Chasing Light

Fleeting light.
Lingering haze.
Calm evenings,
magical twilight.
Day becoming
a sleepless, stuffy night. 

Are we dreaming?

I've always longed for the summer evenings, and nights. Maybe because of the long dreary, gloomy, rainy seasons that Vancouver seems to be encased in for most of the year. It's not a bad thing. For one, we need the rain, and we need the cooler weather. And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one that feels this way, but the city starts to breathe a very different type of energy. 

Because of this, I wanted to capture and recreate the late afternoon, or evening light that streams through the blinds or the tops of trees as the sun recedes behind the horizon. Being winter, it was very difficult without the use of strobes as the light is mostly diffused through the thick layer of clouds. The rain was unbelievable that day, but no one would know unless you looked out the window.
