Stretched Moments

Long exposure shot (159 s) of Downtown Vancouver, taken from Jericho Beach, February 2014. The music is called Lost Sanity. I made it more than a year ago. Don’t really know the genre, but it felt right for the photo.

Violent Skies

Taken from Kitsilano beach in Vancouver, looking north east toward Downtown Vancouver. March 2012.

Mystical

Earthly lights spreading through the nearby clouds over Burrard Inlet, on a foggy winter night in Vancouver, BC. Taken from Kitsilano beach in January 2014.

A Mad Man with a Box

Took this photo with my phone, as I was waiting for the camera to finish taking a long exposure shot. The music is an extended version of the theme “A Mad Man with a Box” from the original score for the TV show Doctor Who. It’s quite a masterpiece.

Sparkling Gold

Taken at English Bay, Vancouver, in late summer 2013. English Bay is connected to the Strait of Georgia, which connects to the Pacific Ocean.

Dark and Bright 8: Vancouver at Dusk

Downtown Vancouver at dusk on a beautiful Winter evening in February 2013. This is 4 photos stitched together to achieve the extra wide angle. This photo of mine was voted up in interfacelift.com.

The First Day of Spring

I took this at Boundary Road which is the boundary between Vancouver and Burnaby in BC, facing west. The music below is a piece named The First Day of Spring by Mehdi, which I first heard 7 years ago. Both melancholy and hopeful, the music fits the name so well. download: The First Day of…

Dark and Bright 7: Skyline

Skyline of Vancouver as seen from Stanley Park. This is two photos stitched together, each with a 1 minute shutter time.

Frozen Moonlight

This is Lost Lagoon, dreamy, misty, frozen, and only lit by a pale moonlight. There were no lights in a 400 meter radius of that spot, so even this dark exposure needed 30 seconds and some post processing on 200 ISO and 5.6 aperture.
The music is of course none other than Beethoven’s extraordinary out-of-this-world Moonlight Sonata.

Dark and Bright 6: Melancholy

Stanley Park and downtown Vancouver on a cold cloudy Winter night. Taken from the Lions Gate Bridge. “Graphic Processing Unit” on World of Goo – Original Soundtrack

Fabulous Autumn

Downtown Vancouver, early November 2012. Autumn is THE best! Prints of this can be purchased here.

Night Walk

Granville bridge, Vancouver.
With a little bit of emotional electronic aural saturation. (what?!)

Serenity 3: Blur

Sunset at Rocky Point park in Port Moody, British Columbia. This body of water is called Burrard Inlet which stretches all the way to the Strait of Georgia, which is connected to the Pacific Ocean. I used an exposure time of 30 seconds to get this blurry water effect. “Nocturne” by Daft Punk on Tron…

Dark and Bright 5: Far Away

Looking towards south east from the observation deck at Vancouver Lookout at 147 meters elevation. Note: There are tons of slight shades of gray in this photo that may all look like black if your monitor is not calibrated. “Nightcall” by Kavinsky on Drive: Original Soundtrack

Hello, I guess it’s been a year

wow! Today marks the first anniversary of Imaginion’s birth. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since I started posting my photos here. The thought behind Imaginion was to create a place were things were imagined, hence the name. The photos, along with the occasional music, were supposed to convey feelings, moments,…
