Yes, this is the same Wayne as in Meandering in Lotus Land . He is prolific with his camera and you will usually find him wearing his trademark hat. Actually I have never seen him without a hat. If you follow his blog you will become intimate with the real Vancouver. He has a way with words. I manage to bump into Wayne now and again and today we managed to meet up by chance at the Easter Parade of vintage & classic cars at the Oakridge Shopping Centre
Here he is doing his magic with that Messerschmitt KR175/200 in the background. He is very deliberate in his "framing the image" technique. I try to be careful not to disturb the Master in action
He managed to spare a few hours so we went for lunch in Ladner and enjoyed our meal under the warm Spring sunshine where he talked about his recent travels.
As photographers were are always looking for "texture" shots and the river level was much lower than usual
We had a relaxing lunch and then decided to head over to the George C Reifel bird sanctuary on Westham Island
Where there were a Gazillion Ducks there waiting for a handout of bird seed. There were brown ones, and ones with green heads (technical terms) , along with a few geese. I am sure there were more inside but we didn't bring gumboots (bird poop), nor did we wish to spurge for admission
Did I mention that the river levels seemed very low. That is a new floating home community in the background.
We really lucked out with good weather and warm temperatures. It nearly felt like summer. And to Wayne, thank you for allowing us to spend a few hours together. We should do it again sometime soon . . .
