Try this without a tripod! I’m standing in the total darkness of Stanley Park, postioning my camera on a picnic bench, using very long exposures, seven shots in all, to capture this magical city at night. Little did we know at the time, we were pressing ever so close to missing that cruise ship off in the distance you see. We didn’t realize that going through the huge Stanley Park was a one way road, you had to go all the way through the park to get out. It took us out somewhere else and we were lost. By the time we arrived at the debarkation station at the terminal, they had already closed down. We pleaded with them to still let us on. It was a close call. I hope you enjoy what us crazy photographers are willing to do sometimes.
