Urban Reflections #1

Posted by Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 24 October 2011 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

For the next few days I would like to present a series of images that I am calling Urban Reflections. These were taken on September 17, 2011 as we strolled through downtown Edmonton.

Pentax K200D 1/350 second F/8.0 ISO 100 222 mm (35mm equiv.)

Thank you to all who visited and left comments during my absence. What we though was going to be a two week vacation turned out to be a full month. Just having too much fun!!!

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.
