind if I smoke? And he said:
Every man, every man for himself.
Every man, every man for himself.
All in favor say aye.
Big science. Hallelujah. Big science.
Hey Professor! Could you turn out the lights?
Let's roll the film.
Big science. Hallelujah.
Every man, every man for himself.
Big science. Hallelujah. Yodellayheehoo.

I stumbled across this short film while I was searching for Laurie Anderson's video for this song. Needless to say, I was a bit overwhelmed by the similarities... In a good way!.

“Who is more humble? The scientist who looks at the universe with an open mind and accepts whatever the universe has to teach us, or somebody who says everything in this book must be considered the literal truth and never mind the fallibility of all the human beings involved?” ― Carl Sagan
We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.
- Carl Sagan
Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense.
- Carl Sagan
Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge. - Carl Sagan
Science World at Telus World of Science. One of my favorite spots in Vancouver. Built for Expo '86 Worlds Fair, Science World has seen many changes over the years.

Dear Denali Wind,
I got home safely. I'm pooped from my journey and still have to unpack, but I wanted to thank you for letting me visit. You are so lovely and you are officially one of 5 people whose company I actually enjoy. I will miss our wonderful conversations over coffee. Thank you for my Kangaroo, he will serve as a great reminder of my awesome visit. Maybe I'll get to visit again in the future. Thank you for being patient with me, as I can be a little antisocial. But as you quickly learned, once I warm up, I'm not so bad.
Science arrived this afternoon from getting her faceup done by the lovely Denali Wind. It's beautiful and perfect and 100% Science. I will try and get a better shot of it tomorrow. My camera was being a jerk this afternoon and refused to zoom in.
Thank you so much! I am in love with her even more now. ^~^
Science decided to spend her Saturday locked in her room reading, snacking and drinking coffee. A day well spent I think. I was able to sneak in and snap this shot. Had she noticed me, she probably would have thrown her book at me for not knocking. She's a great roommate. -__-
I'm going to force her to have a movie marathon with me later today.
This room is only temporary. I'm in the process of having a 2 room flat built for her. She's not very happy that she's unable to unpack the rest of her posters, books and all her other stuff. She's a bit of a pack-rat.
*I built this little diorama in about 40 minutes, so it's not great. I used cardboard for the walls, scrapbook paper for the wallpaper and a dollhouse window I had laying around. Luckily I had all this stuff laying around so I made a little quick project out of it.
The side table, her bed, pillows and blankets I made a few months ago. :)
***I am NOT a photographer. So this photo is not the greatest. I have no idea how to work with light and all that fun stuff.
...after a hard working day it's nice to watch a very good science fiction movie in DeathStarCinema...
And to be quite honest, I am as well. Science isn't being sold. She's permanent. Even if she ends up just looking cute on my shelf. I have grown very attached to my little nerd. However, I have become a little frustrated with her recently. Her posing is awesome but not the greatest. While she's in clothes, it's very difficult to position her arms just right. It drives me nuts. And buying clothes and shoes for her that fit her character is really difficult or expensive because I have to get them custom made. On top of all that, I have just lost interest in her. I still want to do stuff with her character, but her shell isn't inspiring me like it use to. So though she's been a lot of fun, she's going to be put away for awhile.
I might be selling her body, I haven't decided yet. Her faceplate is staying with me though. I have no plans to ever sell that.
But I will miss her, so she might be getting an upgrade. I just might be re-shelling her. ;)
I hope everyone had a great weekend. I have to catch up with everyone's photos. :)
Adaptive Optics Sodium Beacon: Laser Guide Star at the W. M. Keck Observatory at the summit of Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaii.
From it's Wiki :: Sodium beacons are created by using a laser specially tuned to 589.2 nanometers to energize a layer of sodium atoms which are naturally present in the mesosphere at an altitude of around 90 kilometers. The sodium atoms then re-emit the laser light, producing a glowing artificial star. The lasers are often pulsed, with measurement of the atmosphere being time-gated (taking place a few microseconds after the pulse has been launched so that scattered light at ground level is ignored and only light which has traveled for several microseconds high up into the atmosphere and back is actually detected).
Science is cool.

I have been wanting to take a picture of science world for a while now and I finally got the chance. For the longest time I was deciding whether or not this picture should be black and white or in color. This is an HDR image composed of 3 different pictures taken at -2, 0 & 2.
Here's the Original
How it was processed:
1. Imported into camera raw to remove Chromatic Aberations and then exported as tiffs.
2. Merged and tonemapped with photomatix.
3. Imported into photoshop and used topaz adjust to correct the exposure and I removed the noise with Topaz denoise. I then used the clone stamp tool and healing brush to remove some distracting stuff from the forground.
4. I then imported it into lightroom where I converted it to black and white, pumped up the blacks, corrected the exposure with graduated filters, added some sharpening and added a slight vignette. I also added a slight yellow tint to the image to give a slight bronze color which imo really gave it a lot of depth.
Taken with a Canon t3i + 18-mm lens.
Taken at f/18, 1/20s, ISO 100 @18 mm.
