Vancouver: Spring Break 2015

A trip spent shooting film

Story by Simeon Rusnak April 26th, 2015

Andriana and I decided to spend spring break in Vancouver visiting her brother, Markian.

What a fantastic way to spend five days: great people, amazing sights and delicious eats. I wanted to concentrate on shooting nearly everything on film - the Bessa R2M or the Olympus Stylus - and did nearly just that, barely touching my 5D! Here are some of the highlights:

Granville

Granville Island was one of the first stops of the trip. A rainy day spent on the island, exploring the little shops and sampling some beer at the Granville Island Brewery.

Lynn Canyon

We spent a day at Lynn Canyon Park exploring. Surrounded by trees the size of giants, there wasn’t much light to be had, but the views were just fantastic. This, coupled with the edges of cliffs, definitely pushed the limits of my hand-holdable shutter speeds - and it shows a bit in a few of the frames!
