What does a photographer do on vacation?

Vancouverites enjoying sunset at English Bay. Apparently, 63 degrees is considered downright balmy by local standards.

The blog was slow this week. For that, I am sorry.

But not too sorry. Mrs. Myrmecos and I have been enjoying some away time in beautiful Vancouver. I will spare you details, other than to report we spent most of our weekend leisurely sampling the city’s restaurants and have finally arrived home to some needy cats.

A proper photographer’s vacation, of course, involves leaving the heavy camera gear at home. After all, schlepping the office with me wouldn’t be a vacation. Thus, I only carried my iPhone. It was gloriously light and convenient; all the photos in this post were taken with it.

Also, since it was a proper vacation, I will now sit you down and force you to view our vacation photographs.

The Vancouver Aquarium in Stanley Park hosted a massive jellyfish exhibit. These are moon jellies.

A pacific white-sided dolphin performs at the aquarium. This is a rescue animal that is unlikely to survive at sea; notice her damaged flippers.

    I am glad you liked vancity. Wish I had a chance to meet you guys and point you to some hidden treasures of our beautiful town 🙂

  2. Glad you got some time away before the baby comes… because relaxing time will be over for the next 20 years once that happens.

  3. I think I see some Leptothorax shots from Vancouver recently added… did you sneak in some mpe-65 time after all? 🙂

    No wonder it’s called English Bay!
