Day 18: Main Street
Third day in Whistler, and I spent from 8am to 4pm snowboarding. The pictures I took up at the mountain were more smiley tourist shots, and my mind was not in photo-blog mode. I was in "don't fall on my face while trying to go from heel to toe edge" mode...... anyway, after getting back to the apartment, taking a shower, going out for dinner and then back to the hotel, it was pretty late. After looking at all my pics during the day, including food pics at the restaurant, nothing was blog-worthy. So I trekked out late, hunting down a good shot. Not unlike the night before, I took lots of shots at dark, empty store windows, lights and buildings, and finally I took the above shot. I love the halo around street lights, especially the type that arches straight down. I waited for a car to pass by just to add a bit of something to the picture.... I did want something or someone under the street light.....a couple kissing under the light would have been too cliche...... how about a young kid doing a headspin on a sheet of cardboard? How about a clown in full circus-garb?
